Jim Wilson is dying. He has HIV, AIDS.

Jim was hurt during a protest. Hulk showed up and took him to a hospital in the Mount.

Jim asks Hulk for a blood transfusion, hoping his gamma irradiated blood would cure him. Hulk warns Jim about the risks of becoming a gamma monster. But Wilson insists so Hulk accepts.

Jim gets the blood transfusion but passes away. He did not receive the Hulk's blood.

Hulk laments the death of his friend, and is not convinced he did the right thing by not giving Jim his blood.

Meanwhile, Betty Ross, working at an aid line, receives a call from a man who has HIV. Despite all of Betty's efforts, the guy commits suicide allowing a train to run over him.
