See how a Kree warrior went from spying on Earth to protecting it!

Every Friday we use the powers of Marvel Unlimited to look back at the very first appearance of a major character, place or object that made waves this week.

For legions of readers, the name Captain Marvel instantly leads to images of Carol Danvers flying around, punching bad guys and being generally awesome. However, as many longtime fans know, she’s but the latest in a line of characters to use that name at the House of Ideas.

The first debuted in 1967’s MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #12 by Stan Lee and Gene Colan. Seeing as how Carol teamed up with the earlier Captain Mar-Vell in this week’s GENERATIONS: THE MIGHTY, it seemed like the perfect time to look back at the latter’s origins.

As the issue opened, a Kree ship approached Earth with Colonel Yon-Rogg in charge. He ordered Captain Mar-Vell to head planetside even though it flew in the face of protocol. Even though he and his medic-girlfriend Una thought the colonel planned on betraying Mar-Vell, he did his duty and continued on the mission.

Decked out with a protective green and white suit, emerald helmet, air-ject belt, universal beam blaster and a potion that allowed him to breathe Earth air for an hour at a time, the captain leapt into action.

Thanks to his own remembrances, we came to understand what brought him to Earth: the destruction of Kree Sentry #459 as seen in the pages of FANTASTIC FOUR #64 plus Ronan’s defeat by the FF in the following issue!

Almost immediately, Mar-Vell stumbled upon a missile test that went sideways. While searching for the cause of the failure, the operators quickly discovered Cap’s presence and set out to investigate. Not wanting to threaten his mission, he ran away, changed into Earth clothes, hitched a ride and got himself a room at a nearby hotel.

There, the colonel teleported a wrist monitor onto Mar-Vell. He then received a message from the Imperial Minister of the Supreme Intelligence that he would be the new Kree agent on Earth. Only success would be tolerated, failure would result in death.

Literally flying solo on a strange planet with no back-up, Captain Mar-Vell continued his adventures in the following issue, written by Roy Thomas where he not only took on the identity of Walter Lawson, but also met Carol Danvers in her first appearance. From there he transitioned into a solo series, CAPTAIN MARVEL, which ran from 1968 to 1979. Three years later, in MARVEL GRAPHIC NOVEL: THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN MARVEL, the world lost a hero as the Kree warrior succumbed to cancer that started developing thanks to his battle with Nitro in CAPTAIN MARVEL #34

Flash Forward

Not counting time travel and Vanishing Points, Captain Mar-Vell continues to be one of the few dead heroes who hasn’t come back. During Civil War, though, it seemed like he’d come back from the dead as seen in CIVIL WAR: THE RETURN. That version of Mar-Vell continued on in five issue CAPTAIN MARVEL series which eventually crossed into Secret Invasion and revealed that the Skrull Khn’nr had been masquerading as the beloved character. It turned out that his mental programming failed and the Mar-Vell identity actually took over, so even after learning the truth about himself, he remained loyal to Earth and fought against the Skrulls. After fighting a losing battle that eventually killed him, he crossed paths with Noh-Varr and encouraged him to carry on the legacy of Captain Marvel which he did in the pages of DARK AVENGERS.

War's hard on everyone, especially super-powered kids.

Each week, we use our super sleuth skills to dig into the histories of the characters fighting on both sides of Secret Empire!

Wars, whether overt or secret, take their toll on everyone involved. Soldiers fight the battles, their families try to go on living back home and children do their best to understand the whole thing.

SECRET EMPIRE may have ended last week with the true Steve Rogers returning thanks to the efforts of Bucky Barnes, Kobik and everyone else who resisted Hydra’s advances. But, just because Captain America’s back to normal, doesn’t mean the damage gets fixed in an instant, at least in some cases.

This week’s CHAMPIONS #12, by Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos, examined the current status of the team in the wake of their incredible and horrible experiences during the conflict, which we’ll examine now! 

Champions (2016) #12

Champions (2016) #12

This version of The Champions – Totally Awesome Hulk, Young Cyclops, Ms. Marvel, Viv Vision, Miles Morales Spider-Man and Nova – initially came together because they didn’t like how the adult heroes handled the business of saving the world.

Even though they had their differences, the Champions joined up with the rest of the adult heroes in the Underground after Captain America took over the country in the name of Hydra.

