Captain Marvel # 1 slated to hit shelves in July but the real news is that the new Captain Marvel is going to be Carol Danvers. That’s right, the soon to be former Ms. Marvel is going to rise as the new Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel has had a very long and interesting history with ties to many heroes and villains including Thanos, which I only mention him because I’m still in awe after seeing him in the end credits of The Avengers.
Here is the press release from Marvel Entertainment:
