Banner has come back to the American Southwest after his failure in Switzerland. He comes to the cave where he was working on a cure when he first became the Hulk. Working day and night he builds a machine to cure him. But the cure doesn’t work and actually turns him into the Hulk. The Hulk goes off and attacks a group of soldiers conducting a test in the desert. The soldiers manage to use gas to knock out the Hulk and take him to a secret government research base. He changes back into Banner and finds out the base is conducting experiments in robots called Cybertrons. The Hulk manages to tear up the place.

He slips away and dons the Moon Knight costume. He finds one of the thugs running in terror from a monster. After subduing him the eclipse becomes total and he is knocked out by a large figure in the dark.

“An Eclipse, Waxing”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artists: Bill Sienkiewicz & Bob McLeod

Bruce Banner is in the countryside at night. He comes upon three thugs planning to break into a house. The thugs see him and chase after him. The chase brings out the Hulk who knocks out two of the thugs. He goes chasing after the third and knocks out a figure during the lunar eclipse.

This Hulk story was ok but for some reason didn’t appeal to me. It seems like a hackneyed old evil government doing military experiments. The real interesting stories were the two backup stories. They both fit together and were very atmospheric in the artwork. The lunar eclipse was a good idea to bring Moon Knight and Hulk together without them ever knowing that they had actually ever met.
