Seriously, jokes about how much of a fascist Carol's became because of that event aside, does anyone realize how weird it was for Marvel to make Carol practically the villain for the Civil War 2 event? For quite a while, Marvel had been trying really hard to make Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel their next big hit superhero and too an extent it was working. I've heard tons of great things about the Kelly Sue DeConnick run of Captain Marvel. Not to mention that Marvel Studios is planning a Captain Marvel movie, which would be the MCU's first movie starring a female hero, which more than likely will give them a lot of good press and money upon its release.
So with all that in mind, why would Marvel just sh*t the bed and make Carol the bad guy of Civil War 2? Nothing in that event or the majority of tie-ins made her side look like it was at all in the right. And given how much Marvel has been understandably called out for pandering too much to the far-left and more SJW-ish audiences, turning the character they wanted to be Marvel's Wonder Woman into the villain and having characters like Miles and Kamala go against her, characters who probably appeal more to that audience than Carol does, doesn't make any sense.
Seriously, with everything they'd been trying to do with Carol and everything they've been planning to do with her, why would Marvel make Carol the villain of their big event comic? They could have used any other character. Heck, I'm surprised they didn't have it be an X-men or Fantastic Four related character as the villain instead of her, given how bitter the feud between Disney and Fox was at the time. Can someone help me understand just what the thought process was here?
