Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Anti-detection equipment conceals an A.I.M. base’s disguised as a storefront. SHIELD, blaming Carol for faulty intelligence, evacuates, and Carol trudges off to meet Tracy Burke, a once-famous photojournalist who Carol hopes to convince to come out of retirement to become associate editor at Woman magazine. Carol then experiences a seventh-sense vision of an Air Force/FAA radar station on a beach consumed by a massive implosion.

The next day, Carol enjoys a stroll on the beach at Montauk Point with Dr. Barnett. They’re about to head back to Barnett’s beach house for dinner when they come upon the Air Force/FAA radar station Carol saw in her vision. Carol sneaks under the fence and finds the security officers unconscious. She transforms into Ms. Marvel and breaks into the station’s loading dock, discovering Grotesk inside. Equally astonished at meeting the other again, they quickly recover and start to fight. Ms. Marvel notices the station has a research lab that is testing a military laser cannon. Grotesk is using the cannon to fire energy into the Cavourite Crystal, which will cause the warp energy implosion she saw in her vision. Grotesk causes a hydrogen explosion that blows them out of the station into the water. He drowns her before returning to the station to regulate the energy flow into the Crystal.

Ms. Marvel survives the drowning attempt and renews the battle. An enraged, Grotesk attacks, unprepared. Ms. Marvel hurls him into the laser, causing the warp energy implosion that opens a gateway to another dimension. The gateway soon closes and the blast clears. Dr. Barnett finds Carol alone on the beach, everything except her and the Cavourite Crystal vaporized.
