A powerful heroine
Captain Marvel is the newcomer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and one of the most powerful superheroines in the entire Marvel Universe. At the beginning of the film, Vers lives among the Kree as one of their own with no memories older than six years. But when a mission sends her to Earth to pursue a Skrull, Vers takes the opportunity to investigate strange images that appear in her dreams and seem to indicate that she had a life on Earth before. Her name was Carole Danvers and she was a test pilot for the U.S. Army. One day, she tested a new secret machine but her plane was attacked and she crashed. The plane contained a weapon developed by her superior who was in fact a Kree in disguise. She had realized that the persecution of the Skrulls was unfair and this weapon would have allowed them to escape the Kree forever. When the reactor exploded, Carol received its full power and it gave her strength and powers beyond imagination. But it gave her amnesia and the evil Kree used it to their advantage.
