Ms. Marvel ended its first season paving the way for The Marvels, the sequel to Captain Marvel.
This ending came a little abruptly, which may have confused many fans. However, based on the comics, it is possible to already have an idea of the fate of Ms. Marvel.
Obviously, this article has some spoilers. So don’t read on if you haven’t watched it yet.
One of the surprises of the first season finale is that Ms. Marvel abruptly switches places with Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel suddenly appears in her place, and doesn’t seem to quite understand what happened. The public may not have understood anything either.

First, it takes a bit of context: in the 60s comics, the original Captain Marvel had cosmic wristbands that could make him travel to the Negative Zone.
It turns out that Rick Jones, a classic sidekick to the Hulk, also found matching bracelets. This made them interdimensionally linked, but there was a problem: those bracelets kept them from being in the same place at the same time.
When they wore the bracelets at the same time, they switched places. But, it wasn’t that simple.
While Captain Marvel took the place of Rick Jones, the latter was sent to the Negative Zone. Which was a very big problem, since Rick Jones was just an ordinary young man.
The Negative Zone, in case you didn’t know, is an alternate dimension discovered by Reed Richards, Mister Fantastic.
Initially, it was believed to be just a huge void, a place made up simply of antimatter.
However, the Negative Zone is also home to terrifying aliens and villains. Everything indicates that this is the plot that is being used as the basis for the story between Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel in the MCU.
This being the case, it is very likely that Ms. Marvel is now in the Negative Zone, which can be explored in The Marvels.
Ms. Marvel is available on Disney+, while The Marvels hits theaters on July 27, 2023.
A member of the Cinema Observatory since 2018, I enjoy writing about the things I watch as much as watching them. In my spare time, I also find time to read DC and Marvel, to be terrible at games and to suffer while rooting for Botafogo.
