But what happens when I’m finally set free?” Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) asks, before blasting the daylights out of her enemies to the tune of No Doubt’s “Just A Girl.” She’s finally unleashing her full powers after spending most of the movie struggling to come to terms with who she is—and what she’s capable of.”

Higher! Further! Faster! More!
“comic books have played an important part in cultures all over the world. From the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinée (such as Hergé’s Tintin stories) to British comics anthologies (think 2000 AD) to Japanese manga (One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball), comics are an important art form often used to comment on and inform national politics—as well as being shaped by them. American comic books are often most associated with the figure of the superhero. It is no accident that the first comic featuring Captain America, released in 1941, featured the titular hero punching Hitler in the face on the cover. Captain America was intended and acted as a symbol of national hope relating to the ideologies of that period.”
