Stunners of the Day 10: Captain Marvel and Vance Astro.

Word is coming out about the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.  We’ll have more on that later, but the speculation today is that only two characters could possibly fit into the script details.  Carol Danvers or Vance Astro.

Carol Danvers gets a whole assortment of powers while getting caught in a battle with the Kree aliens.  She was an agent of SHIELD, and thus already immersed in the world of super heroics.  She is for a shorthand, Marvel’s Wonder Woman.  Or a female Superman.  Over time she has been known under many names.  The most well known are Ms Marvel and currently, Captain Marvel.  She has been a member of both SHIELD and the Avengers, and the X-Men space pirate spin off team the Starjammers.  Carol could easily fit anywhere in the Marvel movie universe.


Vance Astro was an astronaut of modern times.  Astro’s mission to the nearest star took 1000 years.  After all that time his latent mutant abilities emerged.  He uses his powers of psychokinesis, the ability to affect matter with his mind, to battle enemies of the future.  Vance has been a part of multiple versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Without going into too much detail with Marvel’s many variant timelines, he has been in the present and the future and any possible version of him could fit into the movie universe.
