    Sometimes I lament that comics just don't seem to have lengthier runs and are cut short. You rarely see series make it to issue #50, let alone get the chance to wrap up their run instead of being cut off abruptly. I'm so glad Captain Marvelwas the rare modern comic series to make it four years strong. Kelly Thompson has so much to be proud of with this run and Carol fans have had so much to love in the last four years. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel #50 is understandably heavy at times, but also brilliantly funny and hopeful, and it's a lovely conclusion to what will be considered a classic run on the character. Higher, Further, Faster indeed. Read Full Review

    Kelly Thompson ends her historic run on Carols longest running title as Captain Marvel, and she proves why shes going to go down as one of the best of Carols writers. Thank you for the journey. Read Full Review

    A fine capstone to the best Carol Danvers run of all time, and Pina and Lopez bring their a-game. I'm incredibly excited to see Kelly Thompson do Birds of Prey, but I'm really going to miss this one. This being the ultra-rare modern comic that makes it to issue #50, I take it I'm not alone there!

    This entire run is probably the best run in the characters history. Between the constant character development and the supporting cast the writing is solid and doesn't seem forced

    Kelly Thompson's run completely redeemed this character after years and years of writers not being able to escape the mud the character was dragged through during Civil War II. I think a big reason why Thompson was able to do this was because she always writes character-first. This can give some of her books this sort of eclectic feeling, which may put off some readers, but when it works and when it pays off, it does very well, and there's not a better example than this specific run. An issue writers tend to struggle with when it comes to characters that are meant to embody specifically feminist ideals is making sure that the character feels genuine. I get that we're way behind the eight ball here, especially given the rising tide of anti-f more

    The majority of Captain Marvel #50 takes place during a party for Carol, thrown by Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, to help her cope with the loss of Binary. A who’s who of Marvel characters from Carol’s past attend, including a fun scene with Monica Rambeau/Photon and a very much alive Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in a nice nod to the upcoming The Marvels movie. After avoiding the crowds to grieve on her own, Jessica surprises Carol with a trip, courtesy of Doctor Strange, to explore her emotions. There is a touching scene between Carol and her vision of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, where we see two women discussing what it means to hold immense power. Ultimately, Carol realizes that her powers are a gift and she gets to decide what her legacy be more

    What the hell was this supposed to be? The final issue and all Kelly could up with was a party and a whole bunch of dialogue of characters telling Carol how great she is. Come on, give me a break. An over-sized 30-page book with absolutely zero action. I'll repeat my other reviews by saying she should have been off this book 20 issues ago. She's had nothing new to say about the character for some time. The book has been wallowing in her feminism, rah-rah girl power group for some time. This was never meant to be a team book, but it became one. Now I heard that she is taking over Birds of Prey- I wonder why? I just hope they just don't sit there and talk about their feeling and tell each other how great they all are. I'm going to try it, but more

    This is what a woke of a art looks like. Making her a cringe karen personality, giving her a black boyfriend don't have anything to do but only just there for the sake of black representation and interracial relationships. Really sick and their of this nonsense, when it comes to white guys they make Carol Danvers ultimate feminist and independent girl power but when it comes to black guys they make her super sumbmissive house wife for some reason. Judging by the writer being female it is just understandable i guess.
