Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Carol Danvers brings Mike Barnett to her parents’ home in Boston, Massachusetts. While there, Carol recalls the end of her last battle, when, after defeating the Elementals, she turned her fury and grief-driven rage onto Hecate. But when Hecate pointed out that Carol was lifting a multi-ton boulder, Carol was forced to accept that Ms. Marvel’s persona was really not separate from her own. Overjoyed and feeling sane for the first time since she first transformed into Ms. Marvel, Carol thanked Hecate for helping her and felt ready to resume her life.

That night, Carol and Mike Barnett attend an Indian Summer Ball aboard the U.S.S. Constitution. Carol meets an old astronaut friend, Tom Boardman, but before they can discuss much more than the recent death of Salia Petrie, they hear the general quarters klaxon coming from the nearby nuclear aircraft carrier U.S.S. Halsey. Moments later, the huge carrier is rocked by an explosion, and everyone jumps into action. Carol turns into Ms. Marvel and flies to the Halsey, where she encounters two robotic beings, one large and bulky, the other human-sized and golden-colored, that coordinate their attack on her. The big one, named Sapper, is able to drain the life-force from Ms. Marvel and then fire the energy back at her in a force bolt, knocking her across the harbor. She counterattacks, but anything she does just provides Sapper with more energy to absorb.

She leaves Sapper momentarily stunned on the Halsey and returns to the Constitution, where she succeeds in breaking off the golden warrior’s hand at the wrist, revealing electronic circuitry. The creature claims to be a robot in body, but with a mind and soul as human as Ms. Marvel’s own. Sapper, having absorbed the energy on the Halsey and filled with more power than ever before, rejoins his comrade, but the golden warrior halts the battle due to his injury and they depart, leaving Ms. Marvel to wonder who they were and when they’ll turn up again.
