Warning: Minor SPOILERS for Captain Marvel #11
The past several months have seen Captain Marvel reduced from one of the most powerful cosmic heroes alive, to a weakening hero being replaced by a younger, better version of herself: Star. But all that is about to change, once Carol Danvers has her full powers restored--with her true enemy directly in her sights.
It's been a long time coming for fans hoping to see Carol finally push back against the latest threats, enemies, and deceitful plans that have ruined her life. Including the device planted on her heart to steal her superpower (yes, just like in the Wolverine movie). Those powers were then funneled to a reporter with dreams of being a superhero, and who was willing to leak Captain Marvel's half-alien biology to the world, just to make sure she was in no position to accuse a brand new hero of being a secret villain. Carol got the last laugh by ripping the device out of her own chest, preparing for the fight her fans have been dying to see.
Carol's plan to rob Star of her powers by removing the aforementioned device didn't take into account how insane and evil Star is willing to be. Draining regular humans surrounding them in Times Square instead of Carol, Captain Marvel #10 ended with potentially dozens of innocent deaths. But the official preview for Captain Marvel #11 shows Carol working to end this monster fast--reminding Star that stealing power isn't the same thing as earning it in the first place. Take a look at the preview pages below:
It isn't clear how this showdown will actually turn out. Ordinarily, we would assume Carol emerges victorious and exposes Star as the fraud and villain she truly is. But with confirmation that Star is getting her own Marvel comic, and the promise that Captain Marvel is going to kill an Avenger, all expectations have gone out the window. Leaving readers to hope that before some giant twist arrives, Carol can at least give Star the beating she's got coming. Fans will have to wait and see how this fight turns out when the full issue releases next Wednesday. But for now, be sure to read below for the final credits and plot synopsis:
