Despite their best efforts, Binary is still very much trapped by The Brood. Carol Danvers, Jessica Drew, Jennifer Takeda, and several X-Men are on a quest to save her – and Rogue. However, The Brood are putting up more resistance than expected, causing Jennifer Takeda, aka Hazmat, to take extreme measures.
Before I begin this review, I want to take a moment to talk about the latest news I heard. Kelly Thompson’s run on Captain Marvel will end in Captain Marvel #50. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m pretty destroyed by this news. I know, I know. Artists and authors can’t stick to a series forever. But her run has been a favorite of mine, and it hurts to see her leave.
Captain Marvel #47 starts in the middle of the action – as it should. Last we saw, Hazmat was doing her thing, which left us wondering how all our other favorite heroes were faring. Honestly, it was pretty cool to see Jen step up and show us the true power of her ability. I also love that this issue gave her a moment to talk about the good and the bad.
In truth, this whole plot arc has done a wonderful job of commenting on the past. Rogue, Captain Marvel’s, and now Hazmat’s. It’s so wonderfully done, especially as these moments give these characters more ownership over what happened.
The issue ends with some concerning hints as to what is to come. However, we can probably assume that the 50th issue will wrap up this whole arc. So it’ll be interesting to see how that goes.
As always, I adored the artwork in Captain Marvel #47. The cover is brilliant – immediate references come to mind. Even without that, it’s an eye-catching cover. Hazmat’s scenes were arguably some of the most visually stunning. I wonder if we’ll ever get a chance to see her run a solo series. I would love that.
