After fighting a villain with the rest of the Runaways, Molly was knocked into the aquaduct and abducted by the provost of the School of the Seven Bells. In an Oliver Twist way, the provost forces her and three other kids to steal for him, lest they be turned to stone. He sends them off to steal $10,000 from a bank. Molly, unwilling to become a villain like her parents, comes up with a plan to steal the provost's wand. This plan mostly entails beating the provost with a sack full of nickels, while the others steal and break his wand. Free from his control, the other kids decide to go back to their homes and Molly returns to her friends.
