New Captain Marvel Comic Will Reinvent Carol Danvers’ Origin Story

Carol Danvers will receive a new updated origin story, beginning in Marvel Comics’ Life of Captain Marvel #1 on July 4.

Writer Margaret Stohl, who penned Carol’s adventures in The Mighty Captain Marvel, will be joined by artist Carlos Pacheco.

“This one is especially important to me,” Stohl told ABC News. “I relate to Carol Danvers so personally. And I really wanted to be able to do this and go back in before her movie launches.”

According to a Marvel press release, what prompts the retelling of Captain Marvel’s origin story will be “crippling anxiety attacks [that] put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight.”

The synopsis goes on to say, “Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her. You can’t outrun where you’re from — and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel’s closet — and what she discovers will change her entire world.”

Stohl added that elements of Captain Marvel’s current origin, including the Kree, will still be a major part of her story.
