Marvel Legends - MONICA RAMBEAU!

Marvel Legends - TRU Exc A-Force 6-Pack - Monica Rambeau - Hasbro 2017

It's rare when a character changes names as often as Monica Rambeau yet still manages to always wear a recognizable outfit. When I first became aware of her in the 1980s, she was Captain Marvel, next she was Photon, then she was Pulsar, and most recently Spectrum (and somewhere in there she briefly adopted the monikers Sceptre and Daystar). Most people seem perfectly comfortable referring to her as Monica Rambeau though. I had honestly completely forgotten about this character until 2009 when I saw the Secret Wars Mini-Mates boxset (including Photon) in TRU. It brought back all these 80s memories. Since then I went back and read a lot of key stories and became a big fan. My favorites are Nextwave, Marvel Divas, and Captain Marvel #1 (1989). This figure was a long time coming. Although my perfect Monica would be in her classic 80s outfit, this modern version is a great second choice. A consistent color palette and chest emblem go a long way. Let's check her out below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are all my Monica figures: Three HeroClix, and Eaglemoss, and a Mini-mate.

And here is the whole A-Force box together: Monica Rambeau, Elsa Bloodstone, She-Hulk, Singularity, Sif, and Loki.



  1. I think I would have preferred the Captain Marvel costume (fingers crossed for the future), but damn that is a gorgeous head sculpt!

  2. Monica Rambeau's always awesome. Love this costume anyway. The figure looks really good and really about time she got this kind of treatment.

  3. Finally we have Monica. I also would have loved a Captain Marvel Monica. I hated the coat so I took it off and replaced her arms by an old Satana, and it looks great. More streamline. I also like Singularity and She-hulk. I haven't got the rest yet, cause, money...
