Incredible Hulk #272 Synopsis by Graeme
The Hulk returns to Earth from Rocket Raccoon's world, arriving in the Northern part of Canada/US. After reverting back to Banner's form, he seeks shelter and finds it in a nearby cabin, which appears to be abandoned. He soon discovers some dead people inside who have, in fact, been eaten. Horrified, he tries to leave only to find the Wendigo at the entrance to the cabin. The Wendigo nearly succeeds in eating Banner alive, but Sasquatch saves him. While Sasquatch attempts to keep Wendigo at bay, Banner realizes that his fear has not triggered the change into the Hulk. Banner,believing that he may in fact be cured due to recent bombardment of radiation, realizes the desperate need he has for the Hulk's power to survive the Wendigo. He therefore triggers the change through a genuine desire to change. This results in Banner's ability to control Hulk's form. Hulk fights a vicious battle with Wendigo. Sasquatch realizes that the only way to defeat him is if they both fight Wendigo together. It's impossible to kill Wendigo, but if he can be subdued long enough, a spell can be generated to destroy the Wendigo curse. The battle ends with Hulk and Sasquatch crushing Wendigo "sandwich"style with the two large trees.
