Cloak and Dagger travel through India on their way back to America. They hide aboard a ferry crossing the Ganges River when the crowded boat capsizes. The heroes watch helplessly as people drown, but they also witness the light of the dieing form floating discs. Dagger stares at the radiance with awe and discovers that she can see the glowing essences from within Cloak’s dark dimension. They follow the discs to a temple where they fill meditating worshipers with an overwhelming sense of ecstasy. Dagger shares their joy by dancing and releasing her power with abandonment, but Cloak worries that using the essence of the dying may be obscene. Before Ty can react, a touch of intense light returns him to his human form. It is a gift from the Lord of Light – Tandy’s missing father.

Cloak and Dagger are returning to the United States after their quest ended in Cloak & Dagger (2nd Series) #11.

Doctor Strange begins repairing his Sanctum Sanctorum while reflecting upon the ancient artifacts he lost in a fierce battle to save the world and his friends. He turns his attention to Topaz who uses her newfound power to heal Wong. She believes her empathic abilities can also help Stephen resolve his internal turmoil. She recoils at his intense pain of loss and forces him to call Clea. The ruler of the Dark Dimension confesses her love, but he can not reciprocate. Doctor Strange is a servant of the light and believes that he must deny himself to stray true to his purpose as Sorcerer Supreme. Meanwhile, a storm brews outside bringing a new threat.

Doctor Strange is recovering from a battle with Urthona in Doctor Strange (2nd Series) #81.
