Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Agent, you might have noticed the eclipse that started yesterday... and didn't go away.

Someone or something has tidally locked the Earth and Moon, keeping us shadowed here in New York.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
In London it's even stranger. The sun's not coming up there.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
This is an enchantment. I know not, as yet, who has done it... but the sudden appearance of vampires is an unsubtle hint.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Vampires?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Demons as well.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Come on, Strange. You didn't just astrally project yourself here to pass the time. What's going on?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I am here to warn you, Director. The eclipse madness will infect not just the vampires and demons--though they would be hazard enough--but the more mundane criminals of the city as well.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
We'll stay on top of it. Can you do anything about this enchantment?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I can... as soon as I have discerned its nature. I will begin at once.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Very good. People, I would like the vampire and demon population of this area reduced to zero. Move.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Let me know if you run into Kolchak. We'll bring him on board.



Deploy 1

Screen Text

Emergency responders trying to coordinate help for people at the edge of the eclipse zone are running into some toothy problems. Send a hero to cover them while they try to help people get out of the darkened area.

Deploy 2

Screen Text

Medusa has just informed us that she captured a vampire right after they first appeared. Let's help her get it to a secure interrogation facility.

Start

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Agent, Medusa was one of our first field assets to encounter a vampire. She's got it wrapped up in her hair. Get it to a secure facility so we can interrogate it.



Medusa:
Medusa Icon 1.png
This was hardly the way I anticipated joining this battle.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
No, it's great. I wish we had more people who could hair-cuff vampires.



Complete

Medusa:
Medusa Icon 1.png
I have released it into the custody of... what did you call them?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Our Occult Debriefing and Interrogation Unit.



Medusa:
Medusa Icon 1.png
Right.



Deploy 3

Screen Text

We've got an astronomical simulation going that should outline the area of full eclipse. But we won't know for sure until we send a hero to run a Quinjet around that perimeter and find out exactly where the darkness ends.

Deploy 4

Screen Text

We're combing S.H.I.E.L.D. records to see if there are any friendly vampires we might be able to bring in. Blade's an obvious one, but is there anyone else?

Start

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We're going to see if there are any vampires out there we can bring in on our side. But we need some help reaching out to potential candidates.

Well, first we need help locating them. Nico, we could use a hand.



Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1.png
A friendly vampire census? I always thought missions for S.H.I.E.L.D. would be more exciting.



Complete

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Is Hannibal King still around? What about Spitfire?



Nico Minoru:
Nico Minoru Icon 1.png
I'm still working on it. Do these people even have cell phones?



Deploy 5

Screen Text

The National Park Service just called in an SOS from Liberty Island. Get Gorgon down there and make sure the rangers aren't demon food.

Start

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We've got an emergency distress call from the Park Service on Liberty Island. Gorgon, we're stretched a little thin. Maybe you can jump down there and stamp out whatever problem they're having?



Gorgon:
Gorgon Icon 1.png
I will. Then I'll come back here and stamp out your impulse to make stupid puns.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Well, wouldn't that be a kick in the teeth.



Complete

Gorgon:
Gorgon Icon 1.png
The demons won't be a problem any more.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Much appreciated, Gorgon. We appreciate the steps you've taken to help out.



Gorgon:
Gorgon Icon 1.png
I warned you--



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Okay, sorry. Okay. I couldn't resist. That was the last one.



MiniBoss - Jack O'Lantern

Reveal

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Spider-Man, we're tracking Jack O'Lantern, who has just received something from a demon at this location.

Swing by and relieve him of his package, if you would.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Um, sure. Is this going to involve fighting demons, too? I need to know if I should wear my demon-fighting pants.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
There are quite a few demons around. Plan your wardrobe accordingly.



Start

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Hey, Jack, we hear you're having tea with demons. You know that's not cool, right?



Spider-Man, is there something about your blood? The demons got all excited when they smelled you. Jack O'Lantern:
Jack O'Lantern Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
It's so nice to be wanted. Hey! Watch the fangs and spikes!



