Marvel Comics Presents #56 Review by (February 15, 2010)
“On the Road” part 3 of 8. First of four stories in this issue, Hulk does not appear in the others. Banner was wearing a shirt at the end of the previous issue; it’s gone now. The story paints a very negative picture of southern law enforcement officers.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Marvel Comics Presents #56 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The other Wolverine is becoming increasingly manic trapped in his own private prison, while the real Wolverine sits in a literal one having been unjustly arrested for murder in a small Carolina town. Meanwhile a hitchhiking Bruce Banner is picked up by a group of young people on their way to a Grateful Dead concert. Events transpire quickly: Wolverine busts out of jail, the false one breaks into a pharmaceutical factory, kills a guard and starts engorging himself on pills to stop his madness; and Bruce is arrested by bullying State cops. Then word comes that the National Guard is pursuing the fugitive Wolverine. The police men holding Banner head to the scene arriving just as Wolverine falls under a hail of bullets.

As nightfall comes, Bruce turns into the Hulk, escapes from the police car and drives off in Wolverine’s pickup, wondering who he should inform about Logan’s death.
