The Origins Of Captain Marvel Explained

  • Published on:  2/18/2018
  • Captain Marvel has a long and complex history in Marvel comics! Subscribe to our channel: 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!

    Because she isn’t really “Captain Marvel.” She’s “Miss Marvel.” Captain Marvel is Shazam. This feels too contrived.

    I dont think her backstory is interesting. The reason why wonder women was so successful was because the comic origins really captures the identity of a woman in a mans world. Wonder women as a story shows how society and culture constantly create narratives of women being a damsel in distress. Her hero fights against that. Captain Marvel's hero and backstory seems bland and generic.

  • literally half way through the video they proudly proclaim "This is exactly what we are GOING to do in this video"Well... get on with it already! :P hehe

    Scarlet Witch should be more powerful, but the MCU version is either much weaker or just hasn't discovered the full extent of her powers.

    Scarlet Witch is waaaaaaaaay too emotional.
