    Summary

    It's little wonder, with Bruce's history, that he doesn't do well with physical contact. But that can change.
    ---
    The reaction is instantaneous.
    Banner’s entire body whips away from Thor, violently yanking his arm from Thor’s grip and sending him sprawling onto his back once more. Using his hands, he drags himself backwards, away from whatever perceived threat Thor had suddenly become. His breathing is rapid and heavy, his eyes wild. There’s a tense moment where Thor wonders if Banner is about to change again.

    Summary

    Captain Rogers has let Doctor Banner have his time alone for a year now, but with General Ross now Secretary of Defense in the current Administration (Trump), the Good Captain needs to locate the on-the-lam Doctor after being 'threatened' with the Sokovia Accords (which is the Mutant Restration Act rehashed and now on a global scale).

    So Steve sends out his old war buddy, Logan aka The Wolverine, to track down and bring back the low key Banner... but not without some help. Enter She-Hulk.

    This odd couple have to locate the World's Strongest Man as well as try and figure out how to work together without killing each other.

    Meanwhile, The Avengers pommel each other in a brutal Civil War and are broken asunder. And when Steve Rogers busts Team Cap out of the Raft... Ross decides to take matters into his own hands. The aged General winds up making a deal with the Devil so to speak and has the altered Samuel Sterns do the unthinkable.... turn Ross into that which he hunts.... a Hulk.

    Get ready for Hulk smashing action and loads of feels as Jen tries to get Bruce to come back home and Hulk & Wolverine have a fist-to-cuffs disagreement.
