Captain Marvel to Be Relaunched with Beautiful Creatures Author
Captain Marvel has been reaching greater prominence ever since her feature film was announced, and especially since she started facing off against Iron Man in Civil War II. Now, Marvel has announced that Carol Danvers' individual series will be relaunched, this time written by Beautiful Creatures author Margaret Stohl.

Captain Marvel

The series will launch in early 2017, although a specific release date has yet to be set, and will be illustrated by Ramon Rosanas, best known for his work on Astonishing Ant-Man. It will primarily focus on the fallout of the events of Civil War II, which (as in real life) has made Carol Danvers a household name, and that comes with some unpleasant consequences. 

Opening quote
"She will be one of the most popular heroes on the planet-but that's not something she is very comfortable with," Stohl told THR. "And of course she's lost a lot of folks that she's loved so she has to cope with that, too. That being said, she still has a job to do as commander of the Alpha Flight. Her latest mission being recruiting and training new cadets (which will give us some fun supporting cast members). It'll also bring with it a mysterious danger that will threaten everything Carol has built."

Stohl also stated that the series will be very different from anything we've seen from Carol before, mostly because she herself has changed significantly as a person and a superhero:

Opening quote
"She can't undo the events of Civil War II, and those events will have changed everything -- most of all Carol herself," said Stohl. "Captain Marvel has suddenly become a household name -- so what now? While she finds herself at the top of her game, she'll also discover that being there means that game is more dangerous and complicated than ever."
Closing quote

In addition to the Beautiful Creatures YA series, which became both a film starring Alden Ehrenreich and Emmy Rossum and a TV show on Freeform called Shadowhunters, Stohl made her Marvel publishing debut with the prequel novel Black Widow: Forever Red. The novel received positive reviews, and caught the eye of Marvel Comics editor Sana Amanat, who co-created Ms. Marvel.
