BARE BONES (COURTESY OF WIKI):

Finally free of Gamma Base, Bruce Banner travels up to Canada to investigate the scene where the Red Hulk encountered the pack of Wendigo. Following the Red Hulk’s trail, Bruce Banner finds himself in Las Vegas. Just outside of the Circe’s Mystic Isle casino he comes across a mob of panicked and gore splattered people fleeing for their lives. Running into the casino, Banner witnesses the Wendigo attacking people. Banner loses control when he watches as a woman is dragged away to her death. Instead of transforming into the green Hulk, Banner transforms into his grey alter-ego, Joe Fixit.

Happy to be back in Las Vegas, Fixit knocks one of the Wendigo clear out of the casino. As he fights the creature off he is suddenly struck in the back with a number of crescent-shaped objects. Turning around, he witnesses the arrival of Moon Knight. The masked hero tells the Hulk to leave, but Fixit refuses. Moon Knight manages to temporarily blind the Joe, but he manages to knock the hero out. Before the Hulk can pummel Moon Knight anymore he is ordered to stand down by Ms. Marvel and the Sentry.

Fixit tosses Moon Knight into the sky, prompting the Sentry to go and catch him. Ms. Marvel then swoops in for the attack, knocking the gray Hulk into a massive neon sign and turning him from the grey Mr. Fixit into the green savage.

Meanwhile, the Sentry catches up to Moon Knight, but he doesn’t want to be rescued. By the time the masked hero gets to the ground, the Hulk has grabbed hold of Ms. Marvel. Moon Knight then shoves sonic disruptors into the Hulk’s ears. The high pitch sound causes the Hulk a great deal of pain and the brute then tries to leap away. The Sentry then slams the Hulk onto the top of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino.

It’s then that Moon Knight calls out to them and points out that the Wendigo are still running amok on the street.

From atop the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, the Hulk tells the two Avengers that he has a plan. This is simply smashing the Wendigo.Soon the Hulk is swarmed by the Wendigo. Moon Knight tries his best to force the creatures away, but his Crescent Darts have little effect on the Wendigo. 

As Ms. Marvel and the Sentry join Moon Knight they are horrified to see that the Hulk has been transformed into a Wendigo as well. The two powerhouses slam into the Wendihulk and try to fight him to a standstill, but he is too powerful for them to handle. Suddenly, they are joined by Brother Voodoo who detected the presence of the Wendigo in the area. He has the three heroes keep the Wendihulk occupied while he casts a voodoo spell that causes a quick flash blizard. Everyone who was turned into a Wendigo is returned to human form, including Bruce Banner. Finding themselves back in human form, the former Wendigo find themselves nude and violently ill. While the three heroes are busy tending to the people, Bruce Banner manages to slip away.
