Easter Eggs in Comics: Ms. Captain Marvel

Welcome to another installment of Easter Eggs in Comics! Click here for the archive!

Today's Easter Egg comes from UNCANNY X-MEN #153, by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, and features Carol Danvers.

Carol Danvers is a Marvel character. She's been known as Binary and Warbird,. But mostly, she's been known as Ms. Marvel.

Ms. Marvel was an offshoot of a 1960s Marvel hero named Captain Marvel (real name: Mar-Vell, and no relation to the Captain Marvel I always talk about. I'll talk about the similarity in nomenclature in the future).

Well, in this issue, Carol Danvers walks into the room the X-Men are in, and guess what she's wearing?

Yep, it's reversed, but that's a Fawcett/DC Captain Marvel shirt!


Thanks to Ben Dietz for suggesting this Easter Egg, and Jeff White and Back Issue Ben Smith for the scans! Although Ben didn't actually scan this; this came off the 40 YEARS OF X-MEN DVD:
