Synopsis
S'ym and the Goblin Queen succeed in sacrificing baby Nathan Christopher, opening a permanent gateway between Earth and Limbo. With even heroes like Wolverine being subverted by demonic influence, Dr. Strange and his small band of rebels try to figure out a way to reclaim their world. Strange awakens Rachel Summers (who has been turned into a store mannequin) and asks her to call the Phoenix Force from space to purge the Earth of demons. When it arrives, the Goblin Queen shows up to try and wrest control of the power from Rachel. The heroes prevail but have to start over on a primeval world.

Indexer Notes

Based on the Inferno crossover which ran through a number of Marvel comics in 1989; In one of the more disturbing scenes in comics, a demonic Wolverine eats a newborn baby "straight from the delivery room."
