15 Avengers We Want to See in 'Avengers 2' & Beyond

Real Name: Carol Danvers

Species: Human (Mutate)

Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Joined the Team In: Avengers #183

Powers/Abilities: Super-strength/speed, flight, cosmic awareness, solar energy absorption/projection.

Who/What Is She: Carol Danvers debuted in comics as an officer in the US Air Force on a restricted military base, where she met Captain Marvel under his human alias, “Dr. Watson Lawson,” and was caught in an explosion of a Kree device. The explosion melded her genetic structure with Captain Marvel’s, thus giving her all the abilities of a Kree.

Why We Want Her: Besides the fact that she’s a tough-as-nails, badass lady in the military, she provides the Avengers with a bit more diversity than, say, Mar-Vell, her male counterpart.

Additionally, in the Marvel Universe, she’s one of the most recognizable female characters, partly because her name is synonymous with the company. At the moment, she’s going through a bit of a comic book redesign as Marvel attempts to make her character more popular and integral – might they be preparing her for a movie debut in the not-too-distant future?
