Higher. Further. Faster. More.

Have you ever taken off running so fast that it felt like you were flying? Have you ever looked at the stars and knew you belonged among them? If you answered “yes”, you and Carol Danvers might be BFFs. From a small girl with big dreams to being a leader of the Avengers, Captain Marvel has solidified her place in Marvel comics and is now soaring into the MCU.

Over the years she’s gone by a number of codenames- Ms. Marvel, Warbird, Binary, and now, Captain Marvel.  The seventh character to take on the mantle, Carol brings a new life to the name with her relentless bravery, wicked sense of humor, and good heart.  She’s a natural born leader whose strength and stubbornness make her a formidable foe.

From a fearless reinvention by Kelly Sue DeConnick, to an epic costume upgrade from Jamie McKelvie, to an empowering update to her backstory by Margaret Stohl, many incredible comics creators have had a hand in shaping Carol’s latest adventures both in space and planetside.  Captain Marvel’s been everywhere from the Avengers to Alpha Flight to her very own Carol Corps; in just seven short years since the debut of her newest codename, Carol Danvers has pushed the boundaries of Marvel comics at every turn.

As fans can see in her comic stories and in her upcoming movie, the strength of Captain Marvel, both in her power and her character, are undeniably the heart of the modern Marvel Universe. We can’t wait to see where the stars take her.
