Captain Marvel

"Captain Marvel" is a name that can refer to:

  • Shazam!: The original Captain Marvel, created in The Golden Age of Comic Books as a Superman knockoff. Billy Batson shouts the magic word "SHAZAM!" to call down magic lightning which transforms him into the World's Mightiest Mortal.
  • Captain Mar-Vell, the Kree character created by Marvel Comics in the Sixties when the trademark on the "Shazam" version lapsed. Also covered on this page are various successors to the "Captain Marvel" name after Mar-vell was Killed Off for Real in the Eighties: Monica Rambeau, Genis-Vell, Phyla-Vell, Khn'nr, and Noh-Varr.
  • Carol Danvers, the current holder of the name, also from Marvel Comics. Originally a supporting character and Love Interest of Mar-Vell's, Carol Danvers eventually gained superpowers herself and became his Distaff Counterpart. After spending decades under different names (Ms. Marvel, Binary, Warbird), she became the latest Captain Marvel in 2012.
    • Captain Marvel, the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film which will star the Carol Danvers version. (Link to be added once a page is made.)
