Marvel Legends Infinite Series Captain Marvel (Maidens of Might)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Infinite Series Captain Marvel.

This is the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel. She took up the mantle a couple of years back. I quite like her costume. It's striking and she looks authoritative in it. She's got a great head sculpt. The paint spoils it for me. Her face is a tad shiny. Her eyes were painted looking up and her lips were not fully painted, making her look like she's smirking. They did a great job of her hair. It's well shaped and has good detail. It's also got some light brown shading in it. The body used is the same as Ms Marvel's and rightly so as they are they same person. All of her costume details were painted on. There are yellow buttons on her gloves and boots. The yellow areas of her costume has black smudges, most notably on her arms. She's got a new sash. The same symbol on her chest was sculpted on the buckle of her sash. 

She comes with an alternate masked head. The head sculpt is good. I like the detail on the side of her mask. The Mohawk was well sculpted and it too has light brown shading in it. The eyes suffer from dirty paint. She also comes with an energy effect piece. It's the same one that came with Jubilee. 

Articulation. She's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, torso pivot, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot.

Comparison shots.

Good figure, not so good paint. Thanks for viewing!

Although I don't collect these Marvel figures, I really like the sculpts of the figures. Very nice with cool accessories :)
