The latest MCU hero is Christological in the way she defends the foreigners among us.
Interesting article. Me and my wife just saw the movie and loved it. Thank you for taking the time to write this and bring up some good insight on the movie.
I liked your description of Captain Marvel as a defender of refugees. I do take issue, however, with your point that the movie doesn't make feminist statements. And after finishing your article, I believe you do too. I read this early in the article, but decided to continue reading, and I appreciated your discussion of Carol's feelings being strengths rather than weaknesses. Perhaps you were talking about more obvious statements of feminine power over men, which don't really appear in this movie. But I believe that the movie, as it is, is a powerful feminist statement. Thanks again for your insightful words. :)
