Story

On a trip to Scotland, Spider-Woman and a friend get captured by an alien race who believes her to be their long lost queen. After, some resistance, the alien race manage to subdue and consequently brainwash her into believing that she is their queen. Meanwhile, Billy and Jeff are trapped inside a "Spider-Tron" which is slowing filling with gas that will turn them into one of the alien race. While that was occurring, the now brainwashed Spider-Woman is in a ceremony where the alien race revealed their gargantuan Spider tank. They however lack a fuel source to power the great machine; ordering "Spider-Queen" to do her duty. Spider-Woman escapes the cave to infiltrate a nuclear gas plant and subdue the staff. Using the fuel, the alien race was able to power up the tank and began an invasion of London where they deployed their soldiers and webbed the civilians. Meanwhile, Billy and Jeff managed to escape their chambers and board their helicopter to escape the cave. They soon encounters the Spider tank and got caught in one of its claws. Fortunately for the duo, Spider-Woman was able to snap out of her trance and regain her memories as Jessica Drew when her Spider-Sense prevented her from crushing the helicopter when the king ordered her to do so. She then turned back into Jessica Drew, still not recovering her Spider-Woman memories. However, she was soon ejected out of the tank when the king believed her to be nothing more than an imposter. As she was plummeting, Jessica was able to remember her secret identity and transform mid-air landing onto the tank’s arms where she freed Billy and Jeff. Knowing that she was outmatched, Spider-Woman soon retreated to the alien's cave, encountering the Loch Ness Monster once more. This time, she was able to tame Loch Ness monster using the Spider people technology and had the monster destroy the tank and clean up the city in the aftermath of the invasion.
