Ms. Marvel is the name of a fictional character appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. the character starred in her own series in the late 1970s before becoming associated with the Avengers and X-Men. As of 2009 Ms. Marvel appeared in two monthly titles - a second solo series penned by Brian Reed and Patrick Olliffe, and Mighty Avengers, by Brian Michael Bendis and Frank Cho. Ms. Marvel also makes frequent appearances in other titles. The character has also been known as Binary and Warbird
Ms. Marvel initially possessed superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, physical durability and a limited precognitive "seventh sense". As Binary, she could tap the energy of a "white hole", allowing manipulation of stellar energies, and therefore control over heat, the electromagnetic spectrum and gravity. Light speed travel and the ability to exist in the vacuum of space were also possible. Although the link to the white hole is eventually severed, Ms. Marvel retains her Binary powers on a smaller scale, enabling her to both absorb energy and project it in photonic form. The character, however, lacks a constant source of energy to maintain the abilities at their previous cosmic level.
Carol Danvers is also an exceptional espionage agent, hand-to-hand combatant, markswoman and a talented writer.
