Addendum to Yo, Marvel. Here’s your Carol Danvers concept film

Title: Warbird (because I know you’re afraid of anything having the word Marvel in the title, and Binary doesn’t sound as badass)

Synopsis: US Air Force Colonel Carol Danvers (Anna Torv, Fringe) is about to hit forty, and ready to retire. Accompanied by War Machine James Rhodes (Don Cheadle, as seen in Iron Man 2 & 3), and suffering from a hangover, Danvers heads to the Nevada desert to investigate the crash landing of an unidentified aircraft. The last thing Danvers is in the mood for, is a run-in with smart mouthed SHIELD agent Jessica Drew (Lauren Cohan, The Walking Dead).

The second to last thing, is an alien spacecraft that seems to be phasing in and out of existence.


  • CAROL MOTHERFUCKING DANVERS. Needs no introduction.
  • James Rhodes. You need a character to springboard off? Airforce bros 4 lyfe yo.
  • Jessica Drew. SHIELD presence? Everyone’s favourite comics BrOTP? Secret SWORD agent who actually has crazy spider-powers? Done.
  • Abigail Brand. Alien badass extraordinare.
  • Yon-Rogg. Undercover crash-landed Kree soldier who landed on earth aeons ago. Some serious Area 51 shit, okay? Was sent to earth to find the Tesseract, but got stuck, and is steadily losing grip with reality.
  • Karla Sofen. Psychotic air force psychiatrist and profiler who joins forces with Yon-Rogg for some crazy reason or other.
  • Monica Rambeau. Coast Guard buddy of Carol and Rhodey. So badass she doesn’t need powers (yet)
  • Kit Renner and Kamala Khan. Kids who live in Carol’s apartment building. HUUUUGE fans of the badass airforce pilot lady.


Who needs Mar-Vell? Give Carol an origin story that isn’t tied to a dude. Bring together current MCU characters (Rhodey, maybe even Hill or Agent 13), with new characters based loosely on the comics. Use characters from various periods in Carol’s life.

I chose Warbird for a few reasons

  1. Because I really can’t see Disney wanting to actually put Marvel in the title of one of their films
  2. Seeing as my little idea for a Carol film doesn’t actually include Mar-Vell, it really doesn’t make sense to use either Marvel name
  3. Binary is probably her least known name in 616, and it is associated with very specific powers. I wanted to save it for a second Carol film called Warbird: Binary.
  4. Warbird is the name given to vintage military aircraft, and considering part of my premise is that Carol intends to retire, this has a lot of significance
  5. In the comics, Warbird was her alias during her battle with alcoholism in 616. Another thing I would like to see included in a film. It’s not often you see high functioning alcoholics who are women, portrayed in film.

Make this movie. MAKE IT.

Goddamnit, I’ll even write it for you. For free. Do it already.


Only problem with not liking art by douchebags is the sheer volume of douchebags who have created art.

Depressingly accurate.

Carol Danvers’ Lucky Hat (Pattern)


So here it is, Carol Corps!  The present I promised: 



Wait, what?  Where are you going???

Here, lemme ‘splain: 

That right there is Carol Danvers’ lucky hat, as knit for her by Grandma Rose in Captain Marvel Issue 9, which I know you are all going to have in your hot little hands come Wednesday the 16th.  

Here is the panel description for the hat’s first appearance: 

Carol walking toward camera about to turn a corner, Grandma Rose eating on the park bench behind her.  Carol is now wearing a ridiculous knit hat.  Something really bright and absurd, maybe with knit flowers all over it like one of those crazy old fashioned bathing caps.  

If such a thing is possible, the cat is smiling. 




Shut up. 

What I got you is the knitting pattern.  I commissioned my friend, the annoyingly talented and resourceful knitwear designer Nikol Lohr, to produce a pattern based on Filipe Andrade’s drawing and Jordie Bellaire’s colors.  I paid her in real money for the right to give you this pattern for free, so that, if you choose, you may produce one of these beauties for yourself (or, cajole one of your knitting friends to do it for you).  

Happy New Year, Carol Corps!! I love you. 

Download the pattern here and disseminate at will. 

Here’s Nikol modeling it. Isn’t she cute? 


This makes me kind of want to learn to knit…
