Captain Marvel explains why no alien attacks were made on Earth before Thanos sent Loki in The Avengers. Apart from giving a strong Cinematic debut to Carol Danvers, the film also offers the reveal that Ronan the Accuser wanted the Tesseract before he turned his attention towards the Power Stone in Guardians Vol 1.
Captain Marvel Had Ronan The Accuser
Captain Marvel is set in 1995 and takes us back to the time when Nick Fury was a young SHIELD operative. He encounters Carol Danvers, who doesn’t know anything about her past. Carol goes by the name Vers and once she regains her memories gradually, she switches sides with Skrulls, assisting them out. As Captain Marvel easily took down the Starforce, Ronan watched all this. He wanted to join the battle but later retreated after seeing how powerful Carol was. However, he did promise to return.
Captain Marvel’s Immense Powers Stopped Ronan and Everyone
Ronan, however, never returned and neither did the Kree tried to add the planet to their vast empire. Ronan is taken by surprise after he saw Carol easily taking out the bombs unleashed by him on Earth. It’s possible that the news of a powerful hero guarding C-53 may have spread around the Galaxy, preventing any attack.
Thanos knew that the Space Stone was on Earth and that’s why he sent Loki to find out, equipping him with the Mind Stone. Unfortunately, Carol wasn’t around and by then, Fury had assembled the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes or what we know, The Avengers.
