Marvel has her champion!This TPB collects "Captain Marvel" #1-6.I bought this on its single comic books but I chose this TPB edition to make a better overall review.Creative Team:Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnickIllustrators: Dexter Soy & Emma RíosSHE IS CAPTAIN MARVELWhen I knew about this title, I got interested due that this new incarnation of Carol Danvers wasn't presented like the mightiest heroine, but, hero, period, wow!!!I think that it's finally the first step to get a female hero in Mar [...]
I was really expecting something awesome from this one, but it just didn't deliver. Maybe my expectations were too high?I felt like I'd already read the Carol Danvers Accepts Her Destiny story back in Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: Best of the Best. And, no. This wasn't the same story, butIt just didn't bring anything new to the table. Sorry.My second problem was the buttload of Grrrrl Power that got shoved down my throat. I mean, I shouldn't have a problem with it. Technically I'm a Grrrl.And yet.The whol [...]
“Is it Mrs or Miss Marvel?““It was Ms but now you can just call me Captain.”I always thought Ms Marvel/ Carol Danvers was one of the toughest heroes in the Marvel universe. You didn’t see Captain America or Iron Man fighting Skrulls while wearing a one piece bathing suit and thigh high boots, did you? I rest my case.After 35 years Marvel finally decided that it was time to give Carol some pants as well as a promotion. With a new outfit and name that honors the fallen Captain Marvel, Ca [...]
Unlike DC, Marvel has a lackluster history of comic titles featuring their female superheroes. The only one that comes to mind is the She-Hulk and that was basically played for fourth-wall-breaking laughs. “Hey, She-Hulk, jump rope naked or try to fit into a suit that’s 5 sizes too small for you. Go ahead. We’ll watch” Yuk-yuk. (Sigh) With a title now devoted to Captain Marvel, it would be nice if Marvel Comics is finally righting a collective wrong.This is a decent volume with a story c [...]
I really enjoyed this. Maybe it's my fascination with strong women characters, or perhaps I'm just a sucker for Captain Marvel. Either way, I love how she gets things done.This volume also had heart. No sappy romance or love interests involved. It was all about following your dreams, doing the right thing in the moral grey zone, and making the best of the hand you've been dealt, or not dealt because of a few men's stupid decisions.The time travel, the recap of her origin story, the buddy-buddy w [...]
I fully admit that my top reason for picking up this trade was that amazing cover. I absolutely love Carol's new look, and I love the style this cover (and the first four issues or so) was done in. It reminds me of WWII propaganda posters, which, considering the storyline, was almost certainly intentional as well as looking just amazing.So, the storyline. Carol has decided to drop the Ms. Marvel name and take on the Captain Marvel name. It is about time, let's be honest, but I really like the wa [...]
I don't really know squat about Carol Danvers. I mean, I see her in the Avengers and I've always kinda liked her - but I've never read a solo comic where she is front and center.This one got a lot of hype and heaps of praise when it was first released. I don't know why - I just never jumped on the bandwagon.Now, a couple years later, here I am.And ya know what? I really friggin liked it.The right tone, the right art, the right story and the right time. OR in the case of this volumee right times. [...]
WOW!! This was SO GOOD!I seem to have the worst luck choosing comics/graphic novels. They are either dry as dirt or confusing as hell. I've even wondered if maybe I'm not a comic book girl.And then I find comics like this one that makes me want to fist punch the air and scream, "Yessssss! I finally get it!"Carol Danvers is officially my favorite super heroine. She is tough, smart, and powerful - and yet she has female friends that she legitimately cares about (such as Tracy - don't know her spec [...]
I may have shot myself in the foot with this one by reading out of order, and then again, maybe I didn’t.Confusingly, Captain Marvel, Vol. 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More is not actually the first volume of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s run with Captain Marvel. This one is. And it’s in this volume that Carol Danvers, previously Ms. Marvel, swaps out her black leotard and thigh-highs for a sensible and badass red and blue costume and a blonde mohawk-type thing that sticks out of her red helmet, ta [...]
