Captain Marvel's magical tribunal doubles down as Carol struggles to break free of her prison using only what she came with - namely, herself. But if Earth's Mightiest Hero can't solve this puzzle, she'll be Captain Marvel no more, which was maybe the master plan all along?

    While I can't say this comic has transformed me into a Captain Marvel stan, I really enjoyed when Kelly Thompson is bringing to the superhero. With stellar art by lvaro Lpez and Juan Frigeri, this is certainly a comic run to pay attention to. Read Full Review

    While messing with magic has rarely gone Carol's way, it has led to some wonderful storytelling and discovery of what makes Captain Marvel so great to begin with, and thankfully it's not over yet. Read Full Review

    When the focus is on Carol Danvers the story that Kelly Thompson and Alvaro Lopez crafted for Captain Marvel #40 is at its best. The entire trial that Carol has been put on by a magic tribunal has pushed her to be challenged in ways that captivate you as the reader. Its just unfortunate that how strong Carol's story is that when the spotlight is momentarily shifted back to Earth you are reminded that the Binary storyline may have run its course. Hopefully Thompson and company are able to find a way to lift Binary's story to match the interest there is behind Carol Danvers' own story. Read Full Review
