The Origins Of Captain Marvel Explained

  • Captain Marvel has a long and complex history in Marvel comics! Subscribe to our channel:

    There are a number of characters who have gone by the name "Captain Marvel" over the years - and they've appeared in both Marvel and DC comic books.
    One of them - Carol Danvers, the most modern version from Marvel's comics - is getting her own Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in 2019.
    We're really excited about it - seriously, it's going to be amazing - because Danvers is an awesome character and the movie will introduce the shapeshifting Skrulls to the MCU, which could be absolutely pivotal to the plot of the entire franchise going forward (and she's set to be the most powerful superhero in the franchise, which is awesome).
    In this video, we'll explain how Danvers came to be such a powerful superhero. These are the origins of Captain Marvel explained...
    Carol Danvers worked for N.A.S.A. as the organisation's Security Director. She became friends with a co-worker who was actually the Kree super-agent Mar-Vell. When an old enemy of Mar-Vell's attacked him, he shielded Danvers from the resulting radiation. This resulted in her DNA becoming merged with his - and she gained similar powers to him as a result (super-strength, speed and durability, flight capabilities, and energy absorption, projection and manipulation).
    She didn't immediately take the name "Captain Marvel". She has also been known as Ms. Marvel, Binary and Warbird.
    She has been a member of the Avengers and various other superhero teams and organisations.
    We hope you enjoy the video! Make sure you comment to let us know what you think - and don't forget to subscribe to the channel to be notified of our other great videos in the future.

    This Captain Marvel has 2 many origins. I want to know when we're going to see Blue Marvel. He is the true OP, OG of Marvel comics.

    Captain Super Saiyan in MCU is not Marvel Comics Ms Marvel. Some story threads yes, but does not appear to be Ms Marvel. Who was a B level character at best (a D level in the most recent depictions from several failed reboots) and never in Thor’s or Hulks league. Wanda and certainly Dr Strange could beat her in the comics. Captain Mary Sue in MCU is the first step of MCU following Star Wars from Woke to Broke(n).

    You know if powers like captain marvel and mister manhattan are acquired "accidentally", they should logically mass produced the power or make stronger one based on the mistake.
    Artificial godly accident power is bullshit for me.
