- New York City
When web-swinging across the city, Spider-Man happens upon a strange man in a long-coat and hat, and soon learns it’s the Vision. When Spidey tries to help him, the Vision passes out, prompting the wall-crawler to take Vision back to the apartment he shares with Harry Osborne. After checking to make sure Harry is still asleep, Spider-Man rouses the Vision who talks of having seizures.
Unknown to them, the seizures are caused by the Puppet Master, who has recently discovered a crashed alien ship and a robot inside. Using his special puppets, the Puppet Master has been using the “Monsteroid” to do his bidding. The process would interfere with the Vision’s brain functions.
Deciding to help the Vision, Spider-Man takes him to a hospital where he uses machines to try and find the source of Vision’s seizures. Other than learning that the Vision has two brainwave patterns they learn not much else. However, when they spot the rampaging Monsteroid, the two battle it. When the Vision traces the source of his seizures to the Puppet Master’s lair, the Vision uses his phasing powers to knock the Puppet Master out. This causes him to drop his puppet, shattering it on the floor and rendering the Monsteroid inert.
Confused about why the robot he was fighting suddenly stopped, Spider-Man is informed by the Vision of what happened before the Vision departs, leaving Spider-Man to deal with Philip Masters and the Monsteroid.

Meanwhile, back at Gamma Base, General Ross shows Glen Talbot the armies latest invention, a Tripodal Observation Module (aka TOM) a new top secret weapon. They are unaware that the Hulk’s old enemy the Leader, wishes to take control of the devices and is speeding toward Gamma Base to carry out that very task. Later, Betty and Bruce are called by General Ross asking Bruce to become the Hulk again in order to defend the the TOM from being stolen. Bruce isn’t sure what to do, but decides to go and meet General Ross anyway. At the transport site, General Ross apologizes to Bruce for all the hard times he’s given him over the years and consents to Bruce marrying Betty. Bruce decides to go along with the convoy and is willing to employ his powers if need be.
As the convoy rolls, the Leader attacks in a specially made jet, and uses his superior mind powers to levitate the TOM and the truck that is carrying it up into the sky. When the truck breaks free of the trailer and begins to plummet to the Earth, Bruce changes into the Hulk and saves the driver, then continues after the Leader.
Entering the nearby woods, the Hulk is attacked by the Leader who has activated and is now piloting the TOM. As the battle progresses the Hulk loses his temper and smashes the TOM and grabs the leader. However, before Bruce can crush the Leader, he realizes that he’s lost control and panics allowing the Leader to struggle free and escape.
