    Captain Marvel is one of the best titles on shelves right now and every week, Kelly Thompson proves why. Captain Marvel #25 is another standout issue in a stellar run thus far, continuing the epic dystopian tale Thompson has spent the last few issues weaving together. There are huge revelations, excellent character work, and character chemistry that instantly brings a smile to your face.


    The final panel of Carol going binary isn’t just badass, it’s absolutely epic. Throughout the course of this one tale, Thompson has already provided a thrilling, dramatic story, but the cliffhanger promises much more is on the way. While her whole Captain Marvel run is good, this arc is easily one of the best, and it’s almost sad to think that it’s probably half over. All in all, Thompson’s writing knocks it out of the park with her character work and Lee Garbett’s art has never looked better.

    But Why Tho?

    Looking back on it as a whole, no aspect of Captain Marvel #25 fails to deliver in the slightest. Emotional moments, great characters, and an exciting send-off that sets up the next issue perfectly. The hype is real for this one. And I cannot wait to see how this story ends.

    Captain Marvel #25 isn’t the most action-packed issue of the arc thus far, but the narrative is more than enough to keep readers invested. With Ove’s supposedly true backstory revealed- Enchantress isn’t exactly trustworthy- he becomes an even more fascinating villain than he appeared when he originally told his story. And with the ending of Captain Marvel #25, it appears that Captain Marvel #26 is going to be a battle of epic proportions where Captain Marvel can really let loose.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Kelly Thompson delivers a powerful, intense and entertaining story in this issue. The plot is great. The characters and their dialogue are engaging and the action is amazing. The strength and determination in these characters connects to the reader and the backstory with Enchantress was well done in both its pace and motivation. Everything leads up to a fantastic climax that makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: Garbett and Ortega deliver some beautiful art throughout the issue. The flashback scenes are beautiful in their scope and emotion while the present day scenes are filled with energy in the action.

    “The New World” has been such an unexpected surprise, and Captain Marvel #25 doesn’t let off the gas in the least. Before we dive into the story though, it’s worth taking a second to credit the phenomenal visuals of artist Lee Garbett, Belen Ortega, and colorist Antonio Fabela, who absolutely deliver throughout the entire issue, and if there is ever a solo Brigid series (which there needs to be ASAP), this is the team you need to bring that to life. Tethering those showstopping moments are the delightful exchanges of witty banter, especially between Emma Frost and Brigid, and those who have followed along will get some welcome character payoffs to boot. While this arc might be ending very soon, Thompson, Garbett, and the entire Captain Marvel crew have only made me love this new reality even more, and I hope we get to return to it someday soon.
