In the comics, Carol Danvers has been shown to have great power, but Marvel has questioned whether there are too many.
With the passage of time, Carol Danvers, better known as Captain Marvel, has been gaining more and more power, even reaching being able to channel energy on a cosmic scale. However, as Peter Parker’s uncle famously said, “With great power comes great responsibility”; the heroine has starred in a lot of situations in which her powers have gotten out of control.
Nothing good comes of Captain Marvel losing control of her powers and the X-Men were about to find out. It is because of this that Carol has been reflecting on her abilities, his excess of power and the consequences of this. However, while this is something that fans have wondered for a long time, Marvel has finally officially questioned whether the heroine has more power than she should have in this universe.
Marvel questions the excessive power of Carol Danvers
To understand the complexity of this topic by Carol Danvers need to look back and remember all the catastrophic events that he has starred in with the excessive and unconscious use of his powers.
In the first place, Carol created a kind of energy clone that she called “Binary” and that she considered as her sister, but some time later she would be killed by a very powerful villain. This unleashed the emotions of Captain Marvelwho lost control of his powers and formed a black hole that nearly wiped out the X-Men.
But that’s not all, since the heroine has also made very questionable decisions, such as the occasion on which removed the powers of Ove, who is the son of Enchantress and Namor. With this action, Carol broke one of the main rules of magic, angering all the mystical beings in this universe.
Despite the fact that Captain Marvel managed to overcome the tests and challenges of these beings, the guilt and the weight of their accusations still rests on the shoulders of this womanbringing her to a point of reflection where she wonders if she really is cut out to be considered a hero.
In the words of Carol herself, she considers herself a “liability” for the universe, because if her powers get out of control, could destroy planets, extinguish many lives and bring the universe to ruin. This not only reflects the heroine’s little or no faith in her own qualities, but it is also a reminder that she has always been a rather dark character.
Kelly Thompson, creator of many Captain Marvel comics, is retiring, leaving the character behind forever. However, she will be in charge of design this story that will address much more about the mind and the heart of the heroine.
