In the wake of the successful launch of Woman magazine's first issue, J. Jonah Jameson storms into Carol Danvers' office. While pleased with the success, he's enraged that her feature on Ms. Marvel, which he specifically demanded be included, paints the superhero a positive light. While he is berating her, Carol suddenly passes out as she experiences a premonition of flames, fighting, and explosions. When she regains consciousness, she slips out of the Daily Bugle offices and transforms into Ms. Marvel, then flies off towards the refineries of New Jersey, all the while being unknowingly watched. Following her premonition, she discovers a refinery under attack by Grotesk, who has come to the surface to claim the Cavorite Crystal being studied at the plant. Caught in the midst of the flames and Grotesk's strength, Ms. Marvel is overwhelmed and seeming killed when part of the refinery explodes. Grotesk then emerges from the flames carrying the crystal and declaring to the bystanders & emergency workers that Ms. Marvel is dead, and their world will be next!
