Kara Szamborski  recommends Captain Marvel #3

Superhero comics are modern myths—there are heroes, villains, epic battles, grand quests, and extraordinary deeds. As readers, we are used to these patterns, however unrealistic and stark an interpretation of the world they are. In Captain Marvel #3, our hero gets a serious reality check, and so do we.

Dodging through the space dogfight at the opening of our story, Captain Marvel and the Guardians of the Galaxy (yeah, the guys in the upcoming movie! Learn about ‘em here.) reclaim the Captain’s stolen ship and complete her mission objective—-but a larger challenge looms, one that she will not be able to solve alone. She arrives on an alien planet wanting to fix the problems it faces, but the situation is hardly one that requires a sharp catch phrase and a well aimed photon blast. Most problems are complex and require cooperation, communication, and compromise, and cannot be easily solved by one person, superpowered or not.

We are so often treated to the idea that the hero will save the day without realizing that one person’s hero is another person’s nuisance or even unintentional enemy. Kelly Sue DeConnick (kellysue) introduces us to the idea that Captain Marvel is in over her head, and the potential of this idea has me hooked.

The previous Captain Marvel series was mostly set on Earth, but these new adventures look to the skies. I’m pretty new to the Marvel Universe, but I have no doubt that exploring it with Captain Marvel is going to be the best way to go.

Kate Kasenow recommends Ms. Marvel #3

As a recent reboot, the new Ms. Marvel series from Marvel Comics has quite a history to live up to, but the newest issue does not disappoint!

Written by seasoned comics novelist G. Willow Wilson (gwillow) and illustrated by the talented Adrian Alphona with beautiful colors by Ian Herring (iherring) , Ms. Marvel #3 is the ongoing exploration of what it means to become a hero in a world already inundated with superhero culture. In this issue we are carried along with lead protagonist Kamala Khan as she explores the boundaries of her newfound powers. Tensions are riding high as Kamala’s ongoing struggle to discover who she is bombarded by parental expectations and cultural obligations.

There have been a lot of great things happening in this series from the start. Firstly, we have a new female, Pakistani, Muslim superhero. Second, we have a diverse cast full of great characters who are given their own chances to shine and develop in each issue. Lastly, we are viewing the established Marvel universe through the unique lens; Kamala herself has long been a fan of the superheroes we know, but is a newcomer to their inner workings. That itself is what makes this series perfect for old fans and new readers alike.

So, if you haven’t been reading, now is a great time to get started!