Lose

This is my time of year, web-head. I'm feeling strong! Jack O'Lantern:

Repeat

My pals here were hoping to get another bite at you. Jack O'Lantern:

I know busting pumpkins is vandalism, but sometimes I just can't resist.



Uuhhhh... Jack O'Lantern:
Jack O'Lantern Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
The thing Jack got from the demons was a key. I'd bring it back, but one of the demons swallowed it and ran off.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Hold tight there while we collect Jack O'Lantern.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
A key? Forgive me if I don't like the sound of demons handing out keys. I mean, what are they going to unlock?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Spider-Man, forget what I said about staying there. Find that demon and see where it's taking the key.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Roger that, S.H.I.E.L.D. boss lady.



MiniBoss - Grey Gargoyle

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I found Grey Gargoyle. He just had a little tete-a-tete with a vampire and a demon.

I guess that makes it a tete-a-tete-a-tete. Anyway, one of them gave him something.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Good, precise intel as always.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Engage, Spider-Man. We have reason to believe Jack O'Lantern and Grey Gargoyle are both on a mission for the Hood.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
We do? Exciting. I'll see what yon Gargoyle has to say about that.



Start

Away, Spider-Man. Run to the sun if you want to live. Grey Gargoyle:
Grey Gargoyle Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I'd kind of rather bring the sun back here. Won't you miss stuff like flowers and rainbows?

I know I would. So I'm going to have to ask you to hand over whatever you got from the Fang and Claw Club back there.



Lose

Now if Jack O'Lantern has completed his errand, we may begin... Grey Gargoyle:
Grey Gargoyle Icon.png



Repeat

Now the vampires have your scent. I told you to run. Grey Gargoyle:
Grey Gargoyle Icon.png



Complete

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Too many vampires. I mean, one would be too many, really, but there were too many for me to stop Grey Gargoyle from getting away.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Stay on him. If our intel is good, he's going to meet the Hood.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I hear and obey, O Mighty Leader.



Boss - Morbius

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
It's everybody's favorite fake vampire, Doctor Michael Morbius. Don't look now--ugh, seriously, don't. He kind of fell off the no-blood-drinking wagon.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
There might be a chance to gain some intel about the vampires here, Spider-Man.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Slap some sense into Morbius and see if we can get him on our side.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
But I don't have my counseling license. I'll get sued.



Start

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Whoa. Morbius. Didn't you have some kind of serum you made so you didn't have to go around gnawing on people's veins?



I cannot fight my nature. Leave me, or I will feed on you next! Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
So the serum didn't work, is what you're saying.



Don't you judge me. I tried... how I tried... but the air is thick with the scent of blood, and vampires run rampant. How am I to resist? I must feed! Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Oh boy. This is going to be harder than I thought.



In-Fight

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Hey! Knucklehead! You're not a real vampire! Remember? Snap out of it!



So hungry... ow! Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Lose

This hunger... I can't control it. Must feed... Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Repeat

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I thought we had an agreement. You don't drink people's blood and S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't put you in a cage.



Complete

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I don't like hitting you, but--well, actually, I do like hitting you, but I know I shouldn't. What I'm trying to say is I'll stop if you drop the vampire act and tell me about the real vampires.



You mean Dracula. Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Dracula? Um, yeah. I didn't know I meant that, but yeah, that's totally what I mean.



Who else can keep vampires and demons from going after each other? Only the big guys. Dracula and Mephisto. Doesn't take a genius to see that.

They've cast a spell to hold London in darkness... and New York in shadow. As long as it stays dark, humans in New York and London are going to be a food supply.

Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
And you think Dracula is going to let you join the party?



That's what I... no. I know he won't. I was just... hungry. Morbius:
Morbius Icon.png



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Then you need to come on in and we'll get you some help.



Epic Boss - The Hood

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Now we know what the Grey Gargoyle and Jack O'Lantern were up to: Scouting locations for the Hood to have his own little demon rally.

Grey Gargoyle and the demon that was with Jack O'Lantern just opened a portal and flooded this area with demons.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
The good news is they're fighting the vampires.

