Xavin lashes out at Karolina, attempting to take her as his wife by force. But, suddenly the rest of the runaways get embroiled in the battle untill Chase lands the leapfrog on him. They escape in the frog, but Xavin also gets away. Xavin threatens to destroy the leapfrog if Karolina won't talk to him. She decides to meet him face to face after he says that the fate of the world depends on their marriage.

During their conversation, Xavin explains that Karolina's parents brokered a deal where they would give the coordinates of their homeworld and the hand of their daughter in order for the Skrulls to spare their adopted world. However, Xavin's parents were killed during the war, making him the ruler of the Skrull empire. He hopes for Karolina to marry him in order to bring peace to the region. Karolina agrees and flies into space with Xavin, leaving the rest of the runaways behind.
