- Not to be confused with the similarly named episode Hulk vs The World.
October 12, 2010
Hulk Versus the World is the 7th micro episode of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
The Hulk battles the Absorbing Man after being startled, and after defeating him is engaged by the US military Hulkbuster Unit, a special force under General Ross designed to capture the Hulk. The Hulkbusters are ordered to stand down by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Hawkeye and the Black Widow, who engaged the Hulk. Ross disobeys the direct order and attempts to fire a missile on the Hulk while Hawkeye and Black Widow fights him. Hulk saves the two from the missile much to everyone's suprise. He then saved the shuttle from crashing before being knocked unconscious by Black Widow's blast and turned back to Bruce Banner. He's taken prisoner and escorted to The Cube, a prison for radiation-powered villains. Inside, Banner warns Dr. Leonard Samson that the US military and S.H.I.E.L.D. only want to try to control the Hulk and the other inmates, not cure them of their conditions.
