Incredible Hulk #268 Synopsis by John Hoffman
1871, a gunfighter enters the ghost town of Whispering Wells in search of Indian burial riches. He becomes cursed to carry out the Indian spirits vengeance after prying a glowing stone out of the hands a dead man. More than a 100 years later, Rick Jones and Betty Ross are hard at work to help Bruce cure himself of the Hulk. Feeling guilty of helping to destroy his friend the Hulk, Rick drives off to get away for a little while. He recalls his rough childhood and events before the Gamma bomb. Lost in thought, Rick drives upon the same ghost town haunted by Pariah. Bruce and Betty hear Rick's cry over the C.B. Excited, Bruce transforms into the Hulk while racing to find Rick. Upon reaching Rick the Hulk begins to fight Pariah but soon begins to tire against the life draining powers of Pariah. Sensing his chance to rid himself of the Hulk Bruce starts to let Pariah drain all the Gamma rays out of him. He soon decides that the power of the Hulk should not be allowed to be controled by Pariah and that it isn't worth a cure. He becomes enraged and lets the Hulk unleash himself onto Pariah. Tired of hearing about the stone that Pariah uses as his power, the Hulk grabs it and pulverizes it into powder. The spirits flee taking the bones and the ghost town with them leaving only the Hulk and Rick who is glad to see that Bruce has realized the good only the Hulk can do.
