Title:
Marvel Team-Up
Synopsis:
Spider-Man, Jean DeWolff, and Iron Man recruit Dr. Strange to help them solve the mystery of the identity of the Wraith, believing there to be a supernatural element when evidence suggests that the Wraith is possibly Jean’s deceased brother Brian.

As Spider-Man and Dr. Strange go back to the scene of Brian’s death, Iron Man reviews the forensic evidence and Jean DeWolff goes to investigate her brother’s tomb. As Spider-Man and Dr. Strange learn that Brian wasn’t killed on the scene, Iron Man finds that the fingerprints on the Wraith’s notes match that of Phillip DeWolff, and Jean is shocked to find her father and the Wraith hiding out in a secret laboratory where she is captured.

When Dr. Strange and Spider-Man arrive they too are incapacitated and taken over. Phillip then explains how he pulled his son off the scene of the crime and invested money on inventions that might restore him to life, and save him from the bullet wound to his head. The last experiment instead linked their minds, so that Brian, in his trance-like state, was able to be controlled by Phillip. Phillip created the Wraith identity to take revenge on criminals using lethal force.

When the heroes break free, Iron Man also arrives with a specially prepared helmet. Iron Man puts the helmet on Phillip, incapacitating both he and the Wraith. Although they defeated their foes, Brian’s health is still affected by the bullet.
