Incredible Hulk Annual #24 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
This Hulk annual is retells the birth of the incredible Hulk in a very different way. The differences (some minor, some important) include:

(a) Igor (the spy who doesn't stop the countdown) is a Skrull (not a Russian) and his surname is Rasminsky (not Starsky),

(b) Betty Ross is a part of Bruce's staff;

(c) the whole project is about a Gamma laser (not a Gamma bomb);

(d) Thunderbolt Ross is who decides not to stop the countdown;

(e) Rick Jones uses a motorcycle (not a car) to enter the secure test area;

(f) Bruce turns into the Hulk outside (not inside) the room where he and Rick where locked by the military;

(g) Igor, the Skrull, finds out about Bruce's secret and takes him and Rick as prisoners to the Gargoyle;

(i) Igor dies when he arrives to Russia;

(j) Juri Topolov, the Gargoyle, knows how to cure Bruce from becoming the Hulk;

(k) Rick and the Hulk (not Bruce) board the ship to escape Russia.
