    Captain. There is nothing wrong with it and it suits her better. Plus 'Ms' is already being used.

    Captain, as Kamala has totally owned Ms. in a way Carol never couldn't (ironic, considering Kamala took up the name to honor Carol in the first place).

    I wish there'd been an "either" option in the poll. I prefer characters remain as they were created unless there's a material, story centered reason for the change.

    Carol's not diminished by being "Ms." and another "Captain" had already taken over the title (Monica).

    Ms.

    It's still kind of the identity I most associate her with (although I love Kamala) and Captain Marvel is still Billy Batson to me.

    This is a tough one for me. I agree that the "Ms." is not a downgrade. My knowledge of Carol before I read comics was her as Ms., and her old black and yellow outfit is really memorable in a number of ways. I easily would've chosen Ms. if Carol's Captain look was lousy and the person they chose to takeover the Ms. name was bad.

    Except...they weren't. I really like Carol's new look (though the short haircut really is lame), and of course, Kamala Khan has taken the Ms. name and brought so much new life to it. Add to that that Carol's finally getting her own movie with the name and, yeah, Carol Danvers to me IS Captain Marvel.

    Before Kamala I would nominate Monica for Captain Marvel codename but right now it's best if Carol has it

    Captain was put to better use by Monica Rambeau.

    Why is it that Captain sounds so much cooler than Colonel? Does Colonel sound too old?

    For most people, the ranking of "Colonel" immediately brings to mind the image of an old guy who created a fried chicken fast food chain, so yeah.

    Ms.

    I love the original Ms. Marvel series.

    Her as Captain Marvel. I just don’t like it. Maybe it’s becaise I really like Genis Vell.

    I like Kamala, but I wish she called herself Miss Fantastic.

    A character written to see Carol Danvers as somebody to idolize and her favorite superhero out of all of them...then gets her superhero name to be after Mr. Fantastic. Not seeing where this logic flows.

    Nope, Valeria gets first dibs on the name Miss or Ms Fantastic.

    Kamala has nothing to do with Reed other than similar powers. It would make for a good team-up issue where he gives her some tips or something, but not her naming herself after him.
