Unsurprisingly, Marvel is relaunching Captain Marvel with a shiny new #1, two months before her big screen debut. The new series, written by Kelly Thompson with art by Carmen Carnero, is set to launch in January and will see Carol Danvers back in New York after spending time in space defending Earth against alien threats.
Talking to The New York Times, Thompson had this to say about her approach to the character.
"You really want her to be accessible to new and younger audiences who are going to see the movie, fall in love and want to seek out other Captain Marvel stories. But you really want to respect the fans who have loved the character for decades. I think there's a razor's edge there."
Captain Marvel #1 is set to release in January, while the movie Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson is set to release in March.
