Synopsis for "All You Need Is Hate"

Running late with a session with her doctor, Jessica Drew is forced to travel as Spider-Woman in order to make it on time. Changing back to her civilian guise, she is examined by two specialists, who determine that people's aversion towards her is not psychological, but physical. As it turns out, she gives off a pheromone that affects others around her. Meanwhile, Jessica's boyfriend Jerry Hunt and his fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agents interrogate the members of the Cult of Kali and learn that their leader is not among the cult members they captured.

That night, Jessica goes to visit Adrienne Hatros at her home and learns that she is really the supervillain Nekra. Nekra explains that after she was defeated by Daredevil, Black Widow, and Shanna the She-Devil she was kept in a drugged stupor in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.[Continuity 1] It wasn't until she happened upon the Hate Monger's broadcast across America, that had sufficient emotional power to counteract the drugs, and allowed for her to escape.[Continuity 2] Nekra then wandered the underground tunnels of LA until she came across the Cult of Kali. She tricked them into believing that she was their god reincarnated, and used their financing to back the Hatros Institute.

She finishes by telling that she had hired Jessica Drew because of her unique biology and hoped to use it to her advantage to get revenge against the Mandrill by developing an immunity to pheromone-based powers. This leads to a battle between the two women, which Spider-Woman ultimately wins, beating Nekra into submission.[Continuity 3] After the fight, Spider-Woman calls the police and changes back into Jessica Drew. That night at her apartment, Jessica is visited by Jerry Hunt, who tells her that he's been reassigned to go back to London, and asks her to join him. Having established herself in Los Angeles, Jessica decides that she doesn't want to uproot her life again, and the two part company.