I was disappointed in this one. As the first volume in a new series about Carol Danvers taking on the mantle of Captain Marvel, I really didn't want the first story to be all about her gender. Yes, I get that it has to be addressed, but this story felt like it was hitting me over the head with the feminine angle. As a woman, I consider myself to be a feminist, albeit not a radical one, so I didn't really need to have it explained how women throughout history have been held back by a patriarchal [...]
I've already read issue 1 when it came out, but even re-reading it, I caught a chill a misted up when Carol announces "I'm taking the damned name." There's such a strength of purpose and drive that leaps off the page with this issue, it makes me want to reach harder and higher than I ever do in my life. Then the sharp, crisp dialogue between characters: so easy to imagine hearing these conversations, so compelling - I want to know these women, ride their coattails and want the excitement of just [...]
Please god, somebody tell Marvel to come up with a plot that doesn't involve time travel.
I’ve known about Captain Marvel and Carol Danvers for a while just through reading Avengers books, but I’ve never read a standalone piece featuring the character - and having read “In Pursuit of Flight” I’m in no hurry to pick up another! Not knowing much about the character beyond her powers and name might have made reading this that much harder to get into as there are characters in this book that aren’t introduced as the writer, Kelly Sue Deconnick, assumes you already know about [...]
I really liked this, more than I expected to. I'm working backward now, it seems. I started with the new Ms. Marvel about Kamala Khan. It finally seemed like a place where I could dip my toe into superhero comics without being so confused or overwhelmed with the history and changing timelines and universes and everything else that's been a barrier all of the times that I've tried to figure out where to start reading them. I've been reading graphic novels and comics for a few years, but just have [...]
Captain Marvel (aka Carol Danvers) takes a time traveling ride back to WWII and then the 1960's to meet her pilot mentor in her younger days.I definitely like Carol as Captain Marvel, one of the most interesting female heroes I've read. This was a nice look at the character and boosted my interest for the upcoming movie a bit. I liked her character and dialogue here, but it didn't feel like a great place to jump into her story. Probably because it wasn't really about her so much as her mentor. I [...]
OMGWTF THEY CHANGED MS MARVEL'S COSTUME AND SHE'S NOT EVEN MS MARVEL ANYMORE WHYYYYYYYYY???????Here's why: Because Kelly Sue DeConnick kicks everyone's ass.Change isn't always bad. Come on Marvel readers, think about it. There really is no better contender for the Captain Marvel mantle than Carol Danvers. And in this title, she is every bit as awesome and complex as she's ever been. She continues to be the strong and sarcastic leader and protector, yet still struggling to find her footing as bot [...]
I wanted to like this and may read on to see if it creates a story I can engage in but. . . not yet. It's colorful and my kids liked it okay. It skips back story to jus get into it, which I guess makes sense as an artistic choice. . . that's the problem with rebooting. Back story slows things down. However, I don't know much about Carol Danvers, the Captain, or this world, and this just felt like a shoot-em-up comic with girls as shooters. I liked the art work, colorful, solid, by Soy, but I thi [...]
Someday I'll read a comic book that can manage a linear story and no time travel. I'M NOT BITTER.The art and characters were grand, though. So yeah.
2 Stars.''Time travel, Helen. Yes I know. No one likes it, but we're here now.''Sometimes you read something and you go all fangirl/fanboy on it. Sometimes you read something and you liked it but there's that one detail that bothers you and you have to fully explain it so people can understand why you didn't love it. Sometimes you read something and you hate it with all your guts and you have to rant because it was an useless and pointless experience and such a waste of time (I've been there too [...]
I have so many feelings about this graphic novel, I cannot even adequately put them into words. For starters it's like Kelly Sue knew exactly what my buttons were, and then mashed them all down repeatedly. Where to start? How about with the fact that Carol Danvers left the Air Force as a full bird colonel making her solidly at least 40 years old. Yep, that's right, this badass super hero, with powers galore, is a fully matured, adult woman, basically starting her second career in life (as a supe [...]
