Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the Green Scar, the planet’s mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, the horrific Brood, wise rock-man Korg, shadow warrior Hiroim, noble-born rebel Elloe and her loyal guardsman Skee. Together, these gladiators start a revolution that could change their entire world—or destroy it. It’s savage sci-fi fantasy by award-winning writer Greg Pak, guest-starring the Silver Surfer!

This is a nightmare that only Hulk can end; for he knows that he himself is responsible for the presence of the evil Maestro.
