Stephen Crane famously wrote:

A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
“A sense of obligation.”

And there in is the premise of this issue. Immediately following the events of The Chaos War (which you need not have read to enjoy this tale), The Hulk says to the Gods of Mount Olympus, “I have bled for you, I have sacrificed and I hurt. Please heal my family!”, to which the almighty Zeus turns a deaf ear. However, the near elemental force of rage that is The Incredible Hulk is not one to be ignored. So, seeking recompense for his sacrifices, the Hulk scales Mount Olympus to demand an audience with Zeus. The Olympians, having regained their stature as Gods on Earth, no longer have any need for mortal heroes and seek to repel him.

In this story, the humanity of the Hulk is brilliantly juxtaposed against his status as an all but undeniable force of nature. His rage is not just that of a mindless beast, as the Hulk is often depicted, but it is shown as the sorrow of man who has shouldered the burdens of the world many times over turned outward…for the rest of the world to see.