The bad news is the Hood just stepped out of the portal with more demons. We need to shut it down, like, yesterday.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I will do it. Parker Robbins does nothing on his own. We must discover which demons he has allied himself with this time... although I suspect Mephisto.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
That's what Morbius said, that Mephisto and Dracula were in on this together.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
It shall be confirmed shortly--or new information brought to light.



Start

Strange, I figured you'd watch from the comfy confines of the Sanctum Sanctorum. Getting your hands dirty already? The Hood:
The Hood Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
The dirt on my hands, to borrow your phrase, is quite innocuous in comparison to the blood on yours, Robbins.

You have made yourself the instrument of diabolical powers, and you must answer for that. By the Vishanti, you must answer for it!



Lose

I don't see any Vishanti around, Strange. You know what I do see? Lots and lots of demons. You've got a problem, pal. The Hood:
The Hood Icon.png



Repeat

Bet you never expected to see the Moon turned into a weapon, did you? Wait'll you see what comes next. The Hood:
The Hood Icon.png



Complete

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I have closed the portal, but the Hood escaped through it... to whatever demonic realm he is using as a recruiting ground.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Do we know he's working with Mephisto? Or could he have his own plan?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
He channels the powers of the Nisanti. That race of demons is not one of Mephisto's creations... but that does not rule out an alliance of convenience.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We'll see what Jack O'Lantern knows about it. He's probably been stewing on the Raft long enough to be chatty.



Epic Boss - The Hood/Dormammu

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Now we face Dormammu and the Hood together. Robbins has sought new allies now that his previous partnership proved insufficient.

We too should add to our ranks. Eric Brooks?



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
I'm along for the ride. Long as there aren't any vampires, I'll get some exercise with demons.



Start

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Dread Dormammu, you scavenge at Mephisto's leftovers? I had thought you possessed of more pride.



Pride enough that your gibes do not shake me, Strange. They tell me only that you are desperate. Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Yeah, nobody's got a bigger mouth than a scared little man. The Hood:
The Hood Icon.png



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
Desperate? Hardly. You saved us the trouble of hunting you down in the Dark Dimension.



Oh, you will see the Dark Dimension soon enough. I will bring it to you all... Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Lose

Now vampire and demon alike will answer to Dormammu! Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Complete

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Dormammu, it seems, has not fully committed to your cause, Parker Robbins.



Go to hell. The Hood:

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
What's the line from Faustus... "Why this is hell, nor am I out of it."



Brits. Always quoting poetry. Okay, Strange, you got me. Let's see how long you can keep me. The Hood:
The Hood Icon.png

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
It is as I feared. Dracula and Mephisto have combined their powers to perform this eclipse ritual. Morbius confirms it.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
We've got him in some kind of Blood-Drinkers Anonymous. As long as we can keep him on the program, he'll help. So at least we've got that going for us.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
A crucial update. Have you more news or may I proceed?



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Yup. Go ahead.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Good. To the matter at hand: I can end it and restore the normal diurnal course of the sun... but I will need a few things.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Such as?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Much of the necessary material I already possess... but there is a certain book in the possession of the Hellfire Club in London. It is known as the Darkhold.

While I prepare the enchantment, someone must bring it to the Sanctum Sanctorum.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Also, there are certain... components... that will easily be found here in New York.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Rat tails? Bedbug eggs?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Demon parts. I will give you a list.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Demon parts. By the pricking of my thumbs, et cetera and so on. Okay, Agent, we're splitting up.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Hill and Coulson, you're staying here. Stark and I will handle things in London. Let's get Strange his demon parts and get the sun coming up again.

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Back in the smoke, Agent, we've got an excellent guide here to the habits and vulnerabilities of the vampire. Meet Eric Brooks, better known as Blade.

He's from London and he's half vampire, so he's going to be an asset to us in several different ways. Blade, thanks for coming in.



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
If you're here to kill vampires, you're in the right place.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Psylocke will be leading Strike Team Lamia here in London. We'll also have Fantomex--and Blade. We don't want to waste his expertise.

