If there’s ever been a time in Marvel history that Tony Stark has been more of an ass than during the Civil War crossover event, then let me know. Discount all the drinking binges and hookers and ego on overdrive, have you ever had more of an urge to punch Stark in the face than here? Through the Stark blustering and posturing, Ms. Marvel aka Carol Danvers, slowly comes to a realization that rounding up unregistered superhero’s might be best for Stark’s agenda, but it might not be the “right” th ...more

It's good, but you're not going to be missing out on a Civil War plot line if you skip it, either. It's a pretty self-contained story. Carol proves herself to be a clone of Tony Stark, which really didn't do anything to endear her character to me.

Huh... Well, this is a decent read, but it's also painful in an "I don't want to see this happening" kind of way. My favourite Marvel hero is acting like everything's black-and-white and taking down her friends and it's uncomfortable. To be fair, she does feel conflicted about it later on, but I find it hard to believe Carol wouldn't question her stance more than she did in the book. There isn't really a resolution to that as the next section is a self-contained story about the multiverse and Ro ...more

This collection is marketed as part of the Civil War story arc. That is only half true as the first three issues dealt with that arc.

Out of all the Civil War companions that I have read this collection is the one I like the least. Part of the problem is that it wasn't totally devoted to the arc. In the three issues that deal with Civil War, Carol is on Iron Man's side and she is helping him enforce the Registration Act. We see her pursue several different heroes. These issues were okay but to m

The few issues in here that deal with the Civil War are awesome. There are so many good female characters and the writing is excellent. (The art is, of course, what you'd expect from comics books—which is to say pretty sexist.)

But as soon as we’re done with the event and go back to regular Ms. Marvel? Super downhill from there. The illustrations take a serious dive and the writing/story were so uninteresting that I skimmed through it pretty fast.

This is a shame, since most of these tie-ins make

2.75 stars. Very average Civil War story.

So the first half of the book is about Carol and Wonder Man catching Araña and training her as a registered hero. And they go after Arachne who has been acting up and doesn't agree with the SHRA. And take her away from her child.

The second half has an alternate universe Carol Danvers come in and ruin everything. They come to find out that she holds a grudge against Rogue for trying to kill her a while back. And so every time alternate Carol (aka Warbird)

This is the first Ms. Marvel I've ever read and I have to admit, I don't really like Carol, but I think that's because I believe in the opposite of what she was standing for in this.

The biggest problem I had with the whole Civil War storyline is that it didn’t seem very believable. You’d think the heroes had been through enough together that one would think it ultimately wouldn’t come to fighting fiercely against one another. The pro-registration arguments don’t come through very strongly and Stark’s side is just plain badly written. And well, what reader wants to see their favorite heroes become government pawns? It’s hard to believe they’d actually resort to the things th ...more

Definitely one of the stronger tie-ins to Marvel's Civil War crossover, because it builds on Brian Reed's strong characterization of Carol Danvers, Ms. Marvel. Still, the Civil War part, which brings in *great* guest stars like Arana, Arachne, the Shroud, and Wonder Man is the weaker part of the collection. In the second half, Ms. Marvel faces off with Rogue, the X-Man that once stole her powers, and an alternate-reality version of herself. The parallel-dimension bit and the last story, involvi ...more

In spite of featuring a number of B- & C-list characters (some of whom I'd never heard of), this Civil War tie-in shows us how the Super-Hero Registration Act affects the "little people", and somehow ends up being more engaging & interesting than other tie-ins featuring better-known characters like, say, Civil War: Fantastic Four. That, in itself, is quite a feat. It didn't make me a die-hard Carol Danvers fan, but at least I didn't feel like I'd wasted my time reading it.

Not the Ms. Marvel I was expecting. I liked the story but the fighting got tedious.

Decent enough, the Rogue and Warbird story is the real highlight. Otherwise nothing truly spectacular, but certainly not full either. Kind of rides that middle gray area.

The Marvel Civil War is an epic event that takes place after a team of superheroes accidentally cause a disaster which results in the deaths of hundreds of people. The government passes the Superhuman Registration Act into law so that all powered or costumed heroes can be governed and kept in check. Iron Man and others back the law, feeling they need to be held accountable for their actions. Meanwhile, Captain America leads a resistance against the law, which brings the two sides into conflict w ...more

One of my current reading projects is to tackle as many of the Marvel Civil War tie-ins as I can in honor of Captain America: Civil War. Carol Danvers is one of my all-time favorite Marvel heroes, so I may be being overly critical here, but I thought that this collection did her no favors. She's supposed to be, like, second-in-command of the New Avengers, but half of these issues have almost nothing to do with Civil War or the New Avengers. The first storyline here is GREAT. We see Carol take in ...more

The half of this volume that was a tie in with the Civil War event was pretty intense. I think of all of the Civil War stuff I've read this one showed the differences in doing what's "right" verses whats "best" and how that all ties in with living within a society of laws. At the end of the story, when they pull Julia Carpenter away from her kid to arrest her, I felt they had collectively gotten them selves into a situation where none of them could be doing the right thing, and things were even ...more

Oh dear, Carol. Unfortunately she's on Tony Stark's side of the Civil War and tasked with rounding round up those heroes that are fighting registration. Wonder Man is also helping out as her side-kick or whatever. He's really dull. Spider-Woman (Julie Carpenter) is the main target of this operation.. which means cruelly separating her from her daughter. It takes her FAR FAR too long to realised maybe this isn't the right thing to do.. It was frustrating.

