Synopsis
Xandu uses Spider-Man to break into Dr. Strange's home and steal a crystal, which he then uses to recreate the Wand of Watoomb. When Spidey and Doc Strange attempt to battle Xandu, he teleports them to another dimension and causes their powers to cease working. Strange casts a spell that allows him to use Spidey's powers and Spidey to use magic and the pair take down Xandu. Dr. Strange tries to resurrect Xandu's love Melinda, but finds that she is completely dead.
