    Oh, if you definately want some laughs, then THIS issue is a must buy. Heck, even if you don't, this issue is a MUST HAVE for your Wolverine collection. Logan uses Hulk so many times in this book that it's hard to not laugh once in awhile. Claremont outdid himself with this book....a must-read!

    "If it Ain't Broke---!"


    Logan pulls off many hilarious pranks on the Hulk. Right from the beginning, Logan had replaced all of the Hulk's baggage with purple pants, making the Hulk not exactly happy.

    Meanwhile, later that night, in a club called Casablanca that was owned by O'Donnell. Hulk bursts in, demanding to know where he could locate a guy named Patch (Logan's secret identity at that time). Outside, Hulk explains to Logan about this guy he was looking for (Coy). At that moment, a truck runs over a puddle, ruining hulk's suit. Hulk was mad, and promptly leaps into the tank of the truck. Unknowing to him, though, the tank contained industrial sludge, leaving Hulk dirty and smelly.

    After cleaning up, Hulk (now wearing purple pants since that was all he had left) and Logan goest to "Mr. Max's Spa" to give Hulk some experience as to what type of city Madripoor was. Inside, Logan continues to use Hulk, as he uses Hulk to beat up the people in there. Upstairs, Logan discovers a bunch of ladies that were being held as slaves. Using Hulk again, he allows himself to be beaten up, and right when Hulk enters, he discovers the ladies in the cells, and promptly beats up the two guards there. Hulk frees the women, and Logan didn't mind since he didn't do anything.

    Next day, Hulk wakes up thinking he had a dream about last night with beautiful women, lushous wines, and all...and then he realizes it was really not a dream, and that Bruce Banner had gotten all the fun with the women (which didn't make him exactly too happy about it).

    Later on that night, Logan again manipulates the Hulk. Taking him up to an abandoned shrine, leading the Hulk to believe that who he was looking for was up there, Logan causes the balcony there to collapse with his claws. Hulk falls right into a drug factory below. The people there were looking for the Hulk, too. Upon their discovery, they attack the Hulk once he landed in there. Hulk beats them up, while Logan watches. Hulk was not exactly pleased with Logan, but Logan tells him that he was being conned from the start. Of course, the drug factory was owned by Coy, so HE wasn't happy about it. Hearing it was a drug factory, Hulk realizes that he was being had by the guy who had hired him in the first place, and he was dealing himself out of it. Before he goes, he pops Logan a good one for conning him all the way.

    In the end, Hulk leaves, expecting Logan to have helped him book a west-bound flight (which was a night-flight all the way, and thus, he'd stay the Grey Hulk). Of course, Logan had to throw in one final prank, as Hulk later discovers, the flight was an eastward morning flight to Los Angeles.
