Maybe you could get Wonder Man in there? And, by extension, Grim Reaper?

That's so much harder than it ought to be.
It is... but to add to the list:
Michael "Ace" Rossi - This is Carol's Air Force ex-lover guy. Lots of history between the two. The Duncan to her Veronica Mars, if you will. I think he died recently in Ms. Marvel's series, but he was a long time supporting cast member, even through her X-Men years.

Dr. Michael (ugh, hate it when they do that) Barnett - This was Carol's therapist who became more than friends with her (real professional, guy). Mystique killed him way back in Ms. Marvel's original series.

Yon-Rogg - (filed under "Other Kree") Mar-Vell's superior officer, ostensibly the guy in telling Vell whatever it was that he decided not to do.

The Supreme Intelligence - (also filed under "Other Kree")

I think SWORD is valid, especially because the adaptation went so well in the cartoon, with Abigail Brand, Henry Peter Gyrich (another longtime X-Verse visitor) and Cidren.

It'd be interesting to take Moonstone from a purely Kree perspective (I think the stone is originally Kree in 616 as well.) Wonder Man doesn't flow with that so well, but with Moonstone subbing in for the whole Masters of Evil, Wonder Man can definitely fall under Ms. Marvel's umbrella. Interesting.

Edit: What would really be impressive is if they could some redeem the Marcus/Immortus storyline into something that wasn't completely deplorable.

Wow. Is it that bad? I picked up a trade with this random arc with Dr. Strange and a publicist, and some crazy time jumping wizard. I was hoping the whole thing wasn't like that.

Bare legs would be great, there's no problem/fear with that. Perhaps you should read up on Thigh High Boots (third paragraph, or the fetish section), if you have any other questions about why that particular clothing item is so closely identified with prostitution.

I want Ms. Captain to succeed, they just have a lot of work to do. Since becoming a Superhero in 1977, she's been raped, depowered, become an alcoholic, made a fool of herself, court marshaled for criminal endangerment....

They tried to make her a major player in 2005-2009, but she kind of just wound up as Tony's side kick with enormous hooters and butt cheeks hanging out vs a character with her own niche.

They either need to work really fast, or come up with original material to make her a character who can stand on her own in a solo film.
Boom. That's it. Everyone seems to have their 'thing' that they do, except Carol.

We've also discussed the idea of her niche being the human liaison between Earth and the cosmic side of the MCU, especially if she were to work for SWORD, a la A:EMH. Unfortunately, Peter Quill might very well be filling that niche instead.
He might, but it's more likely that he'll be doing the opposite, and representing humanity to the cosmic side, or at least, that's what I'd dream and prefer! But I think her thing with her parents can really hit home as an emotional subplot, and that niche works, her as the alien go-to girl. With her in SWORD it works even better, and even moreso in the MCU where no one has the alien thing 'down' like they do in 616.
