X-amining Ms. Marvel #10 - Patreon First

"Cry Murder -- Cry MODOK!"
October 1977

In a Nutshell
Ms. Marvel defeats MODOK & Deathbird

Writer: Chris Claremont
Penciler: Sal Buscema
Inker: Tom Palmer
Letters: John Costanza
Colors: Phil Rachelson
Editor-in-Chief: Archie Goodwin

Trapped between AIM and the rogue faction led by MODOK & Deathbird, Carol Danvers tries to defend herself without transforming into Ms. Marvel. But when she is threatened with bodily harm, Ms. Marvel forces the transformation to save them both. As Deathbird engages Ms. Marvel, MODOK is able to take control of AIM's missile launchers and co-opt their plan to take over NASA's Skylab. Back at Woman magazine offices, Tracy Burke tries to manage things in Carol's absence. Elsewhere, Ms. Marvel follows MODOK & Deathbird to AIM's South Bronx launchpad, and MODOK leaves Deathbird behind to stall Ms. Marvel as he boards the rocket. The fight between Deathbird & Ms. Marvel puts them into the path of the rocket's blast, and when it launches, Deathbird is seemingly killed, though Ms. Marvel manages to survive. She then rushes to abort the launch, destroying the rocket in midair. But when she tracks down the command capsule after it parachutes to the ground, she discovers that MODOK has somehow disappeared.