As Secret Empire kicked off, their ranks swelled to include Ironheart as well as the new versions of Wasp, Falcon and Patriot. When Black Widow split off from the rest of the resistance fighters, intent on taking Steve Rogers out for good, the Champions followed her.

Even though Miles Morales had seen the same vision of himself killing Captain America as everyone else in CIVIL WAR II, he and his team intended to let Black Widow train them in the Red Room – as seen in SECRET EMPIRE UPRISING #1 – but never fully agreed with the idea of killing Steve Rogers. 

Secret Empire: Uprising (2017) #1

Secret Empire: Uprising (2017) #1

UPRISING also saw the Champions infiltrate the Hydra Youth Choir, a plan designed by Widow to get them close to Viper and eventually flip her to their side. This move allowed both Miles and Black Widow to get close enough to Steve Rogers to kill him, but instead Cap killed his former Avengers comrade and Miles gave himself up.

The remaining members of the team did their best to continue fighting against Hydra-Cap, but were temporarily erased from existence after he used a Cosmic Cube-created armor to rewrite history. As we mentioned above, though, Bucky’s plan to bring Kobik and Steve back worked and everyone returned to the land of the living, though still with the memories of what happened.

The Empire Strikes Back

In addition to bringing dead characters like Rick Jones and Black Widow back from the dead, Kobik also offered legacy characters like Miles, Amadeus, Sam Wilson, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Kate Burton, Jane Foster, Wolverine and Iron Heart a “journey of discovery…through the Vanishing Point.” Upon returning in the next panel, these individuals had been restored. To see exactly how, you’ll have to get the various GENERATIONS one-shots that feature these heroes meeting up with their predecessors in ways that allow long-dead or earlier versions of characters to interact with their modern counterparts.

It’s a blast from the past as Miles Morales hits the halls of Empire State University!

On September 27, Miles Morales swings back in time to barge in and complicate the already overly complex and stressful life of a young Peter Parker. In GENERATIONS: MILES MORALES SPIDER-MAN & PETER PARKER SPIDER-MAN #1, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Ramon Perez throw Miles into the world imagined by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko to help him learn just where he fits in to the Spider-Man legacy from the kid who started it all.

“I was very excited about this because the Generations project allows heroes from today to meet their heroes, but at a very specific time in their development,” notes Bendis, “This moment I’ve chosen, as tiny as it is, it’s everything as far as the characters are concerned.” Looks like Peter’s first day of college will be a learning experience for not just one, but two Spider-Men.

As it stands Miles has only ever met the older, wiser and more successful Peter Parker of his time, so it’s understandable that the teenager has come down with a case of “woe is me, no one can possibly understand my solely unique and never felt before struggles of spider life.”

Okay, so Miles may not be that dramatic but you get the gist.

“Miles is always struggling to balance his Spider-Man life, and his Miles life, and his friends, and his family, and his appearance and, you know, Peter doesn’t have any friends, he doesn’t have any parents, he doesn’t have any of these things that Miles is struggling with,” Bendis reminds. Nothing like popping in on a low point in someone else’s life to hit you with a good old-fashioned reality check.

Miles has never seen this Peter before, explains Bendis; it’s a Peter much darker and Miles will see something he can never un-see. And though the writer says seeing the darkness that inspired Peter’s choices at this crossroads in his life will be surprising it will also be a big influence on Miles and his choices moving directly into Marvel Legacy beginning in SPIDER-MAN #234.

Generations: Miles Morales Spider-Man & Peter Parker Spider-Man #1 cover by Ramon Perez

The two stand apart as very different characters leading pretty different lives, especially in the years following the receipt of their powers. Peter has established himself as the independent, go it alone type, while Miles almost always has the help of his friends. Peter stands out as an exceptional student, while Miles remains more, as Bendis puts it, “intuitive.” Peter has not much in the way of accountability when it comes to showing up, whereas there is always someone looking for Miles. Peter gets lost in his own world and disregards those around him, while Miles stays more concerned with keeping up appearances and figuring out how to manage each aspect of his life.

