Fans have been waiting for a year for the Captain Marvel movie to come out in March of next year. Marvel has long been trying to showcase the female gender in a leading light like the DCEU have done with Wonder Woman. The MCU needs Carol Danvers and to change all of that. Now that the Guardians of the Galaxy movies have released, Marvel is going to need another hero that can take them away from earth and up into space.
Depending on how well the audience takes to Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, the character is established to shake things up in the Marvel cinematic universe, and set the bar for the next generation of the MCU. With that in mind let’s look at every super power Captain Marvel has in order to show you that she will be a force to be reckoned with on the big screen.
16. IMMUNITY TO POISON AND DISEASE
When Carol Danvers underwent her transformation, the former Captain Marvel’s genomic pattern was transferred into her body, along with his Kree immune system. So Captain Marvel is almost impervious to all poisons and most forms of disease, both terrestrial and galactic and all forms of cancer.
15. SUPER STAMINA AND AGILITY
Carol Danver’s muscles regenerate at a rapid rate due to her accelerated healing factor which give her lightning quick reflexes and the power to absorb energy.
Carol Danvers can fly herself in any way, anywhere, in the air that she wants to.
13. HIGH INVULNERABILITY
With her toughened skin, and bones strengthened by her Kree DNA, Captain Marvel can walk through most weapon fire without a scratch. Bullets don’t even penetrate her skin. This makes Captain Marvel one of the most invulnerable heroes, capable of thriving in any environment.
12. SPACE TRAVEL
Captain Marvel can travel through space after fighting with a “white hole” space phenomenon.
11. HEAT POWERS
Captain Marvel’s powers mirror those of a star and have the ability to manipulate energy and turn that energy into heat.
10. CONTROL OVER ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY
Captain Marvel is capable of bending magnetic fields and using positive and negative polarities to hurl metal objects at her enemies. This power also gives her power over electronics.
9. HEALING FACTOR
Carol Danvers’ human-Kree physiology allows her to rapidly accelerate cell regeneration, so that even when she eventually does take damage, she can heal far more quickly than others.
8. SUPER STRENGTH
Captain Marvel has the full strength of a star and Nick Fury has classified her at Power Level Eight.
7. SUPER SPEED
Captain Marvel has lightning quick reflexes and agility, and has a capacity for bursts of speed when she needs it.
6. ABSORB KINETIC ENERGY
Like Black Panther’s Vibranium suit, Captain Marvel has the ability to accept power, absorb it into her body, and transform it into whatever kind of energy she chooses.
5. GRAVITY MANIPULATION
Captain Marvel is capable of controlling her entire surrounding gravity field, manipulating the movement of everything around her.
Captain Marvel has the ability to teleport herself anywhere around the universe.
3. PHOTON BLASTS
Captain Marvel can fire cosmic beams of energy from her fingers. The intensity of these beams drains Captain Marvel’s power and energy levels.
2. ALTER REALITY
Another superpower of Captain Marvel is her ability to use her Cosmic Awareness which enables her to bend reality around her will.
1. COSMIC AWARENESS
As mentioned above, Captain Marvel has a heightened sense of cosmic awareness. The essential nature of cosmic awareness puts the user in tune with the harmony of the universe.
Her capacity for precognition has resulted in her ability to read minds and to figure out the opponent’s strategy with the ability to run simulations on potential action plans and know which is the most likely to be successful.
