Captain Marvel has returned! But I don’t think you’ll recognize him, or her, because an unmasked and clean cut Ms. Marvel has appeared in his place. The costume may be the same, but the attitude has changed.
Carol Danvers is in a position of struggle. Her new status as Captain Marvel has come at an interesting crossroads in her life. Her good friend Captain America would like to see her accept the Captain Marvel name, but she seems uncertain if she wants, or is worthy, of carrying it. Captain Marvel #1 touches on all spectrums of Carol’s life, not only her personal and professional life, but also her past, and what makes her the woman she is today. Explore Carol’s mind and find out if she grasps the reigns as “the” Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel #1 is a special read. A majority of the book is spent sifting through Carol Danvers’ wise and complex thought processes. A complexity only Captain Marvel’s woman writer, Kelly Sue DeConnick could think up. Take this opportunity boys, see into the mind of a woman, be it said though, Ms. Marvel is quite stable and much more reasonable than most woman. The art of Dexter Soy is really enjoyable. It’s real, not flashy, and makes Carol look stronger than ever on each page. It’s a bold art style that caters perfectly to the atmosphere of the book.
A strong showing for the first issue of Captain Marvel. It has some action, some history, and whole lotta Ms. Marvel. Pick up Captain Marvel #1 so you can see how this event all began. But riddle me this one question, how does her hair grow back so quick? Weaves? Extensions? Think about it.