Hmmlet's seeI like the WWII-era propaganda poster-style artwork covers.I like the female hero being an ass-kicker, I like Captain America showing up and I like Spider-Man's humour. Not so good: WAYY too much time travel/warp stuff.Nice to see the WWII era female team and the 60s era female pilots, but it's a little ridiculous to think the 60s ones were dressed more modestly than the WWII ones, who look ridiculous.Art-wise I like the Dexter Soy issues (1-4) better than the (5-6) Emma Rios issues, [...]
I think I'm completely new to Captain Marvel -- I've heard bits about her, and about the original Mar-Vell, but I haven't read a comic featuring Carol Danvers yet as far as I can remember. If I have, and I've forgotten, shame on me, but this makes for a great introduction: I fell right in love with the character. She's unabashedly completely kickass, she's gorgeous (the art is gorgeous, though I preferred Dexter Soy's work to Emma Rios'), she cares, and I don't think she knows how to give up.I l [...]
I really wanted to like this one. I really like Carol's personality and I think I liked her back story, but it was hard to follow. This assumes you know Carol's history, it isn't kind to newcomers. The art is ok, I don't think the portrayal of women is too over the top except for one character. (view spoiler)[If you have a female character who is serving in the armed forces during WWII, don't put her in a white crop tank top and super low rise army pants! I found that disrespectful (hide spoiler [...]
Captain Marvel is awesome! I decided I better learn more about the superheroes from the upcoming movies, and this one looks very promising! I am loving the female leads, how witty and sassy it is and how unexpectedly sad it was! I want to read more asap! This has definitely made me excited for the movie.
3.5 stars I liked the artwork in the first part of the comic, but after that it was hard to see who was who. Still, I really enjoyed the story and it was nice to finally meet Captain Marvel (after the Miss Marvel-comics).
I was pretty excited to read Captain Marvel Vol. 1: In Pursuit of Flight because I don't know. Reasons? One of them being that Captain Marvel has a legitimate costume that is not a bikini and go-go boots, which seems to be the standard uniform for lady superheroes (unless you are Wonder Woman, and then you get a one-piece and go-go boots). Plus, I love seeing ladies kick butt in comics, alien or human or whatever weird combo of the two you've got going on.One of the main problems with In Pursui [...]
This book collects the first six issues of the new Captain Marvel series starring Carol Danvers formerly Miss Marvel in the title role. This title was originally held by the male Kree Warrior Mar-vel. The book is not bad, but it suffers from an affliction common to similar female productions: a sense of its own self-importance.This is on full display in Issue 1 when the name change is the centerpiece of the whole issue. And Captain America, the First Avengers pushes her to do the change of title [...]
After reading other reviews, it seems like most people thought pretty highly of this book. I, on the other hand, was not blown away by any means. It was a fair story at best, and even the inclusion of a sci-fi element I like (time travel) couldn't make this intriguing. I still have questions about what happened in the story (like how did the Banshee Squad experience the time travel whiteness if they were never traveling through time or in the magic airplane?), but I honestly have no interest in [...]
Absolutely refreshing. I love comics, but occasionally the ingrained sexism starts to grate (some authors are better about it than others, but it's hard to avoid if you want to expand beyond a few titles, especially if you want to read everything about a long-running character). This reboot of Captain (previously Ms.) Marvel, then, is like entering a much-longed-for alternate universe, where the main characters are all incredible, accomplished, nuanced women and the male characters appear only b [...]
Spoilers ahead. What mainly interested me about this book is hearing that Katee Sackhoff was supposedly going to be starring as Captain Marvel in a movie soon. I hadn't heard that they'd switched Captain Marvel around, but I thought it was cool to give a different gender spin on the character. The result wasn't that astounding, in my opinion. The art was okay (for the first 4 or whatever issues) but the sort of paint-brushy delivery just didn't lend itself very well to the action. Also, there wa [...]
