There is a whole lot of buzz surrounding Captain Marvel these days because not only is she rising in prominence on the printed pages but she will have her own film in the coming years and be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. This is pretty cool on its own but now in celebration of her brand-new series, Marvel Comics is partnering up with some incredible music acts to showcase each issue. The second part features Glass Candy who is not a band that we know all that well since they are more of an Pop Electronica and we don’t listen to a lot of that sort of stuff here at the Metal Command HQ. Check out how they continue the revelations behind the “Mighty Captain Marvel” down below.

Marvel Comics is proud to present an unprecedented approach in introducing the world to Marvel Comics and the next great breakout Marvel Super Hero – Captain Marvel! Masterfully mixing animated comics with in-depth narration and commentary, this fresh new video series is designed to present a whole new audience to the world of Carol Danvers, a.k.a., Captain Marvel, timed with the debut of her brand new comic book series THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL.
THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL, written by New York Times best-selling author, Margaret Stohl (Black Widow: Forever Red, Black Widow: Red Vengeance), accompanied with outstanding art by Ramon Rosanas (The Astonishing Ant-Man), garnered international buzz and attention upon the announcement this past year. Marvel continues the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated high-flying former Air Force pilot turned Super Hero, Captain Marvel, through a brand-new Marvel music spotlight video series accompanied with the track “Candy Castle” from Glass Candy
Ida No from Glass Candy told Marvel, “[We] align ourselves wholeheartedly with the Marvel Hero maxim: Life is not a pleasure, it’s a mission to annihilate evil and salvage good from the wreck that the wicked minds have created. We are here to make this a better place.”
No continued, “I like to channel super heroes when writing lyrics because I believe they power blast away any lower frequency who might be hanging around trying to get a word in.”
Each month, a new “Captain Marvel: Alien Nation” video will be released with the latest issue of Marvel Comics’ THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL. The “Captain Marvel: Alien Nation” videos will educate new and old fans about Stohl’s THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL series through commentary, motion graphics, as well as an energetic score from some of the world’s biggest female-led musical acts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So a couple of things and the first one is that I realize this isn’t really a Metal music offering but do please remember that this particular set of posts is more about the comic book and hey I wasn’t in change or the artist pitch. That said this is still an interesting idea and one that should definitely help raise more Captain Marvel awareness. Though it’s still several movies away I am pretty stoked for this one since we need more strong women in the MCU to raise the game of Black Widow and Scarlet Witch. What do you think of part two? Let me know down in the comments sections below. See you with the next chapter which I assume will come next month
