    If this really were the last Captain Marvel story, then it would be one hell of a way to go out. The reunion of writer Kelly Thompson and artist Carmen Carnero is dynamite from the very first page, and together with colorist David Curiel deliver a visual tour de force that will delight any Cap fan. Thompson brings to light all of the best part of Cap’s mythos and supporting cast with a story that features surprising reveals, endearing relationships, and an ending that hits hard but is no less hopeful. In short, it’s everything you would want in an ending for the Boss of Space, though we’re perfectly okay with the real end not coming anytime soon.

    Recently we have had the “Life of Captain Marvel” mini which shaped the current book, the book that features the current adventures, and so it makes sense that the powers that be get round to Carol’s demise. Experienced comic fans will no doubt see the All-Star Superman or The Justice League Fatal Five animated movie touches. Influences are one thing; ideas may be even imitated, but style remains and it is this style that goes to show how great a writer Kelly Thompson can be, especially with this character.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Stirring and emotional, Kelly Thompson delivers an almost pitch perfect story about the resilience and heroism of Carol Danvers. This story is touching in its focus not on Carol as a powerhouse, but as Carol Danvers the hero. Not only are there some great emotional moments throughout the story, but Thompson eases the reader into the ending in a way that makes it both a surprise as well as confirmation of the lengths Captain Marvel will go for the people she loves and the sacrifices she will make for others. A well told and satisfying story.

    The Art: Carmen Carnero provides some stunning art throughout this issue. The story is very character focused and that is reflected in art that showcases the characters laughing together, fighting together and being expressive in their conversations with each other. The action moments look incredible and the effects to bring to life Carol’s evolution of her powers is beautiful.

    Captain Marvel: The End may just be one of a series, but it truly did justice to Carol’s character. Her future may be slightly bleak in this version, but you’ve got to admit that there’s something really beautiful about the choice she made in the end.

    Carmen Carnero, who illustrated the first couple of arcs of the current run of “Captain Marvel” fills penciling duties on this issue and she does wonderful work with the help of the wickedly talented David Curiel on colors. The pair does stellar work together, delivering absolutely gorgeous moments constantly, from Hazmat’s radiation absorption to Jessica and Carol’s reunion, to Carol’s sacrifice. By far the coolest visual this issue is Carol’s newfound post-Binary aesthetic; it’s stunning to see her new ethereal state, literally becoming a beacon for the Marvel universe. The writing this issue is strong, but the art drives things home in deeply important way.
