Marvel's Captain Marvel is coming back

DC’s Captain Marvel may be gone, but Marvel’s is coming back, as per the above teaser. Details will be revealed at the Tom Brevoort panel at WonderCon on the 15th.

Captain Marvel’s last re-appearance (in Civil War) was similarly teased, Graeme McMillan reminds us.

Captain Marvel is currently planned to get involved in that AvX hoo-hah. Multiversity has the most expansive speculation, including the idea that Rick Remender will be involved.


  1. MBunge says:

    “Captain Marvel’s last re-appearance (in Cival War)”

    What ever came of that?


  2. Scratchie says:

    It changed everything?

  3. “What ever came of that?”

    I believe he turned out to be a brainwashed Skrull who really thought he was Captain Marvel and, thus, died fighting against the Skrull. Not the Skrulls’ best plan, obviously.

  4. I had it pretty close:

  5. Dennis V. says:

    If he’s coming back I hope it’s the real deal and not the Skrull version.

  6. Bleeding Cool is stating its actually Carol Danvers taking the title and it will be written by Kelly Sue DeConnick.

  7. MBunge says:

    “Bleeding Cool is stating its actually Carol Danvers taking the title”

    Meanwhile, poor Monica Rambeau sits sobbing the corner of some tavern in Latveria.


  8. Not that it necessarily means anything, but the cover to Secret Avengers 27 shows him decidedly male and accompanied by Carol.

  9. As Benjamin Grimm once reportedly told a young Franklin Richards: “Superhero heaven doesn’t have pearly gates, it has revolving doors!”

    I say, let the dead rest.

  10. ikaras says:

    whas an “AvXhoo-hah”?

  11. Carlton Donaghe says:

    I hope Carol Danvers gets the job, wearing the classic red-and-black (blue?) suit. I was there for her first comic run, from the first few (when it wasn’t very good, but got better) to the two Cockrum issues that re-designed her costume and were awesome. I’m going to miss that costume, though. Classic Cockrum.

  12. Zoomy says:

    I’m probably the only person who wants them to bring back Genis…

  13. Maybe they’re going to have Marv change bodies with Carol using the negabands to capture the undiscovered gender-bending market.

    Because this is the “House of Ideas” we’re talking about after all.

  14. Zoomy you are not the only one who wants Genis back.

  15. Carlton: At the time, I recall like Ms. Marvel. But, I was young, she was sexy, and I haven’t re-read it since its original run (which is stashed in a box around here someplace).

  16. Let hope best of the “Captain Marvel” comeback. And it shouldn’t be temprorily.

  17. Does anybody actually want this character back? He was at his most interesting when he died in the 1980’s.
