Synopsis for "Fooling Around With Mother Nature"
After the battle the "Big Four" Defenders return to Doctor Strange's Mansion to determine how to undo the curse that keeps them together. Nighthawk mentions the goddess Gaea as a possible solution. Strange disdainfully thanks Kyle, and then whisks the Surfer, Hulk, and Namor to Gaea's realm to confront her. Nighthawk also follows with his teleportation ring. Gaea is not amused by the abrasive manner of the Defenders and quickly dispels them. The Four Defenders next meet at the Himalayas where they vow not to disband until they have removed the curse that keeps them together. Kyle Richmond watches in trepidation. The Four, especially Stephen Strange, appear to have changed so much and become increasingly hostile and sinister.
