Captain Marvel is no less than the most powerful member of
the Avengers and the biggest MCU superheroine of all times. In the comics she
can fly, has supernatural endurance and speed, and can shoot blasts of energy
from her hands.
The origin story of Captain Marvel is not exactly uncomplicated,
given that there are seven different versions of the Marvel character. The
original story was adapted for the purpose of the film, and appears in the
fourth edition of the Life of Captain Marvel. ‘The true tale of Carol Danvers
and her journey to becoming Captain Marvel begins years ago, on a star-filled
night in a sleepy town. A night that no one knew would change the world …’
From Pilot to Captain Marvel
Before she becomes the heroine Captain Marvel in the comics, Carol
Danvers is a talented pilot in the US Air Force. Her career leads her to the
CIA and she finally becomes the director of security for NASA at Cape
Canaveral. There she encounters the Kree for the first time whilst on a mission.
In an explosion, she comes into contact with the genetic material of Captain
Marvel. The DNA belonging to a member of the extraterrestrial Kree fuses with
her own and endows her with unimagined superpowers. She then decides to use her
newly-acquired power for the good of mankind.
The Captain Marvel film
A soldier trained by the Kree (Brie Larson) falls to Earth after
an intergalactic battle. One moment she was fighting with an elite Starforce
unit in space, and the next she finds herself alone on an alien planet.
However, something about the Earth feels familiar to her and the visions and
dreams she’s been having make her feel like there’s a connection. She works
together with the young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury to try to unravel this
mystery and clarify her questions about her origins. In the process she finds
out that her name used to be Carol Danvers, and that she was born on Earth.
However, she doesn’t have long to get used to her new knowledge, as her
newly-found home planet is infiltrated by the enemy Kree, and it’s her duty to
Powerful. Superhuman. Captain Marvel
Whether in the comics or the film universe, Captain Marvel is among the most powerful superheroes. She can fly, has superhuman strength and can fire energy blasts from her hands. What’s more, she has the ability to survive in space and thanks to her Kree DNA she is also immune to most poisons and illnesses.
Captain Marvel can also absorb energy, which makes her a particularly formidable opponent. This allows her to increase her own power and also to create a white hole and use its energy. Due to her time in the Air Force, Carol Danvers is also a sharp shooter and excellent spy. You might have guessed by now that you’re looking at the perfect support for the Avengers. There’s still a while to wait before she enters the fray with the others
against Thanos, though, and how better to use it than to kit yourself out with
fan merchandise from this extraordinary superhero.
