Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Incredible Hulk Annual #7 Synopsis by Morten Pedersen
Iceman and Angel are enjoying life at Angel's home when Master Mold Sentinel Supreme attacks them. The Sentinel defeats Iceman and puts him in a compartment. Angel flies away to Gamma base looking for the Hulk's help. The Sentinel follows right behind him and when Angel is trying to warn Doc Samson of the threat, Master Mold knocks Angel out with a blast.

Both Doc Samson and the Hulk try stopping the giant Sentinel but little they can do. Finally, the Hulk leaps and grabs on the Sentinel's leg as it flew away to his giant space station; the Hulk passes out by the lack of oxygen.

At the station, the Sentinel puts the three heroes in specimen tubes specially forged to secure their containment; but the Hulk was placed in the Blob's tube which proves very unsuccessful to contain his might.

When all heroes are free, a battle with Master Mold follows, where the Hulk is knocked out by a discharge of a million volts. Master Mold reveals them that he was Steven Lang, an enemy of the X-men's (Uncanny X-Men #90 to #100). But Angel states that Steven Lang is alive in a government hospital, brain dead.

The Hulk recovers his senses and attacks the Sentinel, this time destroying most of his robotic body. Almost unable to move, Master Mold sets the fusion reactor to overload to destroy the station, and die a robot killing the heroes. Iceman and Angel enter a spacepod, the Hulk kicks it to Earth, and then falls to the ocean; all survive the fall. Happy that Angel and Iceman call him a friend, the Hulk leaps away.
