“Captain Marvel is a story about a man out of time,” said Reed. “Imagine you’ve traveled forward in time a few years and learned that you have passed away from cancer. What would you do? How would you react? If you’re a proud soldier like Captain Marvel, you get mighty angry about the cards fate has dealt you, and you decide to try and do something about it. The big problem is, that there’s no undoing history. Captain Marvel still dies from cancer. But what he does with his life before that time is what matters.”


Captain Marvel #1 arrives November 14, 2007 for $2.99.

  1. Actually it looks pretty OK to me. I think Bendis is going to feature Captain Marvel in Secret Invasion hence the book.

  2. The only reason he is back is because Marvel has to publish something called Captain Marvel every few years or so to keep the copyright out of DC’s hands.

    My guess is they just got tired to creating new Captain Marvels that never last long.

  3. This hero was one of the best character around, and died way to quickly. His costume is a classic, he is a great warrior, he has cosmic powers… I hope they don’t mess him around too much. The only thing that bugs me is that “out of time” business, which means he is still dead anyway, it’s just a “short break” from death.

  4. Nothing is sacred, this may be a good story but it takes away all the impact and meaning of Mar-vells death. He WAS a beloved character but his death was handled in such a way that even attempting to bring him back in some form is poor. having said this after Buckys triumphant return I am staying open minded and am interested to see where this goes…..
