    There were some halfway decent elements BUT:

    No chronological placement.
    No clear idea why this is hyped as "THE DEFINITIVE ORIGIN OF CAPTAIN MARVEL!" (yet). Maybe it was that Mar-Vell HANDED her, her powers?
    No footnotes or objectives with Moonstone or Tanalth (making it Revolving Door trope and tripe).
    No way for a hero like her to treat your family - snubbing them for YEARS.

We've known about it before, and it's not entirely her fault. Remember, after Rogue, she had no emotional connection to her memories for years. In fact, this is about the first inkling of any emotional connection.

    No big deal if her father was having an affair, considering her history/line-of-work, to get that traumatized by it.

It's always a huge deal when it's your own father.

    No pleasure in accepting such easypeasy accelerated growth for new characters to show up.
    No mention of: AFSS position and responsibilities, her brainwipe issues, operating logistics with (current version) Tony's A.I. operating, point about her CWII animosity with Tony at all, mention of her boyfriend's Rhodey's resurrection...

    ...No, thanks.


She goes away from the new Avengers team and the AFSS for 9 months?! How's that going to be explained?

Some problems, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be.

City of Heroes is BACK!
