    PopMatters - Gregory L. Reece Sep 1, 2015

    Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps is a solid addition to Marvel's big-deal summer crossover event, "Secret Wars". This far in, it doesn't yet feel as "out there" as some of the other books, like Planet Hulk or Ghost Racers, and it doesn't seem as central and important as others, like Infinity Gauntlet or Guardians of Knowhere. It is, however, a lot of fun, a solid story, and an interesting ride. Read Full Review

    Just as they point the story in an upward direction, DeConnick and Thompson deliver an eyebrow raiser of an ending with a final panel depicting the "that" of Carol's interrogative a few panels earlier. Next issue promises to be a doozy of a fight. "Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps" #3 is a transitional issue, shifting from setup to delivery as well as from planning to doing. The status quo changes from the start to the end of this issue and, judging by that final panel, the changes aren't done yet. This has been a fun extension of the Carol Danvers mythology and this issue ratchets things up a notch as DeConnick, Thompson, Lopez, Loughridge and Caramagna embed the series deeper into the "Secret Wars" saga.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 27, 2015

    Compared to most Secret Wars tie-ins, Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps reads like a book very much beholden to its event mothership. Even when things are happening, such as here in issue #3, the book never really feels like its gaining any sort of momentum. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 26, 2015

    While there are some moments of enjoyment in this issue, there are also unfortunately too many reminders of what the series is bound to. The world in which these heroes live is not one of empowerment or fun, but rather just one of a concept that does not fit into the Secret Wars world very well, a square peg of Captain Marvel for the round hole of Secret Wars. The resulting story is about as good as two fit together but really is nothing very much special and even less so, takes away from the good that the writer has done with the character in the past years. Secret Wars is heade towards a reboot for the Marvel Universe, and the best that we can hope is that Captain Marvel comes out well on the other side, as she is mostly wasted here. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Aug 31, 2015

    Ultimately, Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps #3 is an above average book, but it doesn't quite enter "good" territory. While the art is fantastic, the story is hindered by its overreliance on the makeup of Battleworld, diminishing the stakes. Fans of Carol will still find plenty to enjoy, but new readers are likely going to be underwhelmed by this outing. Read Full Review
