I've been fighting with one hand tied behind my back. What happens when I'm finally set free?
~ Carol Danvers to Supreme Intelligence.

Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, is a superheroine who is the titular protagonist of the 2019 superhero film Captain Marvel, and appears as one of the titular deuteragonists of Avengers: Endgame. An Air Force Lieutenant-turned-Colonel, Danvers had ran afoul of the despotic alien race; the Kree. A Tesseract-powered light engine explosion gave her vast cosmic powers, thus she became Captain Marvel.

She is portrayed by Academy Award winning actress Brie Larson, who also portrayed Beatrice Leep in Hoot, Mason Weaver in Kong: Skull Island, and Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Larson also played Norex when he disguised himself as Carol. McKenna Grace and London Fuller portray the character younger, with Grace having previously played young Caroline Forbes in The Vampire Diaries, young Emma Swan in Once Upon a Time, young Sabrina Spellman in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and will portray a young Daphne Blake in Scoob.

History

Origin

Childhood

Carol Danvers was the daughter of Joseph Danvers, and played many sports as a child (e.g. baseball).

Military Service and Gaining her Powers

Carol would join the United States Air Force, and befriend Maria Rambeau, and became her daughter's godmother, Monica. Danvers would meet Dr. Wendy Lawson, and became a contributor to Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. on the Light-Speed Engine. During one test flight, both her and Lawson were struck down by unknown assailants. Lawson informed Danvers of who she was, and attempted to destroy the engine, but was killed by the assailant. When Carol went to destroy the engine herself, it exploded, and she absorbed its powers and was knocked unconscious.

The assailants were Starforce, a Kree unit led by Yon-Rogg, who decided to take Danvers as she could be some use since she absorbed the energy. She was taken to Hala where Yon-Rogg transfused his blood into her, and placed a Photon Inhibitor to suppress her powers and memories. Danvers was told that she was a Kree that had amnesia due to a Skrull attack, and went by the name "Vers" due it being the last letters on her damaged dog tag.

Captain Marvel (2019)

I'm not gonna fight your war! I'm gonna end it!
~ Captain Marvel to Talos.

Defeating the Kree

When Ronan arrived with his fleet, Danvers flew into combat by destroying ballistic missiles. After destroying the entire fleet, Ronan decided to retreat, and referred to Danvers as "a weapon". With Earth safe from the skies, Carol returned to the surface to face against Yon-Rogg. He attempted to start a fight in hand-to-hand, but Danvers blasted him in the chest, stating she had nothing to prove to him. While dragging him to his pod, she instructed him to tell Supreme intelligence that she as coming to end the wars and lies.

Carol returned to the Rambeau's home where they celebrated victory over the Kree, and was nicknamed "Marvel" by Fury. Carol then returned him his pager, having modified it so that she could call him.

Impact on Fury

After Captain Marvel left Earth, Fury realized that Earth needed an arsenal of superheroes who could protect it from threats. Fury decided to create the Avengers Initiative after Danvers' nickname, and the Avengers were assembled in 2012. The Avengers fought against many threats, fighting an Norse God, alien army, and a destructive artificial intelligence, but Fury didn't contact Carol with the transmitter. It's unknown why he didn't do so, but it's assumed that he didn't think the threats were that high, or she was unable to return due to her own adventures.

Call for Help

Where is Fury?
~ Captain Marvel to the Avengers.
Nick Fury would send a call for help to Danvers after Thanos successfully collected all of the infinity stones, and decimate half of the entire universe. Receiving the message, Danvers returned to Earth and located the page at the New Avengers Facility, where she meets the few survivors: Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, and War Machine. Danvers entered the facility and encountered the Avengers, asking them where Fury was.

Avengers: Endgame

Listen, fur-face. I'm covering a lot of territory. The things that are happening on Earth are happening everywhere, on thousands of planets.
~ Captain Marvel to Rocket Raccoon.
Captain Marvel rescues Iron Man and Nebula after the two get stranded in outer space after leaving Titan. Later, after Hulk/Bruce Banner uses the Infinity Gauntlet to undo the snap and bring everyone back to life, Captain Marvel joined the rest of the heroes in their fight against Thanos and his army of Chitauri, Outriders and the Black Order. Danvers fought against the Mad Titan himself, but was eventually knocked down, but witnessed his defeat. Danvers attended Tony Stark/Iron Man's funeral, honoring his sacrifice, and reunited with Nick Fury. 

Quotes

I keep having these memories. I see flashes... I think I had a life here, but I can't tell if it's real.
~ Danvers on her amnesia.
Vers.
Intelligence.
Your commander insists that you're fit to serve.
I am.
You struggle with your emotions, with your past which fuels them
~ Supreme Intelligence and Captain Marvel.
I have nothing to prove to you.
~ Captain Marvel to Yon-Rogg after she is easily beaten with a photon explosion.
I can't go back empty-handed.
You won't be empty-handed. I'm sending you with a message. Tell the Supreme Intelligence that I'm coming to end it. The war, the lies, all of it.
~ Yon-Rogg and Captain Marvel.
