Hulk is leaping and accidentally collides with a low-flying jet. Guilt-stricken, Hulk rescues the pilot, who is a member of the subversive Legion of Living Lightning; on regaining consciousness, the pilot realizes that Hulk would be of use to the Legion and promises him the acceptance he's always craved. 

On arrival at the Legion's secret headquarters, Hulk is attacked and paralyzed by the Living Lightning devices electric power. The Lord of the Lightning orders the Hulk freed and assures him that he and his group are the Hulk's friends. The Lord also states that the Hulk is essential to the success of their plan of taking over the United States and usher in a utopia. 

The group captures an enemy spy who turns out to be Glenn Talbot. Seeing the Hulk in their company, Talbot is now certain that Bruce Banner is a traitor.

On orders from his new master, Hulk sets out to destroy the Army base.
