Summary: The Avengers continue their battle against the gigantic "Hulk" created by the merged Greek villagers. They are aided by Dr. Bruce Banner, who transforms into the true Hulk and merges with the gigantic version created in part by his energies. Once inside, Banner wins control of the Hulk-like behemoth and manages to split the villagers back into the original forms. Meanwhile, Silverclaw continues to battle the source of this meance, Diablo. She manages to hold him at bay through an impressive display of battle skills and willpower. She manages to keep him there long enough for Wonder Man and Triathlon to show up and help take the villain down. Once captured, Diablo is revealed to be a mere puppet of the true villain and dissolves. Simultaneously, the team is being observed by Kang and his son, the Scarlet Centurion...who happens to bear a striking resemblance to Marcus Immortus!

NOTE: Once again, Carol is relegated to being a background fighter. However, if the new Scarlet Centurion does end up being a variant of Marcus Immortus, look for Carol to get some much-needed limelight!
