One of the Mandarin's missing rings is in
the desert, where it adversely reacts to solar energy, creating rifts in
time, one of which snares Julia, who disappears. Iron Man recovers the ring
with Dr. Bruce Banner, but they are attacked by robots who steal the ring
and deliver it to The Leader. The Leader now has two rings and wants to use
them to go back in time to murder the young Bruce Banner and take his place
when the Gamma bomb detonates, giving him the Hulk's strength. But Iron Man,
Rhodes and Banner have located The Leader's hideaway. In the struggle for
one of the rings, Iron Man and Hulk disappear in a time rift. While the Hulk
and Iron Man fight, Rhodes and HOMER force the Leader to bring them back.
Instead, the Leader leaps through a portal with the other ring and attempts
to complete his plan.
A sequel to this episode occurs on the
HULK show when Bruce Banner encounters Iron Man in Los Angeles, California
in the episode
HAND, IRON FIST.
