November's Captain Marvel #12 will begin a new story arc in which Carol Danvers will become a "dark" reflection of herself as "The Last Avenger" (via CBR).

Drawn by Lee Garbett, "The Last Avenger" will pit an apparently evil Captain Marvel against her fellow Avengers. It's unclear exactly how Carol will come to this point, but the advance solicitation says "Earth will never be the same."

"As Kelly continues her daring and defining run on Captain Marvel, in this new arc, 'The Last Avenger,' she pushes the boundaries even further by taking Carol in a dark… and deadly… new direction." Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief CB Cebulski told CBR. "And we’re thrilled that acclaimed artist Lee Garbett has come onboard to bring his spectacular storytelling skills to the series most action-packed adventure yet!"
