Carol Danvers started as a supporting character. Then she became Ms. Marvel to cash in on the burgeoning Women’s Lib movement of the 1970s. Finally she was transformed into Captain Marvel, the first female Marvel superhero to get her own movie.
Heroic Girls is proud to present Lady Comic Book History, a podcast devoted to exploring the history of female comic book characters both past and present. Lady Comic Book History is hosted by comics historian Alexandrea Sams.
