Incredible Hulk #400
By Peter David, Jan Duursema, Chris Bachelo, and Mark Farmer
Published December 1992
Agamemnon appears to Betty and asks her to go find Hulk and convince him not to give up on the Pantheon. She does and Hulk comes around to Agamemnon’s plan which was to double cross the Leader all along. Hulk leaps off to Freehold, Leader’s secret commune for victims of radiation that’s buried under a layer of ice somewhere in Canada.
Rick Jones is at Freehold where Leader we learn that Redeemer is now the reanimated corpse of Thunderbolt Ross, which Leader stole 69 issues ago. However, Leader has a different plan for Marlo because he needs to revive both her body and her soul. Fortunately, that priest who was irradiated back in Middletown now has an ability to heal souls.
As they begin the process to bring Marlo back to life, Hydra attacks. Then Hulk shows up to destroy the place, but winds up fighting Hydra at Rick’s request. After mopping up all the Hydra forces, Hulk gets angry that Leader is manipulating him again—he also believes Leader is lying to Rick about being able to resurrect Marlo—and attacks the machinery that’s bring Marlo back. In the fight, Redeemer accidentally shoots the Leader, Hulk laughs maniacally while covered in Leaders blood to bring Delphi’s vision to reality, and Hulk smashes Redeemer’s hood to see zombie Thuderbolt Ross.
Hulk trashes the whole place as the wounded Leader tries to climb into the resurrection chamber. Marlo comes out alive but is catatonic like Ross. As things calm down, Hulk realizes Leader really could bring people back from the dead and Rick realizes he’s condemned his girlfriend to something worse than death.
Then there’s a reprint of the Leader’s first appearance, which included this panel, and a few pin ups, including one by Gary Frank, who will take over pencils in #403.
