Mantra and Warstrike confront Strauss for trying to strand them in Boneyard's dimension. Mantra warns Strauss not to double-cross her again. Thanking Warstrike for his help, Mantra flies off, quietly followed by one of Boneyard's demons. Searching for a new form after its battle with Prime (see Prime #4-5), the demon settles for the cartoon character Wiley Wolf. "Eden" is promoted to a position with Aladdin, and is then called to meet Marla at the morgue, where the bodies of Brent (Mantra #3) and Carl (Mantra #1) have turned up. Later, Mantra is attacked by Wiley Wolf. Driving him off, Mantra soon realizes that any Mantra impersonators could be in danger from Wiley. Dropping in on a photographer and his Mantra model, Mantra is pulled into a television by Wiley. After a comical cartoon battle, Mantra returns, victorious.
