Plot

Bruce Banner was a scientist turned fugitive when he was affected by doses of gamma radiation and a suicide attempt fails as he transforms into the beast within him - the Incredible Hulk.

Somewhere in a town in South America, Bruce is chased by soldiers led by Emil Blonsky who were sent by General Thaddeus Ross. As the chase ends when Banner heads inside a factory building, the soldiers fire missiles into the building which causes tons of debris to fall on Banner but his life is saved when he transforms into Hulk instantly. He escapes the factory after fighting Blonsky and his troops. Hulk then makes a quick getaway to New York City.

After arriving in the city, Hulk confronts and saves the life of Rick Jones, a teenager held captive by soldiers working for an organization called Enclave. Soon after, Hulk goes on some missions while protecting Jones from the forces of Enclave's Ceres section. After they start a few missions, Hulk manages help disarm Earthquake Bombs, trash an Enclave lab, and save Jones from a gigantic cyborg called the Kyklops.

Soon after, Banner begins to work with Samuel Sterns who was, in truth, his friend "Mr. Blue". In one mission, Hulk manages to destroy a satellite as well as Utrecht Laboratories with it, only to be confronted by the U-Foes, a superhuman group consisting of a metallic being called Ironclad, a telekinetic being named Vector, a humanoid cloud by the name of Vapor and an inside-out, radioactive being called X-Ray. Hulk manages to beat them, though the U-Foes survive and soon vow to destroy Hulk once he interferes with them once more. Hulk is then sent to retrieve Nanites stolen by Enclave which are hidden in garbage trucks that are also targeted by the army.

Major Glenn Talbot then dispatches the army to take down Hulk. Hulk then dodges missiles to get to the source of the broadcasting. Hulk manages to destroy the source and defeat Blonsky.

Enclave has created robots to steal the energy from the city. Jones tells Banner this and Hulk goes to destroy them at their key locations. After the robots are destroyed, Hulk eliminates the chemical bombs by throwing them into the saltwater. Hulk does this, but must kill some of the contaminated Enclave soldiers when the smaller bombs go off. After defeating some contaminated Enclave soldiers, Hulk heads back to those areas to get rid of the Energy Siphoning Machines. Hulk then heads to Empire State University to obtain a machine that could clear up the contamination. This is a success.

Hulk then takes the fight to Talbot by attracting press helicopters. After an attack on a military base, during which Talbot's forces fire on the press as well as Hulk, Talbot goes into hiding as Jones tracks his helicopter. Hulk gives pursuit to Talbot's helicopter. After attacking another base, Hulk learns that Talbot has captured Jones and is using him for bait. Hulk rescues Jones and goes on the run.

After escaping Talbot's soldiers, Jones tells Banner that Enclave is creating a mass Mind Control Device and that he needs the data to create a countermeasure. Hulk fights Enclave soldiers shielded from the device to obtain the data and attract Enclave soldier reinforcements so that the shield around the building can be dropped and Jones can sneak in. By attacking nearby Enclave property, reinforcements are sent upon the shield dropping. As Hulk battles the Enclave soldiers, Jones successfully infiltrates the building and sets off something upon his departure. Hulk then destroys the building to prevent it from exploding. Enclave then goes after them and Hulk fights the Enclave robots to buy Jones some time to get away. When Enclave tracks the device to the building that Jones has the data in, Hulk defends the building to buy Jones some time to get it out. When Jones does escape, Hulk makes his way to Empire State University to see Sterns. With the help of a countermeasure, Hulk heads toward one of their buildings containing an energy siphoning system. When the shield surrounding the antennae is dropped, Hulk heads up to the roof. After Hulk destroys the antennae, the leaders of Enclave plan to use Bi-Beast to battle Hulk. Upon receiving the news that Enclave placing another control antennae in Times Square, Hulk heads there and fights the Enclave soldiers under Bi-Beast's control. After the antennae is destroyed, Hulk engages Bi-Beast in battle and destroys it, before ripping off its head and revealing its mechanical insides. This causes Jupiter Leader to rise to victory after Ceres Leader and Minerva Leader's failure.

