I picked up my first Marvel

Oh Yea. [Captain Marvel #1:2012]

So it is a brand new day here at Stuperheroes. I picked up my first Marvel comic, Captain Marvel. I didn’t know what to expect and I have been meaning to give Marvel a fair shake for a while now, since I have really talked about DC a lot.

Mostly I have been having a huge problem on what I would like with Marvel, and I would have preferred to start with a number one of something, not try and pick up a series halfway through I also don’t want to have to back trade through years and years of issues to know what the hell is going on, that just didn’t appeal to me.

So Captain Marvel, seemed like a good choice to me. It had a Woman as the lead, Carol Danvers, it’s a number one, and was fun to read. That is the important part to me.

So the story starts out with Captain Marvel and Captain America fighting Absorbing Man together. They win and end up going back to her apartment to talk. This is where they start to outline Captain Marvel’s back story and how Carol end up with powers in the first place. This was nice for me, because I had no expectation when I started reading this. The pervious Captain Marvel and her somehow shared DNA and now she is thinking about taking his name since, I’m assuming, he has passed away. Since she has some of his DNA that was Mar-Vell’s she is debating taking up his name.

The other half of the story is Carol talking about her life as a small child and how she looked up to her father and another woman by the name of Helen Cobb who was a pilot. When she finds out that Helen has passed away, she goes to the funeral and the issues ends.

This was fun because you get a real sense of the character and even if you have no background on the character you can still enjoy it. That was fun for me. While most of the issue dealt with Carol deciding if she was going to take the name or not, it was still an interesting story and I can’t wait to see what happens next issues. It was nice to read something that I had no history with and just enjoy it.

Edit: Anyone have any other suggestion for Marvel comics I am all ears. I have a few of the Gunslinger Trades but I don’t feel that counts because it is more Stephen King in control of the story and I love the dark tower so it wasn’t that hard to pick those up.
