Former Captain Marvel Genis-Vell, son of Mar-Vell, returns this October as part of the “Last of the Marvels” story arc.
This October, Genis-Vell — son of the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell — returns as part of writer Kelly Thompson’s “Last of the Marvels” story arc.
“Last of the Marvels” is slated to begin this September in Captain Marvel #32. “The thrilling saga will celebrate the legacy of Captain Marvel and sees Carol teaming up with Kamala Khan when a dark presence from earlier in Thompson’s run mysterious reappears,” Marvel Comics said in an official release. “Months ago, Carol was trapped inside a twisted version of her own suit. Now the nightmare prison has returned… but it’s not Carol inside.”
Then, on artist Gerald Parel’s variant cover for Captain Marvel #33 — which is slated to hit comic shops on Wednesday, Oct. 6 — the aforementioned Genis-Vell (a former Captain Marvel in his own right) returns in what Marvel describes as “the first of many shocking reveals.” However, the House of Ideas also poses the question, “[W]hat role will the son of the original Captain Marvel play in the cosmic conflict? And who else is hiding behind the masks?”
Also known by the names Legacy and Photon, Genis-Vell/Captain Marvel was created by Ron Marz and Ron Lim. He was the third character to carry the mantle of Captain Marvel, following Mar-Vell and Monica Rambeau. Genis-Vell was succeeded by Phyla-Vell, Khn’nr, Noh-Varr and, finally, Carol Danvers, the current Captain Marvel.
