"Serpent Rising" Guest-starring Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Quasar, the Scarlet Witch, and the Thing. The Serpent Crown comes to life inside Project Pegasus! And that means big trouble when the project's security chief, Quasar, falls prey to the sinister crown's influence! However, the crown's reawakening stirs subconscious memories in the minds of the heroes who have battled the evil icon in the past! So the web-slinger and Doctor Strange plus the Scarlet Witch and Ben Grimm converge on Project Pegasus! But by the time the four heroes arrive, the situation is completely out of control...snake people and serpent crowns everywhere! Can the Master of the Mystic Arts prevent the serpent god Set from returning to Earth? Perhaps, but only if the wall-crawler can locate another famous icon...the cosmic cube! An excellent story! Cameo appearance by the Vision. Flashback cameos by Conan the Barbarian, Kull, Warlord Krang, the Viper, and the Sub-Mariner to recap the history of the Serpent Crown.
