Her new position on the Avengers and her awaited MCU debut have also shot Captain Marvel into the spotlight. It kind of feels like we know everything there is to know about Carol. However, that’s about to change with THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1! Marvel has announced a new origin miniseries, THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL. This five-part series will showcase parts of Captain Marvel’s unknown past. Writer Margaret Stohl (THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL) says her series is “telling the other side of the story, of how [Carol] came to be.” THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL is “a chance to show a softer side to Carol.” -Margaret Stohl, ABC News FCBD AVENGERS #1 cover revealed! THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL: From Page to Screen This isn’t just any origin series. THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL is setting Carol up for bigger things. Executive Editor Tom Brevoort says the series will “no doubt become a seminal story about the character, and set her in place for her role in AVENGERS and elsewhere throughout the Marvel Universe.” I personally think by “elsewhere” Brevoort means the MCU. THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL is the perfect comic for anyone who wants to know more about the character before seeing the film. Origin stories help people who might be a little less familiar with comics understand characters. I think having this series come out before Captain Marvel’s movie is ingenious. It will bolster excitement for the movie and keep people from going into theaters unaware of who Captain Marvel is. Cover by J.

This issue will hit shelves on July 4th!
