The latest addition to Avengers Forever is none other than Carol Danvers, but this Captain Marvel comes from a very different twisted Earth.
Marvel Introduces a New Captain Marvel Beater Variant in avengers forever.
A glimpse of writer Jason Aaron and artist Aaron Kuder avengers forever #9 shows an unreleased version of Carol Danvers, who dreams of her heroic variants across the multiverse. This Carol is a prisoner on an Earth populated by animal-human hybrids, and is seen disheveled and covered in mud with a large steel ball and chain attached to her neck by a thick metal collar. She stands ankle-deep in the mud along the banks of a river, working alongside several other prisoners while their thinly-dressed masters fire muskets into the air and shout at their captives.
The preview also shows a version of Captain Marvel hijacking a Hydra airship, throwing one of the crew overboard and knocking the others unconscious. Readers also see a prehistoric version of Carol riding a huge pterosaur and wearing a primitive shawl. Another is seen in her fighter pilot uniform, until her familiar superhero version finally appears through the air in her signature costume. Prisoner Carol explains that these are visions she experiences from different realities telling her that she is meant to fly, but on her Earth, “nothing good is allowed to fly”.
