2009-05-06 01:48:20 Ikkstakk Synopsis The first issue of Woman magazine has hit newsstands, and J. Jonah Jameson is not happy. Instead of writing a story discrediting Ms. Marvel as he had requested, he finds that Carol Danvers’ story lauds her exploits and even calls her “the Super-Hero Sensation of the Seventies.” Carol holds her own in a shouting match with Jameson until another seventh-sense premonition drops her. In the vision, she sees Ms. Marvel and firefighters in a refinery blaze, being attacked by an unseen giant and buried under rubble while trying to put the fire out. When Carol awakens, she discovers that a reporter-photographer named Frank Gianelli has entered her office. She assigns him to cover the refinery fire in New Jersey while she heads to Dr. Barnett’s office, but Ms. Marvel takes over before she can get there. Arriving at the refinery, Ms. Marvel meets the fire chief, who orders her away, and a scientist named Dr. Ellis, who is concerned about the Cavourite Crystal in his nearby laboratory which is also ablaze. Ms. Marvel heads for the lab to save the four firemen she saw in her vision; trapped in one of the lab’s sub-basements, the firemen encounter Prince Gor-Tok of Sub-Terranea, better known as Grotesk. Grotesk plans to use the Cavourite Crystal to destroy the Earth, avenging the massacre of his people committed at the hands of humans with their atomic testing. Ms. Marvel flies into the basement and attacks Grotesk, giving the firemen a chance to escape. But as the heat and smoke from the fire quickly become unbearable, Ms. Marvel is barely able to knock Grotesk out, and the circuitry web built into her costume that enables her to fly shorts out during the fight. She grabs the NASA security canister that holds the Cavourite Crystal, recalling a years-earlier encounter with the Crystal when, as Carol Danvers, she was the security officer assigned to guard it when it was being studied by Dr. Peter Corbeau. Corbeau explained that he hoped the Crystal would provide humanity with a practical faster-than-light star drive, though a slight mistake in refining the energy flow through the crystal matrix would probably destroy the world. Now, the Crystal is destined to be taken into space aboard Salia Petrie’s shuttle to be tested in orbit. Unfortunately, without her costume’s circuitry web to protect her from the smoke, Ms. Marvel is too sick to notice Grotesk regaining consciousness, and he defeats her quickly, taking the Cavourite Crystal with him to the surface. Moments later, the refinery explodes and a forty-story fractioning tower crushes the lab building, burying her. Grotesk emerges victorious.
