After returning from a date with Sam Adams, Carol Danvers is stunned when her old friend Salia Petrie shows up at her door, having believed Salia to have died during a space mission. Carol is even more surprised when Salia attacks her, knocking her out. Carol wakes up aboard the Guardians of the Galaxy's space station Drydock, a prisoner of the Faceless One, who saved Salia's life in order to use her to bring Carol to the Faceless One so he can control her power. Managing to escape the environmental test chamber the Faceless One used to brainwash Salia, Carol transforms into Ms. Marvel and meets the Guardians' leader, Vance Astro, the only Guardian present. They team up to take down the Faceless One. When Ms. Marvel manages to destroy the Faceless One's android body with liquid coolant, he flees, but Vance prevents him from leaving with Salia. Vance then uses his mental powers to restore Salia's mind, after which Ms. Marvel reveals her secret identity to her friend, promising to take her home.
