I really wanted to like this book; I mean, give it five stars, but I just can't. It's not that it doesn't have its good qualities. I think Brian Reed is a promising writer and Lee Weeks made this one of the best illustrated Secret Invasion tie-in. It probably because the original Captain Marvel doesn't strike a chord with a fan base that grew up after his seminal graphic novel that featured his death from cancer. The character has been on the shelf for too long that the reader doesn't care about ...more

I actually liked this book a lot. I had never heard of the Marvel Comic's Captain Marvel and the guy at my comic shop recommended it. I see that it has lower reviews and it seems that they may have been familiar with this hero and his past storyline. With me going into it with no expectations, it was an entertaining read.

My only memory of Captain Marvel (the Marvel Comics version, not the Fawcett/DC version with the jaunty white cape over one shoulder) from my youth was seeing Jim Starlin's 1982 graphic novel The Death of Captain Marvel on the shelf at my local comic store and not purchasing it. He's almost completely a product of the '70s, and was never on my radar.

This mini-series from last year did little to change my feelings about Captain Marvel. For the most part, I found it uninteresting and plodding. App

This book introduces a new Captain Marvel that shows up in the Civil War crossover and takes him up to Secret Invasion crossover. It's weird Marvel even bothered to create this character, because he's not really integral to either story. This little tale of identity confusion and the efficacy of super powers is interesting, but not as good as Brian Reed's work on Ms. Marvel. The subplot with a Paris Hilton-type character running a church deifying Captain Marvel doesn't really make much sense.

I know, I know.... In Marvel universe, nobody stays dead. But why the return-to-life-story can be done this badly? To crap on the tragic dead and to totally ignore the Peter David series about Captain Marvel's son totally.
This was bad.

A story that tried too hard to bring Captain Marvel back. It's a graphic novel that you just want to hurry up and get to the next page or last page not because it's good but because you just want to be done with it.

They could have have left him for dead but they brought him back to life anyway. Captain Marvel will always be one of my favourite characters but this arc was way too rushed with him returning from the Civil War arc and joining the Secret Invasion arc without much explanation.

Sin ser una gran historia, ni tener un superdibujo, me gustó mucho más que Invasión Secreta. Más conciso, más creíble, y menos inflado.

Recommends it for: Marvel Comics fans!
If ever there was an example of a promising idea that didn't get enough time to completely pan out, this was it. The idea of a religion formed around the reappearance of a once dead hero is a great idea. Add to that the possibility of him being a Skrull in disguise is fantastic. The problems lie with the reader being more confused the the characters as to what's going on, and then the completely abrupt ending. Also, the addition of random S.H.I.E.L.D. agents was unnecessary. I like the the art a ...more

Nice artwork..

Teasing us with the return of a time-lost Captain Marvel, this story of the Secret Invasion saga provides with a look at the power of memory - and its ability to be used for good or ill. Believed to be plucked from the past, Mar-Vell makes his presence known in the modern Marvel Universe. Beseiged by long-dead villains and tortured by a classical painting, Mar-Vell must uncover the truth behind his return - and make a fateful choice

2 1/2 stars. Well, I love the Manchurian Candidate and don't especially care for the Marvel Civil War event. Combine those two and you have Captain Marvel's Secret Invasion story. Not bad, but it's been done before.

Better than it should be. That's about all there is to say about this as all the Secret Invasion titles are pretty disappointing.
