Carol Danvers before she became Ms. Marvel

Gaining Powers

Carol Danvers first appeared as a member of the military, presumably Air-Force. She was working in a joint military-S.H.I.E.L.D. facility dedicated to space exploration when she called in a friend of hers, Janet van Dyne. When Janet arrived with Hank Pym, Carol was greeted happily, where she told them that she called to get Hank's help.

Carol and her friend, a scientist named Dr. Phillip Lawson, showed Hank an object they had viewed on one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s telescopes. She had stated that she personally believed that it was extra-terrestrial. But, not wanting to appear crazy, she wanted to obtain an expert's opinion, Hank Pym to be specific. When the object crashed through the telescope and landed on Earth, Carol grabbed a gun, should the object be dangerous.

She led Janet and Hank into the woods, where the object landed. On the drive there she told Janet that it wasn't nice to lead Hank around like she was. Upon arriving at the crash site, they were soon attacked by the object, revealed to be a Kree Sentry, an alien robot designed to wipe out a troublesome population before settlement. It aimed at her, due to the fact that she carried a weapon. She expressed the wish to shoot at the Sentry, but was stopped by Hank. The Sentry then took aim at her once more and fired. Upon Carol being disarmed, the Sentry turned and headed for the observatory.

Carol drove ahead and evacuated everyone but, as she was trying to evacuate Phillip, the Sentry attacked. Attacking the Sentry once more, she told Phillip to get out of the observatory. But, due to a wayward blast by the Sentry, a power grid exploded behind them. Phillip quickly shielded her with his body as the energy there passed through them, unknowingly merging their DNA slightly. Carol passed out as Phillip was revealed to be a Kree by the name of Mar-Vell.

After another battle with the Sentry, Mar-Vell got Carol to the hospital, where he was greeted by the Avengers. While answering their questions he stated that he wanted to help, that humans had so much potential. He stated that he believed that Carol deserved to live, before being corrected by Iron Man that he meant the human race. After destroying the Sentry, with help from the Avengers, Mar-Vell visited Hank, who was injured in the battle, and Carol in the hospital. He told Janet that he was sorry for what happened, and then looking at Carol's sleeping form, said to watch over them. After Mar-Vell's departure and Hank waking up, Carol was seen to be awake and floating above her bed, showing that she had obtained powers similar to Mar-Vell's.[2]

Becoming Ms. Marvel

She was later seen working for S.W.O.R.D. and assuming the mantle of Ms. Marvel. She chose her name due to her respect initial respect of Mar-vell. When the Kree came back with more armed forces, Carol flew into action to defend the Earth from commanders such as Ronan the Accuser and Yon-Rogg. After facing the Kree once, they proved too strong for any individual hero. Luckily, the Avengers had arrived to help out. Unfortunately, one of them turned out to be a Skrull in disguise and ended up starting the fight between the Kree rather than trying to stop it. Carol proved herself worthy of being on the team when she stood against Mar-Vell and helped stop the Kree's plan.[3]

When the Avengers had taken in homeless man, Michael Korvac, Wasp had called in Carol after Korvac began attacking the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Ms. Marvel attacked Korvac but was knocked out and taken to Central Park where the two teams teamed up and surprised Korvac while him and Danvers had been fighting. Korvac eventually disappeared into deep space once his wife told him he had became a monster.[4]

Leaving the Team

While the team was at a restaurant celebrating Carol officially joining the team, they noticed Griffin rampaging in the streets of New York. They left to go take down the flying beast but Griffin went straight for Carol and the two fought in Central Park. Later when they returned to the mansion, Tony had accused Hawkeye of possibly being a Skrull that had infiltrated the team. This caused a battle to ensue when Carol threatened to arrest and interrogate Clint. After the battle had calmed down, some of the Avengers, including Carol, had chosen the leave the team since the trust between them had faded.[1]

Skrull Invasion

When Carol had responsded to a Skrull ship hyper-speeding into Earth's atmosphere and crashing near Wakanda, she was shocked to discover it had been the Avengers. They explained that they had been captured by the Skrulls after their adventure on Asgard and had finally escaped. They told her that the Skrulls would be going after the Vibranium mound in Wakanda and that it was up to them to protect it. She was then caught up in a battle with the real Black Panther and the Wakandans before the real Avengers had arrived and helped take out the imposters.[5]

Carol, Janet, and Clint traveled to Washington DC, where they were ambushed by a group of Super Skrulls. While the Avengers were restrained the Skrulls used the fake Captain America to encourage the planet to surrender to the Skrull Empire. However in rapid succession a group of heroes and villains led by the real Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor all arrived to fight the aliens. Freed; Ms. Marvel and the others battled the Super Skrulls, and defeated the superpowered extraterrestrials, each disabling the aliens. The reunited Avengers gathered back at the mansion, though Cap did not participate in the celebrations, as he realized it would take long to rebuild the broken bonds on the team.[6]



Seemingly those of Carol Danvers of Earth-616, but possibly even stronger, being 'as tough as Thor and almost as strong as the Hulk', and actually managing to briefly overpower the latter, as well as handily defeating Super Skrull versions of both Thor and the Hulk. This suggests at least Class 100+ strength.


Seemingly those of Carol Danvers of Earth-616.
