Psyklop searched for the Hulk, who had arrived on the microscopic planet K'ai. There the Hulk met a race of green skinned people, ruled by the beautiful Jarella, with Bruce Banner’s brain controlling the Hulk’s body thanks to Jarella’s Pantheon of Sorcerers. After Bruce Banner protected Jarella’s realm from a usurper, she agreed to marry him; but Psyklop located his prey, shrank down, captured and returned the Hulk to Earth. Although without the sorcerers spell to give Banner’s personality reign over the Hulk’s mind, Psyklop was brutally attacked by the behemoth, destroying Psyklop’s lab. The Dark Gods seized Psyklop and, as punishment for his failure, he was banished to K’ai, where he spent months crafting a castle out of a mountain peak, rebuilding his machines and creating a robot to pose as the God of the Mountain, frightening off Jarella’s people insuring his privacy.When the Hulk grew in departure from a second K'ai visit, his foot knocked the micro-world out of its orbit, temporarily causing earthquakes. Taking advantage of the situation, Psyklop created his dreadnought drill to continue the quakes. He also invented his essence urn, to collect the life-forces of every person killed in the quakes. Psyklop awaited the conjunction of multi-universal energies, so that he could present the life-forces to the Dark Gods as payment to be released from exile. While Psyklop was waiting his opportunity to escape K’ai the Hulk returned once again, Psyklop subdued the Hulk and hypnotically manipulated him into attacking Jarella’s subjects. The hypnotic spell was eventually broken by the Pantheon of Sorcerers and the Hulk’s subsequent rampage cracked the essence urn, which exploded, releasing the life=forces of the quakes victims, who took their revenge by apparently destroying Psyklop.
