Synopsis / Summary / Plot

World War Hulks: Hulked-Out Heroes #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Hulkpool carries Captain America to Baron Zemo's missile where they gain control of the rocket and steer it to Germany where they use it to blow up the Red Skull's castle, where Adolf Hitler is in hiding. Back in America they are hailed as heroes but H'Pool is plucked away by Bob, Agent of Hydra, via the time machine. [It is here revealed that in this timeline, Thingbeard became the first President of the United States—and show up later in the issue on the one-dollar bill.] Bob has found a way to work Hulkpool into the present gradually, warning him not to do anything that would affect history. And so... in Hell's Kitchen, H'Pool saves a kid and an old man from being hit with radioactive material, prevents an arrogant surgeon from being injured in a car accident, pulls an experimental spacecraft down to Earth before its occupants are bathed in cosmic rays, bashes Stone Men from Saturn to rescue a lame American doctor, squishes a spider before it can bite a high school kid, helps an American industrialist avoid injury on a visit to Vietnam, and protects a scientist and a kid from the explosion of a gamma bomb. Finally, Bob puts Hulkpool down in the fancy gentleman's club where we first saw Deadpool in HULKED OUT HEROES #1. As HP tries to kill DP the latter resorts to bigger and bigger weapons to fight his foe. At this point, Bob is caught by an AIM tech who discovers what a mess he's made of this alternate timeline he's accidentally created; Bob clouts him over the head. When Deadpool learns that this monster is his future self, he is delighted—but H'Pool's lesson is that killing is wrong and then he proceeds to kill Deadpool. Bob appears and we learn he is worshiped as a god in this timeline (see the Devil Dinosaur bit from issue #1) before he brings Hulkpool back to the present. Hulkpool leaps off to find his pal Red Hulk, stranding Bob in the desert....
