For a while, all we knew about the rebooted Marvel comics universe was that Captain Marvel would be there. Now we know that the showrunners who brought us the fantastic Agent Carter will be writing Carol Danvers' story. Fast Company has a first look at the character's redesign. Here she is, sporting a close-cropped 'do that reflects her history in the military. Can I get an amen?
"This is really meant to be the next level for Captain Marvel," says series editor Sana Amanat. "Carol is really meant to be a soldier and a commander, and also a diplomat. We're really trying to build up this space complex and this space world. You'll really feel like there's an extension of the Avengers world into space, but not necessarily lost out in the Guardians of the Galaxy cosmos. It's rooted in Earth but also an extension into the galaxy."
These new hints sound life fantastic news for the Captain Marvel comics. After everthing these writers did on Agent Carter, I'm glad they'll be working on this as well. Carol and Peggy are both similar: they have a military background, they're conflicted about what it is they're fighting for and don't always fit in. Maybe this will help bring tv audiences back to the comics?
