    If they want to push Jessica as a spider character, then she really should be closer to Peter. Until Spider-Verse, their entire relationship was based on both being on Bendis's New Avengers together. And the Jess that Peter first knew there was an imposter!

    And since Jessica is one of Carol's best friends, it would bring Peter into her circle as well.

    Considering that I've seen interviews where KSD states that she wrotes Carol as a person in her late -30 or early 40s, that she considered Jess to be about 7 years younger than Carol and Jess is, in canon, over 30 and therefore older than Peter...I don't think Carol and Peter are likely to become an item, considering he's just maybe 30? At most?

    I've always seen her as late 20, early 30's, but I guess timeline wise she'd have to be older.

    I've always pictured Carol as someone in her late 30s and I think it's reinforced with how she's written. She doesn't strike me as being Parker's age.

    Nit that Carol can't be friends with Peter but I don't see anything more than that.

    Maybe it's because she physically looks like she's in her 20's to me, but that's probably because her powers have slowed her aging down.

    Yeah, I think Captain Marvel The End showed Carol was ageless, but her powers had also changed her by that point and she glowed all the time and in a way didn't even have a human form anymore, she was just a being of pure energy.

    Early 30's is the absolute most that Marvel editorial would allow her to be.

    Carol is imortal, she doesn't age.

    She's not immortal, but Kree do live longer than humans, so she would have enhanced longevity. And yes, it does explain why she looks younger than she is - she would've been in her late 20s when she got her powers (considering her military rank), and not have visibly aged since then (getting her powers is what triggered her Kree genetics) even if she's now pushing 40 (she debuted in the 70s, which would be at least 10 years ago in-universe). I've seen people say that Tyler Hoechlin is too young to play Superman (on the CW), but he's not, because Superman also doesn't age as fast as humans do. Likewise, Brie Larson doesn't need aging make up to play Carol in the present day even though the first Captain Marvel film was set in the 90s. The only way her appearance changed in Avengers Endgame was her hairstyle, but the character must've been about 50 years old there (Carol was in her 20s - Brie's actual age - when she got her powers, and Endgame is around two and a half decades after her solo film).

    Her immortality doesn't come from the kree blood but the experiment the brood did on her.

    Ive always pictured modern day Carol as being in her late 30s as well. If Spider-Man is canonically in his late 20s, then that would work as she should be about at least a decade older than him

    Really? I was expecting it considering that she just so happened to show up when Carol got the hammer. Seemed like an inevitability to me.

    I guess in hindsight, but I was just thinking I wasn't sure we needed a female Ronan .
