Following the news of Kelly Sue DeConnick's departure from the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel series, Marvel has announced a new creative team, which will consist of the showrunners behind the Agent Carter TV series.
Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas will be the writers on the new Captain Marvel #1 that launches following Secret Wars, withÂ Kris Anka on as artist.
Fast Company revealed details and the new look of Carol Danvers which includes an altered costume and a short new hair cut.
â€˘Â The new series begins eight months after the end ofÂ Secret Wars.
â€˘ TheÂ new mission has Captain Marvel as Earth's first line of defense against extraterrestrial threats.
â€˘Â S.W.O.R.D. will not be around post-Secret Wars.
â€˘Â Carol comes upon a ghost ship, with no crew or dead crew, with the first six issues dealing with the fact thatÂ it's not a coincidence that the ship is headed towards Earth and Captain Marvel.
â€˘Â Carol is really meant to be a soldier and a commander, and also a diplomat; the series is rooted in Earth but also an extension into the galaxy.
Regarding the new costume and hair cut:
â€˘ Â "We've slightly modified her costume to kind of reflect her new status quo," says Butters. "There's been a lot of controversy about Carol Danvers' haircut. We really wanted to make sure it was consistent and streamlined. Last year I think a lot of people couldn't get her hairstyleâ€”sometimes it was short, sometimes it was longâ€”so we went in and designed exactly what she would look like. Kris really wanted to go shorter, because he felt it aligned with what her new look is all about."
â€˘ "She's military," added Fazekas. "She's not going to have this huge mane of hair. It needs to be practical."
