AXIS | Comics

Following Avengers/X-Men War, Captain America decided to form a team of The Avengers with human and mutant superheroes from X-Men. They were almost immediately troubled by Nazi super-villain Red Skull has stepped into war-torn island nation of Genosha to claim the powerful mind of Professor Charles Xavier from his corpse and to create an army to rule world in his vision. With his new-found psychic powers, Skull decides to re-ignite the age-old war between humans and mutants to eradicate the latter race from Earth forever but Avengers Unity Division came in his way.

Red Skull then escaped to Genosha, turning it into a secret mutant concentration camp where his army of S-Men tortures and ran experiments on mutants. Upon hearing about Skull’s activities, mutant terrorist Magneto arrives at Genoshan island nation to confront him only to be captured and tortured by Red Skull. Help came in form of Havok, Rogue and Scarlet Witch, who broke in to help him back to his feet again. In a blind fury, Magneto slays the entire fleet of S-Men assembled there as well as Skull himself with his enhanced power boosts from Mutant Growth Hormone.

Everyone present there thought his menace was end for good, only for the villain to re-appear as the terrifying Red Onslaught. As Red Onslaught, Red Skull spreads his message of hatred worldwide to wage a new "World War Hate". Overwhelmed by Onslaught's power, Wanda Maximoff briefly gave in to him and Magneto were tossed around to one of the camps where he finds Cyclops, Genesis and Kid Omega all captured. Genesis got stabbed by Ahab while Cyclops and Havok were fighting but then Colossus, Nightcrawler and Storm brings the cavalry of other heroes in.

In Los Angeles, The Avengers came across Plantman and are exposed to some sort of rage pheromone emitted by him. This caused Sam Wilson to insult Thor to get hit by Jarnbjorn, then Vision crashing Odinson through Quinjet and Doc Green getting angry. Sunfire suddenly attacks Wasp for no reason at all and then Iron Man finally put a stop to this madness by taking down Plantman. With other fractured teams of The Avengers, Inhumans and X-Men, Iron Man arrives to face Red Skull in his newest form but then the latter unleashes two Adamantium Stark Sentinels on them.

Skull had Tony secretly build those killing machines during Civil War under his evil influence to fight all heroes against his reign. When seriously outmatched by Stark Sentinels, Rogue suggested Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch to cast a spell that would invert Skull's moral axis and let Charles Xavier take over to stop Onslaught but didn't work at first for Nova's lack of experience. They reassembled once again only to fall, when Magneto arrives with an army of super-villains to buy Strange and Wanda time to complete their inversion spell but Stephen is taken out and Doctor Doom stepped in to help complete the spell.

Now their moral axis reversed, major super-villains like Absorbing Man, Carnage, Deadpool, Enchantress, HobgoblinJack O'LanternLoki, Mystique and Sabretooth turned into heroes and Doom was gone. Skull's body was left behind and a stir caused among the heroes regarding whether to wake him up to free Xavier or let The Avengers take custody of him. Meanwhile, X-Men members of Jean Grey School For Higher Learning have gathered from Genosha by Evan Sabah Nur turned a new Apocalypse to rule entire mankind by releasing a gene bomb to wipe out existence of all humans from New York City.

Taking a new alias for himself as Bruce Roberts, renowned scientist Robert Bruce Banner; an expert of Gamma radiation who is also known as the alter ego of The Incredible Hulk is wandering across the U.S. countryside as a loner to hide from the rest of the world and the government as well. But the more he tries to hide from the civilization and the constant rampaging nightmares of Hulk, his alter ego always finds a way out of his feeble psyche to cause massive destruction.

Despite riding for Kansas, he dropeed on Faulkner and took a room on rent for the night. As he constantly gets the nightmare of turning into the green goliath and wrecking havoc, he finds out it all happened in real time and wasn’t a nightmare during sleep at all. An action, Banner is unable to prevent from happening over and over again in spite of his best of efforts. So, the next day he volunteers to help the town by pushing the limits of his mortal body till dusk.

Hulk by John Byrne and Ron Garney | Comics

Banner managed to befriend Sheriff Jonas Tolliver of Faulkner, who invited Bruce to stay at his place for the night. The next day, Banner suddenly fell in sick and turned into Hulk again before tearing everything apart around him. The green giant decimated the nearby farms, barns and every other establishment like a raging storm and people could do nothing to stop his rampage. When his path of destruction crossed with Sheriff Tolliver himself, he pointed his gun at the monster although knowing it would do nothing.

Surprisingly, Hulk somehow managed to pull his punches and turned into Banner again before being taken into police custody. Upon putting Banner behind bars, Sheriff Tolliver calls the Mayor and updates about the situation so that he can call in The Avengers to take Hulk in. As Iron Man was assembling Scarlet Witch, Vision and Wonder Man to take Banner in, reports of a commercial airliner being destroyed by the Hulk hits TV.

As he frequently turns into the Hulk and goes on rampage, he meets the Man-Thing, who reaches to the swamp and is abducted by Owen Candler. A small group of Avengers consisting Iron Man, Vision, Wonder Man and Scarlet Witch arrives in time to save Banner from Candler and his evil plan but Banner turns into the Hulk again and engages in a battle with these mighty members of The Avengers and that's not the end of all.

Hulk eventually meets his long time rival and one of the only few people who can actually take him down; the feral X-Man called Wolverine and they both did a number on each other after a long time. When they are both exhausted and done for, The Thing of the Fantastic Four awaits for his fair share of clobberin' time with the Jade Giant. All these time, the Hulk’s actions were being secretly controlled by the villainous Tyrannus.

Hulk by John Byrne & Ron Garney

Legendary comic-book talent John Byrne (Alpha Flight, Uncanny X-Men) envisions the Hulk like no other and when artist Ron Garney (Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America) aids him with his extraordinary drawing skills in doing that, a great saga is to be created. This two industry giant worked together for Marvel Comics back in 1999 with the re-launch of the new ongoing series featuring the green goliath after the first volume previously ended following its 474 issue run.

Trail of Mindless Destruction

Byrne and Garney pitched the long story without a big core plot with only the green giant meeting many heroes and villains and fights his way out as well as with his own demons. Although, the story pits the Hulk in the way of many important characters of Marvel Universe, having fight against them too at some point but overall, the entire arc serves as a personal journey for both Banner and Hulk.
