Editor-in-Chief: Archie Goodwin

Acting on a tip from Carol Danvers, SHIELD agents sweep Alden's department store for any trace of AIM. Finding nothing, they depart, none too pleased with Carol, while AIM, pleased to have skirted by SHIELD, plots against her. Later, Carol meets Tracy Burke, a respected photojournalist, at a bar, hoping to hire her as an assistant editor for Woman magazine. During their conversation, a group of thugs try to rob the bar, and Carol manages to fight them off without transforming into Ms. Marvel. A few days later, Carol goes to the beach with Michael Barnett, and is drawn to a nearby research facility. Transforming into Ms. Marvel, she discovers Grotesk, attempting to use the Cavorite Crystal to create a warp generator that will destroy the world. The two fight, and Grotesk nearly drowns Ms. Marvel. But she is able to use Kree battle techniques to trick Grotesk and gain the upper hand, knocking him into the warp generator, seemingly destroying them both. She transforms back into Carol, and with the Cavorite Crystal in tow, heads back to Michael.
