Is Captain Marvel Actually a Hero?


Check out FEE’s newest Common Sense Soapbox video, “Why Canceling Student Loans Is Bad for Everyone'”:

What makes a superhero?

Is it simply strength? Is it power? Or do we only become heroic when we do heroic things?

As Marvel Studio’s newest film, “Captain Marvel” hits theaters, this episode of Out of Frame looks at Carol Danvers’ actions and motivations in some of the more recent comics to find out if she is actually a heroic character.

NOTE: There are no spoilers for the MCU film in this video (we haven’t seen it yet), but there are spoilers for Marvel’s Civil War and Civil War II story lines in the comics.

Brie Larson is not a hero, and the way she plays El Capitan is not heroic either.

Oh, and if Marvel can use the energy from stars, how does this differ from Superman who uses the light (energy) of a star (our sun)?

I really hate that people are using this video which is meant to address the problem with safety vs freedom as an excuse to attack Carol Danvers. Every person in marvel comics history has been an asshole at one point or another!

Did Iron Man make a shoop reference?

So, Carol is self righteous disrespectful and unlikable in the comics, much like Bree Larson irl. So did Marvel actually make an accurate and solid casting choice?

As much as Captain Marvel is made out as despicable- Tony’s also being just as petty as she is.

TONY, WarMachine is a solider- he’s not a child and Captain Marvel didn’t put a gun to his head and made him do it. He damn well knows the risks as all of them do when they do there thing. He understood every time he suits up, follows orders, and makes direct efforts to save others-chances are he’ll be horribly injured or worse. I understand he’s grieving and upset but that shits not on Captain Marvel for doing her job of protecting earth from alien threats.

Because she was lead to believe there was an alien threat- she and her soldiers went to confront it. All of there own free will and knowledge of the risks, and that she can’t be expected to protect all of her soldiers.

Also with the fact the minute Tony has a disagreement with an accomplished and respected military officer he instantly tries to make himself look right by kidnapping Ulysses from under her. Then tries to act like she struck preemptively when in reality he’s the one who went behind her back and stole away a highly dangerous inhuman he planned to experiment on against that said in humans own will.

So yeah- Tony’s not a saint here either and he’s just as capable of being narcissistic and self-righteous.

Blue Marvel should fight her in the MCU. That'll be awesome

"Carol Danvers is consitently willing to toss aside every legal and ethical standard of due process, including its most basic foundation: the presumption of innocence "
Seems like mah cheese brie was the perfect casting option if you know what i mean.

The Captain Marvel movie was lame and she had next to no emotion or personality and didn't learn anything throughout the film
