    The comicbook character Doctor Minerva's role in Operation: Galactic Storm was to me a nice shocking revelation to read..

    "Empire's End" Double-Sized issue. Operation: Galactic Storm Part 19 of 19.
    The Nega-bomb explodes and destroys everything in its path across the Kree empire, killing billions in the process.
    On Chandilar, Lilandra is informed of the Kree's demise but cries in the moment of victory.

    Quasar, momentarily stunned by the blast, awakens to find Iron Man, Sersi, Black Knight, Hercules and Crystal floating lifelessly in space.
    Thor and the rest of the Avengers arrive in the Quinjet to retrieve them

    and Starfox is able to revive the comatose Avengers.

    Meanwhile on Hala, Deathbird finds Captain America among the ruins and gives him CPR.
    The Supreme Intelligence reveals his hand in the entire plot, which was a means to overcome an evolutionary dead among the Kree.
    Deathbird rages but Captain America just says to leave him be.

    The Avengers touch down on the planet and while making their way through the wreckage, they encounter Captain Atlas and Dr. Minerva.
    Atlas blames the Avengers for the destruction and attacks them.
    They are subdued and Captain America and Deathbird appear and reveal the truth,
    including Minerva's knowledge of the Supreme Intelligence's plan.

    Atlas turns his rage against her while Minerva tries to explain the long-term benefits of what has happened.
    Atlas prepares to kill himself and with his final words, asks the Avengers to make the Supreme Intelligence pay for what he has done.
    Minerva embraces Atlas at the last moment as they both disappear in a flash.

    The Black Knight proposes that they kill the Supreme Intelligence while Captain America angrily disagrees

    and a division forms among the ranks over the next course of action.
    One group heads off to follow through with Black Knight's proposal but Iron Man prevents Deathbird from joining them.

    They reach the Supreme Intelligence, who creates images of each of their adversaries but they are unable to stop the Avengers.
    They destroy the screen to reveal an organic life system, which stops Thor from joining the others in destroying the Supreme Intelligence.

    They return to the others as Lilandra and the Shi'ar arrive, claiming the planet for their empire.
    Lilandra makes Deathbird its ruler in order to keep an eye on her.
    Captain America wishes her luck and says things will never be the same.

    Meanwhile, the Supreme Intelligence appears to have survived, as a beam of light shot into the sky at the moment of his supposed demise.
    A ship with a Skrull and another unknown figure happen upon his remains as part of
    a pre-arranged meeting as the Supreme Intelligence says he can afford to be patient.
    Appearances by Atlas, Minerva, and Majestrix Lilandra.
    Avengers Lineup: Black Knight, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Crystal, Goliath, Hercules, Iron Man,
    Living Lightning, Quasar, Scarlet Witch, Sersi, Starfox, Thor, Wonder Man and the Vision.

    Exclamation Marvel Fan Makes Scary Observation of Thanos in Present Day MCU

    In a recent post to the r/MarvelStudios subreddit, a page “ dedicated to Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole,” one fan reminded everyone that Thanos’ ship, the Sanctuary II, is still intact.
    https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/09...esent-day-mcu/

    Wow! Then the MCU Captain Marvel is to be send to investigate
    to make certain that the Sanctuary II is still abandoned.
    Just like in the comics.




    Just like Captain Marvel wonders in the comics:
    What would people back on the MCU Earth say if they
    knew the Sanctuary II is still out in space?

    An IMPORTANT issue!
    It reveals, not only, that the comicbook character Ms. Marvel is to be the mother of a race of 'New-Kree'...
    Quote Originally Posted by 616MarvelYear is LeapYear View Post

    Ronan the Accuser arrives in Texas to eliminate a number of Kree that have fled to Earth to find new lives.
    He then travels to New York where he locates and attacks Carol Danvers.

    Changing into Ms. Marvel, she proves to be no match for the Kree soldier.
    When Captain Mar-Vell arrives he is shocked to find that Carol is wearing a uniform similar to his,
    giving Ronan the opportunity to knock both of them out and take them aboard his ship.

    There, under the supervision of the Supreme Intelligence, Ronan probes Carol's mind to learn of her past,
    and the events that led to her becoming Ms. Marvel. After the probe is done,
    both she and Mar-Vell break free and take down Ronan, then make their escape from the ship.

    Afterwards, the two reconcile and agree to be friends before parting company.

    Chris Claremont script. Carmine Infantino & Bob McLeod art.
    ...it also reveals said comicbook character's character trait of wanting to be her 'own woman'!

    "


    With this issue, Chris Claremont made it very clear that, when publisher Martin Goodman ordered Stan The Man to create MC's own Captain Marvel,
    Stan REALLY NOT wanting to do it, Stan lazily came up with Mar-Vell Captain Marvel.
    Roy The Boy followed suit with Carol Danvers Ms. Marvel.

