Synopsis for "End of a Nightmare!!"Edit
Morgan le Fay and her two demon-barbarians attack the helpless Magnus as he remains bound to a chair. Spider-Woman drives the demons away with several venom blasts, but is powerless to fight Morgan, as she currently exists on the astral plane. Morgan wants the Darkhold, but Spider-Woman has no idea where it is. However, in order to save Magnus' life, she agrees to search for it.
While Spider-Woman embarks upon her journey, Magnus surrepticiously sends a psychic command to S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jerry Hunt. Hunt suddenly feels the urge to leave his office and resume his search for Spider-Woman.
Spider-Woman meanwhile, learns that a young man named Jack Russell (also known as the Werewolf by Night) once possessed the Darkhold. She goes to his apartment at Colden House, just as the full moon begins to rise. Jack tries to warn her away, but it is too late. He transforms into the Werewolf and attacks Spider-Woman. He chokes her until she falls unconscious, then lumbers off into the night. Jessica quickly revives and follows the Werewolf onto the city streets. She manages to lay him low with a concentrated venom blast and brings him back to Morgan le Fay's keep.
As she arrives with the unconscious Werewolf, Jerry Hunt shows up as well. Magnus attempts to combat Morgan on the astral plane, but she defeats him by destroying his physical body. She then turns her power against Jerry.
Morgan then realizes that she will increase her own capabilities by assuming a corporeal form. She opens up a time window to 12th century Camelot where her physical body lies sleeping. She begins a process to transplant her 20th century astral self into her chronologically older body, but Spider-Woman sends a venom blast through the portal, destroying her sleeping form. The paradox creates a time vortex that violently pulls Morgan le Fay away from this dimension. With Morgan's presence eliminated, her castle disappears.
Suddenly, Magnus walks up to Jessica and Jerry. He reveals that he faked his own demise in order to keep Morgan distracted. However, doing so greatly diminished his magic powers. As Magnus continues to mutter to himself, Jessica and Jerry embrace one another.
