Life hasn’t been easy lately for Carol Danvers. Shortly after her return to New York, Captain Marvel and a few other heroines were trapped in an alternate realm. Once Carol broke free, she had one night to celebrate before being outed in the press as a half Kree warrior. It’s a fairly new revelation in Carol’s life, but it’s already enough to send her on a downward spiral.
In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Captain Marvel #8, Kelly Thompson and artist Carmen Carnero make things even harder for Carol. She’s struggling to maintain her sobriety in the face of the backlash against her. But she’s also facing some physical symptoms that suggest her powers are failing her.
Here’s the official description from Marvel: “CAPTAIN MARVEL: FALLING STAR! From the moment she returned to full-time Avengers duty in New York City, Captain Marvel’s life has been nonstop…and slightly weird. But she’s about to take on a brand-new threat — and a very old one!
When her Kree heritage is exposed to the world in dramatic fashion, Carol goes from most beloved hero to public enemy number one overnight — and it’s pushing her to the darkest edge. Can she save the day even while the world turns on her? Does she want to?”
