Ms. Marvel is shedding her golden locks and taking on a new role in the Marvel Universe with this summer’s Captain Marvel ongoing from Kelly Sue DeConnick!
A well-deserved promotion to one of Marvel’s strongest leading ladies and one more degree of separation from DC’s Big Red Cheese.
So it was just announced at Wondercon that Kelly Sue DeConnick will be writing a new ongoing Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel) series, with Dexter Soy on interiors and Ed McGuinness on covers. I had the privilege of designing Carol’s new costume. Our idea was to give her a kind of swash-buckling costume that invoked a sense of her history as an Air Force officer. Her hair is slicked back at the sides when in costume – so her Kree-style helmet can form when she needs it.
