Heel Hydra!

Modok and AIM have invented the Cosmic Cube, which as everyone knows, can alter reality.  Baron Von Strucker wants it for Hydra so they will have won WWII (sort of, anyway).  the Avengers are out to stop them, and SHIELD is out to stop everyone, including the Avengers.

it's a good episode, and despite the nonsense with SHIELD (really) I like it a lot.  and I REALLY like this Hulk.  he's not childlike at all, can use real sentences and doesn't refer to himself in the third person at all.  I've never been a huge Hulk fan, but I can barely tolerate the "Hulk Smash" version nowadays. 

but the madder Hulk gets the stupider Hulk gets, which helps sell him to a stupidity starved public (thanks Fred Hembeck). spoilers!

anyway, Cap and Strucker touch the cube at the same time and nothing happens.  all the baddies are arrested and SHIELD promises Tony work for them or else.

oh, the Widow returns and sort of makes up for her being a traitor.  there's a Nick Fury subplot going on as well.

and then Cap says he'd change nothing and the last shot we see is this...

(points for anyone that knows where I got the title from!)
