Captain Marvel And The Carol Corps, From Marvel For Secret Wars


Well, we can't just talk about DC today.

The Carol Corps are the collective name for Captain Marvel fans, specifically the iteration written by Kelly Sue DeConnick.

Not any more. In Secret Wars, they are going legit. FastCoCreate has been given the MArvel PR on the latest Secret Wars series for June, Captain Marvel & The Carol Corps by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kelly Thompson and David Lopez.

"When I created the Banshees in the first go round, I did something really dumb," says DeConnick. "I considered having a black woman be part of the team, and then didn't because in the real-life air service pilots in World War II, the two black women that applied were turned down because of racism. And I thought, well then, I can't have black women here either. Even though at the same time I was breaking all sorts of other rules. For some reason I thought it was okay for them to fight giant robots, but having a black woman was too much of a stretch. It's embarrassing, so when we were talking about bringing these characters back, I had a chance to correct that."
