In the latest edition of Ten Things, I took a look at the various heroes to wear the name and symbol, be it lightning bolt or starburst, of Captain Marvel.  The history of these heroes is full of references, revamps, flat-out thievery and at least one lawsuit, but there are quite a few candidates for my favorite.  Is it Monica Rambeau, who led the Avengers and got by on a combination of chutzpah and brains?  Or perhaps Billy Batson, the excited young kid with the powers of a god?  Carol Danvers, who is poised to be the next big thing for the MCU?  It’s hard to choose between all the Captains Marvel, leading to today’s Kree-Skrull query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is probably going to go with Monica, because even *I* can’t choose Roger Winkle with a straight face, asking: Without choosing “best” or “most important”, which of the various Captains Marvel is YOUR favorite?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Monica. I’d vote for her for Avengers leader again!

    Based on the new Cap Marvel #1, is it just me or is Marvel kind of acting like “power breasts” black costume cheesecake Carol just was not a thing for a while there? I liked Carol as Binary or 1/2 a Rogue anyway. I am old. Forgive…

    I think I’m going to go with Freddie Freeman. If he’s great enough to inspire Elvis, who am I to argue?