    Detective Comics & Marvel Comics;
    Kal-El Superman
    Mar-Vell Captain Marvel


    Detective Comics & Marvel Comics;
    Kara Danvers Supergirl
    Carol Danvers Ms. Marvel

    How much more on-the-nose can you get!

    In establishing that the comicbook character Carol Danvers wanted to be her 'own woman' it made perfect sense to bestow on said
    character her own unique superhero name AND superhero look as in BINARY and WARBIRD (Carol's love for aircrafts)

    Talking Happy Birthday Jim Shooter!!!

    Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #5 Sep 1984
    "The Battle of Four Armies!"
    Mister Fantastic's worse fears have been realized: trapped on Battleworld by the Beyonder,
    Galactus has summoned his worldship so that he can consume this patchwork world and sate his hunger.
    Although this is an awesome sight, the assembled heroes try to figure out what to do next.
    The healer named Zsaji is in a panic, so the Human Torch tries to calm her down,
    however there is a language barrier between the two of them. In order to break past them, Zsaji takes Johnny to her home
    where she opens a bottle containing a strange gas that allows them to meld minds so Johnny can tell her what's going on.

    He recounts how they were gathered by the Beyonder to battle to the death
    and obtain their heart's desire, leading to a clash with super-villains being led by Doctor Doom.
    This resulted in the injuries the heroes sustained before seeking Zsaji's help.

    Elsewhere, the X-Man known as Colossus tries to sleep but cannot help but think about his girlfriend Kitty Pryde whom he left at home.
    His thoughts about her are quickly cut off by the telepathic summons of Professor X.
    Colossus joins the rest of the X-Men in meeting with Xavier and Magneto.
    With the threat of Galactus becoming apparent, Magneto orders the X-Men to attack him in order
    to distract the world devourer long enough for Magneto and Xavier to take a more subtle attack.
    When Wolverine balks at taking orders from Magneto, the Professor tells his team to follow Magneto's orders.

    Meanwhile, the Molecule Man and Volcana are bonding and growing closer together.
    As they walk past the Wrecking Crew and the Absorbing Man, Pile Driver decides to pick on the Molecule Man.
    When none of his friends back him up in bullying the Molecule Man, Pile Driver learns why it is not a good idea to make him angry:
    Owen Reece channels his powers to change Pile Driver's costume into into an ultra hard metal causing him to fall over.
    Adding insult to injury, Pile Driver has his face pushed into the mud by Volcana
    and they leave him to be ripped out of his costume by the others.
    As the others just begin to notice Galactus' worldship hovering over Battleworld,
    Doctor Doom has long since been aware of its arrival and is busy working on a plan to use this to his advantage.
    His work is interrupted by the Enchantress who tries to seduce Doom by offering to repair the damage done to his face.
    Doom resists her offers and tells her to begone. Frustrated by being rejected by a mere mortal, the Enchantress teleports away.

    As Magneto and Xavier channel their powers together to try and establish telepathic contact with Galactus,
    the heroes gathered at the base of his mountain decide what to do next.
    Mister Fantastic figures he can try to reach out to Galactus as he had recently saved the world devourer's life.
    However neither ploy works, and Galactus rebuffs telepathic contact
    and causes a section of Magneto's base to explode while also blasting Reed aside.
    Seeing the heroes as pests, Galactus unleashes a robot to keep them busy
    while he begins forming the device he needs to consume Battleworld.
    Although the heroes manage to destroy the robot set upon them, they are suddenly attacked by Doctor Doom's villains.
    While the battle rages, Doom watches from a distance.

    When it appears that his minions are going to succeed,
    the heroes get saved thanks to the timely intervention of the X-Men.
    The sheer force of the battle is enough to temporarily distract Galactus from his work and while
    the world devourer's head is turned, Doctor Doom quickly pilots his ship in to the Worldship of Galactus.
    Doom's minions are forced to flee, but not before seriously wounding Colossus.
    With the battle over the X-Men pull back but are forced to leave their comrade behind.
    Although Wolverine protests this, Xavier points out that Colossus' injuries were serious enough that
    to move him would have killed him and that the heroes have a healer on their side who can save his life.

    In the aftermath of the battle, the heroes find Colossus and see that he needs medical attention.
    When they get Zsaji to heal him, Colossus is taken by how beautiful she is
    and grows instantly jealous that she happens to be interested in the Human Torch.
    Colossus then pretends to be in even more pain in order to get more of her healing touch.
    Meanwhile, as Mister Fantastic and Captain America fear the worst about Galactus,
    they are unaware that Doctor Doom has gained access to his ship.
    From within, Doom hopes to find the tools he needs to defeat both Galactus and then the Beyonder.
    Suddenly his attention is drawn toward something of great interest on one of the walls of the ship.
