However, on the taxi ride out, Thor's mad, cyborg-clone Ragnarok attacked the Initiative. Gorilla Girl at first tried to help protesters who were trying to flee, but then realized she was just causing more chaos, so she joined the fight, just in time to rescue Trauma. However, after doing this Ragnarok knocked her aside and tried to kill her, but the New Warriors intervened.
