Captain Marvel is poised for new adventures, thanks to the team-up of Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco in The Life of Captain Marvel, which launches this July. However, ahead of the five-issue miniseries’ release, readers can get their first look at Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada’s beautiful variant cover for Issue #3.
The artwork features Carol Danvers hovering against a dark backdrop. Interestingly enough, though, her hands appear to be fading away, much like what happened to those who fell victim to Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War.

In the five-issue arc, Carol’s strength will be tested — not that of her body, but of her emotional fortitude — as a traumatic event compels her to take a closer look at her relationship with her biological family.
“The understanding of Carol as a hero is fundamentally tied to her strength, but being strong is not entirely the same as having Kree powers,” writer Margaret Stohl told CBR in a recent interview. “So it’s been a really interesting journey looking into the nature of Carol’s strength; what makes her strong as a person and as a hero? Where is that all coming from?”
The solicitation details for the variant cover issue are as follows:
