Captain Marvel – Is She Enough?

Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.

We know that this movie takes place in the 90s. We know that Nick Fury has two eyes, but what don’t we know?

Did you know that she was once upon a time called Ms. Marvel? Her predecessor was called Captain Marvel and she fought alongside the Avengers. Remember Rogue from The X-Men? Well did you know that she got her powers from Ms. Marvel? Rogue had the ability to siphon other people’s energy and powers. Rogue was misguided and had teamed with some bad people and when helping them with a job, Ms. Marvel intervened. Rogue was tasked with distraction and grabbed Marvel and siphoned her powers.

Well she ended up hanging on a little too long and put Ms. Marvel into a coma, and gained the abilities that once belonged to Ms. Marvel. I always thought that was a neat origin. This movie will probably not delve into that story at all and will focus mostly in space. I wonder how much retroactive continuity (retcon) will take place in order to fit her into the story? Either way, the hype train is officially rolling and I am fully on board.