This juxtaposition of Miles and Peter’s character will be showcased in not just the writing of this issue but the art as well, as Perez tries to infuse his own unique style with some Steve Ditko inspired flares: “To capture the spirit of it without imitating it was a big deal to me,” insists Bendis. “That extra level of staying true to yourself yet somehow processing the spirit of Steve Ditko was the challenge we put to Ramon Perez, and boy did he deliver,” adding that as new pages come in he finds himself slow clapping his computer.

So while Peter may or may not think Miles just a delusion caused by a stress induced psychotic breakdown—we’ve all been there, Pete—this meeting will weigh pretty heavily on Miles’ future. “This is the beginning of what I think is a big, surprising year,” teases Bendis, “He’s a young man about to crawl above the influence of his parents, and Uncle Aaron, and Peter Parker and become his own man and that’s pretty exciting, whatever form that takes.”

Catch all the life altering excitement in GENERATIONS: MILES MORALES SPIDER-MAN & PETER PARKER SPIDER-MAN #1 written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Ramon Perez out September 27.

Brent Schoonover depicts the historic meeting of two Captains Marvel!

On September 13, GENERATIONS: CAPTAIN MARVEL & CAPTAIN MAR-VELL by Margaret Stohl and Brent Schoonover will bring together two characters very familiar with one another. Though she would become Ms. Marvel and then Captain Marvel herself later on, Carol Danvers first appeared in MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #13 which Mar-Vell starred in. In fact, she gained her powers in part thanks to an exploding Kree device that laid her up for a while but also restructured her genes combining the best of the two races.

The GENERATIONS issue will use the characters’ history together while also reintroducing readers to a hero who hasn’t really been active since his demise in 1982’s DEATH OF CAPTAIN MARVEL. We talked with Schoonover about the similarities and differences between the two Captains, not to mention the fun of exploring Mar-Vell’s past and helping chronicle Carol’s future.

Marvel.com: Captain Mar-Vell is one of those classic Marvel characters who modern readers haven’t really experienced in new stories. How was it for you getting into this adventure featuring him?

Brent Schoonover: It was fun [because] it was a character that I was familiar with but not totally knowledgeable about. I had an old copy of DEATH OF CAPTAIN MARVEL as it’s just a classic story and a gorgeous book. But I wanted to learn more so I got the Marvel Essential volumes one and two of [the original CAPTAIN MARVEL series]. I really enjoyed checking those out and realized how early on in the birth of the Marvel age of the 60s that the character came around, as well as how early Carol played a part in the book. So it was fun doing the research aspect on a character I enjoyed but had never really gone and done extensive reading on.

Marvel.com: There’s a really cool continuity in costume design from Mar-Vell to Carol. How was it using those elements on the page?

Brent Schoonover: It was neat. I think the Hala star is so cool and iconic. It’s kind of up there with a lighting bolt and a skull in terms on a great graphic to put on a hero’s uniform. My approach on this was I kind of wanted them to each look like they were from different eras. So there’s even some small subtle ways I illustrated each one to give a sense of time difference.

Carol is done in a more contemporary approach and her uniform is a based on the currently used look that is more practical and not really flashy. Mar-Vell is just based in late 60s/early 70s super hero looks. I got his sideburns in there. Wavy 70s hair. No seams on the costume. Very swashbuckling. But the cool thing is once you put that star on the chest it ties it all together. They look and feel connected. That’s the great power of a strong symbol.

Marvel.com: In addition to their looks, the Captains Marvel also both share a military background. How does that play into the way you pose them?

Brent Schoonover: [Laughs] They are both always at attention. Straight up. Strong. Confident. Walk in front like a leader. Neither of these characters lack confidence. Neither one is the sidekick in this story. I think they both access a room or situation the same. Jump into action without missing a beat.

Marvel.com: This duo is also just as interesting for their differences as their similarities. How differently do they carry themselves when it comes down to fighting the enemy?

Brent Schoonover: There’s a great scene where Carol sort of lashes out about an injustice to a citizen on this alien planet. She’s got a good reason but Mar-Vell tries to keep her in check by reminding her that it’s a community that avoids physical altercation at all cost and it’s accustomed to the stuff that they have been through. It’s a nice interaction that shows some of the slight differences in the two Captains. Carol maybe is a bit more heart-on-her-sleeve where Mar-Vell may be a bit more tactical in his approach to everything. There [are] pros and cons to each approach and it’s addressed in a few cool scenes in the book. Carol’s a little more quick to act where Mar-Vell is more likely to react.

