    She was so powerful that she managed to get a silmaril just with the help of a man and a dog. I don't think she could have killed Morgoth on the spot, but what about with the help of an army and Melian?

    By the end of Morgoth's rein, it took an entire army and the destruction of Beleriand to do it so I really doubt that she'd have been able to take him out.
