Hero Overview
... You're not monsters. You're the best chance those kids have. Which is why you have to keep trying to make a difference. No matter how hard it gets.
~ Ms. Marvel.
My name is Captain Marvel... I am an Earthling and an Avenger. But today I stand as one with the settlers of Torfa, who claim this planet and its resources as they were freely given in the aftermath of the Behemoth disaster... They are a peaceful people, but I am a woman of war. If you move against them, you move against me. I am willing to die here today, for this cause. I have made my choice... Now you make yours.
~ Captain Marvel.

Ms. Marvel (real name Carol Susan Jane Danvers, and Kree name Car-Ell), now known as Captain Marvel is a super heroine from the Marvel comics and universe. She is a human and Kree hybrid who became a pilot for the United States Air Force, and became a superheroine after unlocking her powers from the Psyche-Magnitron. During her heroic career, she later became a member of the Avengers and prominent ally of the X-Men.

She was created by Roy Thomas and Gene Colan, and first appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes # 13 in March of 1968.

History

Carol Danvers was the oldest child and only daughter of her family, Carol finally decided to defy the sexist views of her father and join the Air Force after graduating high school. Reaching the top of her class, Carol was named the head of the Cape Cod division of NASA, where she met and befriended the Kree superhero Captain Mar-Vell. Eventually, Carol was captured by Mar-Vell's nemesis, Colnel Yon-Rogg, who intended on using her as bait to lure the space born hero to his doom.

During the fight, Carol was exposed to the energies of a Kree Psyche-Megatron, which was a sort of alien Cosmic Cube, turning thought into reality and giving all the power of a Kree warrior. Developing a split personality as a result, Carol became the superhero, Ms. Marvel, wearing a feminized version of Mar-Vell's red and dark blue uniform, and fighting crime. Eventually, the Ms. Marvel personality was destroyed, leaving Carol with the Ms. Marvel powers.

After a brief membership in the Avengers, Carol lost her powers to a then-evil Rogue, and replaced them with energy based abilities, going by the name, Binary. During the House of M event, Carol regained her original Ms. Marvel powers, and has taken up the name once more.

Powers and abilities

Due to her genetic altering, Ms. Marvel possesses superhuman strength, speed and agility, mild invulnerability, flight, and from her time as Binary, energy absorption and redirection.

  • Superhuman Strength: Carol is superhumanly strong and is listed at a normal level of roughly Class 200 tons, half her original Binary power levels. However, since she is able to absorb various types of energy, she can use this energy to temporarily increase her physical strength to levels similar to that of her time as Binary, in which form she reaches beyond class 600 tons.
  • Superhuman Speed: She is capable of running and accelerating at high speeds which a human could never achieve.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Carol's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. As Binary, she could physically exert herself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair her. She was reduced to roughly half this after losing her Binary powers. However, she is capable of channeling absorbed energy to further increase her stamina to higher levels.
  • Superhuman Durability: The tissues of her body are considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than those of an ordinary human. Carol is capable of withstanding high caliber bullets, great impact forces, falls from great heights, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining any injury. While channeling the energy she absorbed, her body's resilience is extended to an even greater degree.
  • Superhuman Agility: Carol's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Her reflexes are heightened in a similar manner and are superior to those of the finest human athlete.
  • Supersonic Flight: Carol is capable of propelling herself through the air and the vacuum of space at tremendous speeds. Although her top speed is unknown, she flew at three times the speed of sound for several hours, so it is likely she can go much faster.
  • Cosmic Awareness: Part of her original power set as Ms. Marvel, Carol was subconsciously able to anticipate the moves of her opponents, though this power was not exactly reliable and activated randomly. After Rogue robbed her of her powers, she was subsequently transformed into Binary. After these powers faded, it seems that Carol's Seventh Sense returned. T'challa theorized that when the Kree Psychi-Magnitron that gave Carol her powers, that she inherited some of Captain Mar-Vell's abilities during exposure to it. In that sense her travels across Exospace and the like bolstered this aspect of her powers to see the cage outside of reality that's binding The Marvel Universe.
  • Photonic Beams: Carol can fire powerful concussion blasts of photon and stellar light energy similar to Dragonball's Ki-Blasts, from her hands and fingertips.
  • Energy Absorption: Her body is capable of absorbing various types of energy for the purpose of temporarily enhancing her own physical attributes. She can augment her strength and energy projection up to the force of an exploding nuclear weapon. If empowered by enough energy, she can assume her Binary form again temporarily. The absorbed energy increases the potency of her metabolism, allowing her to quickly regenerate from catastrophic wounds. Minor Molecular Control: She can use absorbed energy to transform her regular clothing into her costume and vice-versa.
  • Binary Mode: Carol's most powerful form. As Binary, Carol was once linked to the power of a white hole and was able to generate heat, light, radiation and access all other forms of energy along the electromagnetic spectrum on an almost solar scale. She also had minor control over gravity. She could breathe in space and travel at the speed of light. After this link was severed, she could no longer do so on the level she once had. However, the capacity for this power still remains within her.

