Issue(s): Hulk #155
The Shaper allows him to live in a world of his dreams, in which the Reich is winning the War.
The Shaper even gives Kronsteig super powers (he calls himself Captain Axis).
The Hulk messes everything up, though, angering the Shaper. However, the Shaper is unable to defeat the Hulk or provide the Hulk with the world of his dreams, so he sends him on to Jarella's world.

I always liked thew little twist near the end of the story, where Kronsteig loses because he literally can't imagine having as much strength as the Hulk, which means that the Shaper can't give him that strength.

My personal intro to the Shaper of Worlds was the giant sized Batman/Hulk crossover, where the Shaper empowers the Joker.
As odd as this story is, Im glad that it took the Shaper to actual send the Hulk to Jarella's world. It would have been a bridge to far to have the Hulk shrink there automatically.

Kronsteig/Captain Axis looks like a cross between Hank Pym's (and the Defenders') old nemesis Egghead and Captain Nazi, the venerable SHAZAM!/Captain Marvel villain. The top panel here looks like Trimpe was borrowing from the facial chapter of the Jack Kirby playbook.
