Captain Marvel #2

Comicscore Index
Generally favorable ratings

Based on 12 critic ratings.


The classic Fantastic Four villain MAHKIZMO has taken over Manhattan’s Roosevelt Island and turned it into an apocalyptic wasteland!

When CAPTAIN MARVEL ends up trapped there and cut off from the rest of world (including any Avengers-shaped reinforcements!), she’ll need to build her own team out of allies, old and new — SPIDER-WOMAN, HAZMAT, ECHO and a man known only as SOM — in order to start a revolution to free the island’s civilian inhabitants.

With that kind of backup, Mahkizmo should be toast — but not everything is what it seems on this island…

    But Why Tho?

    Captain Marvel #20 delivers everything it sets out to. Humor, action, and heart are all rolled into one awesome package. Can’t wait for the next issue to see where the story will go from here.

    The new creative team continues to impress, with Kelly Thompson writing Carol true to form and Carmen Carnero’s art looking astounding throughout. Attention must also be paid to the vivid color job by Tamra Bonvillain and the letters of Clayton Cowles, which relate the dialogue without obscuring the art. One of the best new offerings from Marvel comics this year and hopefully one that will find an audience with the upcoming fans sure to come to the comic shops after the movie is out.

    Captain Marvel hit the ground running with its first issue, and the book keeps up that momentum here. You wouldn’t think Nuclear Man would make for an interesting villain, but somehow Kelly Thompson manages to make it happen, and she’s used this Roosevelt Island dystopia premise to significantly highlight Carol’s most adored aspects. Her sarcastic wit, powerhouse abilities, and leadership all come through here, and it only helps that Thompson’s handle on Spider-Woman is just as solid. Carmen Carnero’s visuals are top-notch throughout, and we’re loving the new character designs as well. If you’ve been waiting to give Captain Marvel a chance, there’s never been a better time to make it happen.

    You Don't Read Comics

    It’s the end of the world as Carol knows it. Or is it? In Captain Marvel #2, written by Kelly Thompson with art by Carmen Carnero, Tamra Bonvillain, and letters by VC’s Clayton Cowles, Carol is faced with an “alternate reality” and the chance to lead a revolution.


    The team behind Captain Marvel is off to a great start and they will hopefully continue to improve. As a pilot, the sky’s the limit for Carol, and ideally, for her story as well.

    Comics: The Gathering

    Captain Marvel #2 feels like a demonstration of the status quo the creators want to set for this volume: brisk, exciting, tough, compassionate, and funny in a charmingly subtle way. It’s put together with formidable skill both visually and narratively. If future issues hold to this level of quality, this whole series is headed into must-read territory.
