Carol Danvers has had as many interpretations of how she became a superhero as she's had superhero mantles themselves — but the first trailer for her solo movie was not the only new take on it we got this week. Her latest comic series just made us question everything we thought we knew about her origins.

It’s here! Captain Marvel has finally landed, before immediately blasting off again with a fantastic looking first trailer. Aside from looking great, the trailer also gives us our first good look at both the cosmic and earthly lives of Carol Danvers, and a hint of the threat’s she’s going to face. Here’s what we could find.
The prequel shorts we’ve had so far for Marvel’s latest animated initiative, Marvel Rising, have yet to actually bring our heroes together—beyond the delightful pairing of Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl—into a cohesive team. Now, our first look at the animated film gives us just that, and a reason for the team to unite.
Carol Danvers is stepping into the spotlight for the long-awaited Captain Marvel next year.
But as part of her revamped origins, she won’t be alone at first—because she’s heading to the stars and meeting up with faces familiar and new to form an old-school comics team: Starforce. Here’s what you need to know.
Once you've seen Avengers: Infinity War and processed your emotions, the questions begin to sink in. Did that really happen? What's next for them? And then you look at the bigger picture and think, what about next year?

While those things do still happen, dating in the 21st century means that you're probably on an app, and the same is now true in comics, too.
Carol Danvers has had a rough few months being raked through the mud that was Civil War II. But she has a new comic series out this week, and perhaps more importantly to Marvel, a movie scheduled for 2019. So after spending the almost a year giving her a position she could not defend without coming across as awful, Marvel is trying to re-invigorate the Carol Corps.
The original way Carol Danvers became Ms. -- and later Captain -- Marvel has always been a bit of a weird tale. Weird enough that Marvel has already said they want to streamline and change it for her cinematic debut in a few years. But her latest comic series might have already done that tweaking for them.
There might be Team Tony and Team Carol, and there might even have been distractions like Hawkeye vs Bruce Banner, but we've known from the get go that Civil War II would all boil down to one almighty clash: Iron Man vs Captain Marvel. That major scrap might already be over though, if the latest issue is anything to go by.
