It is the mark of misogynists everywhere to want to see two attractive women fight for his attention. In Captain Marvel #4, Carol Danvers is faced with an old enemy: the X-Man Rogue, who once drained Carol’s powers and memories. Now they’re both trapped on Nuclear Man’s apocalyptic island and he wants them to battle for the title of his bride… which frankly sounds like a total nightmare.
