Marvel Needs To Follow Through On That Captain Marvel Superhero Tease

For those unfamiliar with Monica Rambeau, she debuted in the comics in 1982’s The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16. While serving in the New Orleans Harbor Patrol, Monica was forced to stop a dangerous weapon from being created, and during the process she was exposed to extra-dimensional energy that gave her the ability to absorb, project and transform into any kind of energy. Monica sought the Avengers’ help with understanding these new powers, and eventually she became a full-fledged member of the team, even leading them for a time. Monica was the second individual to go by Captain Marvel in the comics, but as the years passed, she also went by Photon and Pulsar, and is currently known as Spectrum. Since Maria Rambeau goes by Photon while flying in Captain Marvel, it’s a good bet this is the identity Monica will pick in the MCU. Monica hasn’t made any appearances outside of the comics yet, so transitioning from minor/supporting character to full-blown hero in this franchise would be a great way to significantly increase her fanbase.
