Usagi Yojimbo, Rocksteady and Bebop

This year's San Diego Comic-Con may not have felt as over-stuffed as years passed, but that didn't mean the convention floor wasn't still jam-packed with incredible cosplay. The annual event is still home to some of the biggest and brightest cosplayers in the 'verse, and we were reminded just how talented and creative comic book fans can be when roaming the show floor this year. We managed to track down some fantastic highlights on Saturday, and captured them for all of you to witness here.

Introduced in 1968, there a few women in comics with such a storied history of strength and determinaton as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. Carol is a character who works hard at building the brightest possible tomorrow and the best version of herself. It's precisely that kind of attitude that inspired Kamala Khan, the young hero from Jersey City, to adopt the Ms. Marvel codename when she came into powers of her own.

No matter whether they’re taking on the mantle of Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel, these cosplayers bring the best of the hero to the surface on the convention floor. These are the best Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel cosplays.

The Replacements: Mar-Vell And The Legacy Of Captain Marvel


Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

Mar-Vell of the Kree came to Earth as a spy but fell in love with the people and culture and instead swore to defend it to his dying day. In the aftermath of his death the title of Captain Marvel became one the most prestigious in the Marvel Universe, and this week we look back at the men, women and aliens who have proudly carried his name.

Kamala Decides Whether to Side with Her Hero in ‘Ms. Marvel’ #8 [Preview]


Kamala Khan is going to have to take sides in Civil War II. In fact, I keep hearing that everyone is. The crossover is coming to Ms. Marvel's doorstep with issue #8 of her current series. The "Civil War Reenactiment" variant cover pretty clearly positions her as the Spider-Man of this version (meaning the initially naive character who switches sides), although the scene of her unmasking is presumably just a reference to that, and not something that will happen this time around.

Carol Takes (Alpha) Flight in ‘Captain Marvel’ #1 [Review]


Let's be real about something for a second: This is the third Captain Marvel #1 in 3.5 years (fourth if you count Secret Wars: Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps), and that can feel a little tiring. Especially from Marvel Comics, in this current strange period of comics publishing. I love Captain Marvel, and even I felt a little cynical about yet another relaunch.

But at the same time, it was impossible not be excited about a Captain Marvel written by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, the showrunners on my favorite Marvel TV show, Agent Carter, and drawn by Kris Anka, who became one of my very favorite superhero artists during his time on Uncanny X-Men.

Sideshow’s Captain Marvel Statue Stands Ready to Save the Galaxy

Carol Danvers is poised to have a big year. Captain Marvel might not be getting a movie in 2016 like so many of her Marvel counterparts, but she's got a great ongoing series and will play a major role in the upcoming Civil War II comic event. While she's had a few action figures over the course of the last year, the Avenger hasn't gotten the high gloss treatment befitting the hero that defends Earth and space. I don't know you if you know this, but space, it's infinite. Takes a special kind of person to say, "We must protect this house!" when that house is as vast and wide as every galaxy in the known universe.

This year, Sideshow is giving the Captain her due with a new premium format figure. She might look a little different than you're used to seeing though. The statue puts her recently tweaked costume through a few more alterations, adding a bit more star flare and giving that sash an interesting new direction. She's still got that bad-ass attitude and some on-point eyeliner though. Seriously, Carol looks more than ready to take on the world, she looks ready to take on the universe. Which, as I said before, is a good thing because the universe is magnificent and cold and needs someone like Captain Marvel to keep it together.
