COMICS: The New CAPTAIN MARVEL Will Be...MS MARVEL?
Earlier today we posted a teaser heralding the return of Captain Marvel to the MU in July. But fans of Mar-Vell - the character last seen back in 2010 and the last to don the star and mantle of Captain Marvel - may be in for a disappointment, as Bleeding Cool report the following..
It seems that Mar-Vell won't be resurrected for Marvel's new Captain Marvel comic coming in July, instead Carol Danvers will be taking up the mantle! We also have word on who will be writing the series..
I”m told that this time, it’s Carol Danvers, Ms Marvel’s turn, in a new costume with a new name, and one that might be a little more user friendly for the fanboys. Coming from Marvel in July and written by Marvel rising star Kelly Sue DeConnick.
DeConnick, wife of Matt Fraction, has written for Oni Press, Image Comics and has worked on a few one shots and mini-series for Marvel. We had been told that we would have to wait until Wondercon this weekend to find out the details on all of this, so many thanks to Bleeding Cool's powers of scoopage. Ms Marvel's previous comic was cancelled a while back, and since that Marvel have been without a solo female comic series. I know from the last article that many of you were looking forward to Mar-Vell's triumphant return so how does this news go over with ya?
