- do you hope to see in the movie?

Conversely, what 80s or 90s Carol Danvers moments do you hope NOT to see in the movie??

Please don't talk about current trailers at all. Current trailers are off topic.

Please don't talk about the 21st century at all. The 21st century is off topic.

Please limit your comments to 80s or 90s Carol Danvers moments in the comics that you either do or don't want to see in the movie.

Do you want to see her as Binary (first appeared 1982 per Wikipedia) even if only briefly? Do you want to see her as Warbird (first appeared 1998 per Wikipedia) even if only briefly? Do you want to see her as Ms. Marvel (her identity when the 80s began per Wikipedia) even if only briefly?




The shame of it is - most of her iconic moments are bad moments, and therefore won't (and shouldn't) be featured in the movie. That's what makes me shake my head that they chose her to be the subject of the first female movie (not counting Elektra). Moments like:
- The rape
- The birth of a child conceived by rape
- The mind-controlled extended period of rape
- Rogue turning her into a powerless vegetable
- Her bout with alcoholism (this is less iconic but still).
- Her courtmartial in Busiek's Avengers.

I think she had her best moments with the X-Men (as Binary), but that won't be shown in the movie either.

I didn't read her original series with Claremont as the writer. Did anything of note happen to her in that period?
