Welcome aboard the Great Derelict!
This week Andy is joined by the returning Fiendish Dr Will to guide us through the myriad worlds of Marvels Cosmic Universe, with a quick dive into the background of Captain Marvel, the Kree, the Skrulls and a cat names Chewie.
You can hear more of Will on the Realm of Nerdgard
Dr Will's recommends the following comics if you would like to read more:
Marvel Super-Heroes (1967) #12-13, Captain Marvel (1968) #1-18 – Stan Lee, Roy Thomas The introduction of Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers, and the conflict with Yon-Rogg. Culminating in the explosion that turned Carol Danvers into Ms Marvel (even if it did take another 8 years before that was written about!)
Avengers (1963) #89-97 – Roy Thomas The Kree-Skrull War – A Mar-Vell story rather than Carol, but likely important groundwork for the film. A confusing culmination of a lot of different plot threads; it is a well regarded storyline
Ms Marvel (1977) #1-14 – Chris Claremont & Jim Mooney Carol’s first foray as a powered being – dealing with amnesia and split personality, and working for J Jonah Jameson.
Uncanny X-Men (1963) #156-167 – Chris Claremont Excellent 80’s space adventure with xenomorphs, and Carol’s transformation into Binary The Death of Captain Marvel (1982) – Jim Starlin A graphic novel covering the death of Mar-Vell from cancer. Very moving, and covers a lot of ground with reminiscences and flashbacks. Ties into Thanos as well.
Ms Marvel (2006) #1-17 – Brian Reed A good taste of who Carol is and what she can do.
Captain Marvel (2012) #1-6 – Kelly Sue DeConnick This is where Carol took on the name Captain Marvel, instead of Ms Marvel or Warbird.
Captain Marvel (2014) #1-6 – Kelly Sue DeConnick Awesome space adventure stuff Bonus:
Ms Marvel (2014) #1-5 – G Willow Wilson When the young Kamala Khan realised she was an Inhuman, Ms Marvel (i.e. Carol) was her inspiration for who to be. Awesomely good stuff.
