Carol Danvers Gets A Haircut, Punches Asteroids In ‘Captain Marvel’ #1 [Preview]
January 20th sees the return of the one true Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers, to a solo title. The book is written by Agent Carter showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, with art by Kris Anka (Uncanny X-Men). After a series about her adventures on Earth, followed by a series about her adventures in deep space, this third volume of Captain Marvel finds Carol in orbit. She's leading a new version of Alpha Flight, which seems to be replacing SWORD as Earth's first defense against alien attacks.
We don't see the team in this preview, but we do see Abigail Brand, sporting some questionable sunglasses and one of those amazing Kris Anka sneers.
Here's Marvel's official take:
Strap in, suit up and take flight True Believer! The Captain is back and she is dialing it up a notch. Today Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 – the high-flying new ongoing series! Calling all Carol Corps members! Marvel’s Agent Carter Executive Producers and Showrunners Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters make the jump to Marvel Comics to pen the explosive adventures of Carol Danvers alongside fan-favorite artist Kris Anka (Uncanny X-Men)!
It’s a bold new frontier for Earth’s Mightiest Hero as she soars to new heights on her most daring mission yet – head of the all-new Alpha Flight space program. As Earth’s first line of defense, Carol and Alpha Flight protect the planet from any and all threats the deep void of space can throw at them. With a space station and an entire fleet at her command, if you come here looking for trouble, you won’t know what hit you! But is Carol ready to be a soldier and a diplomat at the same time? Especially when an unknown enemy emerges she can’t quite punch.
