24 page Hulk story "Vs. The Metal Master!"

Characters FEATURE: Hulk; GUESTS: Thunderbolt Ross; Betty Ross; Rick Jones; Teen Brigade (1st); VILLAIN: Metal Master (1st)
Synopsis Finding his transformations more and more difficult using his gamma ray machine, the Hulk with Banner's brain also finds that he has Banner's features when he zaps himself to face the alien invading Metal Master and his head does not transform (He has to wear a Hulk mask until the change is complete); The atom manipulating power of the Metal Master is too much for even the Hulk and while he is down for the count, Ross captures him; Rick forms the Teen Brigade with some of the same civic minded fellows who dared him to sit next to an atomic blast in the recent past; Hulk breaks free of Ross's bunker, changes back to Banner, tells the Teen Brigade how they can help him beat the Metal Master, changes back to the Hulk, creates a monster gun and then pulls off one of the boldest victories against one of the most powerful aliens Marveldom has ever seen. (Whew!)
