(Hulk 2099#9 (fb) - BTS) - At some point before or after allying with Draco, the Golden One acquired the means to transform a human into a Hulk-like being.
An unidentified test subject was chosen to be thusly mutated, and regulators were designed so they could control their mutation.
(Hulk 2099#9) - After Draco arrived at his base, the Golden One informed him that the brain-encoding was complete and that his subject would have no thought but to destroy its target.
With the regulators in place, the Golden One shouted "It's gamma time!!"
The subject was swiftly transformed into what the Golden One considered to be the only creature guaranteed to destroy the Hulk: The Anti-Hulk.
(Hulk 2099#10 (fb) - BTS) - Draco's sources confirmed the Hulk to be a transformed John Eisenhart.
(Hulk 2099#10 (fb) - BTS) - The Golden One programmed the Anti-Hulk to seek out and destroy John Eisenhart and/or the Hulk.
|(Hulk 2099#10) - Observing John remotely, Draco had the Golden One release the Anti-Hulk to pursue its targets.|
(Hulk 2099#10 - BTS) - After the Hulk reached the Locusts' base, Adonai threatened to detonate a bomb that would set off a massive earthquake.
When the Hulk's advised that they would suffer, too, Adonai argued that they're lives were through with Doom taking over.
(Hulk 2099#10) - As the Hulk tried to assure Adonai that he would take down Doom, he was assaulted by the Anti-Hulk who caught him offguard and punched him through a wall.
After a few punches back and forth, the Hulk -- appreciating that his foe matched his strength, speed, and moves -- the Hulk tried to convince the Anti-Hulk to take the fight away from the bomb.
Unable to get reason with the virtually mindless creature, the Hulk resolved to depart and lead the Anti-Hulk away, even if this delivered him to Doom; however, Draco guided the Anti-Hulk to attack the Hulk further.
Appreciating the bomb's imminent explosion, the Hulk grabbed it and dove on top it; after a brief delay, the bomb triggered a massive earthquake, splitting off California from the rest of the continental USA.
The Hulk was apparently overwhelmed by the massive collapse, and debris landed on the bomb, triggering the gamma explosion.
As energy leaked from the devastated land, a monstrous green creature emerged from the land (see comments).
(2099 A.D. Apocalypse#1) - In Gammadion, as the
realm in California affected by the gamma bomb explosion had become
known, SHIELD troops serving John Herod (who had ousted Doom as US
president) hunted down a number of superhuman or advanced technology
Comments: Created by - Gerard Jones, Joe Bennet, and Chris Ivy.
As noted in the Hulk 2099 entry in All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Update #2: It remains unconfirmed that who emerged from the Hollywood rubble following the gamma explosion: the Hulk, the Anti-Hulk, Adonai (who bore an unexplained resemblance to both creatures) or indeed another victim transformed by the explosion. Likewise, it is possible the creature killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. was the Anti-Hulk.Yeah, what kind of Hulk gets killed by injuries seen here?
