Synopsis for "The Power to Purge!"

After a near fall when his web-fluid runs out, Spider-Man recalls the last time a situation like this happened. This was the time when Spider-Man and the Human Torch worked together to defeat Morbius the Living Vampire.

Finishing his recollection, Spider-Man remembers that after that adventure, he turned Morbius over to Professor X of the X-Men, and how Morbius later vanished when fighting the Thing. He then dismisses Morbius as a foe that will no longer be a worry of Spider-Man, totally unaware that in another realm some force is forcing Morbius to use the Living Eraser's dimensional transportation devices to return to Earth.
