Picking up directly after the execution of the Hulk, Bruce Banner was propelled by the bomb after transforming, he later resurfaced in France. He goes to a therapist for a month but hulks out when she insists that he's really angry. He continues bouncing from country to country, before landing in Tibet where he learns from the Panchen Lama. The story ends when Wolverine finally catches up with Hulk.
Bruce takes the alias "David" while in France. David Banner was the name of his television counterpart played by Bill Bixby. Incidentally, he later takes the name "Bixby" in Ireland.
