The Runaways didn?t have too much time to mourn though, as Molly and her teammates joined forces with the Young Avengers during the Super Hero Civil War to take out the Warden of the Cube, a floating prison. And while the Runaways fought a giant monster, Chase found himself obsessed with striking a deal with the Gibborim to bring Gert back in exchange for an innocent soul. Around this time, Molly started hearing a disembodied voice guiding her to stop Chase?s plan. When these events all culminated in a final battle, the mystical Gibborim were sent strange white void alongside the Alex Wilder, who revealed that he?d been the voice talking to Molly.
After returning to the reality of Earth, the group?s next adventure took them back to New York City where they ran into Kingpin and the Punisher. During a brief scuffle, Molly socked Castle in the stomach so hard he almost passed out, giving them enough time to install a new component into Leapfrog, inadvertently turning it into a time machine that sent them back to the year 1907. There, they did their best to blend in with a group of super powered folks that called themselves Wonders.
Molly and Karolina then split off to find a young girl named Klara who had the super ability to make plants grow. And though Klara wasn?t exactly ready to meet these time travelers, Klara decided to join the crew as a means to escape her abusive husband, and the kids brought her back to present day.
Before returning to the West Coast, the kids hung around the Big Apple a little longer, which put them in the right place to work with the Young Avengers once again in their face-off against the Skrulls during the aliens? Secret Invasion. Despite wanting to be involved, one of the young Super Heroes dropped Molly and Klara off near Mount Rushmore to keep them out of the fray.
Upon returning to California, the kids decided to bunk out in the Steins? Malibu house. While there, they dealt with irate Majesdanians, Nico?s wonky spells, nosy neighbors, and general roommate drama that led Molly and Klara to set up a quiet fort near the beach. After Xavin took Karolina?s place and left with the Majesdanians, the group went on a camping trip. On their way back, they heard about an army of plastic surgery monsters controlled by Chase?s boss.
From there, the Runaways traveled to San Francisco in response to Scott Summers? mental broadcast that any and all mutants would be welcomed at the X-Men?s new headquarters. And while Wolverine showed Hayes around, the Runaways ran into a group of young X-Men. Instead of fighting, they made fast friends and went to a club while Logan and Molly got ambushed by a guy looking to take her out because of the sins of her parents. Throughout this ordeal, Molly was faced with the truth about how bad her parents really were, but Wolverine reminded her that no matter how bad they might?ve been, they still loved her very much.
Upon returning to Malibu, the kids came under fire when a paramilitary group followed a downed drone to their house. In the initial explosion, Old Lace valiantly sacrificed herself to save Klara. With their house ruined, the Runaways did their thing once again and took off. While Chase looked for supplies, he happened upon a girl that reminded him of Gert before getting hit by a car when following her.
Chase eventually healed up, the kids got Old Lace back with the help of the Avengers Academy students, and they ran into Daken. During this time, Molly went out on her own a few times, getting a history lesson on the mutant Decimation from Hank McCoy and even applying to nanny Luke Cage and Jessica Jones? new baby daughter.
Later, when Arcade secretly kidnapped Chase and Nico, and dropped them in his new Murderworld alongside a number of other teen heroes, Molly was the only one who thought something was wrong. She even dragged Karolina to Avengers Academy to talk to Hank Pym to get him to start digging into the mystery, though Arcade had covered his tracks incredibly well. Chase and Nico finally escaped on their own, got locked up by S.H.I.E.L.D. in the process, but were eventually freed again.
After that, the Runaways fell apart. Nico walked away from the team, Victor joined the Avengers which led to his temporary death, Klara got taken away by the state, and Molly?s grandmother came for her. After Chase and Nico managed to bring Gert out of the past and save her life from Geoffrey Wilder?s stab wound, they found Victor Mancha?s severed robot head and met up with Karolina before going to visit Molly.
As it turned out, Molly was having a pretty awesome time at middle school and loved her life there.
