The Marvels Teases the Comeback of a Deceased Character

In ‘The Marvels,’ it’s hard to overlook anything because this compact yet laser-focused film effortlessly fulfills its pledge of providing fans with a delightful superhero experience. The post-credit scene, in particular, is a treasure trove of information, unveiling one of the most intriguing glimpses into the MCU’s future. We’re diving into the survival story of a certain someone who weathered what could be considered Marvel Studios’ most relentless string of deaths, and that’s the juicy topic on our plate.

  • Monica Rambeau woke up in a different universe, finding her mother, Maria Rambeau, lying on a bed beside her.
  • In this alternate universe, Maria Rambeau took on the role of Captain Marvel, suggesting she might be the same person supposedly slain by Scarlet Witch in Earth-838.

Maria Rambeau was thought dead on Earth-838

In ‘The Marvels,’ the storyline delved deep into the dynamic between Monica Rambeau and Carol Danvers. Monica, feeling isolated after her aunt’s absence following her mother Maria’s passing from cancer during her post-Snap absence, found a resolution with Carol. Together with Kamala Khan, they confronted and defeated Dar-Benn, who met a fiery end trying to harness the Quantum Bands, ripping a hole in the fabric of time and space.

To mend the rupture, Monica absorbed the powers of Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel, sealing the breach from the other side, knowing it meant being stuck in a different universe. As Carol, Kamala, and S.A.B.E.R. mourned her sacrifice, Monica awoke in another universe during the post-credit scene, greeted by the familiar face of her mother, Maria Rambeau. However, in this parallel universe, Maria, serving as its Captain Marvel, was perplexed by Monica’s emotional reaction, revealing that Monica was never her daughter in this reality, mirroring Carol’s absence of family in her own universe.

Could this be the same Maria we saw during the events of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’?

We’re familiar with Maria Rambeau donning the Captain Marvel mantle. In ‘The Marvels,’ Carol hinted at the possibility when she recounted a past race with her universe’s Maria, suggesting she could have become Captain Marvel if she had won. This scenario unfolded in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ where Maria, as Captain Marvel, belonged to Earth-838’s Illuminati, mirroring the powers of Carol in the main MCU universe, Earth-616.

During Scarlet Witch’s possession fueled by the Darkhold, the massacre at the Illuminati’s base saw every member’s demise except Maria. While others faced definitive deaths, Maria’s fate was left uncertain. Wanda drained her energy, weakening Captain Marvel, and seemingly buried her under a colossal statue. Yet, given Captain Marvel’s resilience against formidable attacks, the doubt lingered.

The post-credit scene in ‘The Marvels’ revealed Maria on a bed, undergoing treatment and bearing scars, hinting that she might be the same Maria believed dead in ‘Multiverse of Madness.’ The enduring resilience of Captain Marvel challenges the notion that a mere statue could take her down, adding a layer of intrigue to her survival.

What kind of impact does Maria have on the future of the MCU?

Currently, the possibilities surrounding Maria Rambeau’s survival are wide open. There’s a strong likelihood that this Maria is the same one from Earth-838, managing to endure Wanda’s lethal assault.

If that’s the case, the future dynamics between characters from Earth-838 and Earth-616 could be compelling. Post-‘Multiverse of Madness’ events might strain relations, potentially leading to tension and unfriendliness between the two universes.

Considering the development of a ‘Secret Wars’ movie, set to be a major Avengers installment, there’s anticipation that it will pave the way for the convergence of multiple universes, introducing Mutants and the Fantastic Four to the MCU. If Maria, presumed dead in Earth-838, resurfaces, her feelings towards the inhabitants of 616 could be less than amicable, given the losses she endured.

As the universes collide, the relationships involving Maria, Monica, and Carol are sure to add intriguing layers to the narrative.
