No. The main part that I think you are misunderstanding is that her powers were derived from a power source (the warp drive) made by the Tesseract, but not the Tesseract itself or even the Space Stone, just a source of power made by the Space Stone. This is kinda similar to how the Maximoff twins gain their powers from Loki's scepter but still retain them ...

The name, and the list of heroes who have used it, can get rather complex. I'll try to summarize, and stick only to the ones that connect directly to the current one, Carol Danvers. There's a couple other heroes that have used the Captain Marvel name, the most well known being the hero that transforms by saying the magic word "SHAZAM!". It was originally ...

There are few things at play here, Carol absorbs the energy from the light speed engine that powered the ship not from the Tesseract itself. This energy is then likely less fatal than if she'd absorbed power directly from the Space Stone. Talos: She wanted you to help us find the core. Carol: Well, I already destroyed it. Talos: No, you ...

Whilst the official answer of the MCU is technically "unknown" I would posit that she would have human children. She may not actually be Kree In the trailer and film Yon-Rogg and the Supreme Intelligence tell her that she is part Kree. However, there isn't really much evidence for this. The main evidence is that she has blue blood but this only came from ...

Camouflage A big benefit of being able to change your colours on the fly would be so that you can camouflage yourself into your surroundings. We don't see them do this in the film, if I remember correctly, but they didn't really need to. It makes for a massive advantage over the enemy to be able to seamlessly adapt to your surroundings. Remember that Yon-...

The bottom answer was "correct" at the time of the trailer, however, it is not necessarily the true answer now. The true answer would appear to be because she was given Kree blood and her powers come from the Space Stone. Kree blood is said to have regenerative powers so this could have helped her not age. Another noteworthy trait is their highly potent ...

After having a look around and flicking through various books I have found that this is answered in Marvel's Captain Marvel: The Art Of The Movie. In it Andy Park says that because her uniform is that of a Starforce member and a soldier it didn't make sense to have the sash. He relates that it would be very impractical and that there would have to be a story ...

I myself wondered about this for a while and have come up with a few possible reasons. The suit was based on Monica's t-shirt The suit was based on Monica's t-shirt which was red, blue and had a star on it. As such it seems likely that Carol kept the star as a reference to this as well as the other reasons. Click to enlarge and see the full image. She ...

No In Avengers: Endgame her powers seem as they were in Captain Marvel and after a few more years honing her skills they seem stronger even. Almost certainly not Her powers come from the Space Stone inside of the Tesseract not the Tesseract itself so breaking the Tesseract shouldn’t really have any affect on her powers. She also absorbed the powers of the ...

Maybe, but we don't really know, there's no real detail to these things. What do you determine as the "full power"? For example, with the Reality Stone, is the full power changing all of Knowhere to look different, turning Drax and Mantis into something else or the illusions of Titan? The main point is he used a lot of power of the Power Stone, most likely ...

The power discharge that changed her is coming from a broken light speed engine, harnessing power from the Space Stone while the Stone is contained in the Tessaract. The end result of this is clearly that the energy Carol is hit by is changed in some way so as not to be fatal. There is plenty of precedent in the MCU for tools and containers allowing safe(r) ...

From what we know of the Infinity Stones, both from the comic and cinematic universes, they’re kind of intrinsic features of reality. The Space Stone took the form of the Tesseract at one time, but anything the Tesseract can do (like providing Captain Marvel’s power) is due to the Space Stone, which still exists as part of the Infinity Gauntlet. Presumably ...

The short answer here is because Carol Danvers, as Captain Marvel, has the ability to fly and breathe in space. This first came about in Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 Issue 164 when she transforms into Binary and we see her blast out of a space ship into outer space without anything protecting her face. Click image to enlarge. She then mostly keeps that power, we ...

Although all the stars look similar, they're different for each member of the Kree Starforce team. So they are kind of like personal heraldry for each "warrior hero". This Reddit post illustrates the differences. So she wouldn't change her personal insignia as it's unique to her. I guess it was just lucky she has the coolest, most-iconic design.

Her children would likely be human. The Kree do say that she is only part Kree, having been given Kree blood transfusions, just like Coulson and Daisy in the Agents of SHIELD universe. This does not convert them to become a Kree. Her base body and DNA are still pretty much human.

In Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, we never see Captain Marvel use the same sort of portal-like travel as Thanos does. However, we do see instances where she appears to travel very quickly: and So, can she travel quickly? Yes. Can she use portals? Probably not.


8

Your confusion is natural with regard to Carol Danvers. She has a very convoluted history (involving Rogue from the X-Men). She originally was an unpopular character and she went through several iterations, powers and costumes (i.e. Binary) before finally becoming popular as Warbird/Ms Marvel and then finally settling on the name Captain Marvel. You can ...

From Wikipedia, emphasis mine: Carol Danvers has been labeled "Marvel's biggest female hero" and "quite possibly Marvel's mightiest Avenger". ... Carol Danvers initially possessed superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, physical durability, a limited precognitive "sixth sense", and a perfectly amalgamated human/Kree physiology that ...

While a bit political, this Vox article does a good job explaining the history of Captain Marvel. Captain Mar-Vell (people generally called him Marvel) was a Kree. That's this guy: Carol Danvers was originally someone who worked with Mar-Vell (Marvel Superheroes #13). She even had a romantic relationship with the Kree version. Later, she had a run-in with ...

We do see her bleed blue during the film. It happens during her memory flashback AND during her captivity with the Skrulls. The Kree may lie to her about giving her the cosmic powers (that she gets from the Tesseract), but they are not lying to her regarding what they have done with her physiology in order to save her life after the accident (she wouldn't ...

After a bit of a look around and trying to remember what the different colour schemes were I have found out the following. However, they might not be exact ones because of this but I think they are pretty much right and were the ones shown. Red/Black - Ms. Marvel This is a reference to Carol's origins as Ms. Marvel. Click to enlarge. Black/Silver - ...

This raises the (In-Universe) question of why does the Kree suit even have coloring changing functionality in the first place if all Kree are green? Camouflage is the most likely answer - the ability to blend in to different environments and societal norms (e.g., not just urban vs. woodland, but Kree city clothing vs. Xandar city clothing, etc.) The ...

You've kind of answered your own question by pointing out the fact that, in the movie, she does appear to acknowledge the audience, and that the directors intentionally allowed it to be perceived that way. There is quite a lot written about comic characters breaking the fourth wall, and it certainly isn't limited to the well-known example of Deadpool. ...

1940: Gale Allen of the Women's Space Battalion. Written by Fred Nelson (house name?). Introduced in Planet Comics #4, April 1940, p. 55. We learn her rank in Planet Comics #5, May 1940, first panel on p. 15, when a subordinate addresses her as "Captain Allen": BEG PARDON, CAPTAIN ALLEN. MIDWAY FLOAT BEING ATTACKED—YOU ARE TO PROCEED THERE AT ONCE!

Carol entered the atmosphere flying incredibly fast and full of energy going straight for Sanctuary II. It doesn't matter if they knew what/who was coming at them they merely followed the best course of action to try and protect themselves. They essentially have two options and it doesn't matter if it was a person, a spaceship or a missile: Shoot it down: ...

Decidedly not. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force ... nothing. Hence its name, the Power Stone represented the destructive nature of the universe, and was incredibly powerful, capable of annihilating entire planets. The Power Stone was used by the Celestial being Eson the Searcher to destroy planets and ...

Perhaps I'm being a bit technical, but I don't believe Carol, or other space-fairing, non terrestrial beings like the Silver Surfer, Nova, Thanos, and even DC heroes like Superman actually "breathe" in space, per se; they function in space and their muscles may actively pull in and out... but with no known atmosphere, they aren't technically "breathing." As ...

Carol can travel insanely fast. The fastest on screen example of this we see is at the end of Captain Marvel when she leaves Earth with the Skrulls and can easily keep up with the ship going at what appears to be lightspeed. However, we know she can't travel instantaneously so there is some cap to her speed. We know this ...

Unknown 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.

I think the implication from the movies so far is that the Stones themselves are the sources of power. The Tesseract — like the Orb which contained the Power Stone in Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange's amulet with the Time Stone in it, or Loki's staff and Vision holding the Mind Stone — was apparently just a container for the Stone. As such, Carol's ...
