I am a little torn on this because on the one hand I don't love this sister storyline that came out of nowhere, but on the other Thompson did such a great job writing it. The scene at the end is very touching. She just might win me over. I had wished Carol would actually continue on in the role of Accuser but Lauri-Ell doing so is also fitting. I hope she frequently calls upon Carol to aid her and we can get Captain Marvel in some epic space stories. Though I would miss Hazmat as her 'sidekick' here on Earth!

Oddly enough do actually love this series an awful lot. It has great characterisation, good artwork and the stories are for the most part interesting and well thought out.

Lauri-ell would be very inexperienced in the Accuser role so yes she will likely call upon Carol to aid her and it is interesting to see how this impacts upon the Kree-Skrull united empire.

One thing that has bothered me though were exactly are there empires supposed to be based? the Skrulls got wiped out and the Kree nearly got wiped out by the Shi-Ar? are they restoring there empire in the Milkyway? that could cause problems.
