Cavorite is a man-made element used to channel and amplify energy of various sorts. Carol Danvers had participated in experiments on the substance during her early days at NASA, where they found that the right balances of energy could make an anti-gravity system, or even power a faster-than-light engine.
Further experiments on the substance drew the subterranean warlord Grotesk to the surface world. He claimed a crystal of it and tried to channel its energies through a warp generator. Ms. Marvel's interference caused the crystal to explode, pushing Grotesk into another dimension. 
The Super-Skrull found a piece of Cavorite hidden inside a clay statue during a battle with Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man. An opportune channeling of electrical power through the crystal teleported the Super-Skrull to a random location off-world. Ms. Marvel retrieved the crystal, and its residual energies broke through a set of mental blocks that had been separating her Ms. Marvel personality from her Carol Danvers personality. 
After various experiments confirmed Cavorite's high-explosive capabilities, the bulk of the US Military's sources were moved to storage at McCord Army Base, near Spaulding, Georgia.
A conflict between the alien Brood and the creature Cru led both to crash-land on the town of Spaulding. Ms. Marvel, seeing the crashing Brood ship as it passed over New York, gave chase and exterminated the Brood, but not before learning that they had pointed Cru at the nearby Cavorite, hoping that it would explode and destroy the creature... along with half of the planet. 
Cru managed to secure a large crystal, and the resulting explosion destroyed McCord Army Base and Spaulding, but also ejected Cru, Ms. Marvel, and over a hundred other Cavorite crystals into space. Ms. Marvel over-amped the one crystal that Cru had installed in his weaponry,successfully discorporating the creature. 
- Cavorite is a fictitious element found in many comic book and science fiction stories. It was first used in the H.G. Wells novel, The First Men in the Moon.
