Professor Kerwin Korman brings his research of Ms. Marvel to Advanced Idea Mechanics, who agree with his assessment that she must be captured as soon as possible to exploit her incredible technology. X-ray photographs of her costume reveal electronic webbing that heightens her flying ability, which A.I.M. is nowhere near developing and cannot understand. They have rescued the Scorpion and are keeping him alive and unconscious in a nutrient solution, and they are reluctant to send Korman, who desires to be a field operative, to capture Ms. Marvel himself, even though he has invented a weapon he calls the tachyon blast that fires a bolt of energy faster than the speed of light. Korman, who calls himself the Destructor, assures them that Ms. Marvel is no match for his genius.

After leaving the A.I.M. base beneath Alden's Department Store in New York City, Korman travels to the cave near Cape Canaveral in Florida where his research has revealed that Ms. Marvel first appeared. He is familiar with the battle that occurred there between Captain Marvel and the villainous Kree Colonel Yon-Rogg, and surmises that Ms. Marvel somehow absorbed the atomic energy released during their fight.

Meanwhile, after having dinner out with Mary Jane Watson but leaving early due to another debilitating headache, Carol Danvers blacks out on the cab ride home and wakes up in her bed the next morning with no memory of how she got there. Fearing that she may be losing her mind, she visits her psychiatrist friend Michael Barnett. Barnett hypnotizes her, and in a trance she recalls the battle in the cave between Captain Marvel and Yon-Rogg during which she was Yon-Rogg's captive. The explosion of the Kree Psyche-Magnitron device kills Yon-Rogg and bathes Marvel and Carol in radiation, but Carol seems unaffected after a hospital stay. She returns to work, but can't regain the respect of her colleagues due to her failure to capture Marvel and quits soon after to begin a writing career. Six months after the accident, she experiences her first blackout and recalls transforming into Ms. Marvel.

Believing she's suffering from a paranoid delusion, Dr. Barnett wakes Carol up from the hypnosis and tells her it didn't work. But moments later, she collapses in his arms and he witnesses her transformation into the superheroine. Ms. Marvel flies out his window, her seventh sense having alerted her to the Scorpion, rampaging through the city, driven mad with the pain from the acid bath. She defeats him easily but is then immediately assaulted by Kerwin Korman. She takes a hit from his tachyon blast, but still manages to knock him unconscious before falling unconscious herself.
