Synopsis
The Cat asks for Spider-Man's help in tracking down the Man-Killer, a former athlete who was turned into a cyborg after a serious accident. Man-Killer is acting on behalf of a militant feminist group and recently started killing people opposed to women's liberation. The Cat and Spider-Man avert an attack on a power plant and are able to stop Man-Killer by telling her that her group is secretly sponsored by Advanced Idea Mechanics (A.I.M.), a crime organization dominated by men.
