Briefly Captain Marvel:
The costume merges alll the Mar-Vell costumes, the classic centurian looking one, the next 70s one, the Ms. Marvel one, the Ultime version (which the cartoon also used) etc.
SHIELD, because of Thor, Loki, and the Hulk, and the alien invasion from Avengers, creates SWORD. SHIELD's agency that monitors for aliens and prepares for defense against them. Director of SWORD if Agent Brand.
The movie would start with Carol Danvers
already Captain Marvel, already in the middle of a large scale battle with a giant Kree Sentry
. How did she get to this point? Battling a giant automaton to save the city? The movie goes all the way back to the beginning of the story, all through her side of the story. Carol is an America pilot, maybe even a SHIELD
agent. Maybe even a SHIELD agent on a SWORD
mission to track alien life (what with the appearance of Thor
and the Chitauri
on Earth suddenly).
She somehow, as part of her mission/investigation, stumbles Kree soldiers
(small army) chasing down a "traitor" Kree soldier named Captain Mar-Vell
. She helps him and the two become a team against the Kree soldiers, led by Yon-Rogg
. They battle the Kree and run
from them. Throught he coarse of the movie Carol learns who the Kree are, and why they are after Mar-Vell.
He is marked as a traitor because he fathered a child
, with the Skrull
. Its briefly mentioned that the Skrulls are a planet of rival aliens, bitter enemies of the Kree. Carol proves she is no average human as she not only holds her own against some Kree soldiers, but also saves Mar-Vell at least once. The two of them together defeat the Kree soldiers but not before they unleash the Kree Sentry on Carol and Mar-Vell. Mar-Vell gets in some good hits but gets killed, his last act is to give Carol his powers/technology. She puts on his armor, like he told her to, and it conforms to her body and alters her genetically. She then goes back into battle to stop the Sentry. And this is where the movie started. Against impossible odds Carol is able to defeat the Sentry robot, perhaps its the combination of her human DNA and the Kree DNA the suit genetically added to her's. Sadly though Mar-Vell has died, perhaps she can discover that he had sent his DNA and a copy of his mind into the Kree technology (like into the Nega bands
) or something... I don't know.
Captain Marvel movie credits scene: Carol returns to report everything to SHIELD and is approached by Fury or one of the Avengers to ask her to join their team.
I think her in the movies would be great. She is a strong female character that wouldn't necissarily be a She-version of another male character like She-Hulk or Supergirl. While there would be a male Captain Marvel, she becomes Captain Marvel in the same movie and is the main heroe at the end of her own movie. She could be like Marvel's Wonder Woman and be a great role model for young female fans, and help movie comics away from some of the ideas about comics and women.