Your primary task is to locate and collect The Darkhold. We know it's in London, and we suspect the Hellfire Club has it. Strange needs it to conduct the ritual that will counter what Dracula and Mephisto have done.



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
But along the way, we're going to kill a large number of vampires

Ready, Agent? Let's move. Dawn's not going to come if we don't find this book.



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
I'll canvas Hellfire Club houses and see if we can't do this the easiest way. Sebastian Shaw is a sociopath, but even he might find a permanently nocturnal London full of vampires an inconvenience.



Deploy 1

Screen Text

Time for the latest Hellfire sweep. Let's see if we can narrow down Shaw's location. If not, maybe we'll get lucky and run across Dracula.

Deploy 2

Screen Text

After our mutant civil war, we should keep an eye out for mutants looking to come after the Hellfire Club... and for Sentinels looking to finish them off.

Deploy 3

Screen Text

There's a vampire nest in the Tube. Blade's on another assignment. We can't let them stay there. Send a hero in.

There are demon portals open in this area. Is the Hood making an appearance. If not, who? Find out.

Start

Tony Stark:

Demonic portals? Here?



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Let's shut 'em down.



Complete

Tony Stark:

They were closed again by the time we got there... but there's no observable demon presence.

Does that mean someone was going in...?

We've lost touch with some of our Excalibur colleagues. Take a look around in case something's happened to them.

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
I have.

Where are they all? Did MI-13 send them all on a mission we didn't know about?



Psylocke:

If so, they didn't tell me.



MiniBoss - Selene

Reveal

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
Looking for Dracula, but who did I find? Selene. Seems our vampires have a little help from the Hellfire Club.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Take her out. If nothing else, it'll send a message to Dracula and Shaw that friendships have consequences.



Start

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
Selene. Making friends with the bloodsuckers?



I don't have any friends, Blade. Dracula has... asked a favor of Sebastian. I have my own aims to pursue. Selene:
Selene Icon.png



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
Dracula has a deal with Mephisto. What's he need Shaw for?



You'll have to ask him. Or ask Sebastian. Selene:

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
I'll do that, once I'm through with you.



Fool. No one is ever through with me, unless I decide they are. Selene:

Lose

You chase vampires. Adorable. Meanwhile others have set their sights on greater goals. Selene:

Repeat

Blade:

You're quite determined. Perhaps I should give you want you want... although you might not want it once you have it. Selene:

Enough riddles. Where's Shaw?



Watch me go, and I'll show you. Selene:

S.H.I.E.L.D.: Vampires are down. Selene is gone.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
She'll be running to tell Shaw we're looking for him. Psylocke, step up your search.



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
If you think you can do it faster, you're welcome to try.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I'm just offering some gentle encouragement, and a reminder that vampires and demons are, you know, feeding on people.



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
Oh, do tell. I hadn't any idea of that. I shall hurry!



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
What's with you two?



Tony Stark:

Don't ask me. Some people don't appreciate my leadership qualities.



MiniBoss - Mystique

Reveal

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
Hellfire Club gathering spots have turned up empty so far... until now. Mystique is here.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Shaw wouldn't trust her with the book, would he?



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
I should think not. On the other hand, he's not known for his predictability.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
If you think the book might be there, go in. If not, keep looking. This will be simpler if we can go straight to the top.



Start

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
This doesn't have to be violent... as much as both of us might like that. I'm looking for a book. Sebastian Shaw either has it or knows where it is. So I need to know where he is.



You're a turncoat and Nick Fury's plaything. The only thing you're going to get here is a shortcut to a coffin. Mystique:
Mystique Icon.png



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
I suppose it does have to get violent, then. Can't say I didn't try.



Lose

You got a little more than you bargained for, didn't you, traitor? Mystique:

Psylocke:

Maybe you don't have the book. But now you've made this personal.



Complete

Psylocke:

While Blade's off hacking away at vampires, I'm doing all the hard work, it seems.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Poor thing. Any sign of the book?



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
It's not here. Mystique? If you want to walk out of here, start talking.



