Hulk and Janis Jones are intercepted in middle-air over Arizona: Janis is saved by a jet-winged man while Hulk lands on a rodeo, where four more super-beings appear and introduce themselves as the Thunderbolts. To their amazement, Hulk surrenders until some Citizen V arrives. In Virginia, Gyrich and colonel St. Lawrence are informed of the situation in Arizona. As the leader of the T-bolts finally appears, Hulk is joined by Janis in opposing the newcomers, who seem to have a feud on him.
