Incredible Hulk #277 Synopsis by Carl Joseph
Having finally defeated thier hated foe: The Hulk, the U-foes intend to go down in infamy as the ones who slew the Hulk by displaying his execution of international T.V. The U-foes international broadcast from the gamma base is picked up and seen by civlian and super heroes alike. Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Alpha Flight, and the Soviet Super Soldiers, are among the heroes who view the pitful form of Bruce Banner hanging and helpless on an anti radiation grid which prevents him from affecting the change into the Hulk. The heroes equally are as helpless in helping him because they are unable to track the signal of the broadcast, due to the fact that Vector, the U-foes leader, is repelling their tracking attempts [Doc Samson a friend of the Hulk, however, recognizes the site, and shows up next issue]. There is hope though as the other Hulk friends: Rick Jones, Bereet and Betty Ross come to Banner's rescue. Bereet unleashes her robotic creations to engage and distract the U-foes long enough so that Dr. Banner is freed and changes into the Hulk. Once free, the Hulk makes short work of the U-foes. He takes out the radiation welding X-ray by using the selfsame anti-radiation grid on which he himself was just hanging from. He defeats the deadly gaseous Vapor and the super strong Iron Clad by turning them accidently against each other. And Hulk delievers the Coup de Grace by overcoming Vector's matter repelling powers and crushing his hands!