I know Shaw's not himself. That means opportunity. I don't care about vampires, or the book. Mystique:
Mystique Icon.png



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
Then stay clear of S.H.I.E.L.D. until we've made our contact with Shaw.



Deal. As long as you stay clear of me. Mystique:

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Psylocke, we know where Shaw is. If we can get the book from him without restarting a war with the Hellfire Club, I'd prefer to do that.



Psylocke:

You'll forgive me if I don't have much faith that this plan will work.



Nick Fury:

The team goes with you. Don't get into a long conversation with him, Psylocke. Get the book and get out.



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
He's--his mind is under someone else's control, Fury. I can tell.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I love this. The master plotter Sebastian Shaw, turned into someone else's cat's-paw.



Start

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
Shaw, I'm here for a book called the Darkhold. We know you have it. Strange needs it, or we're not going to see the sun around here for a long time.



Catering to Doctor Strange's interests is not one of my preferred activities. Now, if there's nothing else... Sebastian Shaw:
Sebastian Shaw Icon.png



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
Don't tell me you're happy to have London turned into a vampire playground.



I feel no particular impulse to discuss my happiness with you. The Hellfire Club keeps its own counsel and makes its own decisions. Sebastian Shaw:
Sebastian Shaw Icon.png



Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1.png
And chooses the wrong side with astonishing consistency. Hand over the book.



I will not. Sebastian Shaw:

This will be the extent of my dealings with S.H.I.E.L.D. on this matter, I trust? Sebastian Shaw:

I care little for what you dislike, demon, and even less for constraining you. It is breaking you I am after, and with the power of the Vishanti I shall!

The Eye of Agamotto will pierce your lies and free those you have deceived!



The battle is joined, and sooner than I had thought. I thank you for that, Strange. It is too long since I took a life. Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



In-Fight

Fight for your friends' souls, Strange. Perhaps you will even win them back. It is of no consequence. There are always others willing to bargain for their fondest desires... Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
And there are always others willing to purify this world of the dark taint of your presence, Mephisto. Begone!



Lose

Who will be next to sign a contract...? Mephisto:

Repeat

Strange, you can either free your friends or protect yourself. Which will you choose? Mephisto:

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
As Mephisto's life force weakens, he must borrow against the contracts to survive. By overcoming his defenses, I have broken the contracts, and he has withdrawn to plot his next action.

I have lost much time in the preparation of the spell. Where is the Darkhold?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We think it's coming back from London, but we don't have an exact time for its arrival.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Mephisto will not wait long. He and Dracula together will build their powers, and I must turn my attention to final preparations.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Understood. We'll handle it from here.

Johnny Storm and the Scarlet Witch are free of their debt to Mephisto, thanks to Strange.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I owe you a debt, Stephen.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Careful, Wanda. Thinking you owe a debt what was got you into your predicament to begin with.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Even so. I'm grateful.



Human Torch:
Human Torch Icon 1.png
Me too. Mephisto... he played me for a sucker. I feel stupid.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
This is Mephisto's specialty. He has had millenia of practice. Now you are free. We move on.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
And now we return the favor by giving him enough time to get his magical ducks in a row.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Hold on, Agent. Fury and Stark are on their way back from London. We're heading into the endgame.

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Team Lamia is back from London with the Darkhold. Strange, this is your show now. Tell us what you need.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
With the Darkhold and the necessary demonic components in my possession, only one thing remains: I need time to conduct the ritual.

The reason for this alliance between Mephisto and Dracula is clearer to me now. In the creation of a vampire, the soul is unmoored and lost; Dracula and Mephisto together have realized that Mephisto can claim that soul.

Thus if their occult hold over the moon is not broken, every vampire created will be infused with the demonic power Mephisto grants upon claiming a soul.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
You're saying we're looking at an army of demon-vampire hybrids.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Yes. The more powerful demons and vampires we have already seen are early examples of this.

We do not wish to see the finished product, you may be certain of that.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Agent, you heard the Doctor. He needs time, and if we don't give it to him, the world is going to be an eternal shadow playground for demon vampires.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
If that's not incentive enough to fight, we all need to be in another line of work.

