With the help of Iron Man and a device from Reed Richards, Ms. Marvel learns that a shapeshifter named Mystique killed Michael Barnett. At Barnett's funeral, Carol's seventh sense delivers another vision of her impending death, of being buried in an avalanche before bursting into flames. Later still, Ms. Marvel traces Mystique to the offices of an air freight company. There, she discovers the head of the company, Paul Coelho, is an arms dealer, and observes him meeting with members of the Hellfire Club. When she's discovered, she's attacked by Donald Pierce & Harry Leland, escaping when Leland uses his power to drop her into the sewers. Later, as Carol Danvers, she becomes friendly with Coelho on a flight to Hong Kong, hoping to track him to Mystique. Meanwhile, following a vision from her companion Destiny, Mystique sends her agents Pyro & Avalanche to kill Ms. Marvel once and for all. They attack her in Hong Kong, and though she survives their attack, when she confronts Coelho, she discovers him dead, killed by Sebastian Shaw for double-selling his arms to both the Hellfire Club and Mystique's Brotherhood. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Marvel disappears from Destiny's sight, but when she emerges, Mystique's daughter Rogue attacks her. During their fight, Rogue unintentionally steal's Ms. Marvel's powers and memories, leaving her to be rescued by Spider-Woman. Afterwards, she works with Professor X to regain some measure of her memories before being transformed into the cosmic Binary and living amongst the stars.
