While Carol spends her time fighting a winged goon, her doctors learn that her powers will fry her memories. The drama’s in her flaw, a telling trait: she’s too willful not to fly & fight, and damns the consequences. Also note the only male this arc is its villain, the Kree Cap’s original nemesis.

The script’s in that breezy contempo mode, but closer to S&tC than Buffy. It helps that she stocks her cast with women while delivering pure superhero comics. How pure? Carol’s always had the classic Superman power set, but now unable to fly, she’s leaping tall buildings instead!

Cap lifts a subway & fights a foe on the rooftops. It’s straight-up super-comics, which contrasts well w/ the loose, flowing art that’s way off from Marvel’s current house style. I’m not sure about a twist that has Carol grounded due to a brain lesion, tho’ it forces her into interesting decisions.

Soy wastes an opportunity to impress in a giant robot battle, tho’ his manga influence makes the romantic lead (a castmate from Carol’s Claremont era) suitably dreamy. When the plot has Danvers literally absorb Rambeau, it’s awesomely campy, making ‘self-aware’ comments superfluous.

Having adopted an Avengers mag, KSDC gets a scripter for the required team-up btw current & former Captain Ms! Danvers helps Rambeau (of the Avengers & Nextwave) solve a deep-sea mystery. It’s astonishing how a conventional superhero comic can be feminist just by having women converse!
