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

* ''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}!'': 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.
** ''Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainMarvel'', a 1940s film serial starring this version.
* ComicBook/CaptainMarVell, the Kree character created by Creator/MarvelComics 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 KilledOffForReal in the Eighties: Monica Rambeau, Genis-Vell, Phyla-Vell, Khn'nr, and Noh-Varr.
* [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]], 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. After spending decades under different names (Ms. Marvel, Binary, Warbird), she became the latest Captain Marvel in 2012.
** ''Captain Marvel'', the upcoming Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse film which will star the Carol Danvers version. (Link to be added once a page is made.)
