    1. Mixed bagSpotty introduction to the character. Clearly all artists in board seemed perplexed by her. Production values increase in the last issue but it's takes a while to warm up. Dracula makes a cameo. That fact alone shows some uncertainty by the creative team.

    2. The writing isn't the best, but I appreciate the foreword by one of the authors. Keeping in mind that this was the 70s, the collection is nice for Carol Corps fans like myself to experience the history of the character. The quality of the book is great, nice paper and good color.

    3. Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers) debuted in 1977 in her own series, a Marvel's answer to the women's lib movement that was in full swing at the time. Carol originally appeared in Captain Marvel as a Security Chief for the Air Force and appeared pretty frequently until she was caught in the violent explosion of a Kree device during one of his battles, which subsequently lead to her gaining the powers she has in her own series. Why they didn't include the issue where this happens in this collection is b [...]

    4. I find it fascinating that this collected volume starts out with sort of an apology by Mooney, explaining that the character was intended to reflect the feminist movement, but was still created by men and with the male gaze in mind. The character of Carol Danvers was created as an Air Force security guard, but later had her DNA fused with that of Captain Marvel (the Kree one) in an explosion, giving her a superhero identity distinct from her regular self. There's quite a bit of Spider-Man in the [...]

    5. Ms. MarvelThe origins and first adventures of Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers interesting to look back at the present Captain Marvel's initial forays as a superhero

    6. The original adventures of Carol Danvers are much different than she wound up even while still called Ms. Marvel. For one thing, some of her powers (like flight) were due to Kree circuitry in her scarf. You could also see the character struggle to get through the sexism of her creators, from the belly window in her costume to -- well, it written by Claremont after all.Still, there's some good rip-roaring fisticuffs with villains like MODOK and The Elementals. Not those Elementals.

    7. I want to give this a higher rating because I like the characters & I understand *why* they created her, but the writing is so awful, even lazy, I can't justify a higher rating.
