Bleeding Cool had an article that makes it clear there is some resentment over the events of CIVIL WAR II. And most of that resentment is towards Carol Danvers, not from her.

About two pages from CHAMPIONS #21 after the cut. Written by Jim Zub. Art by Sean Izaakse

Come context: The Master of the World wants to save the polar ice caps. Since he's going to rule the world someday, he wants it safe. The Champions aren't sure what to do. Then Captain Marvel and Alpha Flight show up.

Some of this reminds me a little of the original NEW WARRIORS run. The team tried to focus on topical issues in some ways.

After we find out the Master is stealing the magic of the area to run his machines, he blows them up and flees.


Has there been a "Kamala and Carol talk about CIVIL WAR II like civilized people" scene? There should be.

Tony and Carol aren't going to talk about CIVIL WAR II like civilized people. At least not for a while.

I suspect the scene where they mend fences in Ms. Marvel #28 is as close as you're likely to get.

I miss All-New, All Different Avengers. That had a unique roster and some great interplay between the older and younger heroes (in my opinion).

Yeah, Champions does seem to have dropped all nuance and gone with "adults are dumb" ... though the team was formed mostly because of Civil War 2 so the kids have a point.

This forced hero vs hero trope, non stop comic events and mandatory attempts to match the comics with the MCU... this is why I QUIT reading Marvel.

Didn't Carol flat-out kill the Master in Busiek's run on the Avengers?

He came back during Civil War 2 having infiltrated the Canadian government and was acting as one of the officials helping to oversee Carol's Alpha Flight Space Station and her precognitive justice program with Ulysses

In defense of New Warriors though, they avoided easy answers.

Champions, not so much

Isn't the lesson here that Carol was right and the Champions were blatantly wrong?
