Captain Marvel in Marvel Comics
The trademark Captain Marvel was gained in the late 1960s following a dispute with DC Comics.
Marvel has been publishing a Captain Marvel every few years in order to retain the trademark.
Gene Colan and Roy Thomas wrote and created the first Captain Marvel story, which appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes #12, December 1967. The character, Captain Mar-Vell, is a military officer of the Kree Imperial Militia sent to observe the developing space technology on Planet Earth.
Mar-vell, branded a traitor, allies himself with Earth, whom He defends from all threats after learning of the intent of his superiors.
Gil Kane and Roy Thomas revamp the character after he was exiled by supreme intelligence to the Negative Zone. The only way of escaping the Negative Zone is by Mar-vell agreeing to exchange atoms with a human, Rick Jones, using special wristbands called Nega-Bands.
Captain Marvel is enhanced with some superpowers. He is given a new uniform that is customized with form-fitting costume instead of the military uniform.
Jim Starlin revamped the character freeing Mar-Vell from the Negative Zone as the “Protector of the Universe”.
The Cosmic entity Eon appoints Mar-Vell to protect and defend the universe. Rick and Mar-Vell battle Thanos and other galactic threats.
Elysius becomes Mar-Vell’s lover after he has become an ally of the Titans. However, his career is curtailed by cancer from an earlier battle with Nitro, where he was exposed to toxic nerve gas.
Mar-Vell succumbed to his death in the company of the Superhero community. His death was published in the year 1982 as ‘The Death of Captain Marvel’.
Characters taking on the role of Captain Marvel include:

Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel
Carol Danvers, an ex Air force pilot, had her life transformed. She transformed into a hybrid, blessed with extraordinary powers.
Carol is one of the world’s bravest heroes after she had embraced and taken the position of Captain Marvel.
Kree and the Skrulls tried to infiltrate Kennedy Space Center, but thwarted by Carol Danvers as a NASA security officer.
Danvers was exposed to Pysche-Magnitron, a device that could turn imaginations into reality. Having envied the powers of Mar-vell, Carol’s DNA was rewritten by the machine to make her have similar abilities to Mar-vell.
Carol fought side by side with the Avengers and Mar-Vell. Her career, however, was to be short-lived as she was attacked and had her memories and powers drained permanently by a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
After several years had passed, she eventually recovered from this ordeal and achieved her long-term dream of exploring space. Danvers took on the codename Binary after she had become cosmically empowered.
Carol was left with her original abilities after the binary powers faded off, prompting her return to Earth, where she joined the Avengers. She took the name Captain Marvel after the passing of her mentor and friend. She has become prominent, and Captain Marvel is now a popular Heroine.
Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
A former Air force pilot of the States named Carol Susan Danvers obtained cosmic powers and was exposed to Tesseract energy through the light speed engine’s destruction.
A blood transfusion was carried out on Yon Rogg that made Carol a Kree-Human Hybrid. She had her memories removed and turned into a member of Starforce and a Kree weapon.
Captain Marvel Movie
Vers, who the Skrull captured, returned to Earth and started to remember her past with the help of Maria Rambeau and Nick Fury.
She discovered that the Kree and Yon-Rogg manipulated her for several years. She learned that the Skrulls were searching for a new home from Talos.
Having this information, Carol refused her Vers Persona. After unlocking her powers, she defeated the Kree invasion under Ronan the Accuser.
She then vanished off to the far reaches of the Galaxy to continue the work of her late mentor Mar-Vell. In taking on the role she named herself Captain Marvel in his honour.
Captain Marvel spent twenty-three years travelling through the universe. She received the distress call sent by Nick Fury which alerted Captain Marvel of the Thanos Snap.
Captain Marvel came to join the Avengers as they confronted Thanos and try to reverse the damages that had been done.
On the way to Earth, Captain Marvel was able to rescue Nebula and Tony stark who were stranded in deep space.
The first attempt to find the stones failed. However, the second attempt was successful, as the Avengers managed to resurrect the Snap victims and fight against Thanos from an alternate timeline.
Captain Marvel and the Avengers eventually triumphed over the forces of Thanos, however Iron Man lost his life in the final battle. Before leaving Earth, Danvers attended Tony Stark’s funeral.
