Subj: Captain Marvel #1: 0-DAY...

For those of you who don't mind my quick replies to 0-DAY fourchan copypasta in lieu of a formal review...

Captain Marvel #1 (2019)

    Today in the adventures of Captain Retcon, she gets another #1 because dammit this one better sell.

    Wait... that Kar-El sh*t was real? I thought for sure that would be a fake out by the end of that arc.

Yeah, thank the MCU - that's seems here to stay. What was welcome about that recap info was the definitive confirmation that Carol is no longer head of (or associated with) AFSS. What would've been nicer would be to get who is AFSS Director now. Maybe a footnote placing this story before Avengers #1 should've been in order, too?

    Anonymous 01/09/19(Wed)02:56:30 No.105189832
    Yeah, she's natty part space alien now.

How ironic would it be if AFSS targets her for some reasons now? ;\)

    Carol gets ANOTHER number one issue? How many relaunches is this for her book, now? Five? Six?

And she admits to a bookshelf full books of mistakes. ;\)

    I lost count, but I think this might be the 6th since Reed's run.

    Anonymous 01/09/19(Wed)02:58:51 No.105189863
    It should have been "13 year old boys say their dad works at Nintendo", but then that would mean Carol works at Nintendo, and not hint at lesbian sex she's missing out on.

Yeah, that was a weird/dated expression to force into banter simply for the (intended) gag.

    Kar-El? Oh it's real, and it makes absolutely zero sense. Clumsiest and most transparently politically-motivated retcon in ages.

Interesting observation about #ing.

    Because all Carol gets is relaunches.
    She sucks, and will always suck. That should be beyond obvious by now. This is Hawkman levels of retcon malarky.

    How did Rhodey even come back? I haven't been paying attention much since CW2. Since it was crap.

Tony Stark rebuilt himself and Rhodey organically. *koff*

    God this dialogue is painful to get through

Actually, it was alright - for the most part. Only a few groaners. And Hazmat has a totally new POV voice - probably from untold new backstory.

    Anonymous 01/09/19(Wed)03:12:28 No.105190079
    Why are these books always about how epic and badass the woman is for existing? What are some comics with female characters that are likable because they suffer and persevere?

"OH HELL, NO." Well, that quote when the kraken ate the little girl was awesome badass. And Carol has been the former since after she slapped Thor in the face back when. To be fair she has had her seriously bad days too. Quite a few.

    Anonymous 01/09/19(Wed)03:12:45 No.105190083
    Is that Superman IV: The Quest for Peace's Nuclear Man?

Heh. Seriously, though, my knee jerk reaction was to hate the return of Mahkizmo (again) with unsatisfying explanation of what happened to the Femizons timeline that Reed obliterated from existence. Same annoyance happened with the introduction of Lyra-Hulk. Maybe Reed remade the timeline after SW to exist in Universe-8? UGH!! Can't believe I just suggested that crap.

    Anonymous 01/09/19(Wed)03:13:04 No.105190087
    the dialogue was not even written well - just quirky, like a tumblr fan fic

Again, not horrible like the stuff that got her previous runs cancelled. The friendships and kinships felt real. The battle banter was standard comic book - for the most part. Tony has more or less forgiven her previously, moving forward. Rhodey was bound to bump into her for reactions, better sooner than later. Handbook villain. Hazmat and intro of Ripley have potential for new cast. Rhodey and Jess might end up seasoned cast.

That transition to the last page surprise was brutal. Was it forshadowing or elapse time between issues? Either way it screams contrived - unless maybe those new teammates are just alt-future version of heroes who 'will become' important to Carol in this run. Echo?! Seriously?

    Ugh. WTF did I just read. Nuclear man blowing Carol away and having to say she's just a WOMAN. Carol saying she's an "icon", Tony and Thor saying that Carol made it look "easy". Black Iron Man with a smug face looking at the reader. WTF.

    It's... okay. Didn't care for all the quips and jabs, felt like it was 90% of the comic. Decent action although Nuclear Man is not the best choice and his sudden appearance is weird. The more the comic went on the less I liked it.
    It's not bad. It's not good. It's a comic.

    Why? Why do they keep pushing this relationship as if Rhodey were the greatest love of her life? The writers hardly showed them interact, the only reason readers even knew they were in a relationship half the time is because it would be in a narration box, this is one of the worst written relationships in any comic because of how nonexistent it was. Puck had more of a relationship with Car-ell than Rhodey did.

Hmm... Eugene + Carol? Hmm...

    To be fair, Mahkizmo's whole gimmick was to be super powered sexist guy who fought Thundra, leader of the man-hating femizons.

    Car-ell's an alcoholic alien sociopath, who routinely takes blows to the head, but her some slack.

There's that. And the Rogue sucking out her life of course.

    This CM mess started with her first book as Captain Marvel in 2012 by DeConnick. Then the space relaunch in 2014. Then the Secret Wars mini. Then the Butters-Fazekas book that tied into Civil War with Gage's issues. Then the Mighty Captain Marvel book by Stohl with the awful YA characters in the Secret Empire arc. Then the unbearable Life of Captain Marvel mini. And now this.

It is a decent redesign. But yeah, the sash is impractical - at least shorten it, Carol. Although Kamala might disagree.

    Well, at least this time they chose a villain whose shtick was already that very thing. It was terrible when they took Creel (twice) to do that, but he was originally written as the anti-Thundra. The only difference with the 70s is that now we really don't get the "ultra-feminists are wrong and overreacting too" angle

Creel's paying for that in Hell right now, eh.

    Danvers has a very, very long list of story danglers that should be addressed.

Is this a pro or a con for a reboot?

    The art was great. This dialogue was terrible. Too much --- "witty repartee" where it's not appropriate. When a writer doesn't have a story to tell or doesn't know how to tell their story, they fall back on "banter." Trying to cram in as much dialogue as possible between every character instead of trusting the artists and respecting the character's dynamics.
    I loved the idea of making it an "Arc" about re-purposing her image. They may as well make an arc about exploring her identity before they finally nail one down, after all. A few intriguing interactions with Tony Stark there. But I guess we'll get an arc about "revolutions" instead. Shame.

    Everyone has the same voice and no one sounds like they're older than 25. Tony is the usual bottom of the barrel impersonation of his MCU self that he's been whenever he appears outside of his book now. How is any of that fine?

    I honestly like when The Avengers have to handle public relations at the same time as superheroics, reminds me of Busiek. Also kinda reminds me of Reeds run where he had a public image consultant.

This must happen before Avengers #1 'cuz right now the North Pole Avengers are generally persona non grata according to the latest issues.
