    I'm a little disappointed that SWORD is gone. But hope Abigail sticks around as CM's SiC and grumbles about how she used to be the head honcho all the time.

    Can someone sell me on the character real quick? What's her personality like?
    Tough, badass Air Force Pilot. Like Hal Jordan, but she actually thinks before she acts.
    Cyclops was right

    Eh. Pretty sure the main point of her recent activities is that she often fails to think before she acts.

    And Ruby Rose is an MTV VJ with short hair.

    If you've read modern Green Lantern, you would know what I mean. Hal is downright stupid recently.

    I'm somewhat interested….but the space thing. Fool me once Marvel, shame on YOU, fool me twice, shame on ME. I'll see what the reviews say. Still could've picked Jim Starlin.

    Pretty sure that's a recent trend in many books with average writers not sure how else to make the character relatible. It started big with Fraction's run on Hawkeye and spread to many other characters. Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew being two very intelligent historically characters who got dumbed down quite a bit recently. Carol in Kelly Sue's runs and Jessica in Secret Avengers and her new solo.

    Many others have fallen victim to this too. Now the show runners of Agent Carter didn't do that to Peggy so here's to hoping Carol gets smart again...
    Current Pull List (updated for ANAD): Star Wars □ Darth Vader □ Lando □ Chewbacca □ Kanan □ uh... alot of ANAD but I still have decided what yet, lol

    I love it when people try to throw around "ignorant" to keep the status-quo that never was. Women cut their hair like 3 decades ago
    Or more if you count all those flappers and their bobs.


    Women with short hair still have sex appeal, hence the internet going gaga for Ruby Rose.
    Yeah I can see it being a simple matter of personal taste, which is fine. But when I see someone asserting that no women wear short hair or that it's not something a woman would do it makes me wonder if the person saying this has been outside at any point in the last 15 years.

    Marvel hasn't made announcements on the CAPTAIN MARVEL movie, but I wouldn't be surprised if this series is setting a status quo that will be similar in some fashion to what we can expect – similar to when Bendis revamped GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY when that film was being set up. One of the things I noticed looking at the minor changes to the costume was that it looks more than ever like a flight suit (look at the sides and the feet). I can picture in my head an image on film where Danvers in a flight suit "energizes" into a costume like this. My other thought is on her origins in the comics during the Mar-vell days in NASA security –*with the talk from the AVENGERS of upping Earths security against extraterrestrial threats (and the question of where the rights to Abigail Brand would fall), I could easily see Carol Danvers in the MCU introduced as the former-USAF security chief on a (NASA? New Avengers Initiative? New S.H.I.E.L.D.?) security station in orbit monitoring for alien activity when Kree arrive –*and then end up in this same sort of 'home defense' role that the book places here after she gets her powers.

    The major complaint that many had for DeConnick's work on CAPTAIN MARVEL was plot – her character and script work was well-liked and helped bring in many of the "Carol Corps," of course. Turning to writers who have been responsible for plotting stories in short bursts like AGENT CARTER's short seasons is probably somewhat of a response, as well a look at connecting to the feel of the MCU in preparation for the movie. It's likely that these writers (and perhaps some others before them) will be involved in the consultant group that Marvel uses for each character's film to bring their films in line with characters as seen in the books (lest we see the old problem of superhero films going too far afield). Likewise, as with GotG and others, I suspect that this team and revamp of what CM's place in the universe is a "meet them halfway" of placing the character where readers will see the connection between the film's Carol and the book's Carol more clearly when the film is released –*part of Marvel's long-game that I think they've pretty successfully done in recent years.
