During a summer tour, the Ghostbusters stopped in New Orleans to take on private job for a Mr. Thibodeaux. The locals suspected the Ghostbusters were going to capture the ghost of their beloved Voodoo queen Marie Laveau and formed an angry mob in Lafayette Square. Once Peter Venkman neutralized the crowd with positively charged Psychomagnotheric Slime, they moved onto the Garden District to meet with Thibodeaux and their true client, Marie Laveau. The next night, on St. John's Eve, the Ghostbusters trapped Marie Laveau II before she could exact her revenge.
