And around Carol Danvers, the main character of the comic book Captain Marvel (Captain Marvel) – who, while DeKonnick was working on her, contributed to the appearance of a huge number of works about superheroes where women are not “humiliated”, – the author speaks of them, – There was a whole fan base, “Carol Corps”.
