Review: Captain Marvel #46

Artist: Javier Pina
Colorist: Yen Nitro
Letterer: VC’s Clayton Cowles
Publisher: Marvel Comics

Comic Summary:

Carol Danvers, Hazmat, Spider-Woman, and several X-Men are dealing with a Brood attack. They cannot leave until they safely recover their two missing allies (Binary and Rogue). But things are about to get a whole lot worse than they feared. Given Carol’s experience with the Brood, this is saying something…

Read this arc if you love crossovers, X-Men, Rogue, Spider-Woman, and Hazmat.

My Review:

We’re ever so close to the height of this arc as the Revenge of the Brood marches onward. Carol and crew have done all this to save their two friends, so we always knew it would get emotionally tense, right?

Kelly Thompson did a wonderful job of playing with past events and references throughout Captain Marvel #46. One thing I love about her writing Captain Marvel is she never dances around her history. It’s always present, and when it is relevant, boy, does it come up. Much of this plot feels oddly full circle but in a horrifying way. Only time will tell how accurate that statement is.

Oh! And that moment with Hazmat. I won’t say much more than that because of major spoilers. But it was amazing to see her get a moment to shine. Likewise, I enjoyed seeing the characters react and respond to what was happening at this moment. More, please. Likewise, I hope that promised conversation with Psylocke does occur. But I’ll settle for what has already been said.

The artwork in Captain Marvel #46 is incredible, unsurprisingly. Javier Pina (artist), Yen Nitro (colorist), and VC’s Clayton Cowles (letterer) all teamed up to bring this issue to life. They did an exceptionally brilliant job with the battle scenes, which is good because they’re a heavy focal point.

That said, a few subtle elements are worth noting, much of which has to do with the past. It always comes back around to the past, doesn’t it? Funny how that happens.
