The Hulk picks the monster up and smashes him through a grove of trees. Wolverine finishes the job by sinking his claws into the Wendigo's throat. The Wendigo is an immortal creature, however, and even this seemingly fatal blow is not enough to kill him.
For the time being, though, the Wendigo is unconscious. Now Wolverine turns his attention onto the Hulk. The fight is furious, but brief, until two bystanders, Marie Cartier and Georges Baptiste, use chemicals to knock them both out. Marie Cartier prepares once again to conduct an occult ritual that will remove the spirit of the Wendigo from her brother's body, and transpose it onto the Hulk. With the Hulk unconscious, he slowly changes back into Robert Banner.
Georges refuses to take part in Marie's plan any longer. Arguing that it was bad enough when she intended on placing the curse on a mindless monster, but now she plans to subject an innocent human being to the curse of the Wendigo. Marie tries to drag Banner's body back into the cave with the unconscious Wendigo, but Banner awakens and just as quickly turns back into the Hulk.
Wolverine revives as well and the two begin fighting once again. Marie flees from the battle and races back into the cave. The Hulk swings a mighty punch, but Wolverine manages to roll just in time so that it is only a glancing blow.
The punch is still strong enough to knock him out however. Inside the cave, Marie discovers that Georges has completed her occult ritual. He has transferred the power of the Wendigo out of Paul Cartier's body and placed it inside his own. As the new Wendigo, the last vestiges of Georges' intellect quickly fade away, but not before he manages to profess his love for Marie Cartier.
The Wendigo turns and smashes through a section of cavern wall and runs off into the forest. Paul Cartier is now forever free of the curse of the Wendigo. And now he fights Hulk's enemy? But if Hulk's enemy is little man's enemy... Then little man is Hulk's friend!
