Carol Danvers enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an uneven but mostly solid origin story, which also happens to be a quasi-origin story for Nick Fury, too. STORY It's the mid-1990s, and in another corner of the universe, the heroic Kree race is in an all-out war with a shape-shifting species known as the Skrulls. When a mission goes awry, Kree warrior Vers (Brie Larson) finds herself stranded on planet C-53 (Earth) and in the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nicholas J. Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). As the Skrulls chase Vers for reasons she doesn't fully understand, she and Fury must join forces to unlock the secrets of her past -- secrets that could hold the key to ending the Kree/Skrull war and save the universe.
