      True, but this video's focus is Carol Denvers! I wanted to know more about her personality, so this is a letdown. Guess we both didn't get what we wanted...

    It is amazing how the new movie has been vilified as some recent feminist takeover of the Marvel universe. So many do not know this story goes back to the 60s.

      The entire cast essentially knew it was gonna be a film with heavy feminism. Which is why half the comment by the men in the movie other fury were written to be sexist.

      +Baba The movie was trying to make the point that all men are dicks though. Even the director admitted that in an interview.

    • Baba
      Baba 5 days ago

      +Taryn M I wasn't implying that women would've gotten that line specifically. I was implying that there probably would be some jerk dudes who would cop an attitude or treat a woman differently in that situation.
      Not saying all men just saying some men likely would. And it's hard to say what exactly would've happened back then so there's definitely discrepancies o both sides.
      People win be dicks, but not everyone is a dick.

      +Baba I'm in the air force. There is more men. But I work on the flightline and not a single female pilot I've talked to has gotten that line. The air force has been letting women do more than other branches since inception. That, and hazing isn't that big of a thing in that sense. Saying something like that would have gotten him paperwork, even in my dad's day in the late 70s.

      It's not as bad as people say but it's pretty bland. I think Cap Marvel deserved a little more of UMPH if you know what I mean. I don't think it lives up to her comic book self

    1: So basically Captain Marvel has always been a controversial character good to know
    2: Wether or not the actress playing ms.marvel wants me to see it or not. I am considering her character is (as far as I can see) a direct character between the avengers and x men. Basically she could start an x men crossover with the avengers

  • Marcelo Capel Junior

    So, I have never really seen anything of Captain Marvel / Mrs Marvel because of the lack of comic availability where I live. The firs and only time I've seen Carol Denvers was when I played the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games. It is interesting to finally learn about the character. I am tentatively optimist to see the movie, a lot of people have been raising red flags about it so I am not sure yet.

    • Mie R

      By "a lot of people raising red flags" are you referring to the people who are so angry at this movie's release they're frothing at the mouth? Don't you think it's suspicious that they have such a strong hatred for this movie that hasn't even come out? They have an extremely obvious agenda, and are out to get this movie. You'll notice a lot of them are also Star Wars "fans" who hate Disney for The Last Jedi, they were also behind the planned boycott for Black Panther last year.

      ++Thanhtacles What a load of bollocks. First of all the correct term you're looking for is Gary Stu.
      Tony has weaknesses which showed many times when he was beat up in every one of his own films. Oh, did you forget when Tony got his faced bloodied up by Captain America? Or Tony's drinking problem? How about the fact that Tony's suits can run out of power.
      How about the fact that Captain America is still human which means he can die.
      Or Thor losing his hammer and eye fighting his Mary Sue sister Hela.
      I can keep going.
      The fact is Captain Marvel has no weaknesses.
      Try again.

    Ms. Fanservice: Carol for a long time was practically the poster girl for this before her "promotion" to being the new Captain Marvel. Her first Bare Your Midriff costume was originally derived from the red-and-blue Kree uniform of Captain Marvel, but after emerging from under his shadow she was given a distinctive new black-and-gold leotard costume with a lightning bolt motif; this costume get many Male Gaze. This was lampshaded by Moonstone/Dark Ms. Marvel in Avengers: The Initiative when she asks Tigra just how Carol wears these outfits, and by Eventually it was finally averted with her latest outfit, which aside from being form-fitting, is about as non-fanservice as you can get and Amazonian Beauty: Although her physique varies Depending on the Artist, she is a big woman who has very strong muscles, toned broad shoulders, muscular yet voluptuous body, and standing in at 5'11" and over 160 lbs. Frank Cho in particular makes her look like Cammy. Her newer titles have her looking less overtly curvy, and far more muscular, than before.
