Alex Ross’s take on the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel). He clearly used a Scarface-era Michelle Pfeiffer as the basis for her.
You know, I didn’t like the new outfit when I first saw it, mostly because it replaced the excellent black Dave Cockrum “female fury” outfit, and also, with the Mandarin collar, it looks very Star Trek the Next Generation..but boy, has it grown on me! In fact, I think it is very striking.
Also, here is my prediction: in her movie adaptation, the finale will be Carol changing to her Binary form, in an anger driven “No boom” (You know, a no boom? You yell out “No!” And there is a psychic boom). Changing to Binary form is her version of going Super Saiyan, a power we learned she lost at the beginning of Busiek’s Avengers run in the late 1990s. Storytelling logic makes it the most obvious way to structure the finale knockout punch.
Gotta love that Dave Cockrum jet-black “female fury” outfit!
