SECRET WARS #4
During Jim Shooter and Bob Layton's epic SECRET WARS, the united villains, led by Dr. Doom, drop a one hundred and fifty billion ton mountain on the Marvel Heroes and the Hulk must use his nearly limitless strength to prevent the mountain from crushing them all! Meanwhile, Thor takes on the villains singlehandedly and the X-Men form an alliance with Magneto!
ONSLAUGHT: MARVEL UNIVERSE #1
Once again the Hulk takes up a challenge the combined forces of Marvel's heroes couldn't handle, this time in the form of the unstoppable Onslaught! With the fate of the universe in the balance Hulk crushes Onslaught's armor, but his triumph could quickly turn to tragedy when the villain's full power is revealed...
INCREDIBLE HULK (1999) #25
When the Hulk's longtime foe, the Abomination, kills Bruce Banner's wife, Betty, it sends both halves of the Banner/Hulk personality into a downward spiral. Thunderbolt Ross takes advantage of the situation by manipulating the Jade Giant into attacking the Abomination in a fight that could kill both gamma-powered combatants!
WORLD WAR HULK#1
The Illuminati intended to send the Hulk to a peaceful planet far away from Earth, but things did not go as they planned. They learn in this epic by Greg Pak and John Romita Jr. just how badly they miscalculated when the Hulk returns, intent on smashing them all.
