Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Tales to Astonish #84 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
Hulk visits Thunderbolt Ross' base looking for Betty Ross. But the base is deserted. Hulk decides to ask the Avengers for help, and leaps until reaching New York. To prevent others from recognizing him, Hulk puts on a coat and a hat (!)

Suddenly, the Sub-Mariner is seen rushing out of a movie theater. This links to Subby's story in this comic.

Hulk learns that Glenn Talbot is awarded for preventing the Boomerang from stealing the Orion Missile. The missile is taken to Cape Kennedy, and Ross' base gets shut down.

Police discover the Hulk and start chasing him. Hulk escapes without fighting back. 

During his escape, Hulk saves a man. Witnesses believe the Hulk is well intentioned.

Meanwhile, Rick Jones is paid to drive a car to New York, ignoring the evil intentions of his boss.
