|REAL NAME||Carol Susan Jane Danvers|
|OCCUPATION||Adventurer, SHIELD Agent|
|PLACE OF BIRTH||Boston, Massachusetts, USA|
|CITIZENSHIP||United States of America, Adult, No criminal record|
Steve (brother, deceased)
Joseph Jr. (brother)
|AFFILIATION||Ultimate Initiative (Avengers)|
US Air Force
|PHYSICAL PROFILE||Standing at nearly six feet tall, Carol has a fit, in-shape figure. She has blue eyes and blonde hair and is as beautiful as she is intimidating.|
Carol is a very strong-willed
woman. Her father had wanted her to have been a boy, but since Carol was
not a boy, he treated her very differently than he did her two older
brothers. He always said that a woman's place was in the home, and he
forbade Carol from going to college. Instead, she joined the Air Force
(and while there earned her 4 year degree), and she worked her way up the
ladder earning the title Major. Perhaps she feels she has a lot to prove
to her father (and the rest of the world). She gives everything her all
and refuses to "half-ass" anything.
She is self-reliant and independent. If you cross her, Carol can be quite confrontational. Her strength of will is quite strong, suggesting that she would be resistant to mental domination (but by no means immune). Carol can often be seen as outspoken, as she is often direct and assertive.
"I'd prefer that you called me Ms. Marvel! My civilian name is reserved for my friends - a category which definitely excludes you!" ~ Ms. Marvel, Fantastic Four 376
FLIGHT - Carol is able
to fly at nearly the speed of sound and has even broken the sound barrier
from time to time, but she cannot reach escape velocity and cannot survive
in the vacuum of outer space without a proper space suit.
CHARISMATIC - Danvers
just seems to have that special magnetic charm or appeal about her.
There is something about Carol that people just can't seem to resist.
She seems to have a personal attractiveness or interesting-ness that
enables her to influence others in a positive manner.
COMBAT REFLEXES - Danvers can react to threats almost instantly, meaning that she is very difficult to surprise and is extremely effective in close-range hand-to-hand combat. She has years of military and special ops training under her belt.
CONVICTION - Danvers possesses a great belief in herself, what she does, and what she stands for. She is able to stand up to the forces of evil and temptation better than most.
DAMN HEALTHY! - Danvers is, as the name implies, damn healthy. She eats all the right foods and partakes in plenty of exercise to keep herself in tiptop shape.
HARD TO KILL - Simply put, Danvers is incredibly difficult to kill. Even when you try to blow her to bits, she has an annoying habit of surviving... somehow.
COMBAT STYLE (Martial
Arts) - Danvers has been extensively trained in armed and unarmed
combat, including numerous martial arts. This would include Modern Army
Combatives training in Boxing, Brazilian Jujitsu, Muay Thai, Judo and
ESPIONAGE - The art of spying. Danvers has been trained in espionage and infiltration. She notices small clues, can operate spy equipment, and tell when someone is on her trail.
LANGUAGES - Carol is fluent in English, Russian, and Arabic. She has a limited vocabulary in many other languages.
MILITARY (Air Force) & PILOTING - Understanding of the armed services. Danvers is able to lead troops and also understand a military commander's strategies. Carol is also an accomplished pilot, having extensive experience with USAF planes and other governmental aircraft. Her training as a pilot allows her to perform complex flight maneuvers.
WEAPON STYLE (Guns) - Danvers has had extensive training with modern personal firearms of all types: handguns, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, including laser, stun, and concussion varieties.
LIMITED USE – Ms.
Marvel cannot command her Seventh Sense. It works through her
subconsciousness, and it can only show her an opponent’s POSSIBLE next
move. It is not infallible.
MORTAL - Near-invulnerability does not equal immortal. Carol is human, despite her superhuman abilities, and can be killed just like anyone else. It just takes a hell of a lot more to take down Ms. Marvel than it would an Average Joe.
SECRET IDENTITY - The world at large does not know that Ms. Marvel is, was or even might be Carol Danvers. Of all the secrets she possesses, this is likely her most guarded one. Some people do know about her secret identity, such as Nick Fury and other members of the Avengers.
Carol Susan Jane Danvers was born into a stereotypical all-American type of family. Her father was a retired Air Force pilot, and her brother, Joseph Jr., had also served in the military (sadly, he lost his life during the Gulf War in a roadside bombing by Afghani insurgents). Her father had always wanted Carol to have been a boy, but since Carol was not a boy, he treated her very differently than he did her two older brothers. He had always said that a woman's place was in the home, and hence, he forbade Carol from going to college; Carol's mother was always soft spoken and completely dominated (but never abused) by her husband.
Instead of going straight
to college after graduating from high school, Carol joined the Air Force,
where she also simultaneously earned her 4 year degree through the
educational programs offered by the Air Force. She wants so badly for her
father to be proud of her and to accept the fact that although she wasn't
the baby boy he had been hoping for, that she is just as good and worthy
of his love and respect as her brothers. His true feelings for his
daughter remain to be seen.
