    Marvel's bizarre character assassination of Carol Danvers continues with this absolutely abysmal retcon of her origin story. What was that shit and who needed this to exist?! I feel like I've watched a particularly terrible episode of a daytime soap opera. As if Carol's personal story needed any more artificially added trauma and melodrama, she now also has Crippling Anxiety Attacks® and a history of Childhood Abuse™, something young adult writers seem to have a major hard-on for. I'm so tired o Marvel's bizarre character assassination of Carol Danvers continues with this absolutely abysmal retcon of her origin story. What was that shit and who needed this to exist?! I feel like I've watched a particularly terrible episode of a daytime soap opera. As if Carol's personal story needed any more artificially added trauma and melodrama, she now also has Crippling Anxiety Attacks® and a history of Childhood Abuse™️, something young adult writers seem to have a major hard-on for. I'm so tired of seeing these serious issues being almost fetishised in modern media and used so clumsily that it comes off as comical more than anything else. This is not what representation should look like! And don't even get me started on the whole villain thing in here, I felt actually getting dumber while reading this story. Y'know, I am by no means a fan of Kelly Thompson, but I can't imagine her run being any worse than this. And to think Marvel is putting out this crap right before the highly anticipated movie, this book has the potential to put thousands of people off reading comics ever again. Hey guys, want to read an actually good comic about Carol Danvers? Check out Kelly Sue DeConnick's run. Hey Marvel, want people to not hate your first female superhero to star in her own film? Stop publishing crap comics like this. Also, release a $75 omnibus of Kelly Sue's run already instead of reprinting those pointless Starlin comics about Mar-Vell that nobody will ever want to read.

The world buildilng, where do I even start. Yes there is a movie coming, yes Marvel is trying to distance Carol Danvers from Hal Jordan Green Lantern but wow this retcon of Carol’s origins is making things just so much worse. Carol has been a problem within Marvel for a while, her origins and her run as Ms. Marvel is iconic...like Hank Pym is iconic...that bad kind. Ever since Kelley Sue Deconnick has come in and made her kinda awesome again Marvel keeps trying to go back to her past and fixing things. We don’t need a change in the world we just need to step away from it and just let it go. This new world building retcon attempt is just terrible. It’s choked full of cliches and pieces of other character origins and stupid contrived melodrama to make your head spin. The world buliding sucks here cause it’s so half assed, it takes everything away from her and makes readers who know comic book compare her EVEN MORE to Hal. Where Hal overcame fear to become the Green Lantern, we have pretty much the opposite here, she’s undeserving of her renown and power because of the world buiding and the story here. Why is there a need to change Mum and her origin just to make her essentially MCU Star Lord, Aquaman and all the other mixed superheroes running around, what’s the problem with it being an accident like the Fantastic Four? There is absolutely no need to change that, what’s wrong with the Psych Magnatron? Stupidity. Story: Wow is this ever bad writing. The story is choppy, scene cuts between places and action lead nowhere, the town stuff with donut boy and then sudden alien thing and then past thing, this is so poorly constructed. Then you look at the pieces and it makes you even more annoyed, the really cheesy wah wah daddy was bad melodrama added here is so bad and takes a lot of the strength out of Carol as a character (more below) and how the entire romance was handled that was bad. Add to that the stuff with brother and also father oh man this book is so stupid and needless and in the end if this is the origin retcon story we are getting I don’t understand the need for it. What part of this story makes Carol a more interesting character or makes her more original? This is Green Lantern mashed with Days of Our Lives mixed with Aquaman and all manner of comic book cliches? What happens to mum in the end is also absolutely pointless? What purpose does it serve? Can she not have a family member to talk to? Instead of Mum not liking Hal joining the Airforce we have Dad...wow so original. This is just a bad sad excuse of a retcon that does nothing good and makes it worse. Characters: Wow that romance between Mum and Dad makes no sense, we have to at once think it’s the most beautiful romance star crossed story ever and also the worse domestic abuse story at the same time just so Stohl can make her terrible story work? Was there no editor at Marvel looking at this story? How was this approved for a hero that is about to get her own movie? How is this a good story? It makes no sense? Then there is the need to change the very nature of Carol and where she’s from and where her powers come from which is honestly pointless and serves no purpose. The half baked relationship with donut boy and the half assed relationship with the brother and the half assed relationship with Mum. What is this terrible book I’m reading with these terrible characters? Soap Opera’s have better characters.This book is a travesty and I am so glad that Stohl is off this book and off this character, her run has been terrible and this last cherry on top of a retcon makes her run truly without a doubt the weakest in the modern era.Onward to the next book!

