Summary
"Captain Marvel, Earth's Mightiest Hero with an attitude to match, is launching headfirst into an all-new adventure! As Carol Danvers comes to a crossroads with a new life and new romance, she makes a dramatic decision that will alter the course of her life-- and the entire Marvel Universe. But as Carol takes on a mission to return an alien girl to her homeworld, she lands in the middle of an uprising against the Galactic Alliance and the Spartax! Investigating the forced resettlement of Rocket Girl's people, Carol discovers she has a history with the man behind the plot. But when the bad guy tries to blackmail [her] and turn the Avengers against her, it's payback time!"--Page 4 of cover

Review
  • Marvel recently announced that fan-favorite Captain Marvel—pilot Carol Danvers—will join the roster of its film studio’s blockbuster superhero movies, so the arrival of this first collection of Captain Marvel’s own comic is more than a little timely. Danvers is making her mark as an Avenger in New York, but when she’s offered a yearlong outpost in space, she can’t help but leap at the chance. At the heart of her mission is returning an alien girl back to her home planet, but once Danvers arrives with her charge, she learns that the planet is a hotly contested piece of property. Soon, she’s tangling with former allies and greedy mercenaries, all while trying to preserve the lives of a displaced alien population. Lopez’s swooping artwork makes propulsive action scenes and alien creatures come to life, and DeConnick’s story—packed with the comic interludes and witty characters that make Marvel’s movies so entertaining—provides just enough backstory that readers new to the character should be able to jump right in. Rollicking comic-book fun. -- Hunter, Sarah (Reviewed 12-15-2014) (Booklist, vol 111, number 8)
  • (The following is a combined review for Captain Marvel: Higher, Further, Faster, More; Ms. Marvel: No Normal; and ) Gr 9 Up — Two series openers offer gender inclusivity, in creators and content, into the mainstream superheroes comic book world. These stories showcase how both main characters undergo a process of self-identification and searching for a role within their own respective worlds. In Ms. Marvel , which collects issues #1–5, Wilson introduces readers to Kamala Kahn, a Pakistani American teenage girl from New Jersey. In this adventure, she initially transforms into Carol Danvers's Captain Marvel, a white superheroine who Kamala admires and is responsible for giving the teen the power to evolve. Kamala encounters external and internal transformations to accept and create her own persona as a teen and as a superheroine. Captain Marvel , which contains issues #1–6, offers new adventures with the infamous Carol Danvers, who was orginally introduced as Ms. Marvel in the 1970s. In her writing, DeConnick portrays a self-determined and bold character who is committed to her heroic duty. Here, Captain Marvel is on a mission to save a girl and to return her to her planet, which then shifts to a story of discovery, critique of diplomatic relations, and a special appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Both illustrators, Alphona and Lopez, imbue the proceedings with vibrancy and showcase the now official aesthetics of Ms. Marvel's and Captain Marvel's outfits. VERDICT Fun and much-needed comic series that defy the typical oversexualization and damsel in distress archetype of women in comics.—Sujei Lugo, Boston Public Library, MA --Sujei Lugo (Reviewed May 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 5, p126)
