Captain Marvel movie Cap's an enormous story arc, a masterpiece. Just saw Marvel last night. A good movie as one should expect from a Marvel story. But I get the subliminal message the movie was making, unlike some who think it was a betrayal of virtuous and moral citizens to the rigid machinery of real military. That author misses the point. In Captain America we know Steve Rogers back story in more detail (scrawny kid with moral ideas bigger than himself). With Carrol Danvers it is by snapshots, tiny vignettists, and adoration of a friend and her daughter. But the same sense of fairness and strength are there. Remember that Rogers entered the US Army (at that time the Air Force was part of the army, the USAAF), and his uniform was boldly emblazoned with red, white, and blue, and Caps shield center has a white star in a blue circle, same as the markings on USAAF aircraft. Captain Marvel's entire suite is boldly emblazon in red, white, and blue, based on the colors of the USAAF logo (and my avatar image which I have used for years for another reason). She does not need a shield, because she IS the shield (and I guess a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. too). And if what I think will happen in "Avengers: End Game" will happen (please, no spoilers), then all the more for the colors. For all differences between the two Captains, there are as many parallels and continuity. After all, both Captain America and Captain Marvel were created out of American patriotism and thus uniquely patriotic, and yet are far bigger than America itself. Marvel Studios, IMHO, hit the mark with the message. Looking forward to "Avengers: End Game", and see if what I suspect the story arc will do. (side note: Wonder Woman originally was emblazoned with very bright red, white, blue colors, but was massively toned down for the movie. Funny given who was involved in making it).
