I recommend this to anyone that loves a good fun story, specially because all the characters here are amazing and very well written. This issue makes you want more and thankfully we are getting more Captain Marvel. Higher Further Faster!
Thompson has no idea how to handle Carol. Nuclean Man is a forgotten villian from the Fantastic 4's 60s era days. All he does is caveman rheotric and Carol is just "MUH STRONG WAHMAN"!
The entire thing with Riley the Reporter is dropped. Steve Rogers (Captain America) and Iron Man and Rhodey are religated to standing around looking moronic while She-Hulk and Spider-Woman try to save Carol. That is absolutely disgusting and a disservice for Captain America, Iron Man and War Machine.
Nothing bad happens to Carol or the women trapped in the barrier world because plot shield (dues ex machina and all that jazz). The one man that is working with them — Thompson can't decide if he's good or an evil double agent.
In the end Carol saves the day but Riley is suddenly remembered and writes a nasty op-ed in Ms. Magazine about Carol.
This book is lacking in everything. It's garbage.
I'm a huge Captain Marvel fan but I will not blindly gobble up everything and claim it's the best golden poo that came out of a donkey's backside.
Positives: No mention of Secret Empire or Stevil/HydraCap
Negatives: Everything that wasn't mentioned in the positives
Like many trades, there is a brief recap on the title page to bring readers up to date on the state of affairs. And the state of affairs has evidently been rectonned. Carol is now the daughter of a kree warrior woman, an accident activating "latent" powers, and with a brother that required her to take time of superheroics to care for after a near fatal accident. I wasn't bothered by this since it happens pretty frequently. It does mean that this is yet another soft reboot and so it's a solid action story without much consequence. Nuclear man lures Carol into a portal in MidTown. Many familiar heroines are trapped on the other side within a time dilation so no one realized they were missing. They need a leader for their rebellion against the misogynist Nuclear Man: Carol.
The nest part of the book is Carol telling Rhodey, who she had been dating before he was killed in the painful, lackluster "Civil War II", that she is glad he's back from the dead. Only in comics! LOL! Overall, the story has Carol coming our of her sabbatical with fists flying. Hopefully the next volume will be higher, further, faster.
