Incredible Hulk #461 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
While some Trolls carry a skinny Maestro to a Grand Canyon area, General Thunderbolt Ross encounters his son-in-law Bruce Banner at a coffee shop that's near by. Ross, gun on his hand, asks Bruce to come with him. But the family reunion is interrupted by the Destroyer (god slayer robot created by Odin) and a group of Trolls that are searching for the Hulk. When Ross and Banner get out to the street, Bruce saves his father-in-law's life from the Destroyer's first attack and turns into the Hulk beginning the fight. The battle takes them to the Canyon area where the Maestro was brought. There was no clear winner until the Asgardian unties a supreme punishment against the green giant that leaves him bleeding and bent on the floor. That's when Hulk finds out that the spirit driving his oponent was the Maestro himself. Hulk's aura enters the Destroyer and provokes an implotion that defeats the robot, causing an avalanche that buries the Trolls and the Maestro. When Bruce is found by Colonel Cary St. Lawrence and her army, Ross orders to put down the guns offering a cigar to his long time enemy. Special guests: Betty, Rick, Marlo.
