TRDL 2010 Series No. 10 -Carol Danvers / Captain Mar-Vell

This was done for the Carol Danvers TRDL Art Jam. I’ve drawn this character a number of times, though in general I disliked her growing up. It’s not really her fault. Marvel’s writers never knew what to do with her, and really dragged her through the gutter of unpleasantness over the years, from powers-related assault and violation at the hands of Rogue (which was actually a very powerful narrative moment, and the last I remember liking her much) to the typical way in which most comic writers don’t know what to do with an unpowered character, to later being assaulted by her own SON, to the alcoholism and brash personality. Frankly, I think the character is due for some good times. That all said, I have been wanting to draw the Ultimate version of Carol and Captain mar-Vell since I read Ultimate Secret. It’s been on my to-do list for years now, so I finally got my chance…

UPDATE: As this was first published in 2010, there have been many exciting changes for this character, and I've drawn her current iteration a few times since, as well as going back to her original look from the 70s. I quite like her these days!
