Trivia / Ms. Marvel

  • Fan Nickname: Unfortunately, the latest incarnations of Captain Marvel, particularly post-haircut, have earned her the nickname of "Carl Manvers" in some circles.
  • One of Us: Carol is quite a sci-fi fan.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In the 80's, there were plans for an X-Men animated series which would've seen a teenage version of Carol as one of the main characters. She would've been renamed "Lady Lightning," and presumably would have been a mutant.
    • Before the show was picked up by Netflix and officially announced as part of the MCU, there were plans to have Ms. Marvel as a supporting character on Jessica Jones. She was subsequently Adapted Out and replaced by Patsy Walker, presumably to avoid conflict with the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.
    • Kevin Feige has confirmed that Carol was present in early drafts of Avengers: Age of Ultron as Captain Marvel. She was written out after they realized introducing her without providing an origin or context could lead to Continuity Lock-Out for casual audiences.
    • Before settling on Warbird, Kurt Busiek considered giving Carol the codename Nemesis during his Avengers run.
