Ms. Marvel carries the attack to Hecate, recognizing her as the leader, and shrugs off the Elementals’ attack rather easily. Hecate conjures a Kree Warhawk out of thin air, a Class I battle armor forged from adamantine steel that Ms. Marvel reckons has enough power to level New York City. She defeats it by remembering a basic weakness of the armor involving heat dissipation.
While Ms. Marvel resumes battling Hecate, the treacherous Elementals return to the trees where they’ve tied up Miles Olddan, Richard Harper and Zephyr, reasoning that they can use the distraction Ms. Marvel is providing to claim the Ruby Skarab for themselves. Hydron tortures Zephyr until the men agree to tell them where the Skarab is. They return to the beach, Skarab in hand, and they use the power-boosting device to attack Hecate and Ms. Marvel together. But Hecate’s power is almost the Skarab’s equal, and while they Elementals are momentarily stunned from a massive blast, she explains to Ms. Marvel that the Skarab has the power to reshape a world and is deadly dangerous in the wrong hands. They team up to fight the Elementals.
Ms. Marvel defeats Hellfire and hears a distress call from Salia Petrie aboard the Athena One shuttle--the Cavourite Crystal has begun to glow and is disrupting all of their onboard systems. She realizes that Hecate’s and the Skarab’s power bolts are triggering the Crystal’s warp matrix, but rather than respond to Carol’s inner pleadings that she fly to the shuttle to save Salia, she remains on the ground to save the Earth.
Magnum’s megalomania leads him to defeat Hydron himself. Hecate, seeing Ms. Marvel sneaking up behind Magnum, pulls the image of N’Kantu, the Living Mummy, from his mind. Terrified by the sudden appearance of his arch-nemesis, Magnum is unprepared for Ms. Marvel’s relentless attack and he falls. Ms. Marvel changes back into Carol, now truly furious that her best friend has died, and she swears to use the Ruby Skarab that she now holds to make both Hecate and Ms. Marvel pay.
