The Avengers calm him down, convince him that it was all the Council's idea instead of theirs, and then have Hulk regain his hero card for a second half battle against the *real* villain, such as Ultron or the Skrullies or something.
Still, no matter how you slice it, Hulk comes out of such a scenario with a big black eye in terms of popularity. The reason everybody loved Hulk in the Avengers movie is because HE'S FINALLY TREATED LIKE A HERO, instead of a hated monster. But if you believe Mayimbe, he goes right back to hated monster status in the very next film we see him in (Avengers 2).
People liked the Hulk in TA because they got to see him doing what he did best without all of the "boring" parts of the other movies he was in, which was tear **** up. If they see him doing that in TA2(and eventually a movie where he comes back for revenge), then it's a wrap.
