After finishing the Where Have You Been Flame mission and the Science Buddy main story mission in Spider-Man 2, Wraith will give Peter a call while roaming in the open world. She’s found a cult hideout and thinks that if they team up, they can take them down faster.

Just head towards the objective marker on the eastern part of the Chinatown district, and when you reach the roof, interact with the door that has the cult symbol on it to start the Everything Burns mission. Wraith will appear on the scene, and she’ll explain she’s been tracking the cult for a few weeks.