Marvel.com: Thanks to her work on MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL, Margaret’s got a solid handle on Carol. You two even worked on issue #4 together. What was it like collaborating with her on this issue?

Brent Schoonover: It was great. I had been reading MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL before chipping in on issue #4 and really liked her approach on the character. Once my time ended on that issue I was hoping to get a chance to draw Carol again. She’s just too much fun to draw. Thankfully [editors] Sana [Amanat] and Charles [Beacham] asked me to work on this.

I always find the character to be at her best when she’s convicted with doing what’s right over doing what is proper protocol, a clash of her military background and her role as a super hero. And I think Margaret did a great job finding Mar-Vell’s voice in the story as well. I was curious before I got the script if this was going to feel like one of the character’s story and the other may play a supporting role. It was awesome to see that this issue really felt like both Captains got equal amounts of story time. So if you are an older Captain Mar-Vell fan or a member of the Carol Corps, I think there’s a lot in this issue for you to be excited about.

GENERATIONS: CAPTAIN MARVEL & CAPTAIN MAR-VELL by Margaret Stohl and Brent Schoonover ships out September 13!

Two Wolverines lock claws in a memorable match-up drawn by Ramon Rosanas!

Ever since DEATH OF WOLVERINE, readers have felt a Logan-sized hole in their lives. Other clawed individuals have stepped in to do some of the jobs other heroes won’t touch like Laura Kinney, who now holds the name Wolverine, and Old Man Logan, but what about the original? With the publication of GENERATIONS: WOLVERINE & ALL-NEW WOLVERINE this week by writer Tom Taylor and artist Ramon Rosanas, we’ll finally have a few answers.

We got in touch with Rosanas about reuniting the clone and her fallen mentor in an issue that celebrates the House of Ideas’ long history of legacy heroes.

Marvel.com: Ever since the “Death of Wolverine” story, people have been wondering when Logan would make his return to comics. How does it feel to be drawing this huge issue in his history?

Ramon Rosanas: Very proud! Wolverine is one of the most loved characters and to be part of his story makes me feel very happy.

Marvel.com: Laura’s gone through a good deal of changes since Logan died. What can you tell us about the emotional connection they will feel when reunited and how that comes across on the page?

Ramon Rosanas: It’s really magical. They are two strong characters. Finding them in an emotional union is a key moment in their personality. I love to draw emotions. I already did it with Deadpool and Ant-Man. I feel comfortable with these stories and this script has given me touching moments.

Marvel.com: Laura might be the All-New Wolverine, but Logan’s the classic model. How do they compare when leaping into battle in this issue?

Ramon Rosanas: They are two generations. Getting them together has been great. I love to see them in that kind of relationship formed between parents and children when you discover that your daughter surpasses you, that she has taken a few steps ahead of you but that you can still protect and teach her many things.

Marvel.com: What can you tell us about the kind of trouble Laura and Logan get up to in this issue and did it offer a lot of design opportunities for you?

Ramon Rosanas: I have enjoyed drawing ninjas and Japanese settings. I have experimented giving the scenes an aspect close to the Manga style; although that has also given me a few headaches in combining both styles of work. I have been allowed to draw Logan in his classic outfit, in civilian clothes, and in his usual T-shirt as the story progressed. And I did the same with Laura, leaving her with a T-shirt like Logan, as if he was “passing the baton.”

Marvel.com: How has it been working with Tom and the gang on this issue?

Ramon Rosanas: I have been part of a great team. I have been able to work with Mark Paniccia whom I love and admire. He was the first editor to open the doors for me in Marvel and to work with him is always really great.

Tom is a great writer. The script describes everything I need to know but at the same time Tom leaves me room to adapt it. He has done a magnificent job throughout the whole episode. I cannot wait to hear from the fans.

Slice and dice alongside Logan and Laura in GENERATIONS: WOLVERINE & ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, available this week from Tom Taylor and Ramon Rosanas!

Two archers. One-shot.

Artist Stefano Raffaele really hits the target with his art and designs for GENERATIONS: HAWKEYE #1, a fact you’ll witness for yourself on August 30 and when you see his words and sketches her in this exclusive behind-the-scenes peek.

Marvel.com: Stefano, we see some Romita Sr. in your take on Kate Bishop—who are your artistic inspirations?

