Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman, Hazmat and the X-Men's mission to find Rogue and rescue Binary has technically been successful, and yet our heroes now find themselves in a worse position than ever, trapped at the mercy of a legion of Brood and a rogue Brood Empress. The Brood has now pushed Carol Danvers to her limit not once, but twice. What it unlocked the first time helped make Carol the Captain Marvel she is today. What has it unlocked this time? And will anyone - including Carol - survive it?

    Captain Marvel #49 is spectacular, and if issue #50 is this good, the series will cap off in sensational fashion. Read Full Review

    Its the end to the biggest Brood saga that weve had in years, but the ending just didnt hit the way I was expecting it to. We still have one more issue to go, but I hope that this issue doesnt have a negative impact on one of the strongest solo titles Marvel has had in years. Read Full Review

    Death is (hardly) ever permanent, so my only concern coming out of this issue would be if Binary is immediately brought back, the opportunity for the exploration of the emotional weight of this experience for Carol will be lost. Im interested to see how Carols new power level shifts the dynamics between her and other cosmically-powered (or godly) beings in the Marvel universe, and look forward to seeing what's in store for the character!

    Carol Danvers was shown stepping up and doing what she needed to do to put an end to the conflict with the Brood Empress. The ending could've been better if the Brood story running concurrently over in the X-Men series was integrated in a more seamless manner. The way Rogue played an important role in the story did help in making up for this. Overall, Captain Marvel #49 provided a satisfying conclusion to the "Revenge Of The Brood storyline Read Full Review
