Whoops! [[NamesTheSame Turns out there are multiple superheroes named Captain Marvel.]] Are you looking for:

''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}!'' (right): The original Captain Marvel, created in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks as a ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' knockoff. Billy Batson shouts the magic word "SHAZAM!" to call down magic lightning which transforms him into the World's Mightiest Mortal. The rights were eventually purchased by Superman's owners Creator/DCComics, but his books had to be advertised under the "Shazam!" title and his name was later changed outright due to conflicts with...

''ComicBook/CaptainMarVell'' (left): Created by Creator/MarvelComics in the Sixties when the trademark on the "Shazam" version lapsed. A Captain in the alien Kree army named Mar-Vell, sent to spy on Earth but coming to use his powers to protect humans. He eventually died of cancer during the Eighties, but [[LegacyCharacter has been succeeded by several other heroes to take the "Captain Marvel" name]], the most recent one being...

''ComicBook/MsMarvel'' (not pictured): The current holder of the name, also from Creator/MarvelComics. Originally a supporting character and LoveInterest of Mar-Vell's, Carol Danvers eventually gained superpowers herself and became his DistaffCounterpart as Ms. Marvel. She spent much of the time since Mar-Vell's death as a second-string hero before being relaunched in 2012 as the new ''Captain'' Marvel. Not to be confused with [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]], who took over the "Ms. Marvel" name from her.

You may also be looking for the upcoming Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse film which will star the Carol Danvers version, but we don't have a page for that yet.

(Apparently, at least one other comics company decided to cash in on the [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=36&Itemid=53&limitstart=63 Captain]] [[http://www.dialbforblog.com/archives/46/ Marvel]] name, too.)
