Lissa and Buck remained entranced when Moondark turned Jack back into the Werewolf and again forced him to fight Spider-Man.

The former were intended to sail in line of battle, and engage the enemy broadside on, at distances of sometimes 10 metres, with the aim of boarding and capturing, rather than sinking, the enemy.
Lissa was a scrappy and clumsy affair with ironclads blundering about, unable to aim with much precision, and hence missing or colliding with each other.
Lissa was nevertheless indecisive and insignificant, and typically, the powers took all the wrong lessons from the battle: for the next 30 years all navies were obsessed with ramming, and ironclads had heavy underwater 'beaks' at the bows.
