Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Dexter Soy
What starts as a capricious (or subconscious?) change in looks ends up as the most significant move Carol Danvers has made in years, and the realization of her wildest dream since House of M. After the events in Operation Phoenix, a yet unseen team-up with Rogue, and an exciting skirmish with the Absorbing Man, Ms. Marvel has a couple of heart-to-hearts with close friends that lead in a natural way to her taking over the mantle and legacy of Captain Marvel. DeConnick is able to introduce the character to new readers in a friendly manner while giving long time followers the opportunity to learn new things about Carol's past; all in a self contained story, which nowadays in a #1 issue is as scarce as dinosaurs. Soy produces some beautiful images, especially those featuring the Captain fully armored. As an added bonus, the issue's Augmented Reality (AR) content features a couple of Kelly Sue clips. Amazing book!