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
An elite demon force just deployed through a portal. They're headed for the Sanctum Sanctorum, and they're not leaving anything alive on their way.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Agent, Spider-Man's headed to cut them off, but he's going to need some help.



Start

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Okay, demons. More demons. I remember feeling pretty good about fighting demons after the last time I did it.

So how come I'm not exactly filled with optimism?



Lose

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Guys. A little help here?



Repeat

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
This demon overpopulation problem is getting ridiculous.

Maria Hill:

Spider-Man?



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
I'm here. Whew. That was... well, let's just say I hope I never have to do that again.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Hold your position. There might be more of them.



Spider-Man:
Spider-Man Icon 1.png
Oh, great. I was hoping you'd say that.

Agent Coulson:

Dracula's sending in his shock troops. These might be some of those souped-up demon vampires Strange was talking about.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Might?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
It's not like you can tell by looking at them. Morbius and Blade will have to tell us for sure.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Things are about to get fangy.



Start

Morbius:
Morbius Icon 1.png
Should one of us comment on the irony that we're fighting together against other vampires?



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
I don't do irony.



Lose

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
Get up, Morbius, before I add you to the pile. We're not done yet.



Repeat

Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
There's always more vampires to kill. Gives me a reason to live.



Complete

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Blade, give us a sit-rep. How were those super-vampires?



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
They die just like all the rest.



Morbius:
Morbius Icon 1.png
Only not as easily.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Then let's make sure Strange doesn't have to deal with them while he finishes doing whatever he's doing in there.



Boss - Mephisto/Dracula

Maria Hill:

Mephisto and Dracula have broken through Strange's defenses!



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We couldn't keep them out of the Sanctum Sanctorum.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Strange better bring his A game. All we can do is cheer him on at this point.



Start

Your inner sanctum is no longer yours alone, Strange. Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



Soon the Darkhold will no longer be yours, either. And when we have taken it, we will take your life. Dracula:
Dracula Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
The Darkhold's pages contain the end of your story, Dracula. Mephisto's end I will write myself.



Will you? How will you find the time to write when your soul is feeding my legions? Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
It is inscribed already, in the work I have done. Now, by the gaze of the eternal Vishanti, you will be consumed by the darksome chaos that first gave you form!



In-Fight

I feel the course of your power in the very veins of this place, Strange... but you have not yet begun to see my true strength.

Feed, Dracula! Once your fangs are stained with Strange's blood, our mastery of this world will be complete!

Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
By the Moons of Munnopor, I am no vampire's repast! Breathe deep the Vapors of Valtorr, and let that breath be your last!



Lose

First, I feed... then, Mephisto, you may claim what is left. Dracula:
Dracula Icon.png



Repeat

What hope remains to you, Strange? You are isolated and alone. Yield your soul to me, and you at least will be spared... Mephisto:
Mephisto Icon.png



Complete

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
It is done. Not the combined power of Mephisto and Dracula can overmaster the might of the Vishanti and the Sorcerer Supreme.

But my task is not yet complete. The pages of the Darkhold have yet to be turned, and the ritual completed...



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Get to it, then, willya?



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Your banality is invulnerable, Stark.

Maria Hill:

The moon. It's moving! It worked!



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Yes. It worked. It was always going to work, Agent Hill. We have answered a dire challenge, and restored the natural order of day and night.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
So the sun's going to come up tomorrow.



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
It will.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
That's the best news I've heard in weeks. I didn't want to book another session at the tanning salon.

But Morbius, you better get used to hiding out during the day again. At least until we can do something about your condition.



Blade:
Blade Icon 1.png
I'll do something about his condition.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Come on, there, Sir Stake-a-lot. Morbius chalked up a lot of demon and vampire kills. He's officially a good guy now.



Morbius:
Morbius Icon 1.png
S.H.I.E.L.D. techs are getting the serum optimized. I'm... I can control my hunger now. Time to get along.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Hey, look at that. I think it's about to be dawn. Man, I've never been so happy to find out I stayed up all night.
