Captain Marvel #6

Comicscore Index
Generally favorable ratings

Based on 7 critic ratings.


The Dark Elf King Malekith and his allies have conquered Earth! At least, they THINK they have — and they’ve divided the spoils accordingly, with the Enchantress raising an army of the dead and staking her claim on South America. But if the Enchantress is expecting a royal welcome, she’s forgotten what she’s dealing with — Earth isn’t going down without a fight. And as Captain Marvel leads DOCTOR STRANGE and BLACK WIDOW into the land of the dead, nothing about this mission will be what our heroes expect.

    Tie-in issues can be a bit hit or miss, but thankfully Captain Marvel is the former. This isn’t required reading mind you, but if you do check it out you’ll get a laugh out loud adventure that brings out the best (and worst) in Cap, Doctor Strange, and Black Widow. Writer Kelly Thompson delivers some wonderful punch lines throughout, and while we’ve seen Carol parried up with Widow and Strange individually, throwing them all together presents some prime opportunities for comedy and even some character growth. Artist Annapaola Martello does a nice job filling in for Carmen Carnero, and while overall this isn’t a must buy, Captain Marvel fans will not regret picking it up.

    But Why Tho?

    So, even if you, like myself, have not been keeping up with the War of the Realms crossover I would not hesitate to pick up this book. Despite the story being taken over by the company wide event the creative team has managed to keep it infused with all the things I’ve come to love about Captain Marvel.

    Kelly Thompson gives readers a War of the Realms tie-in that can be read by regular readers of the book regardless of whether they are invested in the Event or not. It’s the start of a fun Freaky Friday team-up that is already a lot of fun. Recommended.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Fortunately for fans that aren’t interested in reading the main War of the Realms title, this tie-in is as self-contained as a tie-in can be. There’s a blurb at the front of the book explaining what the War of the Realms is, and since Malekith isn’t the main antagonist in this story, that summary is enough. Regardless of being a tie-in issue, this is still a great Captain Marvel story.

    Comics: The Gathering

    In Captain Marvel #6, the creators rely on a somewhat threadbare premise to put the cherry on top of their tie-in sundae. The art is lean on detail but vivacious, and the script is scrupulously witty. If it relies on a “safe” plot twist, it also shows that such storytelling tools get used (and risk getting over-used) because they make it easy to build a thoroughly satisfying story. And that’s certainly the result in this case.
