Synopsis for "From Stonehenge with Death!"
Taking a trip to Stonehenge, Alicia and the Thing are secretly followed by Spider-Woman. Meanwhile, the chest uncovered by thieves looking for lost World War II treasure unleash a mystical force. Arriving at Stonehenge, Thing and Alicia are confronted by four elemental demons: Fire, Aero, Hydro, and Mud. Their appearance forces Spider-Woman to reveal herself and defend Ben and Alicia.
The trio is all transported below Stonehenge where they find that all the tourists have been transported to and are being kept as prisoners. The elementals explain that they were summoned to capture Mordred the mystic for Merlin, who has recently been revived in modern times. They have vowed to capture Mordred even if it means the destruction of the Earth. As the elementals are explaining their mission, Ben and Spider-Woman attack them but prove unable to make any lasting damage against them.
When all seems lost, Mordred arrives to answer the elementals challenge. While Mordred and Spider-Woman battle the elementals, Ben goes looking for Alicia. Mordred transports himself, the elementals, and Spider-Woman back to the surface where Mordred uses his magic to convince the elementals to fight each other.
