Synopsis
Rom and Starshine discover a cadre of Wraiths draining people of their blood. When Wraiths are able to mentally attack SHIELD Esper agents, Dr. Strange shows up and mystically helps them boost their defenses. The Esper agents are able to point Rom to a hospital where Wraiths have gathered en masse. In the selfsame hospital, Rick Jones prepares to receive his first blood transfusion to combat his radiation induced cancer, little knowing that the blood has been tainted by Dire Wraiths.

Indexer Notes

Rick Jones appears having been diagnosed with gamma-ray induced cancer via Incredible Hulk, the (Marvel, 1968 series) #268.
