Marvel Team-Up #51 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The Wraith--Brian De Wolff--and his father Phillip are put on trial for their crimes, with SHIELD technology ensuring that neither one can use his mental powers to escape. Iron Man and Doctor Strange are present and Peter Parker is there as the Daily Bugle photographer. Phillip manages to control the mind of a SHIELD technician enough to manipulate him into unplugging the safety device. The De Wolffs break free and chaos ensues with Spider-Man, Iron Man and Dr. Strange battling the Wraith's illusions. Finally the De Wolffs are defeated and Strange manages to correct Brian's brain damage, freeing him from his father's control. Phillip is convicted and Brian exonerated.
