After the dinner, Morgan sits down and begins to read the
He reads and relays a story dealing with the Strobe crime spree.
Monica begins to worry that Morgan will leave again for the
night, and asks him to stay in.
Morgan says that he wants to investigate who’s using her old
moniker and wants to go on patrol.
Monica then asks him who’s the dominant person inside of him,
Morgan or Spectre.
Morgan comments that they both know the answer as he summons his
costume around him.
As he leaves, Monica reminds him that she’s in love with
Morgan, not Spectre.
begins his patrol by checking out some of the local jewelry stores, in
hopes of finding the Strobe copycat.
As he passes one jewelry store, he notices four guys sneaking
around the back of the building.
He watches them as they break in and decides to use his Psychic
Invisibility to follow them.
He enters the building and witnesses them stealing the valuables,
so he knocks one out with a roundhouse kick, still using his Psychic
Unfortunately for Spectre, as the three remaining men watch their
friend fall to the ground, they see past his mental illusion and point
their guns at him.
Spectre uses his telekinesis to whip the guns from their hands
and gets ready to pound on the thugs.
Suddenly, Spectre hears a woman’s voice, and turns around to
see a very sexy woman dressed in a green and black costume.
Spectre demands to know who she is, but her only reply is a
comment on how ungentlemanly he is for not introducing himself first
when dealing with a lady.
Spectre introduces himself to her, as he begins to taunt her.
She uses Pheromones on Spectre, but they seem to have no effect
as she introduces herself as Lady Jezebel.
Not giving up, Lady Jezebel continues to use her Pheromones
against Spectre, while Spectre continues to unwittingly resist.
Instead of falling under her spell, Spectre uses his Telekinesis
to cause everything not bolted down to be hurled at her goons.
With all the remaining goons KO’d, Spectre turns his attention
back to Lady Jezebel.
However, due to the strain that his attack caused on him, his
resistance begins to weaken as he falls under Lady Jezebel’s spell.
She begins to lay it on thick, as she curls up in Spectre’s
arms and Spectre leans down and kisses her.

Bodycount whirls around and blasts Spectre with his Doomblaster, which
Spectre easily deflects using a telekinetic force field.
Spectre then tells Bodycount to leave, in which he responds to in
typical cop fashion and threatens Spectre.
Spectre summons all his strength for a powerful telekinetic blast
which takes Bodycount out on the first hit.
As Spectre begins to approach the fallen Bodycount, a flash of
light blinds him momentarily as Starlight appears in front of him.
She confronts him about being gone for a week and turning to
crime, in which he responds that he’s met someone else and they are
deeply in love.
Starlight, hurt and confused, slaps Spectre, but he doesn’t
seem to snap out of it.
She hears the jewelry store’s alarm go off and warns Spectre
that if he doesn’t stop this crime, that she will.

She also warns Spectre no to be there when she gets there, as
she’s still pretty upset over being mentally attacked.
Regaining herself, Starlight volunteers to stay with Lady Jezebel
until the police arrive.
She asks Spectre if he really loved Lady Jezebel, and before he
can answer she tells him that she thinks he can only have relationships
with people behind masks, not real people.
