Before Ms. Marvel dives into the ocean after Tiger Shark and Namorita, she heads to Avengers Mansion for help. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding with Beast leads to a brief fight, before the Scarlet Witch halts the fight long enough for Ms. Marvel to provide an explanation. The Scarlet Witch decides to trust her request to use the Avengers’ lab, and Ms. Marvel works there all night, adapting her knowledge of Kree science to the materials in the lab to fashion a sensor module that can track Tiger Shark and a metabolic converter serum that will allow her to breathe underwater for ninety minutes.

Ms. Marvel follows the sensor module two miles underwater to the wreck of the World War II U.S. destroyer Sumter, where Tiger Shark swims up behind her and attacks. She finds Namorita chained up inside the ship but has no time to rescue her. Swimming away for some distance, she twists away from one of the Sumter’s torpedoes that Tiger Shark threw at her, and it connects with a rock formation and explodes, disturbing a giant squid that also attacks her. Wrapped up in its tentacles, she’s just able to reach her flare pack and set off a light burst that terrifies the squid into retreating, squirting its ink cloud as it flees. The black cloud also blinds Tiger Shark, and Ms. Marvel presses her advantage. Finally, her superior fighting techniques get the best of Tiger Shark’s brute strength, and she cuts off the blood flow to his brain mere seconds before her metabolic converter serum runs out. As Tiger Shark falls unconscious, Ms. Marvel also begins to drown.

She wakes up later aboard an Atlantean cruiser. Namorita had been able to free herself and, impressed by the surface dweller’s concern for her, got her into an air pocket aboard the destroyer while she went for help. And since she reckons Ms. Marvel saved her life, it was only fair that she return the favor.
