|Captain Marvel Survives Secret Wars!
Well, of course she does. Marvel has gained quite a following from Kelly Sue DeConnick's revitalization of the character. Thanks to her stellar work, Carol Danvers has gone from fits and starts in the Marvel Universe to starring in a movie.
But DeConnick is leaving... to be replaced by a pair of dynamite writers. Agent Carter executive producers and showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.
What gives me even more hope, besides Agent Carter being a great show? Reach back earlier -- they created the great, but sadly unappreciated, Reaper for the CW, before also going on to work on Dollhouse for Fox. They've got a track record of doing good, quirky work.
So while you've got them, Marvel, maybe you could do a mini-series allowing them to finish up Reaper? Just asking...
New mission, same attitude. Suit up and strap in True Believer, because Carol Danvers is dialing it up a notch. Calling all Carol Corps members! Marvel is pleased to announce CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 – a brand new ongoing series launching later this year! Marvel’s Agent Carter Executive Producers and Showrunners Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters make the jump to Marvel Comics to pen the explosive adventures of Earth’s Mightiest Hero alongside rising star artist Kris Anka (Uncanny X-Men)!
“We are thrilled to have Michelle and Tara onboard for Captain Marvel’s next adventure,” says Marvel Director of Character & Content Development and Series Editor Sana Amanat. “They are powerhouse storytellers who will take Carol to even further heights as she explores what’s beyond Earth’s borders. Carol Corps, stay at the ready, it’s going to be one wild ride!”
Carol’s been from one end of the universe to the other, and through her journey she’s discovered the hero and the leader she was born to be. Now she’s back – and if you want to get to Earth, you’ve got to get through Captain Marvel first! That’s right, Earth’s highest flying, hardest punching heroine is the planet’s first line of defense against any and all extraterrestrial threats. With an entire fleet and a state of the art Space Station at her command, if you come here looking for trouble, you won’t know what hit you! But when an abandoned ghost ship appears in our galaxy carrying mysterious cargo – does it spell doom for everything Carol’s built for herself?
Hero. Pilot. Avenger. Leader. The next evolution of Carol Danvers begins this fall as she blasts off once again in CAPTAIN MARVEL #1!
