Issue(s): Hulk #187, Hulk #188
As the Hulk rampages around the Russian base (the Gremlin actually captures the Hulk for a while and tries to brainwash him, but the Hulk is so dumb he is resistant to mind control), the SHIELD team rescue Glenn - or at least Glenn's body. It turns out that his mind has been switched with a Soviet operative named Gregory Kronski.
Clay Quartermain leads the SHIELD team, and they are maintaining his permanent grin expression from his earlier appearances.
The team eventually gets out with Talbot's mindless body, but Hulk is stuck behind fighting a rhyming triceratops/dog creature...
...and is seemingly killed when SHIELD blows up the base.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Hulk #184-193 take place between Giant-Size Defenders #3-4. Banner has been at Hulkbuster Base since the end of the last arc. Fourteen hours as said to have passed.

"Droog" is the name given to the violent young punks in the novel/film "A Clockwork Orange".
It derives from the Russian word for friend, "drug" (pronounced droog).
It's a little like Gremlin naming his pet triceratops "Buddy."
