After the Incredible Hulk was exiled to space by the Illuminati, and his ship fell through a wormhole and crash landed on the barbaric planet of Sakaar. The weakened Hulk was captured and taken prisoner by the Red King's guards. He was taken to the Red King's arena were he was to battle the strongest gladiators of Sakaar. The Hulk persuades Hiroim, Elloe, Korg, and Miek to join forces with him in taking down the Red King. The five of them created an upraising that quickly spread through the inhabitants of the planet. The Red King sent his personal guards-woman Caiera the Oldstrong to kill the Hulk and his new allies, in order to put an end to their rebellion. Caiera and the Hulk engaged in a battle, which ended virtually in a tie, the Red King immediately released the plague of the Spikes, which were also alien to the planet to Sakaar. These cosmic parasites began to destroy everyone in their path, even the Red King's own men. This atrocity caused Caiera to join the hulk and his allies. These six warriors took on the name of Warbound (which explained their circumstances), they battled ferociously to free the Spikes from the Red King's control, soon after that victory the Hulk defeated the Red King and married Caiera.
