Carol Danvers was just another Air Force security officer, when she found herself working alongside Mar-Vell in his human guise as Dr. Walter Lawson.

She finds him mysterious, but is strangely attracted to him. When she sees Captain Marvel, she is also suitably impressed.

Marvel Super-Heroes #13 was hot property for a while, thanks to the Captain Marvel movie, but it has fallen hard from the heights.

The record sale of $31,000 now is a true fantasy. It will probably never be beaten.
