Synopsis for "Madness Is All in the Mind!"Edit

Continued from last issue... With Spider-Man a prisoner of the Wraith, Jean DeWolff and Iron Man attack in hopes of freeing Spidey. The fight doesn't go well because of the Wraith's abilities to manipulate the minds of others, and Iron Man, Spider-Man and DeWolff are almost bested by the Wraith. However, Spider-Man and Iron Man manage to fight off the effects and the Wraith is forced to flee.

After the battle, Phillip DeWolff enters Jean's office and shows her a handwritten letter from the Wraith which appears to be written by her brother Brian. Jean is shocked, and tells Iron Man and Spider-Man that her brother was gunned down in the line of duty. Believing that they have a supernatural threat on their hands, Spider-Man suggests they seek out the aid of Dr. Strange.

This story is continued next issue....
