Quote1 Maybe that's the problem. I've been trying too hard to follow the rules. I became The Wraith because following the rules wasn't enough. I quit after Carlie discovered my secret but promised not to turn me in. I only took the mask again to help her expose Doc Ock's connection to Spider-Man's strange behavior a few months ago. Since then I've struggled to find my way back to being a "good cop." But being a "good cop" got my friend killed and set Tombstone free. Time for plan B. Quote2
-- Wraith (Yuri Watanabe) src 

A NYPD captain, supporter of Spider-Man who investigated a Gang War between the Maggia and Mister Negative, the appearance of the new Hobgoblin and other criminals.


As the Wraith

Some time later, using Mysterio's equipment and that of other villains, Yuri became the new Wraith, disguised as the ghost of Jean DeWolff (using a mask of the Chameleon), fighting criminals and intimidating them.

When her activities became notorious, her subaltern Carlie Cooper started to investigate and managed to discover Wraith's real identity. After helping Spider-Man and Anti-Venom to defeat Mister Negative and reveal him as the philanthropist Martin Li, Cooper convinced her to give up her career as the vigilante temporarily and also to work on covering her tracks better. Yuri then took a leave of absence from her police duties and left New York for awhile.

Later, Yuri began working with Carlie to uncover the true identity of the Superior Spider-Man. Wraith accompanied Carlie into going to Grand Tauró where they chased Antoine Morant, a banker of notorious criminals, searching for information about the secret bank account of Superior Spider-Man. Carlie and the Wraith caught up with Morant, who was shredding some documents out of fear. Carlie caught the document, discovering that is actually all of the equipment and technology for the Arachnaughts and the order for his Spiderlings, all coming from the secret account of Otto Gunther Octavius, putting Carlie one step closer to the evidence she needs to unveil the secret of Superior Spider-Man.[2]
