Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers might be a photon-blasting heroine of justice in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it looks like Captain Marvel is heading towards a much darker path in the comics.
Revealing The Last Avenger arc for the current Captain Marvel series, Marvel Comics has been showcasing a different direction for Carol Danvers, forcing Carol to go on a mission to kill the Avengers. Though we can’t be quite sure yet why she has to get rid of the Avengers or the events that lead up to the mission she embarks on, the new December Solicitations from Marvel Comics reveal that Captain Marvel may have actually killed at least one Avenger.
Marvel has a new description for Captain Marvel #13, and the synopsis reads:
One Avenger is dead at Captain Marvel’s hand. Who will be next? And why? What strange allegiance is driving Captain Marvel to the darkest edge?
The cover art for Captain Marvel#13 also seems pretty dark, featuring Carol Danvers in bloody red and black hues.

ComicBook.com was able to speak with Captain Marvel writer Kelly Thompson for a short interview, and the comic book writer teased that her series is going to push Carol Danvers to the furthest edge.
"I think it’s going to be a terrific Carol story that really highlights her strengths as a character – and maybe some weaknesses as well,” the writer explained, “Issue 12 is unlike any script I’ve written for Marvel before and unlike any Carol story I’ve ever read. It’s a little risky but I’m excited. I hope people love it."
She isn’t wrong. The Captain Marvel series has been doing pretty well with sales going up. Are you excited for Captain Marvel #13? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
