During therapy with Michael Barnett, Carol Danvers experiences a premonition of future events, in which she's battling the Avenger known as Vision as Ms. Marvel over some kind of high-tech truck. Leaving Barnett's office, she heads off to Stark International's Long Island complex for a story about their hiring practices. While there, she spots the vehicle from her premonition, Stark's new armored truck for hauling dangerous materials, with Vision riding along to provide additional protection for its cargo. Transforming into Ms. Marvel, she flies after the truck, attempting to make it stop and thereby triggering the fight she saw in her premonition. As the two heroes fight, they are watched remotely by MODOK, who feels AIM's interest in Ms. Marvel is justified. When Ms. Marvel is able to briefly take Vision out of the fight, she stops the truck, but is attacked by its driver, who turns out to be a robot created by AIM with orders to release the cargo of the truck, triggering an explosion that would kill millions. A recovered Vision teams up with Ms. Marvel and they stop the driver, but are left wondering who would want to kill that many people, as MODOK watches from afar.
