Ms. Marvel #5 (1977)

First off, we get a full origin story.  Carol Danvers got hit by a blast of Kree radiation way back when she was just a side character in the Captain Marvel comic.  The side effects lay dormant until her shrink hypnotized her and she transformed like Shazam into Ms. Marvel.  We also learn that her costume gives her some of her power, due to “sophisticated electronic webbing.”

Then, we get a Vision guest spot and an appearance from my favorite villain….MODOK!

Yes!  Modok is set up to be her main villain!
