Captain Marvel - Earth's Mightiest Hero #17
If you haven't been reading Kelly Sue DeConnick's amazing Captain Marvel run, then you need to get out and buy the first two trades right now.
That being said, this finale for the current arc was inspiring, to say the least. I don't want to give too much away, but after Carol Danvers lost her memory at the end of Enemy Within she was left trying to put her life back together piece by piece. We saw some of that in the Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble Infinity crossover, but this issue really brings us back to her personal life away from the Avengers. Despite not remembering who the people helping her out, she still stays true to herself. She is just as caring and sassy as usual.
We are also introduced to a new villain for Captain Marvel. The (definitely insane) Grace Valentine. Not to worry though, the good citizens of New York along with Captain Marvel foil her plans. I am certainly interested to see what happens next with her and her vendetta against Captain Marvel.
One of the most exciting parts of this issue though, is the very last page, where we are introduced to the next Ms. Marvel. If you haven't heard about the new Marvel series coming out this February, read about it here.
And don't forget to jump on the Captain Marvel train in a few months for the new Captain Marvel re-start. Don't worry, DeConnick is still writing the Earth's Mightiest Avenger's leading title.
