What happens in this book, is that the ultimate savage Hulk, which is the Hulk that were talking about, is confronted by a future version of himself, that wants to only to do some reasoning with him. But the Hulk refuses to listen and because of theories from a man that is standing nearby saying to the Hulk that people think that he is stupid, a huge duel between the Hulk and the future comes forth. They both trade tremendous punches that knock each other around. Many people that are witnessing the battle accuse the future Hulk of being an enemy when he is misunderstood for the purpose for the reason of his presence. That people are accusing him to be causing more destruction then a hurricane that destroyed parts of a city in the previous issue. Now the people are hoping that the Hulk will stop the future Hulk. And then, at some point during the battle, the future Hulk manages to finally have an opportunity to speak to the Hulk and to talk to him about some important things that he needs to understand about himself, such as an injury to his brain, and his involvement with Onslaught. The future Hulk also mentions that he came to the time that the Hulk lives in recently, to help out the Hulk, to tell him that he is afraid of what is happening to him. However, after when the Hulk hears the word AFRAID, he becomes furious, picks up and tosses the future Hulk away, and then goes berserk destroying things within his surroundings, causing a panic. The future Hulk tells the Hulk that he has more things that he needs to talk to him about, but his time was running out. So he vanishes, with the Hulk thinking that he is running away like others. Soon after the future Hulk disappears, the Hulk states that he just wants to be left alone.
