Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, has taken down some of the Marvel Universe's heaviest hitters, but there is a force that still makes even her uneasy: magic. Unfortunately for her, it's the secret weapon of Ove, a despotic villain from an alternate future who's traveled back in time to wreak havoc in Captain Marvel's present day. In order to take on Ove, whose Asgardian and Atlantean heritage means he's powerful even without his knowledge of sorcery, Carol must confront her feelings about magic and the traumatic nature of her enemy's dystopian future to succeed.
Carol took the first steps towards overcoming her magic fears in the current three-part "Strange Magic" arc of Captain Marvel, which kicked off with issue #28 by writer Kelly Thompson and artist Jacopo Camagni. In #28, Carol attempted to become Doctor Strange's apprentice, adopted a new magic-inspired costume and reached out to Ove's future mother Enchantress.
In an interview with CBR, Thompson discussed these magical developments for Carol Danvers, the upcoming milestone of Captain Marvel #30 and teased where Carol Danvers is headed after the "Strange Magic" arc concludes in July.
