Hoping to escape the base during the chaos of the A.I.M. civil war, Carol keeps her head down and runs for cover, but she’s too late to prevent MODOK, who’s seen her unmasked face, from recognizing her. Death-Bird attacks her again, and while MODOK and his men press the attack on the enemy A.I.M. agents, Ms. Marvel and Death-Bird’s fight carries them up into Alden’s Department Store, causing instant bedlam.
MODOK bests his foes and takes control of A.I.M.’s missile complex in the South Bronx. He calls Death-Bird to his side, and she breaks off the fight while yellow-suited A.I.M. agents make targets of the police, buying time for their comrades below to evacuate the base. Ms. Marvel returns to the base to find a dying Mr. Elliot, A.I.M. agent and Alden’s store manager, who explains that A.I.M. had planned to take over Skylab, capture the Cavourite Crystal and learn the secret of interstellar flight. MODOK had the same plan and beat them to it, planning to use the South Bronx launch facility to shoot himself into orbit.
Ms. Marvel races to the launch facility, hidden inside a decaying warehouse, just in time to stop MODOK and Death-Bird from boarding the ICBM rocket on the launchpad. MODOK abandons Death-Bird and boards the rocket alone, and Ms. Marvel and Death-Bird engage in a fierce battle until the rocket’s engines fire. Death-Bird dives into the flames and Ms. Marvel seeks cover in the control room, shielded from the blast by the equipment. Once the rocket is in the sky, she simply presses the abort control and the rocket self-destructs. Ms. Marvel flies to Inwood Hill Park where MODOK’s escape capsule is parachuting down, but she’s astonished to find the capsule empty once it lands.
