Synopsis:
Rick Jones decides to leave the Avengers Mansion in order to embark on a tour, alongside manager Mordecai P. Boggs and a fellow singer. He takes leave of the Avengers, as well as his girlfriend, Lou-Ann, marking the end of their relationship. Meanwhile, the being known as Nitro attacks a NASA base in Indiana and steals the deadly nerve gas known as Compound 13, acting on behalf of the mysterious Lunatic Legion. After he and his company accidentally encounter Nitro on the street, Rick switches places with Captain Marvel but Nitro’s power of blowing himself up makes short work of Mar-Vell. Mar-Vell is eventually contacted by NASA security officer Carol Danvers, who warns him of the lethal nature of Compound 13. Finally, Mar-Vell manages to defeat Nitro, seemingly killing him, but notices there is a gas leak in the canister and rushes to seal it. He succeeds but, seemingly affected by the gas, loses consciousness and collapses on the ground.
