Strange tracks the man's location using the left-behind clothing, and soon confronts the evil mystic in an epic battle! Strange places a mystic veil over The Demon's mind, saying that in time it will be lifted, and he will know who it was that defeated him, and can destroy him. Strange frees the disciple, bidding him to go on his way and never look back.
