The plan for world domination created by the Red Hulk, Leader, MODOK, and Samson has been discussed in cryptic terms for quite a while now. It finally dawned on someone that perhaps they should begin to explain what the plan is instead of just going through the motions.
Banner, A-Bomb, and Korg storm the U.S. Defcon 1 Survival facility in Bowland, AZ. When Banner tries to extract Betty from the base, she refuses to go, claiming that he's lost his mind siding with the Leader, helping him to capture Reed Richards and the real heroes. Glen Talbot, her bodyguard, throws her into a bomb shelter normally reserved for the current President.
While The Leader watches from his stolen, modified S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier Banner and the other heroes launch an assault on them. The Leader realizes that the Banner in Arizona is a fake and deactivates his image inducer,revealing Amadeus Cho behind the illusion. Banner and Skaar make their way to the lab where they begin to disconnect the kidnapped super-geniuses from the Liddleville Machine, which keeps them trapped in a fantasy simulation. Skaar demands to know what's going on. Banner admits he's using his friends and playing every possible angle to save Betty and the world from the Leader.
Banner's plan works to near perfection. He did not count on the Red Hulk - who broke into a separate section of the ship - to be captured. This allows the Intelligencia to use him as the power source for the Cathexis Ray and transforms their A.I.M. volunteers (A.I.Marines) and Banner's strike force into red hulks.
Banner suddenly wakes up from a nightmare. Betty asks if it was "that fight" again. She reminds him that he was the savior of that day. He is unaware that he's been plugged into the Liddleville Machine.
As you can imagine, this leads into the next mega-event "World War Hulks". If that crossover is anything like this one, you can just get Incredible Hulk and look the rest up on Wikipedia.
4 webs. Great story and killer art. After a few years of preparation and in some cases spinning their wheels (at least in the adjective-less Hulk), this has proven to be an all-out action romp that is quite entertaining. Nice to see that these guys DO know how to tell a story.
