CAPTAIN MARVEL (1968) (#1-62) (MARVEL) #29 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Captain Marvel #29
Jim Starlin at his stellar best! Captain Marvel is one of Marvel's most fluid characters - changing his look and abilities often to suit the fans (only Giant Man/Yellowjacket/Ant-Man had more changes). But with this tale, "Metamorphosis," Starlin gifts the Kree Captain with one of the most innovative super-powers of all, Cosmic Awareness. It's a concept so indelibly 1970s in sentiment that it makes this comic and this character a veritable time capsule of the decade of mind expansion and higher consciousness.

In order to combat Thanos, wielder of the Cosmic Cube, Chronos of Titan set into place Eon, He Who Waits, an incredible cosmic entity created for one purpose: to pass along power and wisdom to the chosen protector of the universe. As the potential recipient of that mantle, Mar-Vell must first prove he's much more than a warrior. He must also learn the origins of the titans of Olympus and relive the death of his beloved Una as part of his journey to spiritual enlightenment. Meanwhile, Rick Jones lies trapped under the rubble of a collapsed building while the malevolent Controller threatens to control his girlfriend's mind. True believers, the 70s Marvel comics didn't get much better than this!
