Captain Marvel Trailer 2
Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gene Colan, Danvers first appeared as an officer in the United States Air Force and a colleague of the Kree superhero Mar-Vell in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968).
The character has also been known as Binary, Warbird and Captain Marvel at various points in her history. She has been labeled “Marvel’s biggest female hero”, and “quite possibly Marvel’s mightiest Avenger”.
In 2012, Danvers’ incarnation of Ms Marvel was the highest ranked female character (at #11) on IGN‘s list of the “Top 50 Avengers.”
Larson is also scheduled to reprise the role in the fourth Avengers film.
