So instead of having her copy from a male character, Marvel decides to copy off a DC male character! Brilliant feminism there. She's a superman/aquaman rip-off! The rest of the story is bad as well and gets every thing about the Kree wrong. They don't have an emperess, they have the Supreme Intelligence.

It was an accident of fate. A mysterious bonding between a super hero, a human and an alien machine. Mar-Vell and the Psyche-Magnitron that gave her Kree powers have been part of Carol's story since the beginning - but that's just the story you know. The true tale of Carol Danvers and her journey to becoming Captain Marvel begins years ago, on a st...

Everything has gone from bad to worse, for the characters but especially for the narrative which is a mess. Gamora doesn't have a solid motivation for why she is doing any of this. characters stand around and do nothing except quip plot. Characters are dead now for some reason (hello? moondragon is alive, Duggan. even Bendis knew that) Deodato's messy paneling doesn't help the already messy plot. more

WHO ARE THE INFINITY WARPS?
With Requiem tearing through the Marvel Universe, Loki whispering around its fringes and a new threat looming to devour everything, the very fabric of reality warps around the heroes of Earth... and the only way through winds through infinity itself!

Gamora merged the souls of her universe to stave off Devondra, a soul eating entity that's been wreaking havoc across the multiverse. It's the monster inside the soul gem. She does this as a way to get the heroes fighting against her out of the way and to keep Devondra at bay long enough to figure out how to stop it. As for Moondragon, she was dead until Bendis brought her back, which is the only reason he'd know that she was alive. That doesn't make Duggan's continuity flub any better though.

As a major Adam Warlock fan, this issue didn't excite. The art is okay but feels very off. Still hate Adam's new design.

Carol continues her descent on being the worst published book at Marvel but this issue was decent, awful pop jokes and dialogue that is still atrocious to read aside. Nothing happens aside from the Bean Ghost appearing.

Someone should have told Stohl that Jessica Jones has a kid already.

Bonus: The alpha flight cadets don't actually show up so that raises my opinion.
