Tanya comes to Warren with the news that her lost love, Karl Lykos, is alive and well in the Savage Land and she asks the high flying Angel to come with her and investigate. Jameson asks Peter Parker to tag along on the Savage Land expedition and bring back a juicy story for the Bugle. Once they reach the Savage Land, Spidey and Angel are quickly captured by the Mutates and brought to Brainchild.
Brainchild devolves Angel and Spider-Man into hideous monsters and sends them out to battle Ka-Zar and the Fall People. Tanya is captured and, when Brainchild devolves her as well, Lykos gets involved and sucks the mutation out of his woman and our heroes returning them to normal but, unfortunately, causing him to transform into Sauron. Spidey and Angel leave the Savage Land with Sauron still at large.
