    [ Captain Marvel Questions ]

    Who's Captain Marvel?
    The current Captain Marvel is named Genis-Vell and is the son of the original Captin Marvel in the Marvel Universe, Mar-Vell. He is a Kree-human hybrid who was artificially conceived and aged. For more info on Captain Marvel read his biography.

    But what about all these other people I keep hearing about?
    The original Captain Marvel was a Kree warrior and is Genis' deceased father. The second Captain Marvel was a member of the Avengers and currently goes by the name Photon. The DC Captain Marvel gets his powers when he's struck by lightning after saying "Shazam!"

    So how did the original Captain Marvel die?
    Mar-Vell was battling the villain Nitro and used his own powers to contain a nerve gas that Nitro had stolen in its container. However, this gas was carcinogenic and Mar-Vell later died from an incurable cancer on Saturn's moon Titan.

    What's the Negative Zone?
    The Negative Zone is a parallel universe composed of antimatter. Rick Jones and the original Captain Marvel switched places between this universe and the Negative Zone. However, thanks to Kelly's reality altering powers, Genis and Rick now switch between the regular universe and the Microverse, instead of the Negative Zone.

    What's the Microverse?
    The Microverse is a sub-atomic realm. Thanks to Kelly's reality altering powers, Genis and Rick switch between the regular universe and this place, instead of the Negative Zone.

    What's the Destiny War?
    The Destiny War was a battle involving Rick, Immortus, Kang, several Avengers and the Time Keepers. Essentially the Time Keepers want to keep humanity contained to Earth because in some timelines humans were corrupt. Thanks to good'ol Rick however their plans were quashed. For more info see the Avengers Forever page.

    How do the Nega-Bands work?
    The Nega-Bands convert psionic energy stored within Captain Marvel's cells into increased strength, grant him increased resilience, the power of flight, the ability to fire beams of energy from the bands, and the ability to survive unprotected in space. They also allow Captain Marvel and Rick Jones to switch places between the Microverse and the regular universe.

    What's Captain Marvel's link to the Avengers?
    Well, his future self appeared in the Avengers Forever maxi-series where we learn that he will eventually become a member. Also, the original Captain Marvel was an honorary member of the team.

    How many Captain Marvel series have there been?
    There have been three Captain Marvel series published by Marvel. The first starred the original Captain Marvel and ran from 1968 to 1979. The second starred the current Captain Marvel and lasted for six issues in 1995 - 96. And then there's the current run which has been published since November 1999.

    What's this "cosmic awareness" stuff?
    Basically it's an ability that allows Genis to see probable and actual outcomes in the future.

    Who are Rick and Marlo?
    Rick Jones is currently molecularly bonded to Captain Marvel and the two trade spaces (now you see where I got the name from) between the Microverse and the regular universe by banging together the Nega-Bands. Marlo Chandler-Jones is Rick's wannabe-actress wife who runs a comic book store. For more info on Rick read his biography and the Avengers Forever page. For Marlo see her biography.

    Why is the series being relaunched?
    Well, it all started with Marvel deciding to increse the price of CM (along with Black Panther and Spider-Girl which also sold poorly) to $2.75 to keep them from being cancelled. Peter David thought that this price increase would further decrease sales on the title and wrote a letter saying he'd take a pay decrease to keep the title at $2.50. Anyways, a whole big fracas ensued that's too much to get into and voila we have CM being relaunched. For more info try searching Newsarama since they carried the story in its entirety.

    [ Site Questions ]

    What do you use to create your site?
    I use Editpad - basically Notepad with a few more features added to it - to do the HTML; can't stand those WYSIWYG editors. I use Paint Shop Pro 7 to scan and edit the pictures, and I use Webimage to convert the graphics.

    Why isn't file (insert filename here) showing up properly?
    Well sometimes I forget to upload some files (usually cover images) when I update the site. I almost always notice right away but if there's any out there that I haven't just mail me.

    Can you link to my page please?
    Sure can, all I ask for is one in return.

    Where do I submit fanart / fanfics?
    Just mail me with the appropriate info; name, email, website address and the pictures for fanart; and name, email, website address, the story in *.txt format and anything that should be noted (profanity, sexual connotations, etc) for fanfic.

    Can I use pictures / info contained in your page?
    I'm sorry but the answer is no. I've put a lotta work into this website and I don't want other people to just take pictures, bios, etc and the credit that goes along with them.
