Ms. Marvel drops in on her friend Dr. Michael Barnett for lunch as he’s entering a pizza place. While they eat, Barnett strikes a raw nerve when he asks Carol who she thinks the Psyche-Magnitron might have used as a template when it created Ms. Marvel. Carol hastily leaves, but Barnett is sure that that conversation is not over.
Later, Jean DeWolff arrives at the Woman magazine offices for a meeting with Carol Danvers and Frank Gianelli regarding the recent burglary in Carol’s office. Gianelli claims to have no information, but after DeWolff leaves, he confesses to Carol that the man’s name is Geoffrey Ballard, a high-ranking CIA agent he had met in Vietnam. He doubts that DeWolff has the authority to challenge anything Ballard might be doing.
Carol goes apartment shopping and meets with a friend of Gianelli’s named Arabella Jones. Arabella’s apartment is a mess, but it’s cheap and Carol takes a liking to it. Inspecting the garden area in the back, she’s surprised by a man that hurtles out of a nearby window and changes into Ms. Marvel in anticipation of trouble. The man turns out to be Wundarr, whose childlike reasoning drives him to attack Ms. Marvel. She punches him right back into the apartment he came out of, and inside finds Wundarr and his guardian, Annie Christopher, who explains that they were just assaulted by an intruder who kidnapped Annie’s friend Nita. Ms. Marvel pursues and quickly catches up to the kidnapper, who turns out to be Tiger Shark. During the ensuing fight, Tiger Shark’s comments cause Ms. Marvel to realize the identity of his captive: Nita is actually Namorita, Prince Namor’s cousin.
Tiger Shark hurls a car at Ms. Marvel and two children, and she takes the impact of the car to save them. By the time she extricates herself from the wreckage, Tiger Shark and Namorita have already made it to the ocean.
