He will be Captain Marvel who else would a Captain Marvel book be about

God, how great would it have been if DC didn't officially change their Captain Marvel's name to Shazam? Oh, the confusion! ...maybe.

Everybody is coming back from the dead... Why not Captain Marvel?

Posted by evilvegeta74

It had better be the real deal, and they better let him leave. If Marvel Comics doesn't want to deal with him, consistantly then they should just place him with the Annihilators, he's a cosmic hero. and one of my favorites, I'm tired Marvel Comics toying with this character , let him live.

Keep that Mar-vell Trademark alive!

Either way, I am excited to see his resurrection...

Posted by Outside_85

Well it obviously wont be anyone with Batson as their last name.

Posted by Shamelesslysupportinaznballers

Pass the mantle onto someone else! His death was so different and meaningful.

Posted by PrinceIMC

I kinda hope it's Teddy Altman.

I don't like Marvel's Captain Marvel, imo -_-

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Wow, he's been dead for a while

Why not indeed. the concept of Lady Death is a laughable idea. Is there really a purpose to her even existing in the marvel universe?

Posted by ShadowX

No I think it's Hulkling, i think that captain Marvel in AVX is Hulkling, and this will continue his story.

Posted by The V0id

Wasn't Captain Marvel featured on one of the Avengers vs X-Men covers? It would be awesome if the Phoenix Force could resurrect some or all of the characters who have died in Marvel.

Posted by X35

This should be Noh-Varr not that stupid Young Avenger. >:(

Posted by deadpool25mm

@mtrakos: yeah i hope its Noh-Varr too .

Posted by stu

i kinda hope its Genis

Edited by ArtisticNeedham

Probably going to turn out to be that Marvel Boy guy who is now Protector or something, he will probably become Captain Marvel again, but this time for the good guys and be a real hero and really try to live up to being Captain Marvel.

@mtrakos: @deadpool25mm: @ArtisticNeedham: sorry to disappoint

Well I suppose that answers that then.

Posted by evilvegeta74

No disrespect to Billy Batson( Shazam/Captain Marvel),this topic is not about him, it's about Mar-vell! Ironically my first 2 comics were about both of of these characters, one from Dc and one From Marvel, I hold them both in high regards. Now moving on, I believe that this Captain Marvel is Mar-vell, remembering that Genis-vell's body was seperated and sent to different realms in Thunderbolts 100 . Noh-Varr is on the cover so it couldn't be him, and Hulking just doesn't fit the profile aside of DNA. I just hope this is the real deal. Mar-vell needs to be placed on the Annihilators and kick a.. all through the universe,he should only come to earth if there is a serious problem lets say Phoenix! Live on Captain Marvel!

Posted by Iridium

Isn't DC relaunching Captain Marvel but my the name Shazam, which while making some sense, it still really disappointing. I figure Marvel want to reaffirm the name in their Universe.

Posted by CapFanboy

YES!!!! YESS!!!!!! OH GOOOOOOD YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!!

Posted by Grey56

@Shamelesslysupportinaznballers: Agreed. I don't mind if it's another person to take up the mantle - in fact I'd encourage it. Just not the original Mar-vell. We'll see though. Any excuse to get a series with more cosmic characters is a win with this guy.

About time

Posted by PrinceIMC

Well it sure does look like Teddy Altman's version if Captain Marvel which is good, they've never done anything with Noh-Var he doesn't deserve to be Captain Marvel.

Edited by PrimeDirective

Teddy doesn't really have anything else to do in the wake of Children's Crusade, so it very well could be him. I REALLY hope it's Mar-Vell, but I doubt it with that color scheme. Also, I gotta ask... Is Captain Marvel really powerful enough to fit in with the Annihilators? I mean, I know he was a paragon of truth and justice that pretty much was the model hero of all the other heroes, but that had nothing to do with his strength and power, right? I never thought his strength was up there with Thor, Surfer, Sentry, and Hulk and photonic blasts aren't exactly the most terrifying thing to the forces of evil. I mean, I know he's an expert combatant and all, but I always thought his true strength came from his leadership, kinda like Captain America.

Billy Batson. F*ck Marvel.

Posted by X35

Screw the stupid Young Avenger. Noh-Varr deserved the chance and his story was building to it all before Bendis just got bored of writing him and just abandoned it.

Noh-Varr

so DC and marvel are bringing back their captain marvels now, alright. Anyway I hope Protector becomes captain marvel, either that or the original comes back. And if anyone is going to comment on this just know that I know DC changed their captain marvel's name to shazam.

Edited by Teerack

I hope it's Mar-vell and not someone else .

Only reason I don't see it being Noh-Varr is

Remember...as certain as people seem....they don't know either.

Edited by PrimeDirective

@spiderbat87: I know he never had any energy manipulation feats on par with Quasar and as far as physical strength he's only a 15 tonner if I recall. Maybe 50, but even if that's the case, he's still falling short of being on par with Ronan. At best he could maybe get by with replacing Ikon on the Annihilators. She claims to be the perfect team leader? How about someone who's freaking omniscient about practically everything in the cosmos who even Steve, Tony, and Thor were willing to take orders from on occasion? I can see it now, Mar-Vell hanging in the back, pointing out their opponents' weaknesses and the rest of the team tearing them asunder.

SHAZAM! xP

Edited by MarvelMan1985

God i hope they keep Mar-vell dead. I liked Captain Marvel, but the only reason he is interesting now is because he is dead. He is the one symbol of a true hero with a long history to have died. And not just 'a death'. He died of cancer. A real life decease. I dont think you should just get him up and running again. If you didnt want it to be so hard to revive a character, you shouldnt have killed him in this way. 
 
Just like Doug from the New Mutants, Captain Marvel fulfills a more interesting character being dead. Look at Doug now in his 'revived' status, they brought him back and he doesnt bring anything extra to the table. In his death, he helped shape the New Mutants. It haunted them for a long time, it was there "Thunderbird" dying. His interesting side was that he was dead, and nothing else. Just my 2 cents.

Posted by Teerack
@PrimeDirective: Did  Quasar ever get his body back? or is he still a weird ghost thing?
Posted by PrimeDirective
@Teerack: I don't exactly remember... I think so, but all that Fault/Cancerverse stuff was kind of confusing to follow, so it may just be that his quantum energy body has taken on a more living appearance.
Posted by jcbart

There was an article floating about that it may in fact be Carol Danvers. I'll try and find the link.

Posted by DMC

Maybe Mar-Vell comes back to finally anoint Carol Danvers as the new Captain Marvel......ooooorrrr maybe he's finally coming back.