Stefano Raffaele: As a child I grew up reading thousands of classics, and my top favorite artists have always been masters like John Romita Sr., John Buscema, Neal Adams, and Alex Raymond. I try to mix my love for modern and classic together in my drawing style.

Marvel.com: What kind of a feeling did you want to evoke from your presentation of Hawkeye himself here?

Stefano Raffaele: I tried to give Hawkeye a classic feeling, but also look very powerful at the same time. I wanted the reader to “feel at home.” with Clint. I tried to be very respectful of his classic costume, because I know he’s a character that every Marvel fan loves very much.

Marvel.com: We love this great series of pages that leads up to the big full-page confrontation splash. How do you get that sense of movement, like in a film?

Stefano Raffaele: Cinematic storytelling is always my first goal when doing comics. The drawings are important, of course, and they must be powerful, but the right shots are always my main concern when approaching a new page.

Marvel.com: What do you prefer drawing the most: People? Backgrounds? Mechanical?

Stefano Raffaele: People come first, but I give great attention to backgrounds, too, because I think it’s very important to work “around” the characters. I have a lot of fun going into details with backgrounds!

Marvel.com: And what’s your theory on the balance between lights and darks on a page? You seem to have a great mastery of it—is that a challenge for you?

Stefano Raffaele: I am a big fan of old black-and-white movies, from Hitchcock to Truffaut, so I try to put that into my drawings, always mixing modern and classic.

Kate Bishop, A.K.A. Hawkeye, finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a battle royal between the world’s most skilled sharpshooters — including an inexplicably young Clint Barton, A.K.A. the OTHER Hawkeye with GENERATIONS: HAWKEYE & HAWKEYE from Kelly Thompson & Stefano Raffaele on August 30!

Open up a scorching sketchbook as Jean Grey meets The Phoenix!

We don’t know exactly how and we don’t know exactly why, but the adult version of Jean Grey will return in GENERATIONS: PHOENIX & JEAN GREY on August 9. Part of the anthology series celebrating Marvel’s many legacy characters, this Cullen Bunn-written/R.B. Silva-illustrated one-shot promises to have plenty of fans talking as the original Marvel Girl meets up with the youthful Jean currently appearing in her own series and X-MEN: BLUE.

An original member of the X-Men, Jean Grey used her telepathic and telekinetic abilities to battle evil. Eventually the Phoenix Force found her and took over her body, causing all kinds of problems, including her own death!

The younger version of Jean who’s been kicking around the Marvel Universe for the past few years originally thought she came from the past, but eventually learned she and her pals traveled from an alternate dimension. Still, she worries about what the impending arrival of the Phoenix Force might mean for herself.

We talked with Silva about drawing these two together!

Marvel.com: Aside from costumes and age, what are the key physical and design differences between the two Jeans?

R.B. Silva: I believe young Jean is still developing physically, and as the story progresses, she will learn more about herself. On the other hand, classic Jean possesses this strong, invincible posture, consistent with her age.

Marvel.com:  When you first starting talking about drawing this book, was there ever any discussion about giving the original Jean a new costume? Or were you all always planning on going with the classic green and yellow look?

R.B. Silva: The classic suit was something we set for the story from the very beginning.

Marvel.com: On the other hand, you’ve got the younger Jean Grey working with a new costume. Did that take any getting used to as you got into the series?

R.B. Silva: Yes, especially those “Xs” on the chest and the gloves.

Marvel.com: Younger Jean Grey has been trying to figure out how not to become a victim of the Phoenix Force. What’s it like for her when she comes face to face with this older version of herself who’s dealt with it for years?

R.B. Silva: She feels admiration and fear. There’s a lot of respect on her partl it feels baffling to inquire of Jean/Phoenix how she deals with that sentiment all the time.

Marvel.com: How has it been working with Cullen and the editorial team on this story that promises to become a huge part in Jean Grey’s history?

R.B. Silva: Cullen is extremely talented. We have worked together before, in other projects, and that made things easier for us to develop this story. The editorial staff is perfectly synced, and I’m confident enough to say this project will be among the best ones in the whole year. I am very happy to be a part of this team.

GENERATIONS: PHOENIX & JEAN GREY from Cullen Bunn and R.B. Silva blazes a new path on August 9!
