%%[[caption-width:300:some caption text]]

A [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk family]] [[BatFamilyCrossover event]] detailing the plot of the supervillain cabal the Intelligencia, a team of {{Mad Scientist}}s, to kidnap the eight smartest people in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, and the reaction of the various Hulks and supporting characters.

Bruce Banner has teamed up with the Red Hulk in order to stop the Intelligencia from kidnapping the eight smartest people in the world (including [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], DoctorDoom, [[ComicBook/BlackPanther T'Challa]], [[AntMan Hank Pym]], and [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Hank McCoy]]).

Bruce is also training Skaar, the son of the Hulk, in order to make him seem like a hero, but also to train him to kill the Hulk when he eventually reemerges. To this end, he arranges several fights between Skaar and the Juggernaut, as well as Daken, the son of Wolverine.

In the end, Bruce assembles a team to take out the Intelligencia and rescue the eight smartest people (as well as his recently resurrected wife Betty Ross Banner) including Korg, A-Bomb (Rick Jones), Namor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and [[TheIncredibleHercules Amadeus Cho]]. Unfortunately, his plan doesn't work and he's the final one caught by the Leader and the Intelligencia as they use the Red Hulk's gamma energy to make all the heroes "Hulked-out" and release Hulked-out soldiers to take control of Washington. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Hulks have fallen.]]

Leads directly into ''Hulked-Out Heroes'' and ''World War Hulks''.

!! This comicbook series provides examples of:

* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: The ultimate fate of [[spoiler: General Ross]] is that he is transformed into the one thing he hated the most and is unable to ever go back to his old life.
* AntiVillain: RedHulk. Technically, the Intelligencia themselves as their overall goals are(from their point of view) benevolent.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Betty Ross, yes. Glenn Talbot, no.]]
* BadassBookworm: Banner.
* BigBadDuumvirate: The Leader and MODOK.
* CoDragons: Red She-Hulk and Samson serve as the dragons for the Intelligencia; Red She-Hulk is more their enforcer, Samson their schemer.
* EnemyMine: Bruce Banner and Red-Hulk [[spoiler: who is really General Ross]] teaming up to bring down the Intelligencia.
** Also, Banner and Dr. Doom working together to get out of the Intelligencia's simulation.
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler: Lyra joins up with the Frightful Four to work for the Intelligencia. She's really a double agent working for her father.]]
* GambitPileup: Practically all of the main cast are playing an angle. You may need a scorecard if you want to keep track of who's supposed to be on which side.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Red She-Hulk]]
* {{Ironic Echo}}: "Say My Name..." Originally spoken from Doom to 'Hulk' is later the last phrase which Banner speaks to Doom after the later has been defeated due to the Stupid Beam created by The Leader.
* LegionOfDoom: The Intelligencia.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Again, the Intelligencia: the Leader, MODOK, Red Ghost, the Wizard and the Mad Thinker.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Played with, as a large part of the Intelligencia's plot is to capture the eight smartest people in the world, including Reed Richards, download all the knowledge from their brains, and put it to use to solve the world's problems. That's right, the villains are trying to make Reed Richards useful.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Samson.]]
* TheChessmaster: Bruce Banner and the Intelligencia.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Skaar to his father; he's helping Banner so he can get a shot at killing the Hulk when it's all said and done.
* TheReveal: Finally reveals the identities of Red Hulk and Red She-Hulk.
* TookALevelInBadAss: Bruce Banner since losing the Hulk, but also the members of the Intelligencia.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: The Intelligencia is trying to build a better world. And they'll use the bodies of hundreds of superheroes and countless civilians as the foundation.