    I have a confession that I hope Gabe never reads:Up until Miss Marvel (Kamala Khan) was released, I didn't know Miss Marvel and Captain Marvel were two different people. I thought the one just grew up to be the other and I only thought that after I found out Captain Marvel is a woman.Obviously, I know nothing about Captain Marvel, or didn't before I read this. Now I know her backstory, mostly. I expect the upcoming movie will finish filling me in.As a Marvel hero, Carol is ok, I guess.

I enjoyed looking at the pictures.

    This is a garbage fire from start to finish.It's so poorly written that it verges on incoherent. Much like Stohl's previous run on Captain Marvel, this book is painfully clunky, poorly-paced and heavy on the cringe. Every single character is bland and unlikeable.I've seen this story praised for showing Carol's 'humanity' and 'vulnerability', and certainly I think that's what Stohl is aiming for.

Much like Stohl's previous run on Captain Marvel, this book is painfully clunky, poorly-paced and heavy on the cringe. Every single character is bland and unlikeable.I've seen this story praised for showing Carol's 'humanity' and 'vulnerability', and certainly I think that's what Stohl is aiming for. But the emotional moments are almost all unearned, characters flailing around and screaming and crying and behaving irrationally for no other reason than that the story demands drama.A prime example is Carol's sudden onset of anxiety attacks, which are shoehorned into the story purely to (a) introduce a rather ugly and unnecessary retcon that turns her father from an emotionally distant parent who withheld his approval to a full-on abusive drunk, and (b) heighten the melodrama at key moments by, for instance, having Carol hyperventilate so hard she falls into a conveniently-placed lake and has to be saved from drowning.As somebody who actually does have anxiety, I can't decide whether I'm offended or just amused. It's a clumsily tone-deaf portrayal of mental illness that uses panic attacks as a vehicle for drama, but it's so idiotically over-the-top that it's almost funny.But the real crime is in what the book does to Carol's origin story.It's understandable, in light of the upcoming movie, that Marvel wanted to reconfigure Carol's backstory and de-emphasise the role of Mar-Vell in her origin. Previous writers, particularly Kelly-Sue Deconnick, have handled this quite effectively by shifting the emphasis of that original story, making it about Carol's courage and willpower and need to fight back being made manifest by a piece of Kree technology. Willpower, drive and ambition are a big theme with Carol.This story goes for a more hamfisted approach, moving Carol's origin away from Mar-Vell by shoehorning in a new legacy - one that spits on her personal drive. It turns her grit and perseverance into ~destiny~ and claims credit for all her ambitions. In trying to assert Carol as a hero in her own right, this story actually serves to stifle her independence and free will.

I expect many will not like it, but I'm not so much of a continuity cop as to object to a reset that I think makes Carol's origin more believable (all right I thought her original Ms. Marvel origin sucked).Is the threat posed reasonable, umm maybe. What Stohl makes worthwhile is the work put into making the reader care about Carol Danvers, her past, and her future. Or, at least this part of the story telling worked for me.

I tried to really think it over why but somehow it just didn't work with me. Compared to the previous four, it was too fast. It wanted a huge conclusion but it was too big with everything happening and things kind of fell apart instead of getting together. Somehow it lost all the weight it had.

