With the highly anticipated arrival of The Marvels in theaters, starring Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, and Teyonah Parris, the star-studded cast brings all the marvel there is to the big screen. The movie, as fans know, features not one but two Captain Marvels alongside Ms. Marvel, thus sparking debates among fans about who among them is the most supreme being.


While Larson’s Captain Marvel has showcased her prowess in previous ventures, Monica Rambeau has recently demonstrated impressive power, making her a formidable competitor in any potential battle for the Captain Marvel title.

Here are three reasons why Monica Rambeau is someone to look out for,

1. Strength

Speaking of strength, Teyonah Parris’ Rambeau appears to surpass Brie Larson‘s Danvers. While Danvers is a pretty hefty character herself, Rambeau’s exceptional skills were highlighted in the comic book, Captain Marvel #12. In that issue, she triumphed over Thor who was without his hammer, showcasing her remarkable combat abilities. Although that is only one instance from the comics among many, the character has yet to unleash its full potential in the MCU.

2. Speed

Both the Captain Marvels possess the ability to travel faster than light, however, Monica’s unique capability sets her apart. She can transform her body into ultraviolet light, granting her unparalleled speed and flexibility. While Carol relies on her energy blasts to propel herself through space, Monica’s ability to shift into ultraviolet light allows her to move swiftly and effortlessly, making her even faster and more versatile in various situations.

3. Damage Handling

When it comes to handling significant blows, both Marvels can be incredibly sturdy and challenging to defeat. However, Monica exhibits a higher threshold for handling damage compared to Carol. Her ability to absorb and withstand a wide range of attacks, coupled with her versatility in flowing through different energy forms, gives her a significant advantage.

In the face of trouble, Monica’s resilience and adaptability make her more likely to emerge victorious in challenging situations, cementing her position as a powerhouse within the Marvel Universe.


In the MCU however, Monica’s evolution remains a pivotal storyline that is yet to reach its full potential, and this time around is explored further by The Marvels.

Previously, after being blasted through the Hex by Wanda, her DNA transformed, granting her spectral vision abilities to perceive energy across the electromagnetic spectrum. Similar to Captain Marvel, Monica also now possesses energy absorption skills.

Despite Carol’s current superiority, Monica’s potential is vast, especially considering her abilities were barely scratched in WandaVision. As Monica continues to unlock her powers in the cinematic universe, Captain Marvel may find herself facing a new contender for the title of the franchise’s strongest hero.


The Marvels comes out on the 10th of November in theaters.
