David's attempt at a cure is hindered when Del Frye exposes himself to Gamma radiation to re-awaken his own Hulk. When he discovers the metamorphosis has also cured his chronic health problems, Frye begins to abuse his power to exact revenge on others who have treated him badly in the past, eventually resulting in murder. David must perfect the cure and heal both himself and Frye before more carnage occurs.
