Taking to Twitter, the fans shared the news about the attempt to allegedly depowerize a black woman as Monica Rambeau’s powers may overshadow Captain Marvel’s. Her powers include enhanced physiology, spectral vision, energy absorption, and, intangibility to name a few along with immortality and many other godly powers that compete with the powers of Captain Marvel herself!

The decision indeed rests with the people over at Marvel as to what the powers of Monica Rambeau should be. The Marvels will combine Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel along with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau with her newly acquired abilities.

The Marvels is set for a release date on 28th July 2023 to be released in theaters worldwide.
