There's one thing nobody has ever been able to accuse Carol of and that is being too damn smart.
Brave? Strong? Upright? Selfless? 100 points in each category.
Intelligent? 7 out of 10. I am not trying to sell her short, it genuinely is a quality of her. I don't know if it's intentional or not, it certainly is never emphasized, but once you start paying attention it becomes clear her strategy rarely consists of more than flying in and punching shit. This comic is an interesting and early exception, suggesting her character has degenerated over time.
You could actually do something with that: has her fusion with Kree DNA actually made her dumber?
Carol Danvers was smart and competent, and so was Mar-Vell, but do their meshing brain patterns interfere?
