      So my current list of suspects are:

        1. Captain Mar-Vell we are approaching the 50th anniversary of his creation and he is expected to appear in the Carol Danvers CM movie in some capacity.



    Quote:
    Personally I just want them to retire the name and force Carol to wear the black Ms. Marvel costume with the lightning strike again. That's all I want out of the long inspiring Marvel legacy is Carol wearing that costume.

Agreed on both counts. Carol's Black and Gold costume is iconic, and is really the only thing I've ever liked about the character.

As for the Captain Marvel name - since it has to exist for trademark issues, I say give it back to Monica. She's a beloved character who checks the boxes on diversity. Added bonus that she isn't REALLY a legacy character - no ties to Mar-Vell. None of Monica's subsequent names have really resonated. She's kind of like Kitty Pryde and Jean Grey in that way.

      2. I can't believe I didn't think of this one earlier.....especially since his creator just died. The one and only, the most over-hyped, most over-used, and most badly used at times mutant in the Marvel Universe..............that's right bub! I speak of....WOLVERINE!

I think you're on to something here. Although I haven't missed the character at all.

      Quote:

      3. original Nick Fury, the whole story of him killing Uatu and taking his place was so stupid. I can see his return breaking the internet with all the "whitewashing complaints"



    Quote:
    This needs to be fixed. I'm not even a Nick Fury fan. But that whole story was wrong.

Yes it does. I'd take a ridiculous, fan-fiction retcon (like Avengers Forever) just to make everything about Original Sins go away.

      Quote:
      4. The Fantastic Four

Seriously overdue. Without the first family, the Marvel Universe is just a bunch of unlikable individuals.


And my vote is no to Gwen, and an emphatic NO to Uncle Ben. Gwen could have some stories left in her it's true, but what could you possibly do with Ben? Aunt May is dreary enough - please don't saddle us with another grandparent figure in Peter's life.

Monica had her shot at being Captain Marvel, now she's just relegated to support character status and occasional keeper of the name Captain Marvel until someone else wants to use it, such as Genis and Carol.

If Carol were to revert to her costume with the lightning bolt that would be fine with me but all the SJW protesters would have a fit.

Just bring Mar-Vell back and publish the occasional mini series with him in it, or bring him back and for awhile have a backup story with him as the star in Carol's book then phase her out and put him back in.

They don't need to have a long running CM series to keep the trademark, just publish something titled Captain Marvel at regular intervals, even if it is a reprint of Marv's adventures, and they keep the trademark.

Remember the mini-series Untold Legend of Captain Marvel? It told of some of his time when he was a Kree soldier before he was assigned to Earth. More of that would be nice, also in Avengers vs X-men we learn that Marv still had relatives among the Kree, and they were the ones that conspired to get him back as part of their overall plans. Are there any other members of the Vell family left? What else do we not know of Mar-Vell? How old was he in Kree?Earth years before coming to Earth? What other adventures did he have as a Kree Soldier?

Also as I have posted before there are plenty of stories to tell about how Marv, the people of Earth, and the universe itself would react to his actual return. We got a glimpse of that in the Skrull-Vell miniseries (Grrr! HATE SKRULL-VELL) but that could still be explored.

How would the SKRULLS react to their greatest enemy returning from the dead?

Ronan the Accuser? he'd be sure to hunt down Marv

How would a mystic like Dr Strange handle Marv's return regarding the balance of life and death?

How about Mentor/Eros/Elysius?

Even Adam Warlock should be interested/curious about Marv's comeback.

Then of course there is THANOS........the enemy Marv was destined to defeat. THANOS has stated he has great respect for Marv, would they again be enemies or frenemies like Thanos is with Warlock?

Many stories to be told about Captain Mar-Vell, not the least of which is that his full power was seldom used and the Handbook entries about him only rated his strength at 15 tons maximum, yet when THANOS was prepping to use the Cosmic cube, Marv used his full speed to outmaneuver him and his full strength to smash THANOS around and was slowly wearing down a Titan with the power to face the THING and THOR at the same time in battle.

Marv was injuring his hands in the process and his strength wasn't at Thanos' level, but I suspect he was using more then 15 tons of muscle power in that fight. I suspect that thanks to his cosmic awareness he knew his power limits were greater then what he normally used but his newfound zen and desire for peace made him limit his power output.

His normal 5 senses were augmented in addition to receiving Awareness from Eon, none of that was really explored or developed. The big thing the writers kept working on was his fusion with Rick Jones until they finally separated for good.
