Synopsis for "The Man Who Created the Black Widow"Edit

Angel and Ghost Rider fail to prevent Darkstar and Griffin from liberating Stuart Clarke from his hospital room. Meanwhile, the Champions' office is attacked by a small, remote-controlled missile. When Ivan and Black Widow analyze it, they recognize the calling card of Natasha's old trainer, Alexi Bruskin. Widow spots Bruskin on a nearby rooftop and dives out the window to go confront him, but the two former comrades are quickly interrupted by the arrival of Titanium Man.
