Carol Danvers is back as iconic Captain Marvel in The Mighty Captain Marvel #1. She’s dealing with the fallout of Civil War II as well as a few other distractions.

For those new to the Captain Marvel story, here’s an introduction from the comic: “No challenge is too great for the former Air Force pilot turned superhero. Carol Danvers has come a long way since an incident with alien technology left her with amazing powers. Part-Kree, part human, Carol is now the most powerful and popular superhero on Earth.”
You’ll want to get to know Captain Marvel ahead of the upcoming movie starring Brie Larson in the titular role. The Captain Marvel film, slated for Summer 2018, will mark the first female-led film in the Marvel Cinematic universe. Longtime fans will recall Carol Danvers as the part alien Ms. Marvel, and while her look might change over the years, one thing remains absolute: Captain Marvel can kick some major butt.
In The Mighty Captain Marvel #1, Danvers has to deal with everything from a cheesy television show bringing her story to life to an attack on the Black Forest Refugee Camp, in which a Kree child is taken hostage. This is part one of a four-part “Alien Nation” story arc that introduces us to Danvers post Civil War II.
Writer Margaret Stohl penned a note to the loyal #CarolCorps thanking them for supporting her efforts with her first full-length comic. She said that fans have already contacted her to share their opinions and ideas about Carol Danvers, and Stohl asks that fans “give Carol, my Carol, a fresh read and an open mind.” This new Carol Danvers story is a celebration of the Women of Marvel, and she appropriately closes her letter encouraging girls who love comics to “get going” and “get busy” so she can enjoy their stories some day.
The Mighty Captain Marvel #1 is available now.
