This is the sort of stupid, sloppy, nonsensical crap that makes people look down on comic books. ( )

In previous comics, Captain Marvel used Ulysses an Immortal who can see into the future to predict future events and prevent catastrophic events. But then she uses him to arrest those for crimes they haven't committed yet, including Miles Morales who supposedly kills Steve Rogers. Tony Stark has long been against Ulysses and he seeks to take Morales back. Iron Man and the Avengers and Magneto and his X-Men go head to head with Captain Marvel with the Ultimates, Alpha Flight, Storm's X-Men, and the Guardians of the Galaxy. The Immortals seek to stop the fight after Ulysses has a dire vision, but when Iron Man goes after Morales Captain Marvel delivers a punch to him that nearly kills him and leaves him in a coma. The fighting ends and Ulysses goes off to become a cosmic entity. Captain Marvel is hailed as a hero by many.

Now they are making a movie about her and she has to put up with the invasion into her life it causes because they are funding the Alpha Flight Space Station which is in dire need of funds. Danvers is having nightmares of what happened to Tony and is seeing a mandated shrink to help deal with it. Suddenly, she senses that a Kree child is in danger. She flies to the settlement camp on Earth and finds her being kidnapped by a shapeshifter. She saves the child and brings her back to the space station.

She names the child Bean since she doesn't seem to have a name. They find out that other Kree children have been kidnapped and someone, likely Hydra, is building a weapon of some sort using the Kree. Captain Marvel is having problems though. Her powers have started becoming erratic and uncontrollable. She'll need help figuring this out, but she lost a lot of friends with what she did. Will any of them help her? This book goes aways to redeem Captain Marvel's reputation after the pretty despicable things she did in the other comics. She's truly suffering for her bad decisions that I believe she regrets making. It will be interesting to see what direction this series takes the comic in. I highly recommend this book. ( )

She returns to her helm as Alpha Flight commander with the world cheering her on, but has Captain Marvel become someone she no longer recognizes? She'd rather focus on the job, so when her crew discovers that a shady character is hunting for alien-refugee children, Carol jumps on the case.
