“Kamala Can’t Be a Fan of Someone Who Didn’t Exist”
If you have been keeping up with the Marvel’s Avengers game, you know that Kamala Khan has joined the scene as the protagonist of the game. Though she an Avenger and an accomplished heroine on her own, it is hard to imagine her without Carol Danvers. So we have to ask ourselves, where is Captain Marvel? Just a bit of comic book history, Carol Danvers was the first Ms. Marvel. She did not start out her superhero career as Captain Marvel, and Kamala Khan took up the mantle of Ms. Marvel after Carol was “promoted”.
Kamala is also a Captain Marvel superfan. It’s why she wears the Ms. Marvel lightning bolt on her shirt as Carol Danvers did before her. ComicBook.com had the chance to talk to Cyrstal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos about this matter if Captain Marvel exists in the universe of Marvel’s Avengers. “We’ll put it to you this way, Kamala can’t be a fan of someone who didn’t exist,” Amos answered. That’s a pretty clear cut answer. He goes a little further into detail, “Kamala still writes fan fiction. She still knows everything there is to know about the Avengers and yes, Captain Marvel is still her favorite.”
Well, we know Captain Marvel is around, but we haven’t seen her in any trailers or gameplay footage, and we might not either. We do not know if she will be in the game, but Crystal Dynamics had hid Ms. Marvel from us for a few months; it’s not inconceivable that they do the same with Carol Danvers. There is also the possibility that she joins the Avengers via DLC. Marvel’s Avengers will be out on May 15th, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
