Issue(s): Hulk #176, Hulk #177, Hulk #178
The Hulk basically has intruded on Warlock's Easter Story.
Warlock plays out his Jesus role, having a last supper...
...getting nailed to a cross-like object by the Man-Beast...
...saying "High Evolutionary, why have you abandoned me?"...
...and rising from the dead.
In the end, the Hulk's smashyness prevails, and Warlock ascends into the heavens, leaving Counter-Earth.
Warlock was revived by the Rigellian Recorder, who takes a rare break from his Watcher-like observation-only directive.
The art is generally OK, but the animal-men are just terribly goofy looking.

FOOM#5 stated outright that this story was done to end Warlock's dangling story and clear the deck for Starlin's upcoming series, which shows how much clout he had at Marvel early on.
