Captain Marvel is the most well-known hero in the Marvel Universe following the events of Civil War II, and Marvel is giving Carol Danvers a new series beginning in December.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series writer Margaret Stohl said, “She will be one of the most popular heroes on the planet — but that’s not something she is very comfortable with. And of course she’s lost a lot of folks that she’s loved, so she has to cope with that, too. Captain Marvel has suddenly become a household name — so what now? While she finds herself at the top of her game, she’ll also discover that being there means that game is more dangerous and complicated than ever.”
According to Marvel, here is what Carol is dealing with post Civil War II:
As the ashes of Civil War II settle, Captain Marvel must come to terms with her new superstar status-quo, but notoriety doesn’t necessarily mean she’s well liked. Thrust into the spotlight, Carol has come to realize that often times, popularity and pain come hand in hand.
On top of dealing with a public life she never asked for, Captain Marvel’s global defense unit, Alpha Flight, is now tasked with training the next generation of planetary defenders. But how can Carol be a leader and mentor when the loyalties of heroes of the Marvel Universe are now fractured from Captain Marvel’s role in the most recent Civil War?
This will be Stohl’s first comic book. She has previously written the Caster Chronicles YA book series with Kami Garcia, and has video game industry work with Activision, writing Spider-Man and Fantastic Four games.
Joining Stohl is artist Ramon Rosanas, who has previously worked on Astonishing Ant-Man.
