not yet.>how long until that happens?
beats me, but if it does happen, it will be in Spider-Woman. the most recent issue has some interesting developments. >she hasn't been much of a character at all. she's a stand-in for "feminism" and that doesn't actually have any meaning,
you're right. KSD made her incredibly bland. Pretty much all long-term Carol fans (including me) hated her for that.
I became a Carol fan during Brian Reed's Ms. Marvel run. While imperfect and uneven, Reed took the time to dig into her character. The Cru arc is what sold Carol for me -- temporarily possessed by an alien, Carol is forced into her own subconscious, where she comes face to face with the fact that she is not a nice person. At all. After I became a fan, I read back through Carol's old stories, and that dark core has always been there. Carol is not nice. In fact, she's pretty damn mean sometimes. Heroing does not come naturally to her. As we all know, KSD just ignored all that, though to be fair the second half of her Captain Marvel run is better.
Why am I typing this wall of text? Because I wanted you to understand why I like Carol and why recent developments are good (for a change). The arc Fazekas and Butters wrote was quite good. The Carol they wrote is like a combination of Reed's and KSD's. She's got her shit together, but she tends to regress under stress. Her dark side is back. She quips, but it doesn't dominate the story. Issue #0 of "Mighty Captain Marvel" was decent. It wasn't perfect -- there were a few annoying moments, and the dream sequence was predictable. But the basics of Carol, her dark side, her problems, etc. are there. I'd encourage you to read Fazekas/Butter's "Rise of Alpha Flight" trade paperback. Judge for yourself.
Oh, and if Stohl starts that "YAAS QUEEN" shit I'll be the first one to tear her a new asshole.
