New "Captain Marvel" Is A Woman

During Saturday's "WonderCon", Marvel Comics revealed details of a new "Captain Marvel" comic book series featuring the character of 'Carol Danvers', formerly 'Ms. Marvel', written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and illustrated by Dexter Soy, with a cover by Ed McGuinness.

"'Carol' is the virtual definition of a Type A personality," said writer DeConnick. "She's a competitor and a control freak. At the start of our series, we see Carol pre-'Captain Marvel', pre-'NASA', back when she was a fiercely competitive pilot.

"We'll see her meeting one of her aviation heroes and we'll see her youthful swagger. Then over the course of the first arc we're going to watch her find her way back to that hungry place. She'll have to figure out how to be both 'Captain Marvel' and 'Chuck Yeager', to marry the responsibility of that legacy with the sheer joy of being nearly invulnerable..."

Marvel Comics new "Captain Marvel" series will launch July 2012.
