    I'm pretty sure all of the moments I'd like to see won't ever be in any movie. And outside of the ones that won't fit MCU Carol, she didn't really have any 80s/90s moments that I can recall. Destroying Broodworld was one.


The Brood might make a good nemesis for the next movie. Unless Marvel thinks they're too creepy.

    After that, I can't recall her doing anything until Starblast, but that wasn't much iirc, and then she came back depowered for her Warbird phase.


I didn't realize she spent time with the Starjammers. Maybe Marvel could give a nod to that by showing her with a team or crew of semi-heroic aliens.

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

    The rape, obviously.


Oh wow do I agree. Massively.

    And no, it's probably best not to play musical codenames or costumes.


Probably true. But I wonder if MCU Captain Marvel will be as powerful as the comic book Binary was.



The rape story was truly disgusting and shameful. I honestly would love to know what both the writer and the editor were smoking when they thought this was a good idea because it must have been some quality stuff they smoked.

However, the rape story was essentially retconned and washed away and is now filed by Marvel under W.W.N.S.O.T. (We Will NOT Speak of This)

So I really don't think we have to worry about her getting raped in this or any other movie, put it out of your minds and relax. If they did have her get raped they would have to undo it just like Hasbro had to undo the death of Optimus.

Also given that she is the MCU's first female solo movie hero, I doubt she will be raped.

As to her Binary power levels, well Binary was basically a Phoenix-knock off, and I still could swear I read somewhere that she was the original choice to be Phoenix but it was changed to Jean Grey. Still checking on that....

However she was linked to a white hole as Binary and thus gained tremendous cosmic powers. Nowadays that link is gone but if she absorbs enough energy she can go Binary again as when she faced the Phoenix in AvX.
