Banner as well, questions Stark’s motives, says that he has trust issues. Stark though, gave his word that SHIELD or any other organization would not come near the Hulk and orders Fury and his agents to stand down.

Stark and Banner gets out of the house in a calm manner but a SHIELD agent, without Nick Fury’s orders, shoots Banner. Stark stands tall but hastily heads over his armor as Banner quickly transforms into the Hulk and starts its rampage. Iron Man tries to escape but gets caught and tossed into one of SHIELD’s Humvees. 

The strike team starts shooting but Nick Fury orders for a smoke grenade and all agents to clear out. As the smoke distracts Hulk, Mjolnir comes flying in and hits him in the face. Rogers comes in and charges his shield. The Hulk gets angrier and knocks Rogers out. The same happens to Thor. Iron Man swoops in and charges the Hulk with its Unibeam. Rogers argues with Thor and Iron Man about their plan but the two other heroes worked their own plans. As Iron Man keeps blasting Hulk, Thor charges Mjolnir and fires its lightning blast. The blast though, accidentally hits Iron Man.

Iron Man’s power then reaches to 400% and in retaliation, blasts Thor. The Hulk then charges to Iron Man but the latter, again, fires its Unibeam. This time the blast, as Stark ordered JARVIS to put all the 400% power to the Unibeam, knocks out the Hulk. Iron Man though, loses power and shuts down.

Thor then gets back up and tries to pummel Iron Man but Rogers confronts Thor to put the hammer down. Angry of the situation, Thor jumps and tries to pummel Rogers, but when Mjolnir and the Vibranium shield hit one another, a huge blast occurred, ending the battle.

As the heroes stand, Iron Man notices that the Hulk has reformed back to Banner, unconscious.
