Another alien spaceship is headed straight for the Alpha Flight Space Station, this time with a crew. And Captain Marvel still doesn’t have her powers. Where did these aliens come from? And why are they hunting the Kree?
However, I do like how this issue furthers the relationship between Captain Marvel and Lt. Commander Brand. While they started out slightly hostile, both women seem to have come to a grudging respect for the other. It’s nice to see two very different badass ladies in charge and supporting each other.
That page makes up for the slightly confusing opening where I wasn’t sure who was speaking because the dialogue wasn’t connected to a specific character. I wasn’t a fan of the issue starting off this way because it left me struggling to get my bearings right in the very beginning.
Overall Captain Marvel has been so strong. This issue is my least favorite only because the other three were near perfect, while this one left me confused and with some questions. I am looking forward to next month’s issue clearing up some things, and hopefully having some answers!
