Obviously I’m a bit biased when it comes to Carol. I did look at a lot of her older covers with Carol as Ms. Marvel but to be honest, even taking those into consideration I generally felt these were stronger/more powerful/more iconic than most everything else I looked at for her.
Here’s the “criteria” I used for these
very unofficial lists.
1. Cover must feature the lady in
question, but it doesn’t have to be HER book.
2. The lady must be a “co-star” on the
cover or better. So a Team shot is okay if she’s CLEARLY at the head of
it/leading it/front and center.
3. Also worth noting that I take into
account the ENTIRE cover including how it handles title block and things like
that. Sometimes covers with crappy title block will still make it through (and
some with no title block), but it’s maybe worth knowing that I consider all
that stuff. *shrug*
I think that’s it. Not super
scientific. I also make no argument that these are objectively the “best covers
ever!” they’re just my favorites, MY bests. Lists are, as always, incredibly
