Captain Marvel is a character with a lot of history. Now that she’s appearing on film as the MCU’s first female hero with a standalone movie, comic nerds and newcomers alike would benefit from a refresher. Thankfully, the new book Life of Captain Marvel is here to demystify the hero by bringing her back to her roots.

In a new trailer for the comic, Marvel editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski and writer Margaret Stohl explain how this Captain Marvel book is going back to basics for both those new to the character and those who’re well-versed in her convoluted backstory.

Check it out:

Explaining the human side of Danvers (pun somewhat intended), Cebulski said that this book is going to “dance between the raindrops and find the secrets of Carol’s origins that are based in the roots of her family.” By having two different artists depict Danvers’ adulthood and childhood flashbacks, the books will explain how her upbringing influenced the hero she would become - even apart from the Kree powers.

The book is set in Maine, with Danvers on a “journey of self-discovery” that will deepen fans’ appreciation for the character if they bring in their detailed expertise or be a great jumping-off point for new readers.

Life of Captain Marvel #1 is available in stores now.
