Higher, Further, Faster!

On 14th June, we saw the end of an historic era for Earth’s Mightiest Hero. As Kelly Thompson’s run of Captain Marvel ended in Captain Marvel #50, fans were left wondering what could be next for Carol Danvers? Well, she’s currently leading the Avengers in their battle for the planet, and she has her own limited series coming in July. But on top of all that, Captain Marvel will be back in October with an all-new ongoing series.

There’s a new threat in town. One that’s realised that Carol Danvers, with her ability to harness the energy of the sun, might be able to stop its vision of total annihilation. So what’s a malevolent cosmic entity to do? Well, in this case, it traps Captain Marvel and keeps her out of the fight. Carol will have to rely on the help of a young friend who might just hold the key to success.

Not only will Carol Danvers be thrown into a thrilling new adventure, but she has a new look to go with it. Jen Bartel has created a sleeker version of Captain Marvel’s costume, after the praise for her Hellfire Gala design for Carol. Check out the cover for the first issue of the new series as well as the costume designs by Bartel.
