Everybody I Love Dies

How much do we love Captain Marvel? SO MUCH, OF COURSE.
BUT OMGOSH. On my 20th re-read of the day, I just realized something SO FREAKING COOL (and yes, I’m crazy slow, shut up).
So on the splash page above we’ve got the little blurb about how they’re recognizing these long-lost awesome women who, oh, look kinda familiar to the readers, right? No biggie.
EXCEPT.
IT LOOKS LIKE CAROL MIGHT BE CHANGING THINGS. :D

We get the rather innocuous piece of information that cute little “Bee” solider girl has been learning how to sketch cartoons from the other soldier who died in the previous issue. Okay, whatever. Oh, and in case you haven’t been following, blonde pig-tails? Her name is Daisy. Keep this in mind.

We get her full name here, last name “Kawasaki”. LET’S REMEMBER THAT, SHALL WE???

We see she’s been sketching Carol. Hey, I would, too: chick is badass and one day I will have her costume (and by “one day”, I mean this Halloween. Parts of it are in the mail as we speak). Also, she can fly. Yay sketching that.
BUT THEN. AND THIS IS THE THING I DIDN’T REALIZE UNTIL MY ROOMMATE WAS LIKE “Oh, that cute page is a foreshadowy thing”. :

Oh, cute, an old-timey Captain Marvel comic! Tee-hee. How neat.
(Aside: LOOK, Carol is continuing her tradition of battling her most hated nemesis: CARS. Seriously Carol, babe, give the poor cars a break! {And yeah, I know it’s a Superman thing, shush. I just think it’s so funny how much Carol HATES CARS.})
WAIT. Look. LOOK RIGHT THERE. AT THE ILLUSTRATOR.

OH SHIT IT’S BEE. BEE TOTALLY ILLUSTRATED THIS.

"JUST LAST YEAR" "BY HER GRANDCHILDREN" "DAISY DIDDLE".
NOT ONLY is it totally illustrated by Bee… BUT IT’S WRITTEN BY DAISY. GUYS. GUYS.
GUYS. Carol is TOTALLY changing the past, AND THIS COMIC IS ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THAT!!!
I’m sorry, that is just ABSURDLY COOL.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, we get a little bit of OH MY FREAKING GOSH foreshadowing:

UGK YOU GUYS I know this could be a total misdirect but GOSH I’M SO FREAKING PSYCHED FOR THE NEXT ISSUE. GUYS. GUYS. UGH.
Bonus:
I grabbed my comics before I went into the office today and was reading AVX: Versus while sitting on my buddy’s desk. We’re grad students, BTW. I came across the following, BUSTED A GUT LAUGHING, and shoved it in his face. The room filled with much laughter for a long, long time (key point: we are grad students):

Oh gosh hello my life. What are you doing in my comic books?????
