The Hulk awakes on board a shuttle. Iron Man and the other Illuminati members (Black Bolt, Doctor Strange, and Mister Fantastic) have come to the conclusion that the Hulk is too dangerous for Earth and sent him to a planet free of life. However, the Hulk starts destroying the ship, causing the shuttle to fly through a portal. He soon crashes onto the planet Sakaar. Imperial guards show up and attach an obedience disk to the Hulk, implanting “talkbots” that allow him to understand their language. They claim the ship as salvage and him as a slave. When the Hulk tries to fight back he is knocked unconscious.
