Ben’s memory has been reset to his life just before the flight that transformed them all into Super Heroes. And now that they’re down a member, the Mole Man decides the time is right to strike!!

When Iron Man arrives, he’s able to free Rick, but at a great cost. The Controller now has Iron Man under his command, and it’s up to Pepper and Rhodey to free him… with a little help from their Incredible new friend.

8:30 p.m. ET – #107 – “Wolverine vs. the Hulk”
Wolverine is blackmailed by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Nick Fury to help track down the Hulk; who is out of control and tearing up towns in northern Canada. He agrees only to keep the identities of his fellow X-Men from getting into the hands of the wrong people. Loathingly he trudges out to the snowy wilderness looking for his old sparring partner. The Hulk finds Wolverine in no time and they battle it out until Wolverine manages to subdue Hulk, who when calmed turns back into Bruce Banner. Wolverine learns from Banner that he himself was dropped into the wilderness by S.H.I.E.L.D. to stop the rampage of a hiker who somehow magically fell under a mystical curse that turned him into a monster. Together they set out to stop the monster with Banner’s serum only to find out that there are four vicious beasts after them not one. Their attacks are relentless. But once exposed to the serum, the monsters shockingly turn back into human form! They are actually S.H.I.E.L.D. agents! Wolverine is furious; Fury lied to he and Banner and brought him in to clean up his mess. As a last nod, Wolverine punches Banner turning him back into the Hulk and letting him wreak havoc on Fury and his crew as he heads back home. [Description via Marvel Animation Age]
