*Marvel: ‘This Female Fights Back!’ was the tagline of Ms Marvel, Marvel Comics’ attempt to publish a solo heroine with a bit more longevity than 1972’s Claws of the Cat. Spinning out of Captain Marvel, former background character Carol Danvers got her own set of super-powers and a whole new supporting cast (including new boss J. Jonah Jameson) as she attempted to discover the mystery behind her own origins. Although moderately successful, the series was attacked by critics who derided Carol’s derivative costume, which made her look like Captain Marvel’s sidekick, and the fact that Marvel were offering a ‘powerful, confident’ heroine who suffered from blackouts and amnesia. Despite these jibes, Ms Marvel has been a prominent member of the Marvel Universe for nearly forty years in one guise or another – whether as Ms Marvel, Binary, Warbird, or most recently the latest Captain Marvel, her chequered history has provided many intriguing plotlines. With the Captain Marvel movie, starring the Carol Danvers iteration of the character, launching in 2019, early appearances of the character are hotting up, and in view of extensive recent sales, we’ve taken the opportunity to completely refresh our listing for ‘Captain Carol’, deleting sold items and adding in 18 new listings for numbers between #2 to #23, the final issue of her original series, mostly in respectable and affordable mid-grades.
