Whyy… oh why??
When Marvel revealed the upcoming Captain Marvel arc The Last Avenger, we knew that an evil Carol could be deadly to just about any Marvel hero. We knew that her mission is to kill the Avengers. But we don’t know why that was her mission or what happened to lead up to this, thanks to Marvel’s new December Solicitations we do know that she is successful in at least killing one.

ComicBook writer Matthew Aguilar recently had the chance to speak to Captain Marvel writer Kelly Thompson, and she teased a bit of what’s to come and what fans can expect from The Last Avenger.
“Carol is an incredibly powerful character and you can really push her to the furthest edge and you sort of need to in order to keep things interesting, and that’s what we’re trying to do with The Last Avenger,” Thompson said. “I think it’s going to be a terrific Carol story that really highlights her strengths as a character – and maybe some weaknesses as well. Issue 12 is unlike any script I’ve written for Marvel before and unlike any Carol story I’ve ever read. It’s a little risky but I’m excited. I hope people love it.”
And she isn’t wrong. The Captain Marvel series has been doing pretty well with sales going up.
