    I'd be inclined to believe Diamond's shipping list over a Newsarama article. They don't exactly have a spotless record with getting their facts right in recent years. But I guess we'll find out for certain in just a few hours...

    Remember, it's Newsarama in name only now. It's not a comic book site any more, they're GamesRadar+, which as the name suggests, is a video game website. The people in charge don't care about comics.

"Because when I got in the business in the late '80s -- in '89 -- most of the published characters were going through a transformation of one type or another, usually meaning they were being redesigned -- new costumes. So, creating a composition like what I've done here is my of way of making the case for, 'These are the eternal versions of these characters.'"

    Carol as Captain Marvel might not fit into his "eternal" vision of the character since its fairly recent and still struggling for legitimacy for many readers. And then to portray Carol still in her Ms Marvel incarnation would conflict with the company line, so to speak.



    WOW. I'd somehow never seen Ross's Carol Captain Marvel design. Thanks for putting me on the hunt for it. From "Marvelocity"
    Idk how i feel about the mask but i'm glad they didn't went with his design.

    Ooooh no no no no no....that is some haphazard "I'm brand new to cosplay" nonsense.

    No disrespect to newbies to cosplay.

    Personally, I don’t see Carols Captain Marvel costume going anywhere.

    Did they fire the writers of Newsarama or absorb them?

    Interested in reading Daredevil? Not sure what to read next? Why not check out the Daredevil Book Club for some ideas?

    Why did they retcon Carol to be half-kree? (new reader here)

    Marvel has so much invested in the character. They are too deep into the Carol as Captain Marvel. Although, Captain Marvel should have been Monica Rambeau from the start.

    Because her old origin was entirely dependent on Mar-Vell. Originally, the Psyche Magnetron copied his powers giving them to Carol. The retconned origin is that it instead just activated latent powers she was born with.

    Which should have been her strength, flight, and precognition, with her energy powers still being attributed to the Brood’s genetic manipulation.

    Carol's precognition/7th Sense were a product of copying a portion of Mar-Vell's Cosmic Awareness, no? So that would not have been part of the basic Kree package of native abilities.
