Synopsis for "Shadow of the Gun!"
After having a premonition of battling to the death, Carol Danvers is more stressed out than usual, prompting her co-workers to try and come up with something to cheer her up.
Meanwhile, Mystique and Geoffrey Ballard manage to get aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier when Mystique disguises herself as Nick Fury to gain access to the Centurion Project, a top secret weapon which they hope to use to further their own goals. After almost being found out by Valentina de Fontaine, they manage to escape.
Meanwhile, Carol is "assaulted" by her co-workers who have initiated a snowball fight to try and cheer her up. After a brief romantic kiss with Frank Gianelli, Carol pushes him away because she is soaking wet and wants a change of clothes. So she changed into Ms. Marvel and flies home, but she is blasted out of the sky by an unseen assailant.
