In a poignant tribute, Captain Marvel bids farewell to a fallen ally who tragically perished during a fierce encounter with the Brood.
Throughout her illustrious superhero journey spanning several decades, Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, has confronted numerous formidable adversaries within the Marvel Universe. Among these menacing foes, the Brood stands out as one of the most treacherous, reaffirming their threat by claiming the life of Carol’s companion, Binary. Though this loss is undeniably tragic, Captain Marvel finds solace in laying Binary to rest in a celestial realm that epitomizes perfection. This poignant act may even set the stage for the next captivating chapter of their intertwined saga.
In a climactic battle, Binary suffers a fatal blow at the hands of the formidable Empress Brood, leaving Carol’s comrades powerless to intervene. Witnessing Carol’s overwhelming rage unleashed upon the alien threat, it is Rogue who steps forward to reason with her, preventing her from crossing a point of no return. Rogue’s intervention not only saves an entire world from Carol’s unchecked fury but also provides an opportunity for the protagonist of Captain Marvel #49 (by Kelly Thompson, Sergio Dávila, Sean Parsons, Roberto Poggi, Ceci De La Cruz, and VC’s Clayton Cowles) to confront her grief. Supported by her allies, Carol finds solace in laying Binary to rest on the very planet of her birth, a final resting place that holds profound significance beyond its intrinsic perfection.
Captain Marvel Just Laid Binary to Rest in the Perfect Location
Introduced in Captain Marvel #34 (2021) by Kelly Thompson and Sergio Davila, the emergence of Binary showcased a unique manifestation of Carol’s powers, born out of her desperate need to elude Vox Supreme’s schemes. Although the initial creation was assimilated back into Carol, a subsequent event in the same issue led to the birth of what would become Binary through a similar process. While Binary played a crucial role in dismantling Vox Supreme’s operation, her very existence carried profound significance. Coincidentally, she came into being on the very planet where Mar-Vell met his fate, adding another layer of significance to her origin.
Following the resurrection and subsequent sacrifice of the original Captain Marvel, he valiantly battled the Phoenix Force to protect the universe. Carol, who had a deep connection with him, experienced immense sorrow witnessing his demise once again. However, as she observed the desolate planet where he met his end transform into a flourishing realm, a bittersweet solace settled within her. The rejuvenation of that world became a poignant symbol of his enduring legacy. Given the history and unresolved mysteries surrounding Binary, there is a possibility that Planet Marvel could serve as a backdrop for the continuation of her story.
Binary’s Story Could Still Continue
In the aftermath of Carol’s unexpected death, her allies rallied together to prevent her energy form from dissipating completely. Considering the circumstances, exploring the idea of infusing her physical body with similar cosmic energies to revive her potentially becomes plausible. While there is no definitive assurance of its success, the possibility should not be dismissed. She is especially considering the fact that she has been left in the one location where such a revival is most promising to occur.
With the abundant cosmic energy permeating the Planet Marvel and its thriving life, there exists a possibility of Binary’s rejuvenation through her final resting place. It remains uncertain whether she will be revived for new adventures or if her essence will merge with the world, akin to those impacted by Mar-Vell’s legacy. Nonetheless, Carol finds solace in knowing she has a place to connect with the fragments of herself that have been lost. It’s a privilege that surpasses the expectations of most cosmic heroes confronted by overwhelming tragedy.
