Hulk #171 (1974)

This issue starts with Hulk captured by Talbot and brought to Hulkbuster Base #1.  When the plane lands, they’re greeted by Betty Ross and Jim Wilson, but also by two supervillains who have taken over the base…Rhino and Abomination!

Hulk gets out of his cage and fights them–but he gets bored pretty quick.

Abomination and Rhino go after Hulk at the same time. Yeah, it’s an old joke.  But it still works.

At the end of the issue, Colonel Armbruster drops a big cage on Hulk and captures him.

Creators: Gerry Conway, Herb Trimpe
