The Uncanny Carol Danvers returns to space – and to the X-Men?!
A mysterious degraded message from Rogue has arrived at the same time that Carol’s emergency beacon begins screaming with cries from Binary, and that cannot possibly be a coincidence. Carol assembles a team of allies, including Polaris, Gambit, Wolverine, and Psylocke, bent on rescue, but what they find instead is a dangerous old enemy bent on revenge.
Comic CrusadersIf i have said once, I must have said it a million times, Captain Marvel under the writing of Kelly Thompson is consistently the best book Marvel are putting out, month in month out. Thompson mixes up genuine threat, X-Men excepting, with a sense of family that displays true emotions from the characters.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: A tense and entertaining story from Kelly Thompson. I love seeing Carol interacting with friends and how it humanizes her as a character. I love the tension throughout the story and her conflicted feelings about Rogue and the Brood. The issue progresses really well and ends with a great cliffhanger that makes me want to see what happens next. The Art: Davila delivers some beautifully detailed art in the issue. The action is visually thrilling and the characters look great. I love the transition between the battle and the party and the last page was shocking and brilliantly done.
Comic WatchThompson continues on her winning streak with Carol and her world, giving us a tale that takes us to the furthest reaches of space, and up against one of the most terrifying alien races in the Marvel universe. I hope the ending is as polished as this issue was.
ComicBook.comKelly Thompson has shown on several occasions the ability to maximize a team and let its individual members shine, and that is once again on display in Captain Marvel #44. (...) At times the artwork can be a bit inconsistent from page to page, but it didn't happen often enough to take me out of the adventure, and Captain Marvel and the X-Men continue to be a winning combination
Comic Book RevolutionCaptain Marvel #44 moves at a solid pace to keep the reader engaged. Tough decisions are made that are handled well with how Captain Marvel and X-Men react to them. Hopefully, the next issue opens up more on what the Brood are truly after in their latest plot.
Comic Book RevolutionCaptain Marvel #44 offers a rather generic story. There is nothing particularly interesting or different to be found here. It is your typical surprise at the end that everything you read was just an illusion. The flow of the story is clunky. The scene transitions are awkward, and the entire read is choppy.
