Synopsis for "The Priest"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Cloak and Dagger #1

Father Francis Delgado walks past a throng of drug dealers in Hell’s Kitchen on his way to the Holy Ghost Church. When he enters the rectory he finds two superhuman individuals standing before him – Cloak and Dagger. Cloak and Dagger come seeking sanctuary, and they tell the priest that they gained their powers after being injected with an experimental narcotic. Now they use their abilities to prey on the pushers that plague the city.

Meanwhile at the 21st precinct, vice officer O'Rielly and several other officers find the bodies of various drug dealers in a fugue state. At first they appear as if they have overdosed on their own product, but it soon becomes apparent that they have had a run-in with Cloak and Dagger.

Back at the Church, Delgado gives Cloak and Dagger food and asks them a series of questions. He tells them that he has called the police to check out their story. Cloak asks him if he revealed their location to them, but Delgado says that he has not. Cloak and Dagger came looking for sanctuary, and he will not violate that. He tells them that he has heard tales of pushers being found in extremely bad shape.

Meanwhile, a young man named Jerry and his girlfriend Alice arrive in town. A few lowlifes accost them and pull them into a secluded alley when suddenly Cloak and Dagger appear. Moments later, O'Rielly and her team of officers arrive as well and a firefight breaks out. Dagger's body glows and she discharges several bolts of solid light that incapacitate the attackers. In the midst of gunfire, Jerry is struck by a stray bullet and dies. O'Rielly blames Cloak and Dagger for the boy’s death. Cloak and Dagger teleport away from the scene and back to the church.

Synopsis for "Among These Dark, Satanic Mills"

In Otherworld, Merlyn continues his ethereal chessmatch despite both his injured hand and the protests of his daughter, Roma. They both look to the board, and Roma points out that the odds are against her father. Telling Roma to play on, Merlyn slaps a piece out of her hand in anger.

Back on Earth, Beetles close in on the allies of Captain Britain. Tom Lennox volunteers to stay behind and defend the women as they help in ailing Alison out the backdoor. More beetles lie in wait, however, and the distraction leads to Tom's tragic death as he calls out for Betsy, his lover. She telepathically links to him in the last moments and is forced to feel the psychic reverberations of his passing.

As Betsy cries out helplessly, Satrunyne begs Linda to get in touch with her superhero roots and aid the women against the Beetles. Unfortunately, Linda simply breaks down and runs into the city, followed by a distraught Saturnyne. In Otherworld, three more pieces are stricken from the board.

Meanwhile, Captain Britain continues his journey towards 10 Downing Street. The closer he gets to his destination, the more he sees the world before him distort under the control of the man he seeks: Mad Jim Jaspers. As he enters the Prime Minister's residence, Merlyn encourages Brian from Otherworld, telling him all the ways he prepared him for the insanity of this very encounter. He was created for this!

Having finally caught up to her, Saturnyn stands above a cowering Linda, demanding to know what keeps her from the fight. She tells the former heroine how they're Brian's only hope to stop this madness, and even goes as far as to call out Linda's cowardice in the face of her world, her lover and now Tom's death. After raining blows upon the cowering Captian UK, Saturnyne unleashes the rage in Linda, who strikes back at her assailaint and leaving her with a black eye. Smiling due to change in her companion's eagerness to fight, Saturnyne hopes that they aren't too late before leading the charge to 10 Downing Street.

At that very locale, Brian enters the office of Jaspers, himself. "Can I help you, Sir?", Japsers calls out, "you seem to be lost...lost in the funhouse." And suddenly, Captain Britain is left standing beneath the giant, naked form of Mad Jim.
