Incredible Hulk #262 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara

Story 1: A woman called Glazier finds Bruce Banner unconscious on Malibu beach (California). Before the tie could drowned him, Glazier takes Banner to house that is made with glass. When Bruce wakes up, Glazier shows him around the house. It's filled with statues of man made of glass. They all seem very real. After a month in Grazier's house, the hostess calls Bruce to a glass room. She wants to turn Bruce into a glass statue using her power, to turn whatever she touches into glass. Bruce starts turning into glass as he turns into the Hulk. The transformation heals the Hulk from the Glazier's spell. The weight of the Hulk breaks the glass floor and both fall to the sea. Hulk easily reaches the surface but Glazier touches herself, turning into a glass statue. Hulk leaves while she lays standing at the bottom of the bay.

Story 2: Bruce Banner sees how a kid runs from his parents, saying that they are not his real parents. The parents seem like alright people, but Bruce will discover that the kid was right. The kid is not even human, he is a Krylorian, a monster who can take on any form. The monster did not remember his true self because the adoptive parents suministrated him special pills. When the monster "wakes up", he fights the Hulk. As the Hulk is winning, the father tries saving his "son". Hulk asks the man why the man was helping a monster. But the father asks the Hulk how he can call anybody a monster. Hulk looks at himself, and realizes that he is also a monster and leaps away.
