Marvel Legends - BINARY!

Marvel Legends - Walgreens Exclusive – Carol Danvers as Binary – Hasbro 2022

When I was a young comic reader, I don't think there was a character who ever had more dynamic covers than Binary. Of course, I was biased towards elemental-powered-women even then. I first spied her on Uncanny X-men #164, and then later in Starjammers and X-Men Classic. I'll confess that her cosmic storylines were too complex for my young mind, but I was still absolutely captivated by this flaming inferno of a character. Because those stories were over my head, I can also admit that it wasn't until relatively recently that I realized that Binary was actually Carol Danvers. Ms. Marvel was on my radar back then, but to me she was just a silly character with "mom hair" that fought in a swimsuit with a scarf. I didn't warm up to Carol until I was an adult, and I didn't make a connection between the two characters until shortly before the Captain Marvel movie (which incorporated such a lame interpretation of Binary). But I'm over the moon that Hasbro gave us this comic figure. Let's check her out below!

Binary comes with an alternate pair of fisted hands and the same energy effects that came with the MCU Binary figure (which originally came from a Basic Series Carol and the Legends MCU Scarlet Witch).

I couldn't resist doing of mockup of her first cover.

If you want to try your own, here's a blank canvas cover I photoshopped her out of:

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are three of my comic-based Carol Danvers Figures: Ms Marvel, Binary, and Captain Marvel.



  1. Definitely need to add this to my collection. X-Men 163 was the first X-Men comic I purchased. It was followed obviously by 164. Was a fan from the start.
