, assisting him in the takeover of Titan. She acts as its lieutenant and aids in the conquest of Titan. After she fell in love with Mar-Vell
she aided him, Drax
and Rick Jones
in opposing ISAAC. She later joined Mar-Vell and Rick Jones on their trip back to Earth. She then accompanied Mar-Vell to visit Rick in Denver. In order to look for Mar-Vell and the Hulk
, she accompanied Bettty Ross Banner
, Rick Jones and Fred Sloan in Gamma Base. As Mar-Vell discovered his cancer and realized that he was dying, he confronted Elysius and reminisced with her their memories together as Mentor
watches them nearby. During Mar-Vell's last minutes, Elysius was among those other Marvel Heroes that watched him before he completely died. Having been so close to Elysius, Mar-Vell asked his friend Star-Fox to care for Elysius after his death and make sure she was okay. Elysius herself released Star-Fox from this obligation.
But she used ISAAC to sample his DNA and used it to help create her a son that Starfox
helped to care for in the absence of a father. Mentor advised however that this child would be vulnerable to attack from Mar-Vell's enemies, so this child was then aged artificially and implanted memories of a childhood. The time came to tell her son, Genis-Vell
, the truth about his father. She had some Nega Bands
created, modeled after Mar-Vell's for him, and gave him the choice. He accepted and became the new Captain Marvel. She remained on Titan after Starfox's
departure to join the Avengers
