Incredible Hulk #19 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
Ryker takes the Hulk to a secret military complex and ties him in a structure that feeds from his strength. Thus, the more Hulk tries to escape, the stronger the cell becomes! And it hurts quite a bit in the process... Hulk finds this out when trying to grab Ryker after the evil general speaks about Betty's death. Ryker wants Banner to touch the bottom using a psychologically talk, arising pains and sins from Jade Jaws' past. And the chained Bruce reacts turning into different Hulk personas. For example when the altisimo general mentions Rebecca (Banner's mom), Bruce adopts the Savage form, his child manifestation. And when a scene of Angela Lipscombe and Doc Samson hugging is displayed, he turns into the Gray Hulk, the teenage Hulk incarnation. The pressure is such, incarnation never seen before by men arise, even the Devil Hulk. But they're still trapped, can't break the handcuffs. Witnessing the experiment, Thunderbolt Ross understands he had no choice but to help Ryker catch the Hulk. Or Betty's body would not be kept in the hidden capsule no more. But he's starting to regret it. Then Ryker moves onto Flux's cell and dwells his mind when talking about his mother. What Ryker needs to find out is how the Hulk works. With that secret he'll be able to help the alien-like creature kept in that same complex. Noticing Ryker's absence and Ross's presence, Hulk turns into Bruce Banner and targets for the heart of his father-in-law, asking him, his long term enemy, for help.