It wanted a huge conclusion but it was too big with everything happening and things kind of fell apart instead of getting together. Somehow it lost all the weight it had. And believe me, I absolutely wanted to love this book from the beginning to the ending. I can't even say that it was a bad reading experience because it wasn't. I just can't say it was perfect either.However, there are many good parts of the book - to be exact the first four issues. The art is absolutely gorgeous and Carol is as beautiful and powerful and graceful as ever. The story building had a good pace, I loved the balance between the past we didn't know everything about and the present where we also had new discoveries.I also think this book is very important, besides a strong origin story for Carol, because it takes time to reflect on very real things we don't talk enough about: how an abusive and drunk parent affects the whole family; what it is like to grow up like this but never have any closure; what rage and anger can do to you if you don't acknowledge and treat it; how hard it is sometimes to talk to your loved ones, how terrifying it can be; how little things can shape you strongly; how hard being a parent is and even though you mean the best, sometimes you cause more damage than good. I saw that a lot of people disliked the book entirely, and I mean, we all are very different and I respect that if the book didn't work at all with someone. But I wanted to put it out there that even though there is definitely place for criticism, parts of this book are so damn important and I'm glad it got written, drawn, printed and released. Probably a lot of people disappointed because they expected a different kind of journey with Carol. More action packed, more space travel, more fight. Well, I will have this book with Carol's feelings and family and past and I'm sure Marvel will provide all the action in other comic books with her. I probably would recommend this book to people who are interested in Carol and like slower, less action-packed books. Plus, who are able to keep an open mind regarding Carol's "traditional" origin story.

After the events of her previous series, Carol retires to her hometown for some R&R, only to uncover some family secrets that turn her life upside down, especially when a Kree tracker arrives to hunt her down - or so she thinks. Each issue has a little flashback sequence by other artists, which gives this a very Valiant feel for me personally, and that might have been why I felt like this wasn't your typical Marvel comic.The retcons and new information regarding Carol and her family aren't going to have major implications, I don't think. This isn't a 'Tony Stark was adopted and now his mum's a supporting character' type deal. It's more subtle than that, in that you can almost ignore it unless it's referenced elsewhere, which does make the whole thing a tad redundant, but it's going to make for an easy trade for comic shops and new readers to grab if they're interested in Carol after her solo movie, which I expect is the actual point here.The artwork is mostly Carlos Pacheco who surprisingly manages to pencil all five issues bar the flashback sequences, while Marguerite Sauvage and Rafael Fonteriz handle those with more flighty and 'dreamlike' visuals. Pacheco's art is as always, although I've always wondered why he takes so long when he's kind of just pedestrian when compared to other artists that have been around as long as he has.The Life Of Captain Marvel is fine. It's not the huge game-changer it wants to be, but it's not a bad book, and is entirely fit for purpose. Not really the praise it was probably looking for, but that's what it's getting.

Partly this is so I'm not going to the comics shops every week (because I can never buy just one comic), but partly this is because I just prefer the trade format. I like being able to read a whole arc at once, and the trade format just feels more durable and "book-like".In this case, I was strongly tempted to make an exception.

My father and I had a very problematic relationship, and he just passed away last month. So I'm in the process of dealing with everything that means, and in adjusting my relationship with my mother. My own experience added a whole new level of meaning and richness to the story for me. And seeing Carol deal with some of the same issues I did, and adjusting her concept of herself along with all that, was a comfort.It's a great story. Surprising, exciting, and heartfelt. I loved the way they used different artists for present-day scenes and flashbacks to her earlier life. Strongly recommended!

    *Slightly spoilery*I feel a bit torn about this one. I always enjoy stories about the heroes that show their humanity - their insecurity, their fears, their weaknesses, that makes them more endearing to me. This was that story for Carol Danvers and painted a fascinating backstory of what makes Carol who she is, and by extension, what makes Captain Marvel who she is. It veered at one point away from what I was expecting and tethered her backstory and motivation to the legacy of her mother. It was *Slightly spoilery*I feel a bit torn about this one.

    Really refreshing for a comic to not have a woman's origin as a superhero be because of a man. Truly a great retcon. Hits on all the emotions, mainly sadness and pride for Carol. God I love this story. 4 stars instead of 5 because the villain is dull. It's not like a comic villain always has to be interesting, but it'll sure knock you down if she's not.

    Assez partagé sur cette mini série. Il y a de bonnes choses, comme la mise en avant de l'humanité de Carole, mais ce côté ordinaire laisse parfois place à quelques longueurs.Et quand le côté cosmique et héroïque revient en avant, c'est pour modifier en profondeur les origines du personnage avec un choix qui laisse... perplexe.
