Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Marvel Team-Up #126 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Hulk is on a rampage in Manhattan and the Police Swat Team is there to stop him. In a crowd of bystanders is Peter Parker, who changes into his Spider-Man costume, hoping to stop the destruction and also snap a few pictures for the Daily Bugle. Spidey engages Hulk in battle and lures him away to a deserted warehouse district. Spidey then hides until Hulk calms down and changes back to Bruce. Spidey takes the opportunity to don his civvies and, as Peter Parker, offers to help Bruce escape from the police. Peter gives Bruce his last five dollars, explaining that a total stranger gave him the money when he was in need, obligating him to use that money to help out another in need. As Bruce heads out of town, he encounters an old man who was the victim of muggers; calling for help he runs into the muggers who start to beat him up. Turning into the Hulk he scares off the punks then turns to the old man. The old man's despair strikes a chord of compassion deep within the Hulk, so the Green Giant hands the old man Peter's five dollars and walks off.
