A Heroine To Admire
There are many things the wonderful world of the Marvel universe can provide for its readers and viewers: stunning superheroes with incredible superpowers, dastardly villains with the most evil intentions, a complex society with a million different overlapping facets…but one of the things that has been most lacking in the world of Marvel movies is a franchise with a female superhero lead. DC has had a female superhero lead in Wonder Woman, and as everyone knows, everything DC can do, Marvel can do better (or something like that – it is beyond the scope of this article to delve into the DC vs. Marvel debate!). So Marvel is finally coming out with a badass female leader in its upcoming movie, Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel features a heroine of the same name, at least for her superhero persona – her mild-mannered alter ego is Carol Susan Jane Danvers. Captain Marvel belongs to the Avengers, and has been hailed as potentially the mightiest of that formidable group. Marvel will in fact continue to use her character in the upcoming Avengers movies as well. Captain Marvel is a character worthy of emulation by women and girls everywhere who are excited to finally see one of their own in the role of a Marvel superhero lead. In terms of powers, she blows a good number of other (male) superheroes completely out of the water. Her super strength has been compared to that of the infamous Hulk, and of course, that strength is combined with traditional superpowers of invulnerability and flying. She also has increased stamina and endurance, and because of her unique genetic situation involving a combination of both human and Kree DNA, she is immune to basically any poison that would affect a human and any toxin that would affect a Kree. She is certainly not to be messed with and can keep pace with the very best of the Avengers.
