TRDL 2012 Series No. 24 - Captain Marvel

TRDL 2012 Series No. 24 - Captain Marvel

This was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers, specifically the new 2013 costume design that was recently announced.

When I saw the first piece released at a recent convention (as drawn by Ed McGuinness, below) I was quite taken with it. I love the Steve Rogers, Super Soldier costume he was using for the last few years prior to unnecessarily taking up the mantle of Captain America again, and this design follows that one fairly closely, with the symbol in the chest and the striping working up to, and around, the shoulders. Apparently Marvel got a lot of random criticism over the hair and confirmed, or retconned (or preconned?) that it’s just her normal hair pulled back… which I thought was exceptionally rational. The concept for this iteration of Captain marvel is a move towards the ‘Chuck Yeager’ character model… some sort of adventurous derring-do. I don’t know. But I generally liked the costume.
