Followed by the banner U.S. He is declared a fugitive by the army and Ross, whose real motive is to make the Hulk a weapon.
Five years later, Banner works at a bottling factory in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and continues to seek treatment for his condition. He also talks on the Internet with a colleague he knows as “Mr. Blue”, and he calls him “Mr. Green”. In addition to all this he is also learning yoga techniques to keep his anger under control, and has not turned into a Hulk even once in the last five months.
One day while working in the factory, Banner’s finger is cut off, and a drop of his blood falls into a bottle, which an elderly man living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, drinks, and gets a gamma disease. Ross tracks the banner using the same bottle, and sends a special forces team led by Emil Blonsky to capture him. As Blonsky arrives, Banner transforms into Hulk and defeats Blonsky’s team.
After learning from Ross how Banner became the Hulk, Blonsky also voluntarily agrees to be injected with a similar serum, which gives him better speed, strength, and agility, but distorts his skeleton. , And his decision-making ability begins to deteriorate.

A cut on the forehead of the stern causes some drops of banner blood to fall, causing the stern to change as well. On the other hand, Blondsky starts roaming all over Harlem. Knowing that only Hulk can stop Blonsky, Banner tells Ross to release him. He jumps from Ross’ helicopter and transforms into a Hulk after falling to the ground.