Abilities

Carol is also a skilled military aircraft and starship pilot and she extensively trained in armed and unarmed combat during her career in the USAF.

Quotes

First there was nothing, then there was everything.Then the good Lord saw fit to bring me into the world to kick the asses of those who need it most.
~ Carol Danvers during Infinity Saga (2013).
Easier said than done, buster, because even with my back against the wall -- I don't give up!
~ Ms. Marvel.
There is only one thing I want to do more than crush that moonstone and snap your neck... I want to see you redeem your self.
~ Ms. Marvel.
You screwed up, Avengers. That's human. What is also human is the ability to learn from those mistakes. To grow. To mature. If you do that -- even a little -- then perhaps what I went through will have a positive meaning. It's your choice.
~ Carol to the Avengers.
You've destroyed the Avengers! All of it, it's gone!
~ Captain Marvel to Scarlet Witch.
I'd tell her that her wish comes true. She really does get to fly. And she'll fly higher and faster and further than she even dreamed.
~ Carol Danvers.
There's a lot of holding back in my life. Not using what I have, or at least not all of it. Keeping myself in check. Most days require a measured response. Restraint, not release. Not today.
~ Carol Danvers.
The Man who calls himself Captain Marvel saved my life earlier tonight -- and I take my heroes very seriously!
~ Carol Danvers.
Have you ever seen a little girl run so fast she falls down? There's an instant, a fraction of a second before the world catches hold of her again... A moment when she's outrun every doubt and fear she's ever had about herself and she flies. In that one moment, every little girl flies. I need to find that again. Like taking a car out into the desert to see how fast it can go, I need to find the edge of me... And maybe, if I fly far enough, I'll be able to turn around and look at the world... And see where I belong.
~ Carol Danvers.
You have no idea what a real leader is. A leader has to project confidence. Fight for what she believes in. But never stop questioning, wondering how to be better. You take in everything... and make your call. You thought isolating me would make me weaker? Buddy, you don't know me too well. All my life I've had to rely on myself, trust my instincts and convictions when others doubted me, and be prepared to back them up. You didn't hurt me with what you did. You gave me what I needed to win.
~ Captain Marvel to Eshu.
Tony, you %$#&! This is not happening!
~ Captain Marvel to Iron Man about the second civil war.
This is for the best. Go find Thanos. Stop him. Free yourself of this pain. And if we ever do see each other again, I do hope it's as friends.
~ Carol to Gamora.
When you're a soldier, when you go to war, you see people die. Your friends. People you're closer to in some ways than your own family. In training. In battle. Even suicide. And it's easy... it's easy to ask what it was for. If any good came of it. This is Eliot Burke. Army veteran and security guard at Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. His wife, Vivian, works there too. They met on the job. She's a geneticist working on a promising treatment for leukemia in the P.E.G.A.S.U.S. labs. They're alive today -- along with hundreds of others -- because of Rhodey. And because of you. What's keeping me from falling apart... is that I know Rhodey died doing something good. Something he'd consider worth dying for. I know what Tony said to you. And I am not for once second discounting his grief. But I want to give you another perspective. You can help us stop criminals and madmen before they hurt anyone. You can tell us when natural disasters are about to happen. We're going to go out there and put our lives in the line anyway. You can give us the gift of knowing it's for a reason. The best and bravest people I know are prepared to take that risk. Not just prepared - -we want to. But to do it right -- to do it the best way we possibly can -- we need you.
~ Captain Marvel to Ulysses Cain.
I made my choices! They define me! They made-- No. I make my decisions. I make my reality. And my reality is... I am... Captain Marvel!
~ Captain Marvel.
