Wolverine #148 Synopsis by Peter Kowalchick
This issue takes place during the Ages of Apocalypse crossover story and features a future version of the alternate Fantastic Four of Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Ghost Rider originally featured in Fantastic Four Volume One 347-349.

The Baxter Building’s is suddenly invaded by Blastaar and Annilihus while the new FF  are gathered along with Mary Jane Watson-Parker and the toddler daughter of her and Peter, May, while the Hulk restrains a bound Harpy, who is really Betty Ross. The FF had opened their Negative Zone portal  to put her in it and the two were waiting to attack. Peter retrieves young May from the ceiling while Blastaar blasts the Hulk in the face, angering him, and allowing for the Harpy to go free. The Hulk punches Blastaar out and Peter webs up the Harpy.  The Hulk reverts back to his childlike green stage and remembers his enmity toward Wolverine. Peter blasts the Hulk with his Gamma Gun and reverts the Hulk to Bruce Banner. Wolverine slashes Annilihus and is thrown into the Negative Zone portal with the Harpy and Blastaar. The portal is sealed. 

A weakened Banner collapses and Ghost Rider leaves, pondering his place on the team. He is targeted and fired upon by an unseen assailant. Logan goes to visit his love interest, Stacey, a waitress. He sees the FF flare and returns to the Baxter Building. The assembled heroes are attacked by Doombots. Bruce Banner turns into the Joe Fixit Hulk and the Doombots are quickly disposed of. Peter leaves Lurch, a reprogrammed Sentinel to guard MJ and May.
