What starts as a
capricious (or subconscious?) change in looks ends up as the most
significant move Carol Danvers has made in years, and the
realization of her wildest dream since House of M. After the events
in Operation Phoenix, a yet unseen team-up with Rogue, and an
exciting skirmish with the Absorbing Man, Ms. Marvel has a couple of
heart-to-hearts with close friends that lead in a natural way to her
taking over the mantle and legacy of Captain Marvel.
DeConnick is able to
introduce the character to new readers in a friendly manner while
giving long time followers the opportunity to learn new things about
Carol's past; all in a self contained story, which in a #1 issue is
as scarce as dinosaurs nowadays. Dexter Soy produces some beautiful
images, especially those featuring Captain Marvel fully armored. As
an added bonus, the issue's Augmented Reality (AR) content features
a couple of Kelly Sue clips. Amazing book!
