Incredible Hulks Annual, The #1 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Continued from DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1.

A glimpse of Hell shows us the torments of recent arrivals Peter Parker (the Amazing Spider who is in a coma) and Death Mask Wade Wilson. And then there's the Earth-616 Incredible Hulk, newly arrived as his counterpart the Infernal Hulk has been released into the parallel Earth. The latter, orange-skinned and horned, comes to the Sanctum Sanctorum searching for his enemy Sorcerer Supreme Bruce Banner. 616 Spider-Man, trapped along with his Deadpool and Bruce Banner, comes to Dr Banner's rescue,; Spidey has Banner cast a spell on Deadpool to make him look like Banner so that Infernal Hulk is preoccupied with beating the living daylights out of his supposed enemy. At Parker Technologies, Spidey introduces the two Bruce Banners and the one from this world explains how he was able to separate himself from his Hulk by magic and banish the monster to Hell. Now that Hulk has grown more powerful in exile and has escaped from Hell, the only way Dr Banner can defeat him is by breaking the Eye of Agamotto which will render Banner powerless so they must find another plan....

616 Hulk is restored to Earth and the two Hulks fight, green vs orange, and in the fight Incredible trick Infernal into smashing the Eye of Agomotto. Spidey binds him and after this Hulk turn back into Banner he begs Hulk to kill him...which Hulk does....

The next day at Parker Technologies, the Interdimensional Translocator is ready to send the three 616 heroes back to their own world. They learn that the dead Banner is now traveling other worlds, Infernal Hulk is now beating up the other Wade Wilson, and that this Peter Parker has repented of his crimes and is going to try to redeem himself in a new guise as the flaming-skulled Ghost Spider. The guys make it back to Earth-161 where they discover a massive hero vs villain battle going on and gladly join in....
