      At Gamma Base, Bruce and Betty are testing the new Transmat, a device that can transport an object from one place to another. Bruce volunteers himself as a human test subject, but during the process, the Transmat beam changes him into the Hulk, who is transported to Betty's end of the beam. The Transmat is destroyed by the Hulk, who then escapes from the base. Betty theorizes that Banner's pattern might still be in the machine, and that the only way of getting him back will be to duplicate the original experiment's conditions by putting the Hulk back into the Transmat beam. Approaching the town of Twilight Junction, the Hulk turns back into Banner, who finds out that a Gamma Base scientist has been disintegrated. Thinking that it was Betty, Bruce attempts to hand himself over to the authorities, telling them that he is the Hulk, but with no success. As Betty feverishly works to repair the Transmat before it is shut down and shipped back to the Pentagon, Major Talbot and his Hulkbusters are sent to search for the Hulk using Banner's Gammatron. Banner finds out that everyone thinks that he has been disintegrated, and meets up with Rick to evade the Hulkbusters and protect his secret identity. As Talbot's forces catch up with Banner, he leads them to an amusement park and uses the fun house to fool Talbot into believing that he really is chasing the Hulk. Rick manages to destroy the Gammatron, and he and Banner escape from Talbot. In order to guarantee the Hulk's capture and restore her fiance, Betty steals an experimental Jetmarine fighter plane from the base and heads off after the Hulk (in reality Banner). Banner has to avoid being destroyed by Betty in the Jetmarine, and stop himself from being atomised for real in the reconfigured Transmat beam.moreless

Only Bruce is told by Jonah of what he saw, and shortly afterwards Betty announces that NASA has chosen her to pilot a science shuttle mission on Shuttle 105. At the same time, a saboteur known as Waldo has agreed to destroy the shuttle for a group of spies, and disguises himself as Jeff. Bruce suspects Jeff to be an impostor, and Waldo traps him underneath the shuttle engines. As the engines are ignited for a test, Banner becomes the Hulk and escapes, destroying the shuttle in the process. Afterwards, Betty is assigned Shuttle 99 for the science mission, and Banner ends up on board the shuttle after Waldo knocks him out and traps him there along with a gas bomb, ensuring that Jonah's vision will come true.

    • At Gamma Base, Dr. Proto is attempting to create a new form of life, and proceeds to draw power from Bruce Banner's new Gammatron experiments against Banner's request. After nearly destroying the Gammatron, Dr. Proto's experiment works and he creates a deadly organism, that looks like yellow slime and can eat through almost anything. That night, the organism is locked away in the lab refrigerator, but Proto forgets to cover the silicon container, and it grows outside of its container once everyone has left. Banner goes to Proto's lab and is trapped in a net while the slime approaches him. He becomes the Hulk and breaks out of the base while the organism continues to eat its way through the lab. The Hulk turns back into Banner, who heads back to Proto's lab to figure out a way to stop the creature. Proto tells him that the life-form is part fungus, and so Banner appropriates a weed killer to halt the slime's progress. The strategy fails, and Proto decides to split the nuclei of the slime. Bruce decides that this a bad idea, preferring to use an electrical charge against the ting, and Proto apparently agrees with him. Unfortunately, Proto was lying and locks Banner away while accidentally increasing the slime's growth rate. Banner becomes the Hulk again and breaks out, and as the slime reaches the earthquake fault under the base, it is discovered that the slime is repelled by the green goliath. The Hulk calms down and becomes Banner, who figures out that the slime can be destroyed by Gamma rays. The new Gammatron is the only thing that can destroy the creature, and so Banner attempts to repair the device before time runs out for Gamma Base.moreless
