Descriptions

Captain Marvel: “As Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers has spent months in space protecting Earth from alien threats big and small, but now it’s time for Earth’s mightiest hero to come home. New York City has never looked so good. But every re-entry comes with the unexpected, and Carol is about to hit a whole lot of unexpected.” (via Comixology)

Miles Morales: Spider-Man: “Balancing his normal life, school, parents, etc…and super-heroing has never been easy, but when the Rhino and a cadre of mysterious criminals start plaguing Brooklyn, things take a dark turn. And Miles doesn’t even know the half of it yet.” (via Comixology)

 

My Thoughts

Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is, well, a marvel. It’s funny and quick witted, an engaging blend of action-adventure and charming sincerity. What Civil War II did to Carol – killing off Rhodey and severing her from her BFF Jessica Drew – broke my heart so badly that I have more or less avoided her ever since.
