Quesada’s New Captain Marvel Variant Calls Back to Infinity War’s Finger Snap

Quesada’s New Captain Marvel Variant Calls Back to Infinity War’s Finger Snap

Captain Marvel is poised for new adventures, thanks to the team-up of Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco in The Life of Captain Marvel, which launches this July. However, ahead of the five-issue miniseries’ release, readers can get their first look at Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada’s beautiful variant cover for Issue #3.

The artwork features Carol Danvers hovering against a dark backdrop. Interestingly enough, though, her hands appear to be fading away, much like what happened to those who fell victim to Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War.

In the five-issue arc, Carol’s strength will be tested — not that of her body, but of her emotional fortitude — as a traumatic event compels her to take a closer look at her relationship with her biological family.

“The understanding of Carol as a hero is fundamentally tied to her strength, but being strong is not entirely the same as having Kree powers,” writer Margaret Stohl told CBR in a recent interview. “So it’s been a really interesting journey looking into the nature of Carol’s strength; what makes her strong as a person and as a hero? Where is that all coming from?”

The solicitation details for the variant cover issue are as follows:
