The heroine sees the Clown pick up a hitchhiker while she is on patrol and manages to stop the madman before he kills the girl. The hitchhiker is injured, so Spider-Woman has to take her to the hospital and the Killer Clown is able to make his escape. The murderer follows Spider-Woman away from the hospital to Lindsay McCabe’s home, breaking into the house that evening and attacking Lindsay under the mistaken belief that she is Spider-Woman. Jessica returns in the nick of time and the Clown escapes again, but they lure him out of hiding with news reports that Lindsay survived his attack.  Spider-Woman ambushes the Clown when he tries to finish the job with Lindsay at the hospital and chases him to the old abandoned circus ground where she defeats the deranged man.
