Synopsis for "The Dream Is Dead!"
Bidding farewell to Francis Bacon, Dr. Strange transports himself and Clea to the year 1775 to board the same ship that would bring Benjamin Franklin to America. After meeting Franklin, Strange has to defend the ship from Stygyro and a summoned sea monster that threatens to destroy the ship.
The next day, the ship comes upon a giant mystically erected chasm in the middle of the ocean, and Strange leaves to investigate. While Strange battles Stygyro once more in the ruins of Atlantis at the bottom of the ocean, Clea is seduced by Benjamin Franklin. Defeating Stygyro, the water caves back in filling the chasm, however Strange is saved from the water by Clea and Franklin who take him back aboard the ship.
