Stepping out of the shower, Jessica Drew( finds the Shroud in her apartment. Introducing himself, he explains his origins to her, and his ties to the Cult of Kali. He asks for Jessica's help into breaking into a SHIELD facility to help him find information on the Cult of Kali, expressing that he needs her help because, due to his blindness, he cannot read.

As Spider-Woman and the Shroud break into the SHIELD outpost that she knows of, Jerry Hunt and his SHIELD colleague visit the Hatros Institute. This does not escape the notice of Adrienne Hatros, who calls her fellow cult members, suggesting that their next sacrifice be the two snooping SHIELD agents. As Jerry and his colleague are captured, Spider-Woman and Shroud (with the information they gathered from SHIELD's files) track down the Cult to an old tomb where they find Jerry and his colleague about to be sacrificed by the cult.

After a battle against the Cultists, the Shroud and Spider-Woman make short work of them and free Jerry and the other captive. After the battle, the Shroud bids farewell to Spider-Woman and departs. While back at the Hatros Institute, Adrienne Hatros is revealed to be Nekra, who has deduced Spider-Woman's true identity and vows to get revenge against her for ruining her plans.
