8 Captain Marvel Theories So Crazy They Might Be True
If the Secret Invasion storyline is involved in the Captain Marvel movie, we might get a very different version of Carol Danvers than everyone is expecting!
Captain Marvel is one of the most powerful characters on the Avengers’ roster and it’s just about perfect that she shows up right on time for the apocalyptic spectacle of the fourth Avengers film. Our heroes will need all the help they can get, especially when considering the fact that half of all life (and seemingly more than half of the good guys) has been vaporized by the snap of Thanos’ fingers. We gotta hope her pager has a good connection wherever she is in the galaxy so she can respond to Nick Fury’s message and bring the gang back together. With a history that extends back to the 1960’s, Captain Marvel’s current alter ego, Carol Danvers, has been through a lot – so there’s a ton of material for the MCU to refer to when creating her 1990’s-set spinoff film.
As Captain Marvel, Danvers has explored alternate timelines, fended off Skrull invasions of Earth and fought in a Secret War, participated in various storylines like Operation: Lightning Storm, used her mighty blasts to help the battle against Thanos, and risen through the ranks to lead the Avengers herself. Granted her powers thanks to her early interactions with Mar-vell (the being who originally held the mantle of Captain Marvel), she started out as a less powerful heroine named Ms. Marvel. However, she’s survived in the comics over the decades thanks to her resilience and mass appeal.
