    "This is the best Captain Marvel comic to read before watching the movie. This explains how Carol Danvers received the mantle from the original Captain Marvel quite well. A must read for sure."

    "This comic will surely give you a familiar vibe if you've already watched the MCU's movie version of the Civil War. We get to get who Carol Danvers is as a person and the principles and beliefs that she stands for."

    "This is a great expression and show of girl power in the Marvel universe. A-Force brings together some of the biggest heroines from the comics and led by Captain Marvel, Medusa, and She-Hulk. Here's to hoping they make a movie on this is things go well with the Captain Marvel movie."

    "Before there was a Captain Marvel, there already exists Ms. Marvel with Kree-augmented powers and a hero in her own right. She Carol Danvers as who she was and what kind of heroine she was before receiving the mantle of Captain Marvel."

    "Carol Danvers has a long and sometimes convoluted history in relation to the Captain Marvel mythos full of unanswered questions and plotholes. This comic addresses those and then some."
