Captain Marvel made her Marvel debut in 1968 and since then, she has often been labeled as the biggest female hero.
Trained as a pilot and spy, before gaining superpowers, she has been described by Marvel President Kevin Feige as one of the strongest characters.
Here we take a look at the five best powers of Captain Marvel.
Controlling gravity is part of the Binary form's power
Captain Marvel in her Binary form has enhanced powers and can thus control gravity to an extent.
Since the Binary form increases her existing power set, it tends to add a few more abilities to this impressive superhero's arsenal.
Gravity control stems from her original ability to manipulate energy around things through telekinesis and is an overall formidable skill in battles against enemies.
Faster healing and regeneration is part of energy manipulation
Captain Marvel's healing powers are immense due to her ability to metabolize and redistribute energy to injured spots.
It is believed her healing is almost at par with Wolverine's and in the comics we have seen she can recover from nuclear blasts in a couple of hours.
Notably, in comics, she has also reconstituted herself after being assassinated by Norman Osborne, showing her survivability.
Cosmic awareness lets her know when danger is near
Captain Marvel's cosmic awareness is described as her seventh sense although we do not know what her sixth sense is.
However, the way it works is like Peter Parker's Spidey sense.
Both her cosmic awareness and sense of precognition allow her to anticipate crisis and enemy moves even before they take place, giving her an extreme advantage in critical situations and tough battles.
Energy blasts with nuclear power
Captain Marvel as Binary can generate energy blasts of varied sources, including electricity, heat, and nuclear. It is an extension of her power manipulation abilities.
These energy blasts can be as powerful as nuclear bombs. However, they are only possible in Binary form for which Marvel herself needs to absorb immense amounts of energy.
This makes her one of the most powerful superheroes.
Energy absorption is the strongest power of Captain Marvel
The power to absorb energy, heat, electrical, solar and nuclear, is the source of all of Captain Marvel's powers.
Not only does this give her abilities like power blasts, but also enhances physical attributes like strength, stamina, and speed.
She can also use it to telekinetically move objects by manipulating the energy fields around them.
Energy absorption makes Captain Marvel who she really is.
