‘Captain Marvel’ #32 sets a strong stage

This arc is an interesting opportunity for more interactions between the Marvel-family characters.

“The Last of the Marvels” has been a highly-anticipated event from Kelly Thompson’s Captain Marvel run, one that seeks to honor the legacy of the Captain Marvel mantle while giving Carol one of her biggest challenges yet. Issue #31 was mostly a laid-back issue, but issue #32 really begins to set the stage for the arc.

One of the best things about this issue is how it’s entirely from Carol’s POV, taking a break from the more cast-oriented issues we just experienced. Carol’s monologues are good — but by now, most people already know Kelly Thompson has a great grasp on this character.

What makes issue #32 such an intriguing read is finding out who is behind the Vox Supreme costume, and seeing Carol’s reactions as she tries to save her. This is the first signal that “The Last of the Marvels” won’t just be Carol’s arc — it’s Captain Marvel‘s arc. And yes, Captain Marvel means everyone who has ever held the title.

That being said, it’ll be nice to see the different mantle holders come together and be in this story arc together. After all, Carol isn’t the only person to ever hold the Captain Marvel title, she’s simply the most recent. This arc seems like an interesting opportunity for more interactions between the Marvel-family characters, all while honoring the history of the mantle.

Sergio Davila’s pencils are a great choice for this title, with certain panels looking quite striking. So far, this arc is off to a promising start, and hopefully, it will continue on strong footing.
