With Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel film hitting in just a few months, now has never been a better time to be a fan of Carol Danvers and her heroic alter ego. As the anticipation for the movie ramps up and more and more of the spotlight is thrown on the character, Marvel Comics is doing a wonderful job of delving into what makes Carol tick for older readers, as well as providing multiple gateways for newer fans of the superhero.
One such gateway is The Life of Captain Marvel, with the fourth issue–written by Margaret Stohl; art by Carlos Pacheco, Rafael Fontirez, and Erica D’urso; colored by Marcio Menyz; and lettered by Clayton Cowles–hitting newsstands and available for digital download this Wednesday, October 17th. With the big revelation about her true origins at the end of last issue, Carol will face the emotional fallout of new information about her parentage. And if these exclusive preview pages are any indication, the whole creative team is about to lead us on action-packed struggle of internal pathos and external bombast!
The Life of Captain Marvel #4 goes on sale Wednesday, October 17th, from Marvel Comics.
From the official issue description:
THE MOMENT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR: THE ORIGIN OF CAPTAIN MARVEL! It was an accident of fate. A mysterious bonding between a super hero, a human and an alien machine. Mar-Vell and the Psyche-Magnitron that gave her Kree powers have been part of Carol’s story since the beginning — but that’s just the story you know. The true tale of Carol Danvers and her journey to becoming Captain Marvel begins years ago, on a star-filled night in a sleepy town. A night that no one knew would change the world.
