Synopsis for "A Garden of Earthly Demise!"Edit

Nighthawk's brain transplant is a success, and in thanks for her assistance, Dr. Strange uses his magic powers to insure that Tania Belinskaya (AKA Red Guardian) can remain in America for a period of time.

Meanwhile, Jack Norriss and the Hulk manage to save Aragorn from a man's double barreled shotgun, and Val settles in jail using her might to try and get her out of a jam but cannot bring herself to strike another woman. While, Samuel Smithers after visiting a home for the Ludberdite Bozo's, decides that he should continue to pursue a life of crime and resumes his guise of Plantman to attack the city.

When Plantman captures Kyle Richmond to use as ransom, Dr. Strange and Red Guardian swing into action to stop Plantman and save Kyle. However, during the fight they are captured in a giant flower by Plantman who then demands 5 million dollars or he will kill Richmond.
