Well, Marvel has gone and done it again!
Captain Marvel will be back come July in a different form.
We learned earlier that Ms. Marvel would be taking on the Captain Marvel title, and now Marvel has officially confirmed with news out of the WonderCon.
We see Carol in an all-new uniform, and the book comes to us in a new monthly by Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Dexter Soy.
So just how does Carol get the name?
Well, of course, she is hesitant and all, but it is Captain America who is the one to pass it on.
Carol has an incredible respect for Mar-Vell, as a person and as an icon. She is hesitant to take the name because of that. The line is something like, ”˜So much has been taken from him. I won't take his name.’ It's on Captain America to help her understand that Captain Marvel wasn't his name, it was his mantle. And he would have wanted her to have it.
As for the rest of the Marvel Universe, well, I expect the opinions probably vary person to person, but I imagine the overwhelming attitude would be one of, ”˜What took her so long?’
