    The infamous KGB operative (aka Charlemagne) is a long-time friend and associate of Wolverine! And when Logan hears that she's back in business, the Adamantium-laced X-Man likewise travels to Germany to find her!

    Sadly the Bugle-sponsored business trip turns tragic when Peter discovers Ned murdered in their hotel. Oh no, who killed Betty's husband? The Amazing Spider-Man invades East Berlin and teams up with Wolverine to unearth the truth! But the web-slinger's noble intentions lead him into a clandestine world of grisly violence and repulsive death!
