The X-Men battle the Abomination. Marvel Girl tries to read his mind and finds out that he had been fighting the Hulk when the military attacked. The Abomination fled when the missiles were launched. Once the Hulk transformed back into Dr Banner, the Abomination was the only one who was still giving off gamma radiation.

But the X-Men cannot leave without accomplishing their mission: retrieving the Hulk. The Hulk and the Abomination are still fighting when the military arrive. The Hulk defeats the Abomination and the military take the Abomination into custody.
With a gentle telepathic nudge from Marvel Girl, the Hulk transforms back into Dr Banner.
Xavier, Beast and Polaris have finished prepping the laboratory when the X-Men return with Dr Banner. Gratefully for saving his life, Xavier insists that Dr Banner allow him to repay the favour.
