Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel has hit the theaters. I don’t think I’ll be seeing it. I guess the basic premise is the main character is abducted by space aliens who give her super powers and an outfit with a decidedly phallic symbol on her thigh.

Looking at the picture, I guess there was a Faustian bargain involved. Faust, you recall, had to give the devil his soul. Apparently aliens had no use for a soul. Instead they took a sizable piece of the Captain’s ass and left her with the butt of a ten year old boy. You can’t get something for nothing.

Special effects only go so far.
