Ms. Marvel

Carol Danvers adopted the name 'Ms. Marvel' in the initial rendition of her origin narrative. It was taken from 'Mar-Vell,' the superhero from whom she inherited her abilities. 4)

The original iteration of her outfit sparked outrage since the weirdly situated cut-out was deemed exceedingly impractical by readers and designers alike. The outfit was next altered to hide her tummy, and finally to her trademark black semi-leotard. 5)

While she did not appear in the film, she was an important element in Marvel's Civil War. She was initially pro-registration and on Iron Man's squad. 6)

In one narrative, she loses all of her abilities after being touched by the mutant superhero Rogue. Rogue absorbs her powers and memories, and even maintains elements of Captain Marvel's abilities permanently once 'Danvers' powers are restored. 11)

James Rhodes

She gained her abilities by absorbing the genetic blueprint of Kree superhero Mar-Vell. As a result, she was a flawless Kree-human hybrid. 13)


She was designed as a feminist icon, representing the ambitious, career-driven, and powerful woman. Even her previous name, Ms. Marvel, has a deeper meaning. At the time her character was created, some women were using the more ambiguous salutation 'Ms.' (rather than the more suggestive 'Mrs', or 'Miss'), making it a subtle yet bold statement in itself. 14)

Several Versions

Her character has had several incarnations and nicknames. For example, when she was a member of the X-Men, she was dubbed 'Binary'. In later comics, she was also known as 'Warbird'. 15)
