The new series, rom the creative duo of Kelly Thompson and Carmen Carnero comes a brand new story in the life of Carol Danvers. The story starts where we find her having spent the last few months in space, protecting Earth from alien threats. Now it’s time to return to the planet, specifically New York City. It’s a fresh start, but she won’t be able to kick her feet up for long. Mahkizmo, has taken over Roosevelt Island, turning it into a wasteland and cutting it off from the rest of the world. Danvers will soon have to organize the likes of Spider-Woman, Echo, Hazmat and some guy named, Som, to help free the island’s civilians.
