In the 2019 MCU film, Captain Marvel, the following exchange happens between Monica Rambeau and Fury:

Monica: Maybe I can fly up and meet you halfway.
Fury: Only if you learn to glow, like your Auntie Carol.
Monica: Or maybe I'll build a spaceship.

Now, I know that in the comics, Monica Rambeau became a superhero who took the mantle of Captain Marvel at some point, so this apparently foreshadows that Monica may become a superhero at some point in the MCU.

Does Monica Rambeau build any significant technology in the Marvel comics?

    Why does it have to allude to anything in the comics? It could be a reference to the test ship that Carol crashed in. – TheLethalCarrot Jun 5 '19 at 9:19
  • @TheLethalCarrot it doesn't have to allude; I should rather be asking if it alludes. – svavil Jun 5 '19 at 11:49

    People are quick to downvote, but I don't see anything wrong with this question. Seems like a legitimate good question to me. – ThePopMachine Jun 5 '19 at 16:15

    Glowing definitely alludes to her comic powers, not sure about building anything. – Jack Jun 5 '19 at 23:56

    In the comics, Monica Rambeau exhibits no special inventor or building skills in any of the stories I have read. She was a coast guard before becomg Captain Marvel, with no academic degress AFAIR. – Klaus Æ. Mogensen Jun 6 '19 at 7:54
