    Carol Danvers fans should be pleased with how the tale ends. It's a satisfactory conclusion and a touching final scene which sets up future issues and also brings Captain Marvel full circle as she discovers who she is and her purpose in life. A new beginning is on the horizon and these past five issues make us hungry for more of what Mighty Marvel can bring their Kree warrior. And, of course, we are all in anticipation for what the first Captain Marvel movie will bring us in just a few months. Read Full Review
