What do you get when you add a horde of zombies to a body swap during a covert op? Shenanigans, mostly. In Captain Marvel #7, “Strange Trip” and the War of the Realms continues as Carol and Doctor Strange try to navigate each other’s bodies and powers, with Black Widow by their side. The goal is to defeat the Enchantress, but can they do that before things get even weirder?

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN! Captain Marvel’s got a magical right hook — but what happens when she loses her mighty fists? When a powerful spell from the Enchantress causes Carol and DOCTOR STRANGE to body-swap, everything about their mission is called into question. What was once a covert ops mission with BLACK WIDOW to take down the Enchantress and her “Land of the Dead” is now a comedy of errors — casting spells wasn’t exactly covered in Carol’s military training. But Carol Danvers is more than her powers, and the Enchantress is about to discover that the hard way.
