A lot was said about Carol Danvers' reinvention as a fascist for Marvel's Civil War 2 super-mega-crossover event. Ah, what a naive time we were living in, way back in 2016.
As Marvel wraps up the Secret Empire super-mega-crossover event, in which Captain America is revealed to be a lifelong agent of Hydra and takes part in a fascist takeover of the United States, let's just say the center has moved far to the right since Civil War 2, putting Captain Marvel in the strange position of being the voice of reason for the Marvel Universe when it comes to whether or not fascism is a good thing and Nazis should be punched.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview on Entertainment Weekly about Captain Marvel post-Legacy, writer Margaret Stohl talked about the need for Carol to step up in a leadership role after Secret Empire:
As I've said in the past, with the events of Secret Empire, we've really been reminded that there's more than one Cap in the Marvel Universe. As Captain America stumbles, Captain Marvel steps up. Watching Steve lose his way has only made Carol more certain of hers — which is good, because almost everything else she's thought she knew about her life is about to be called into question. Buckle up, folks. Things are about to get pretty wild in the Carol-verse.
