Before writer Kelly Sue DeConnick took the helm of the Captain Marvel comic books, Carol Danvers was still a superhero who went by the name of Ms. Marvel whose outfit amounted to a leotard with a sash around her waist. But with the start of DeConnick’s 2012 Captain Marvel run, Carol Danvers assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel for the first time in history and cemented herself as one of the most popular characters in Marvel Comics. Fans nicknamed themselves the Carol Corps, rocking Carol’s new signature mohawk helmet and her fully-covering suit at conventions (no more butt cheeks hanging out!).
The upcoming Captain Marvel feature film takes a lot of inspiration from DeConnick’s comic book run. That explains why they brought the writer on as a consultant for the film, as star Brie Larson revealed to us.
