Ms. Marvel carries the attack to Hecate, recognizing her as the leader, and shrugs off the Elementalsí 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 theyíve 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 Hecateís power is almost the Skarabís 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 Hecateís and the Skarabís power bolts are triggering the Crystalís warp matrix, but rather than respond to Carolís inner pleadings that she fly to the shuttle to save Salia, she remains on the ground to save the Earth.

Magnumís megalomania leads him to defeat Hydron himself. Hecate, seeing Ms. Marvel sneaking up behind Magnum, pulls the image of NíKantu, the Living Mummy, from his mind. Terrified by the sudden appearance of his arch-nemesis, Magnum is unprepared for Ms. Marvelís 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.
