Captain Marvel Is the Strongest Avenger, Confirms New Series

Captain Marvel’s upcoming new series confirms that she is the strongest Avenger. This October, Carol Danvers returns in a brand-new ongoing series, with a brand-new outfit based on Captain Marvel’s wildly popular Hellfire Gala outfit. With this bold new era comes new friends and foes, including a cosmic being who sees Captain Marvel as the universe’s most powerful heroic force.


Marvel shared a first look at October’s Captain Marvel #1. The new book will be written by Alyssa Wong and drawn by Jan Bazaldua. In addition, superstar artist Jen Bartel has provided a sleek new outfit for Captain Marvel, one based on Bartel’s Hellfire Gala look. Wong and Bazaldua are hitting the ground running, putting Captain Marvel through the wringer when she meets what Marvel’s press release calls an “overwhelming omniversal entity.” This unnamed entity sees Captain Marvel as the sole obstacle between it and its “vision of total annihilation.” It now falls on Captain Marvel to find a way to stop the entity and save the universe. Marvel’s press release reveals that Carol will make new friends along the way, some that can be trusted – and others that cannot.

Captain Marvel Is the Only Threat to an Omniversal Being

In the Marvel Universe, there are many levels of power – and an omniversal being beats pretty much all of them. This implies that Carol’s new rival exists across every reality – and if she’s its only threat, then her power level is truly off the scale. It makes sense that this reveal comes now – Carol has just been through a time of trial and loss, even losing her new ‘sister,’ the energy being Binary. However, she’s emerged more determined than ever to fight the good fight, and was recently elected to lead the Avengers by Earth’s heroes. Now, she has another vote of confidence – albeit one that means she must be destroyed.

Captain Marvel’s Final Form Has Found a Worthy Challenge

Captain Marvel has had an incredible character arc, rising from obscurity to become the chair of the Avengers. Making Captain Marvel a hero on the omniversal level is a huge step, but one that makes sense with her powers. Captain Marvel can absorb and channel vast amounts of energy, and even takes on new forms to contain it. Recently, Carol ascended to her final form – a glowing transformation fans originally saw in Captain Marvel: The End. Given that Captain Marvel’s prior forms were among Marvel’s most powerful beings, it makes sense that her upgrade comes with this shocking step up.

Captain Marvel’s motto is “higher, further, faster,” and her new place in the Marvel Universe is certainly living up to that promise, as a wildly powerful new being singles her out as the only Avenger who can stop it.
