Synopsis for “When the Monster Wakes!”
Continued from last issue… With Betty locked up with the Hulk, the leader of the Lords of the Lightning hopes that it will prove to be a bargaining chip to force General Ross to do his bidding. However, when the Hulk revives, he remembers Betty as a friend, and Betty begins trying to talk the Hulk into helping free the base. However members of the Lords of Lightning storm into the room and blast the Hulk with their lightning weapons, causing him to change back into Bruce Banner, and Betty faints.
Meanwhile, Glenn Talbot manage to overpower one of the guards and take on his guise, while the rest of the Lords flee the air force base to enact the next part of their plan, Talbot rounds up Banner, Betty and General Ross. Banner appeals to Ross that the Hulk is the only one powerful enough to stop the Lords of the Living Lightning who are now getting ready to deploy their stockpile of missiles at their secret base. Using a duplicate of his old Gamma Ray device, Bruce bombards himself with Gamma radiation once more triggering his transformation into the Hulk.
The Hulk then leaps to the Lords of the Living Lightning base, and attacks them head on, causing their missiles detonate within their base, destroying it totally, seemingly killing all the Lords, and leaving everyone to believe that the Hulk is dead as well.