She also ends up kind of mentoring a youn

A whole bunch of well-written female characters here - a single mom superhero, a latino teenager superhero... This is Kelly Sue before Kelly Sue. It really shows how this series (Ms Marvel, Captain Marvel...) has always been respectful with female characters (check the usage of 'Ms.' and the way they used it to make Ms Marvel "the first feminist superhero").

This Civil War tie-in is an interesting read. It gives more insight on the ethics of the superhero registration act and here you can apprec

Whose side is she on? As the events of Civil War tear apart the super-hero community, Carol Danvers must choose to enforce the new Super Hero Registration Act or face prison. Aided by fellow Avengers Iron Man and Wonder Man, and the teenage hero Arana, Ms. Marvel combats former allies Shroud and Arachne in an attempt to enforce a law she may not agree with. But to do what she thinks is right, will Ms. Marvel tear apart a family? Plus: Carol's days as Warbird and Binary come back to haunt her Ms. ...more

I'll admit that I haven't read Civil War (for a variety of reasons, but that's another review), but having been reassured that I could read this comic regardless, I picked it up. The Civil War bits were, well, depressing, but it was interesting to see the other superheroes involved and how they fit together. I liked the last, non-'War bits better.

What I do like about Ms Marvel, though, is that she doesn't always get it right but she always tries. Like in the ending of the trade -- she might have

I find it difficult to believe that Marvel is going to turn Carl Danvers into a movie. But hey its on the schedule. And we are headed to Civil War apparently as well. This was actually a pretty good book, good writing and good enough art - though I kind of hate th Ms. Marvel uniform. And Carol herself seems fairly one-dimensional and I'm not all that impressed with Wonder Man. Nice to see an earlier story on Anya aka Spider Girl. But this is definitely a middle story. 3.5 of 5 but one with some ...more

The reason why i like Batman Volume one Court of Owls part one was because it stuck to the point: the Court of Owls!
This Ms Marvel Volume 2 was even worse than Ms Marvel Volume 1. Jumping from story to story. She sees a new character that she follows for a while till she gets distracted by another character/storyline...and the whole goes off in a new tangent

Well, i had sworn i wouldn't pick up volume 3.

Collects Ms. Marvel issues #6-10 and Ms. Marvel Special #1

I picked this up because I've been trying to read some of the "Civil War" tie-ins, but this basically felt like a waste of time for me personally. I didn't think it added anything to the "Civil War" storyline, it just reiterated that Carol Danvers sold out by joining Iron Man's side of the superhero Civil War.

There were some other short stories (one that looked interesting featuring Rogue and an alternate Carol Danvers), but overall I wa

Only touches on a bit of the Civil War. With Carol siding with Iron Man's side. Not really probing that deeply into that conflict within Carol over the warring sides before moving onto the next story with Rogue and a Warbird from another dimension. Still, it's compelling reading that I gulped down in one go.

I read the newest reprint of this book and its spine doesn't match the rest of the Ms. Marvel series. Instead it is a Civil War spine. Not happy about that. I wonder if the first printing ha

A by the numbers addition to both the Civil War storyline, Marvel graphic novels collection and Ms Marvel series that does nothing with the titular charter or Civil Wars storyline. Really a textbook example of how with a mediocre writer, characters like Carol can go no where and move no one.

The last story in this collection was a little more interesting in terms of links to Wanda Maximoff - but plot wise fell short. Like a Kmart dress on a customised handcarved coat hanger, draping a plain stor

I loved this collection with it's three variants of Ms Marvel - is she Binary, Warbird or Ms Marvel?

I love the whole Civil War aspect too, and the tensions that it creates between all the super folk.

I had never read a Ms Marvel comic up until this one, and I was pleased with it. Enough to start wanting to delve into the back catalogue and discover her adventures.

Can't wait for a movie version!

So it turns out that most supper heroes are little more than lap dogs for the U.S. military industrial complex, which sort of sucks when you think about it and Ms. Marvel isn't as lame Iron Man in this major comic event (who could be?) but she is still pretty lame even with some bootylicious renderings of the masked crime fighter. No matter how much time Ann Coulter spends at the gym she will still be Ann Coulter.

Recommends it for: Team Iron Man (and people who are Marvel fans)
Despite my doubts that I would even like this, I jumped into this (which isn't even the first volume, apparently) and devoured it. Nothing may ever match my unbridled enthusiasm and love for the current incarnation of Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan, FTW), but I really do like Carol Danvers. I don't know that I would have liked her so much if it weren't for her successor, but I really did enjoy the hell out of this. Also, Team Iron Man.

This volume is a really mixed bag. The first story about Carol's role in the Civil War is pretty excellent. Then we get an incredibly shitty story about an alternate universe carol and her relationship to Rogue. This is slightly redeemed by a neat story at the end of the book about a child with a frightening power. All in all, this book barely ekes out a three thanks to it's fucking awful mid chapter.

The Civil War issues were good and compelling (and, to me at least, don't make the pro-registration forces look good). The alternate Warbird story was decent, but since I haven't read any older Ms. Marvel stories I know nothing about the history between her and Rogue (or much about Rogue at all, for that matter). It worked, and Ms. Marvel's characterization was good, though.
