    Captain Marvel is a name that several characters have used (even ones from different publishers). One of the most famous Captains was Mar-Vell. In 1982, we saw the epic and touching story, THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN MARVEL. The story is held in high regards by many. Despite the popularity of the character, many fans demand that Mar-Vell remain dead.

    There have been other Captain Marvels. We even saw the apparent return of Mar-Vell in 2007, which turned out to be a sleeper Skrull agent during the SECRET INVASION.

    Marvel has just released a teaser proclaiming the return of Captain Marvel in July 2012. Speculation has already been running wild with who this Captain will be.

    The chances are Mar-Vell won't be returning from the dead. We know that pretty much no one is truly dead when it comes to comic book deaths but because of the impact of the story and the 2007 (fake) return, Marvel probably wouldn't go there again. There are Mar-Vell's kids, Genis-Vell and Phyla-Vell along with Hulkling or Noh-Var as possible candidates.

    The one person that deserves to take the role is Carol Danvers, also known as Ms. Marvel.

    == TEASER ==

    This is a rumor that surfaced after the teaser was released. It's a rumor that I hope turns out to be true.

    Ms. Marvel has long since shown her place as one of the mightiestAvengers. Her origins are closely tied to Mar-Vell's as well. When Carol first appeared, she had overcome the boundary of equality by doing many jobs considered to be a man's job. Not only had she been a fighter pilot and CIA Agent, she also led her her own SHIELD strikeforce team (Operation: Lightning Storm) as well the Mighty Avengers.

    When she was working with Mar-Vell (before the world knew who he was), she was exposed to radiation from a Kree device. Mar-Vell tried to shield her with his body and the result was her gaining powers similar to his. Her original costume even sported the same symbol as Mar-Vell's.

    Besides her long career as a hero, she recently accomplished another amazing feat. Her 2006 series lasted 50 issues. For a series driven by a female character, that's incredibly impressive these days. It was extremely unfortunate when her series ended and many readers were left wondering why Marvel canceled it.

    It's time for Carol to step back into the spotlight. For all her strengths, it's a waste to have her sit in the back of comic panels with nothing really to do. Even when Tony Stark gave her leadership of the Avengers in MIGHTY AVENGERS, she didn't get to do a whole lot. As part of the New Avengers, she's barely featured in the stories and you can easily forget she's even part of the team. Let's see  her get a promotion from "Ms." to "Captain." Changing the name might even make her more appealing to those few that struggle with purchasing comics solely based on a female lead.

    No Caption Provided

     With AVENGERS VS. X-MEN coming up along with the return of the Phoenix Force, it appears that Carol will somehow be using the powers she had when she went by Binary and was part of the Starjammers. Perhaps she will be undergoing some power increase which would make her even more worthy to graduate up to Captain. She's proven she can carry her own title before and let's see her evolve into an even more powerful character.

    I agree, instead of constantly bringing back dead/lost characters, it would be refreshing to have someone pick up the mantle and continue the legacy.

    I love Carol, and even if she's not really promoted as such, I see her as Marvel's lead woman (as Wonder Woman is to DC, Ms. Marvel is to Marvel). Yes please!

    I would love to see another Carol have another series since there isn't a female solo series in Marvel. X-23 was doing great, and they cancelled that series. Maybe if Carol has one, it could replace X-23 for me.

    I agree she should have her own series (I enjoyed her mini-series a lot) but I think they should try making her into her own character first, rather than simply taking up the mantle of another hero.

    Eh, I like her where she is. People forget that being captain marvel means leaving earth all the time. I'd rather she be on earth in the new avengers every month. 
     
    It takes a certain type of character to stay interesting when they fly out into the cosmic obscurity like the silver surfer or nova. 
     
    Kinda bugs me that in two news post about this no one has mentioned Rick Jones at all. I mean i suppose the fact that they made him the new A-Bomb a while back takes away from his likelihood, but still. I feel like he should be considered a contender for possibly being Captain Marvel.

    I’ve never really been a big fan of characters changing their Identities or taking on another person’s identity. There have been plenty of situations or reasons created that explain the changes, whether it’s for avoiding enemies or carrying on the legacy of other characters it always seems kind of weird. The identities of the characters are supposed to be important to the characters but it seems like there is always someone who is willing to ditch their identity. I guess it’s because they spend all this time more or less as one character building an identity or reputation and then they seem to drop it without a second thought. You would think they would at least struggle with the idea of losing part of themselves.

    That said at least Ms. Marvel has history with Captain Marvel and she’s not a character who just happens to have similar powers.

    Anything would be better than bringing Mar-Vell back from the dead. You can even make Volstaag the next captain if you want to, but please, please, no more resurrections. Enough with resurrections.

    Oh, and on some unrelated note, killing Hal Jordan again and then leaving him dead would been doing GL a huge favour.

    Killing shallow characters, now there's an idea.

    So my fellow nerds were angry when they thought another resurrection was coming our way. Then, they say they'd prefer a resurrection when it's supposedly Ms. Marvel who will finally be respected and upgraded as a whole.

    Clearly the community has some work to do.

    Hate this character, I felt like she was forced down my throat back when I read the Avengers several years back, pulled from the reserve characters and name changed constantly from Ms. Marvel and Binary and Warbird and then I'm supposed to accept her as a leader? no thank you.

    Carol Danvers is not a "Captain Marvel"!

    Way back in the '60's she was there with Mar-Vell and she has been a great character for many years now.

    But, never a captain!

    Not being sexist.

    Why Ms. Marvel shouldn't be Captain Marvel.

    She is boring. Hal Jordan-level boring. But unlike Hal, she doesn't have an incredible supporting mythos and I doubt she will get one soon.

    you are so spot on with this one, Carol has earned it, and would make a fantastic replacement.

    I really hope they don't revive Mar-Vell, after Barry Allen's resurrection, this was the last great death that shouldn't be tampered with for integrity's sake.

    Terrible idea. Should go to genisis or Noh- Varr. Ms Marvel is the baddest chick in marvel, she can kick some serious booty. Yes she should have her own series. (she's one of the reasons I read Mighty Avengers)

    But there are others in line that are more in need of the spotlight, plus its their birth right.

    I'd prefer Monica Rambeau to be awarded the title, but Ms. Marvel is a very strong contended. I'd be happy with either of them.

    I really liked her solo series, it dragged a little towards the end but it was very enjoyable. Would like to see her evolve a bit as a character however and this could do it.

    However this seems to me like a forced attempt to bring the character back to spite DC with them renaming him SHAZAM. Or that could just be my cynical side talking

    Either Carol Danvers or Monica Rambeau would be my choice. It depends on what they are doing with the character. It will be very important to set up a strong story, with good supporting characters and a strong sense of her character.

    That would be a good move to have her become Captain Marvel and to have her own title again. My only thing I would do is change her costume, maybe revise it to look a bit like her original while simultaneously updating it.

    If she is going to get a power boost somehow via the Phoenix Force or some other way, look out Marvel U.
