Whether this story crossover deserved an opening special or could have been done without is moot and the epilogue chapter is a welcome uplift to the close of this chapter in her life.
The fact that this chapter links back in to the Origin of Carol as Ms Marvel in a surprisingly natural way does mean that it all works as a stand alone adventure for the new or for the lapsed reader alike.
The art for the Avengers Assembled issues is fine - the rest is truly awful! It borders on the worst I've seen - ever! I can't even say it is a 'quirky style' - it's just bad. How can the female form of beautiful Captain Marvel and guest-starring Spider-Woman look so ugly and badly drawn?
If you can, try hard to get past that as the story, the history, the villain and the heart of the story is worthy of your interest.
A milestone is reached and a new beginning launched after this quality link to where the character has been.
This loses a star for the bad art but otherwise - recommended.

The art in this book is okay. I don't like that the women are all drawn so teeny and the men are hulks (especially when the women can pack near-to or the same punch as their male muscle-bound peers), but I'm at least used to Filipe Andrade's odd art style at this point, which I know was a point of contention when volume 2 and its related issues came out. I feel that it's improved since that volume and I actually enjoy it for the most part. I love Joe Quinones' covers and they're all in here along with some of the alternate covers, which is great (I wish he would just do the art for the series or that they would at least bring back volume 1's artists, but whatever). Scott Hepburn, Matteo Buffagni and Pepe Laraz have a great run in this book. My only problem with the art is when I'm guessing Gerardo Sandoval takes the helm. He makes Captain America look like a mini blue/white hulk action figure with World of Warcraft shoulders and the women look utterly ridiculous. The only good thing is that he shares the time with Hepburn and only does so briefly, so his impact is mitigated. The writing quality also helps ease you past that occasionally cringe-worthy art.
If you love Captain Marvel, the Avengers and a bit of humor and some fun plot, you should check this book out. It's wonderful!
The art, by Scott Hepburn, Matteo Buffagni and Filipe Andrade was really, completely well done. I enjoyed every aspect of this book. Thank you. :)
The first two Captain Marvel volumes had extremely solid stories that were sometimes mishandled with seemingly random plot elements (gian robot fights and dinosaurs) and dragged down with unfortunate art. This story however has excellent pacing, shows the dynamic she has with her fellow Avengers perfectly, and show's just WHY we should take her seriously as a true hero. The art is also consistently good (last issue is unfortunately not as well illustrated but that's it).
I am so looking forward to continuing with Captain Marvel's storylines both in Avengers comics and her own standalone. I can't recommend this more!
But the biggest treat here is the inclusion of Captain Marvel 17, which features a good enough dollop of action, but is instead a smaller, more intimate story that shows off DeConnick's deft touch with characterization. Recommended.
Greatly recommended for all comic book fans, especially girls.
