It is Carol Danvers, she's the new Captain Marvel, or will be taking his name. As to the issue I read in about two minutes as well. I didn't like the format either, but will live with it. I thought it was off to a good start. Didn't feel like a Smallville episode, felt more like a comic book, but still had show elements. Otis!!!! Miller was the perfect writer for this book, and I liked the exchange with the Russian Cosmonauts. More Donner Verse homaging it would seem.
