A couple days ago Marvel fans started to reacting to images of Brie Larson in her Captain Marvel costume. And the details look great, except for one tiny problem, the color. As someone who has LOVED Captain Marvel since before she donned her current costume, I have a few thoughts.

Let me start by saying I’ve always been a Carol Danvers fan. It didn’t matter when she was a human woman, when she was half-kree, when she was Binary, or anything in between.
