    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 21, 2016

    This book is incredible and a must read for everyone. This is setting up Captain Marvel to be one of the better series to come out of Civil War II. You may of disliked her during the event, but this redemption story is very down to earth and well deserved. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 24, 2016

    The arc where we follow Carol's mental state and journey to self-acceptance is currently more entertaining and interesting than the bounty hunter plot, as there's just a lot more to chew on. The artwork brings a solid mix of realism and grounded character work to a spacey and ethereal setting. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Dec 21, 2016

    CWII focused on infighting Carol had with Jessica Drew, Kamala Khan, and others. This issue shows how losing those relationships, over ideals, takes emotional tolls in life and work. “Winning” becomes an empty notion. It's an exploration of women, friendships, and communication that has desperately been missing. Add to that quality, dependable art and you have something worth checking out. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Dec 23, 2016

    In many respects, this comic acts as an epilogue for Civil War II. Carol Danvers is such an ambitious character, wanting to do more than just tie up villains and drop them off in front of police stations. That ambition shows in both her ability to punch things and her desire to ensure the danger doesn't punch back. It sets her apart from many heroes and Brie Larson would be wise to reference The Mighty Captain Marvel #0 in preparing for this role. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 2, 2017

    This is a great issue for people to jump in on and this comic really breathes new life into a character that had fallen on some hard times. The origin of Carol Danvers that we are given is a really touching and human tale and couple it with some amazing art and decent introduction and we have got ourselves one hell of a zero issue. I really enjoyed this book and I hope it is able to build on the momentum that it has received. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Dec 21, 2016

    “The Mighty Captain Marvel” #0 is a return to form but has a lot of room to grow. I'm eager to see these plot points expanded upon and particularly interested in how Carol handles all that she's dealing with. This has potential to be something very special. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Dec 21, 2016

    As a member of the Carol Corps, I love Carol Danvers, and I go into every book with high expectations. It's been tough for most of the creators to follow the high bar Kelly Sue set for Captain Marvel, and this issue just didn't knock my socks off. It just felt overall like the team is trying a little too hard to get the fans to buy in to this new series. But I know this is a #0, and I'm saving my real reactions for issue #1. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton Dec 27, 2016

    Space opera, superheroes, and psychological problems with a helping of guilt, daddy issues, and baseball jokes show that Mighty Captain Marvel #0 is its own comic book unlike the previous volume, which operated too much in the shadow of both Ultimates and Civil War II. The art could be better though. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Dec 22, 2016

    Overall, I'd say this book didn't reach out and grab me by the lapels and there is certainly more thrilling stuff to read that's out this week (I'm sure Chad has found some indie comic he'd love to recommend). But that's not really the job of a #0, that's what a #1 is for. Captain Marvel can be an interesting character and there are plenty of stories that she can fit into that I'd love to read, this book does a great job of introducing you to that character and hinting at what this story may be but unfortunately little else.

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Jan 17, 2017

    Reading this feels like someone half heartedly trying to meet you halfway. Marvel throws the internal conflict in the book, but She showed no signs of having these issues at the end of the event, and she certainly didn't seem as broken as Marvel seems to want us to think. It feels like Marvel is trying to garner sympathy fot a character that honestly does not deserve it at the moment, and that becomes very clear. The art is not bad, but there isn't really special about it. The writing is standard for Marvel these days, and it kind of just ends up falling flat amidst the things it wants you to feel, and what you actually feel reading it. This is a book only to pick up if you really really like Captain Marvel and you can't think of not getting it.It doesn't help her case much and it doesn't make those who dislike her after the war like her any better. This is a book I'd recommend a pass on. It is not worth the price. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Dec 21, 2016

    This issue only offers the slightest hints at Carol's psyche" something that I'm truly yearning to dig deep into as Civil War II winds down. Thus, unfortunately, at this moment in time, it's hard to call this comic anything but perplexing and strange. The losses of Civil War II are adding up and the person who should be effected the most is Carol Danvers. Read Full Review

    Great first issue to see where Carol is mentally after the events of Civil War II (not really in that good of a place). She doesn't regret what she's done, but she does have anxiety about the friendships she has lost because of it.

    Stohl is really pulling from Kelly Sue's Captain Marvel run and we have the Carol we know and love back. I'm looking forward to see where this goes.

    Carol is plagued with nightmares after CW2, but Earth needs a mighty defender STAT to deal with an alien refugee crisis. Two thumbs up for this solid re-introduction to Carol Danvers and the problems she's facing. The depredations of CW2 are handled in a brisk but not dismissive way and it's clear that the new direction is aiming to get back to the glory days of Kelly Sue DeConnick's tenure with the character. Here's hoping they get over that rather modest bar with room to spare!

    Art is just odd for a Captain Marvel series. It feels a little too after school special for me. I know it's the writer's influence on the artist to make Capt. more human but having her run around in boy shorts is just silly. The story is ok nothing out of the norm. We know Capt. is going to have struggle after the event of Civil War II but still seems a little obvious. I really do hope that Margret Stohl pushes a little further and that Laiso and Rosanas adult a few things up and Rosenberg the color artist take it easy giving everybody a rosy cheek.

    Nice enough, but it does feel like promotional materials for the movie

    Nightmare of Solomon Dec 21, 2016

    I think I would like this issue better if it didn't gloss over so badly over her personal failings in CW2, like, I don't know... breaking a bunch of constitutional amendments and legal precedents?

    Also, why is she the most popular hero within the Marvel universe now? Feels forced as hell, specially considering that, as I said earlier, she was acting like a fascist thru the latter half of CW2?

    I want to like this series, just like I've wanted to like other Captain Marvel series, but this is like the 4th relaunch in 5-6 years... that's not a good record, so I hope this series improves.

    Of course, one could always ignore anything Bendis did in CW2, but it's kinda hard when a bunch of com more

    The art caught my attention initially, but is inconsistent throughout. I've always liked this character, but this issue seemed to try too hard to humanize her after the events of civil war 2. It ended up feeling very average and ultimately uninteresting.
