Hulk’s participation in this issue is minimal, largely joining in battles and standing around in a group.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Infinity War #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The Magus has the Infinity Gauntlet in his possession and Adam Warlock as his prisoner. The mystic heroes arrive on Earth to build a telepathic resistance to Magus’ encroaching reality. Dr.Doom and Kang the Conqueror seize the opportunity to try to take the Infinity Gauntlet from the Magus but fail; during this confrontation the Magus discovers that his Cosmic Cubes are gone. The Living Tribunal defers the decision to the catatonic Eternity; Galactus uses Gamora to enter and cure Eternity, who grants that the Infinity Gauntlet be re-empowered, unaware that the device is in the possession of the Magus. With his new godlike power, the Magus stops Quasar from activating the Ultimate Nullifier and traps Warlock upon a mystical cross. The Earth heroes take this opportunity to attack while Magus is still unaccustomed to his new powers but they are diverted into a trap. Thanos, though, manages to get through to the Magus’ fortress only to confront his double. A gloating Magus raises his Gauntleted hand to finally destroy Warlock.

Also in this issue: Pip the Troll, Moondragon, Drax the Destroyer, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Sleepwalker, the Silver Surfer, Nova, the Watcher, and many others (from the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, X-Factor, New Warriors, Alpha Flight).
