Wendell is back, so he should get the name Quasar back, so it would be nice to see her graduate then to the name Csptain Marvel!
Lord knows she’s earned it.
However… wasn’t Genis-Vell going by the name of “Captain Marvel” in Avengers Forever, too…?
I’d make Phyla go back to Titan or where ever she’s from and bring back Genis as Captain Marvel. Phyla hasn’t done a single thing to deserve the title and Genis was uncermoniously killed off for no apparent reason (but with a reasonable ‘out’ to bring him back, too) back in New Thunderbolts. Just get PAD to write Captain Marvel with Genis again.
How does a character “deserve” a title that’s been handed off a million times to a million nobodies?
I think I’d give the name back to Monica Rambeau or give it to Carol Danvers, maybe.
I’m not sure how I feel about Phylla. She was created basically to make a pun on Genis-Vell’s name (Genus vs Phylum) and made a lesbian just so Moondragon could have a lesbian love interest (since she ALWAYS had back luck at love with men, so OF COURSE she had to be a lesbian, as opposed to just a bitch.) Now, that doesn’t mean the idea of a female Captain Marvel is a bad one (Rambeau never felt like a “Marvel” to me, let’s admit it she was given the name just to prevent it from falling out of Marvel Comic’s hands. She was otherwise a cool character though.) And as I mentioned in another column, any character can work if you find the right angle.
In any case, she IS Captain Marvel for now (until her brother inevitably returns anyway.) Start working on a good name for her folks…
FAKE CAPTAIN MARVEL!!!
captain Marvel is already taken. so she would have to have a new name like maybe star stone or something. though Marvel proably has no plans to change to the old Quasar
She was created basically to make a pun on Genis-Vell’s name
Well, PAD did create her. What do you expect?
What about a promotion? Major Marvel! General Marvel!
Or a demotion: Lance Corporal Marvel! Staff Sergeant Marvel! Really, no military would work if it was all captain and no one of higher or lower rank.
Or what if they just merge, and Wendell’s Quasar, but when he clangs his wristbands together, boom! he’s got boobs and is a Kree.
She has already been Captain Marvel, That was her codename at the begininning of Annihilation, she just hadn’t earned it so nobody actually called her it. Same deal with her Quasar title.
Plus it looks like she’ll be getting a whole new Identity in GotG #12 anyway so it’s all mute. I would like to see what Noh-Varr does with the title, despite the fact that he should never have gotten it in the first place. Bendis is the last person who should be writing that character.

As always nobody thinks she could just be bi. Think of the soap operatic possibilties..erm..execpt she’s dead now so that’s just gross. If she resurrects I mean. Phyla could do well to find a new codename that’s unique to her.
