“Get ready for the ride of your life.” – Clinton Barton
As Logan returns to his farm, he is flashing back to the moment where he was sitting on train tracks ready to die as his son Scotty comes to let him know their tractor needs a new engine. Since the family is broke, Logan discusses their options with his wife Maureen while his daughter Jade begins to ask about rumors of Logan being a superhero in the past but he brushes them off. After the kids have gone to bed, Logan and Maureen discuss their options further since they are unable to make rent and know their landlords, Doom and Kingpin, will punish people by sending Bruce Banner’s grandchildren in their place to send a message. Two days later the Hulk Gang arrives in an old Fantasticar and Bobbie-Jo Banner teases Logan while her brothers, Otis and Charlie, are ready to punish the family for not having rent and Logan debates popping his claws for the first time in 50 years.
Instead, Logan takes a severe beating from the two and the punishment ends when Scotty draws a shotgun on the Hulk Gang prompting them to leave with a message to come up with double the rent next month or they will kill the entire family. As Logan recovers from his beating, a blind Clint Barton arrives with an offer to make the rent money by having Logan assist him in getting a package to the East Coast within two weeks. Logan reluctantly agrees so the two set out the following morning and as they begin their journey in the Spider-Mobile, Logan reviews the journey ahead of them. They must begin in Hulk Land, and then have to cross the Kingdom of Kingpin and Doom’s Lair along with two unnamed regions before reaching the President’s Quarter and New Babylon.
