At the beginning of Avengers: Endgame Tony Stark is drifting in space and in the recorded message he says he's "1000 lightyears" from Earth. Captain Marvel shows up and next thing we know Danvers is gracefully putting the ship down on Earth.

As the ship was non-functional as far as we could tell and unable to jump through wormholes on its own, how did they get back so fast? Can Captain Marvel jump through wormholes while carrying a space ship?

    Yes. Obviously she can – Valorum May 4 at 19:56

    Idk but the “a thousand light years away” is most likely a figure of speech. Remember, the MCU hasn’t established the exact location of Titan – Shreedhar May 4 at 21:40
  • As Ebony Maw, having captured Dr. Strange, was leaving the Earth with its ring-shaped ship in Avengers: Infinity War towards the Titan, the ship did a jump, so it is at least some distance away. – SandSandwich May 7 at 12:18
  • Perhaps she could restore power to the ship and it could then open the wormhole. She has those glowy hands. – ThePopMachine Jun 4 at 17:54
  • In the movie at one point she flies from the ground to space to fight some Accuser vessels attacking the planet. Let's assume that it took less than an hour for her to reach the ships (which seems like a safe estimate). Let's also assume the Accuser ships were in high orbit, so let's say 35,786 kilometers high above her. Assuming that she covered that distance in 59 minutes, that means that she can fly at least as fast as 10,109 m/s or 22,613 mph. – just_happen_to_know Jun 13 at 20:28


This isn't even a stat known in the comics. There are quite a few references to Captain Marvel Vol. 7 #8 where she was apparently clocked as going Mach 3 for a few hours, though I have not been able to confirm this. But realistically speaking, she has no canonical top speed, and can travel at the Speed of Plot.
