4.0 out of 5 stars A superbly entertaining story 22 Sep 2013
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This storyline runs through issues #1-6 of the latest series of Captain Marvel, and is collected as Captain Marvel - Volume 1: In Pursuit of Flight (Marvel Now). The story opens with Ms Marvel (in a new costume) having a conversation with Captain America about whether she should take on the currently vacant title of Captain Marvel, while beating up the Absorbing Man. After beating up Spider-Man in the gym, having a flashback to her first meeting with Helen Cobb, a female pilot who was her inspiration for originally taking up flying, who she discovers, has just died, Carol later flies into space to release the ashes of her lifelong heroine, and accepts the mantle of Captain Marvel. This connection is important, for Helen has left Carol the aeroplane that she made an uncertified altitude record flight in, in her younger days. When carol sets out to replicate the feat in order to prove that it could have been done, she falls into a time-warp and meets her heroine at several stages of her past life. It turns out that Helen had found a fragment of a Kree machine back in the day, and has used it to turn the plane into a time-machine to let Carol relive some of Helen’s experiences – and some of her own. It is a well illustrated and well-scripted story, and a good start to this new series. There is also a sub-plot or two in the present day, bringing in a supporting cast for Carol’s civilian life – though ‘civilian’ includes Jessica Drew, Spider-Woman.

The only problem I had with the story is the motivation for Helen to have done the time-travel thing in the first place. Unless she knew who Carol was from their past encounters, and did it to ‘complete the circuit’, as it were, then I may have missed something here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts off great 2 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
And loses its way somewhere along the road. Opens up with great artwork and brilliant dialogue and characterisation.

Sadly is let down later on by poorly thought out action sequences, badly scripted time paradox plotting full of absolute nonsense and bungled continuity, and jarring artist changes that fail to fit the tone of the book.

Worth a look for the early pages but expect a limp ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally a superheroine in a practical outfit. 29 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For too long have female sueprheroes been given the overtly sexist costume, have they been pitted up against second rate villains, until now!.

Captain marvel is the re-invention of Ms Marvel, and an amazing one at that. It captures a sense of frontiership, of exploring the new role of captain marvel as the character does, while at the same time creating a world in which a femal superhero can operate at a brilliaint level without the need to be a subordinate of any male hero (eg supergirl, batgirl etc)

This is highly reccommended, even if you don't know the history of captian marvel, there is a guide at the end of the story to fill you in.

The artowrk inside is differetn than the covers however, so don't expect to see the same artwork.
