I have to admit, I didn't like her new costume when I first saw it. But it quickly grew on me. And I had to draw her in her classic Ms. Marvel costume for the bg pic.

update: so we changed her right hand since several people pointed out that it looked like she was copping a feel on her old self lol.
and we got featured on Best Art Ever (This Week) over at ComicsAlliance.com - [link]
named marcus which cause her to quit the avengers for awhile as she feels she cant trust them no more. she also can be in denial about her feelings or things she feel are minor in general causing it to bite her in the butt later. she kind of is prejudice against mutants after whole bad experience with mystique and rogue (back when she was an evil bitch) as they temporary took her powers and nearly left her for dead. she also has a short temper and is easily angered and annoyed if something goes wrong ( word of advice guys do not ever get a woman like this pissed at u. u die for real as she can literally bench press a plane.) she is also a recovered alcoholic and went in depression as she lost her powers and once been raped by marcus. other than those flaws tnat i find very relatable and sad at the same time she is one lady i would love to see in a movie one day and can save my ass anytime. lol
Carol Danvers grew up as the oldest child of three in a traditional Boston home, with a contractor father who believed in the merits of hard work. When he built their Cape Cod summer home, Carol insisted on working as hard as her two younger brothers, trying to make equal in her father's eyes. A voracious reader, she dreamed of becoming an astronaut and traveling to distant planets; as a teen she even hitchhiked to Cape Canaveral to view a launch there. Her father however, could not accept women as men's equals, and when financial troubles meant he could only send one child to college, he chose middle child Steve despite Carol's superior grades. Carol graduated from high school first in her class and took a sales job. She turned 18 just a few months later, and the following day she turned her back on her father and joined the Air Force, intending to be a pilot and to get a college degree via the military. Her brother Steve's death in military action would eventually draw Carol back to her family, but she still never felt truly accepted by her father. (yeah her old man was basically a hatin ass bastard who was mad she was a girl. of all the sexist shit! im a guy and im offended there are assholes like this in life. sorry ladies but not all guys are assholes just so were clear ok?) Anyways she quickly rose to the top of her Air Force class and was recruited into military intelligence (Special Operations) and trained as a spy. She accomplished many different missions and worked with other figures such as Logan (later Wolverine) and Benjamin Grimm (later the Thing), while oppressing others such as Victor Creed (later Sabretooth), and Natalia Shostakova (later the Black Widow). NASA eventually requested her for an open position as head of security which she accepted, resigning from the Air Force bumping her to full Colonel at retirement. Becoming the youngest security captain in NASA's history, she became embroiled in the schemes of the interstellar alien Kree Empire. It was during this time that she met and eventually befriended the Kree soldier Mar-Vell whose enemies would soon be responsible for her future transformation. The next few months were disastrous as she was kidnapped by the alien robotic intelligence Cyberex and then hospitalized by a controlled Iron Man who attacked the Cape.The alien Yon-Rogg then kidnapped her while she was still concussed and eventually battled Mar-Vell. During this battle, Carol was knocked into a damaged Kree Psyche-Magnitron, a powerful device which could turn imagination into reality. Carol's genetic structure was altered effectively making her a half-Kree superhuman. She was unaware of this change for months.
Her successful career at NASA was severely damaged because of these recent events. Due to her continued inability to control superhuman incursions, she was removed and reassigned to a minor NASA facility near Chicago. Even this did not last as Carol was demoted to a mere security guard and returned to Cape Canaveral after the superhuman Nitro had raided the base. Due to her plummeting career, she resigned from NASA. (that is some injustice bullshit right there man. how can they even hold her accountable for that? jeesus the world we live in!!) Now living off an accumulated salary, Carol wrote an angry tell-all expose on NASA, burning many bridges. The best selling book briefly made Carol a celebrity and she began working as an editor for many national magazines like Rolling Stone. However, she developed a dual personality due to the Psyche-Magnitron's alterations. She would black out and become a Kree warrior, instantaneously donning a costume in which the Psyche-Magnitron had created for her to ease her body's changes. She continued to experience these blackouts, but they did not stop her from pursuing her career as a writer and editor. She took the name Ms. Marvel after Mar-Vell. Her fragmented mind eventually recovered with the help and treatments of the extradimensional Hecate and the Kree Ronan the Accuser. She established herself as one of New York's premiere superheroes working with Spider-Man, the Defenders, and the Avengers. She would later be a full time and honary member of the Avengers for years to come.
Are you also a fan of Kamala Khan as the new Ms. Marvel?
IMHO she looked much better in her shiny black quasi-'dominatrix' outfit, which showed much more skin.
Also, calling her "CAPTAIN Marvel," that strikes me as sacrilege to the memory of Mar-Vell... --C.K.
Well, I've been reading it pretty much lately--yes, the name change was mentioned and there was a 'flashback' involving Mar-Vell himself, but I didn't especially 'buy' the explanations given by Marvel Comics Group.
I'm putting up with it, though, giving the new name/comic a chance, but I still dislike the idea... --C.K.
Just to be 'crystal clear,' your drawing of Carol's new outfit actually makes it more appealing than the way it's been rendered in the comic book, as I see it.
Maybe Marvel Comics Group should engage you to draw the "Captain Marvel" comic covers... --C.K.
BTW, I read your published comments (which accompanied this particular artwork) in "Captain Marvel" #5, and it's apparent that you enjoy the recent changes in the character much more than I do--but a difference of opinion is "what makes a horse race," after all.
Your rendition here makes the costume look better than it does in the comic book, I'm thinking--but I don't care for her short hair, to me that's a waste of her flowing golden blonde tresses... --C.K.
I like the redesign except for two things; one her hair is just ridiculous it would be one thing if it were just short or in a pony tail but its slicked back in some ridiculous way like that one scene from arrested development, and two I wish they had included her lightning bolt in the captain marvel costume.
the hair, before her series came out looked like it was chopped off. in her series it wasn't so thats good. i like that her hair makes the fin of the kree helmut when she uses it.
