- Synopsis: In an unnamed military complex a General and his troops are confronted by the Planetaryfield team. They quickly dispatch his troops and ask for information on a scientist named David Paine. The General informs Planetary that in 1962 during the cold war David Paine created a supercomputer that was also a bomb that could rewrite or erase matter. This Supercomputer met with much praise from many including the General`s wife who came to see Paine unaware that the bomb was going through a test run in the desert. Paine rushed into the desert to save the General`s wife but was caught up in the explosion. Paine`s exposure to the device`s reality altering affects transformed him into a horrific creature that the army battled for twenty four days before he was finally captured. The General ultimately reveals that nobody has been able to understand Paine`s notes and that their ultimate solution to the problem was to bury Paine in a five mile deep pit without food or water. Paine finally died in 1983 The General then says that his wife had a little girl six months later and that he has never seen her. (Note: The story is a clever reworking of the classic origin story of Marvel`s Incredible Hulk.)
