* PietaPlagiarism: The cover of The Death of Captain Marvel graphic novel is very explicitly based on the Michelangelo work.

* PietaPlagiarism: The cover of The Death of Captain Marvel graphic novel is very explicitly based on novel, featuring the GrimReaper holding the captain's body. Of all the examples of this trope it's the closest to a true imitation of the Michelangelo work.work, explicitly borrowing the pose of a sitting Mary with her son's body in her arms.

The torch was then briefly passed to Noh-Varr, a Kree SuperSoldier from another dimension (originally known as "Marvel Boy"). Although he declared war on Earth at first, he was encouraged by the Skrull Captain Marvel to fight the good fight. He was manipulated to become "Captain Marvel" in the ComicBook/DarkAvengers, but left when he saw the team for what it really was. For a while, he became Protector after contact with this Universe's Kree Supreme Intelligence, before deciding to drop the codenames in the YoungAvengers, where he's simply Noh-Varr.

* LifeWillKillYou: While the cause was mildly fantastic, his death from cancer was played realistically and affectingly, which may be related to his never having been resurrected.

During the [[TheSixties 1960s]], writer Creator/StanLee noticed that the name's trademark from [[{{ComicBook/Shazam}} the Fawcett Comics character]] was available again, and decided that Marvel should own it (Marvel Comics, Captain Marvel... makes sense, right?). So he created a new superhero named that, one quite different from the previous ones. The new character first appeared in ''"Marvel Super-Heroes''" #12 (December, 1967). Given the value of the name to DC and the utter obscurity of the Marvel version of the character, you'd think Marvel would cash in and make a mint selling the name back to DC at an enormous profit... except for the fact that he's called "Captain Marvel" and they're called "Marvel Comics" and you just can't let that kind of synchronicity slip away from you.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: A variant: Rick Jones comes to Reed and the other superintelligent superheroes of the era and asks them to use their big showoffy brains to cure Mar-Vell's cancer. They come to the uncomfortable realization that they could have been doing that for everyone in the world ''the entire time''.
** And when their efforts fail to bear fruit in time to save Mar-Vell, they '''just stop trying'''! Nevermind that '''other''' people might be helped in the future, nope, it was "save Mar" or nothing.

Despite his death having occurred over thirty years ago and him unusually staying dead (save for a brief return during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''), he and his legacy still exert a powerful influence on the Marvel Universe today.
