    I think I may have missed something but when exactly did Carol rejoin the Air Force. When her original series started I thought she was starting a new life after leaving the Air Force. It was mentioned one time in the Uncanny X-Men when she and Wolverine went to a military base and ran into Rogue after that it don't remember it been mentioned again until Reed used it during his run on the second Ms. Marvel book. If she was active all this time then shouldn't she be court marshalled for being AWOL during her time as Binary and a member of the Star Jammers?

    That what really gets in people's craw I think. The idea that she's "the best!" Do you prefer Spider-man? Lady Thor? Captain America? Well, too bad losers! Carol is #1 and your faves all suck.

    It's bad enough when DC does this with Bat-God, who actually has a rep to back it up. But with Carol its a hundred times worse because as far as feats go she really doesn't stack up against Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Sue Storm or Jean Grey. And yes, I know most of that list is guys, but it doesn't change the reality of the stories.

    What it looks like is that Carol gets a free pass to elite status just because she is a woman and Marvel wants to round things out. It's a noble goal, but they'd be better served by having her EARN that rank and not try to sell her as superior to every other hero.
    I thought it was because Carol has had such a bad hairdo for the last few years? :-p

    I think the 'do is merely the physical manifestation of her character devolution.
    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Because Marvel needed a scapegoat to take all the blame for the Inhumans' death cloud. Killing her would have made her a martyr. Much better for Marvel to turn her into the heel than admit they screwed up in the story department.

    Emma unapologetically did what was necessary for the right reasons and is denounced as a villain, while Carol does just as many awful things and is still treated as a hero in the Marvel Universe, it's a beautiful double standard.

    But despite that, I actually once liked Carol Danvers. Taking her off the board and resetting her so that she is more reminiscent of the version Brian Reed, Kurt Busiek, and Chris Claremont wrote about would definitely help fix the character.

    Instigating a war over peaceful solutions for is the complete opposite of necessary. If anyone should die it's the bitch who wanted a massacre even after the source of the conflict is wiped out. Everything Emma did was for herself because of a misguided grudge.

    @Michael you just had to open that Pandora's box.

    You know the best thing to do if your tired of publishers shoving things down your throat there's a simple solution for that: Don't buy it.

    Seriously if you don't like it that's fine but a big problem I've noticed with the Marvel fandom is the selfish attitude of: I don't like it, therefore no one else should have it.

    I know the original post was started almost a year ago, but how is Midnighter a "token"?

    It would have been better if she had just taken Medusa and Black Bolt out to space so she could sadistically enjoy watching them suffocate to death.

    He is not. And neither is Carol.

    It would have been better if Medusa had shattered Emma and gave the pieces to Mephisto for festering an unneeded conflict.

    I love when someone gets so fired up about a comic that they are reduced to spitting out profanities. As I said, the editors and/ or writers wanted a scapegoat, so they threw a character under the bus to make the Inhumans seem sympathetic. It's a cheap manipulative writing tactic that resulted in a poorly resolved storyline. Professional writers should be better than that.

    Lots of fans have already taken this advice, Why do think sales of Carol's title are in the toilet? If you are a fan of the current run, you should be begging people to try it, not chasing them away.

    Oh you mean what X-fans do with every Inhuman related title gets announced? Tell me did any give those fans a hard time when X-men Red was announced?

    If fans really took that advice then there shouldn’t be anyone hoping that anything Inhuman related crashes and burn.

    Who was it who had the X-Men attacked for trying to destroy the first cloud in DoX again?

    This is a very confusing post. "What X-fans do..." Not buy Inhumans books? Beg people to try Inhumans books? I can only guess by your tone that it probably has something to do with X-fans "chasing people away from Inhumans books, " but the phrasing makes it completely unclear.

    Besides, this thread is about Carol Danvers, we are getting completely off topic discussing the failure of the Inhumans books here.
