Just as the Hulks become heroes in the eyes of the world, the Leader pulls his last card out of his deck and a long-planned plot goes into play.
A number of their foes go up against the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and the Hulks nearly destroy “their” town, Vista Verde, in its defense. The rub: No one can see the enemy, under command of the Leader, and the town thinks the Hulks have gone berserk.
U.S. military forces come in and the Hulks must go on the lamb to protect the village that has always loved them, as well as the populace. But back at S.M.A.S.H. HQ, the Leader is using their gamma energy source to blow the state to smithereens.
The Leader escapes through a gamma wormhole and the Hulks toss in the gamma machine in after him. Unfortunately, their momentum carries all the Hulks into the aperture as well.
They awake on the other-dimensional planet of Sakaar, home of … Skaar, son of Hulk and one of the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Continued, natch!
This one began slow but became really interesting once we (the viewers) learn the Leader’s minions are invisible and begin seeing things from the public’s POV. Awesome toon, and next week: Planet Hulk?