Hulk then goes to destroy the Earthquake Generators on the buildings to cease the earthquakes. Enclave then targets Hulk with an orbital laser that's synchronized over Manhattan. With help from Jones, Hulk scales the building that has the control satellite dish which Hulk destroys and follows its crash toward Central Park. Banner is then contacted that the test results show that there is no cure for his condition, but he is told that they can try if Hulk can obtain parts of the Gamma Charger from three locations: an Enclave warehouse, a building owned by Enclave and an army transport.

Sterns plans to use the Gamma Charger to elevate Hulk's Gamma Levels. Hulk does that and prevents Enclave soldiers from taking them back. Jones then locates the stolen equipment and sends Hulk to that location. Enclave plots to use the equipment to boost their mutant troops. As Jones disables them from his helicopter, Hulk clears the area for Jones to land. Banner then heads to the university where his old research data is only for Betty Ross to get the data before all of it is deleted by her father. Banner sights Blonsky stating that General Ross' army is here. When Ross' soldiers grab Betty, Banner turns into Hulk and attacks the army's deployment points. Hulk then ends up in another fight with Blonsky who has received treatment that gives him enhanced abilities. Hulk manages to defeat him and escape with Betty. With Blonsky surprisingly still alive, General Ross gives orders to give him some medical attention.

Betty then tells Banner that her father is going to attack an Enclave base and that he underestimates their power. Hulk then heads out to protect General Ross and eventually takes down Enclave's forces and one of their bases. When a soldier reports that Banner beat them to it, General Ross remarks that they did not need his help. Hulk then fights the Enclave soldiers to prevent them from getting to the Hulkbuster technology built by Stark Industries. Hulk manages to repel them. Hulk then helps the Hulkbusters fight Enclave soldiers and an Enclave F-POD. After Vulcan Leader's failure, the Enclave leaders conclude that the Army can do the job of eliminating Hulk for them. Blonsky recovers and General Ross arranges a special treatment for him.

Sterns then tells Hulk that they can test their device if Hulk can obtain a genetic simulator from Enclave. Sterns then informs Hulk that Enclave has used a bio-weapon on a building and Hulk takes the device to it in hopes that Sterns can use it to cure the place. Hulk then prevents the building's destruction while Sterns works on the cure. When it is a success on the building, Sterns concludes that the cure works.

Hulk then has to guard a truck containing an experimental weapon that General Ross is having transported since General Ross does not trust Talbot for the job as Talbot has shown that he would rather simply kill Hulk. When Talbot steals the weapon, Hulk goes after him. Hulk retrieves it and gives it to Jones so he can destroy it. When Betty has been kidnapped under Talbot's orders, Hulk fights a Hulkbuster to destroy the generators trapping Betty in an electrified box. After Hulk beats the Hulkbuster, Betty tells the pilot in the Hulkbuster that she is General Ross's daughter. This causes the Hulkbuster and the troops with it to fall back as Betty is free. When General Ross is told what happened, his army attacks Talbot who is now wearing a Hulkbuster armor (which is powered by a mini nuclear reactor that will blow up the city if it explodes). Hulk joins the fight and defeats Talbot. When the Hulkbuster armor is about to blow, Hulk throws it into the air where it explodes.

Sterns has completed the device that will cure Banner of Hulk with a chance that it could kill him. Even though it suppresses Hulk's genes, General Ross and his army arrive tranquilizing Banner and taking him and Betty away as General Ross drafts a reluctant Sterns to his cause. After General Ross leaves, Blonsky arrives to get more of the treatment from Sterns. This causes Blonsky to become the Abomination who then attacks the city. Seeing as he's the only one who can stop him, Banner jumps from the helicopter and transforms into Hulk to fight Abomination. When Abomination attacks the helicopter that General Ross and Betty are in, Hulk destroys it and continues his fight with Abomination. Hulk defeats Abomination and leaves the area. Betty tells her father that she hopes it was worth it.

Hulk later attacks the remaining Enclave bases and defeats the leaders, ending the threat of Enclave once and for all.
