Circle of Four Part Two

At the edge of Las Vegas, Doctor Strange and Daimon Hellstrom inspect an artifact that is stopping anything getting in or out of the city.

Inside the city at Blackheart's Hell Centrifuge, Johnny Blaze is riding his motorcycle struggling to keep it spinning so that earth won't be sucked down into Hell.

Within Blackheart's layer, Venom, Red Hulk, X-23, and Ghost Rider are faced with their antithesis - The Evangelist, Encephalon, X-666, and Ichor. Blackheart orders Gargoyle to stop whatever is preventing Hell from spreading to earth and the antithesis to kill the heroes. Encephalon attacks Red Hulk, The Evangelist attacks Venom, X-666 attacks Ichor, while Ghost Rider escapes to catch Gargoyle - Ichor follows.

The Evangelist fights Venom. He is able to seperate the symbiote from Flash and starts playing mind games with Flash. X-666 fights X-23 and gets in her head by calling her a cold hearted killer. While Encephalon fights Red Hulk, he is able to get into the Hulk's head and make him depressed. Blackheart watches the whole thing from his layer.

Ghost Rider is in route to the centrifuge when Blackheart gets in her head, reminding her about what she did in Nicaragua. As Ghost Rider slows up, Ichor is able to catch up and knock her off of her motorcycle. As Ghost Rider fights Ichor and hangs from a cliff, she call for her bike and is able to run over Ichor. With Blackheart still in her head, she rides back to the centrifuge.

On the outskirts of Las Vegas, Doctor Strange and Daimon can feel the burdens the heroes are facing and don't believe they can stop Hell from spreading.
