So Busiek's wondering what was done with Carol Danvers...

He recently asked the following about the real Ms. Marvel, whose alteration to Captain Marvel was forced, and of recent, badly masculinized for the sake of social justice pandering:

Well of course he never got to. That's because, in a manner of speaking, he was pushed out by Joe Quesada's regime. Or, he didn't care enough about other people's creations to stick around and ensure they'd enjoy good writing, because after he left Avengers and Thunderbolts, in came the awful Geoff Johns on the former, and Fabian Nicieza on the latter, which had its original volume cancelled a few years after.

In any case, he's no longer fit to script anything involving Carol Danvers - certainly not after he wrote a nasty swipe at Jim Steranko some time ago, as seen in the screencap on the side - and I wouldn't be shocked if he'd be willing to comply with the SJW tactics Carol's suffered from of recent, turning her into a masculine-like figure for the sake of degrading social justice. In fact, Marvel was already beginning to victimize Carol as early as 2002 when she began wearing a silver body armor suit across her chest, and this could be seen in Johns's dreadful story arc called Red Zone, which moved with the speed of molasses, and was an early example of Marvel's tedious exercise in lowercase lettering. IIRC, the outfit (sort of like a bulletproof vest) also appeared in Busiek's subsequent Avengers/Thunderbolts miniseries Best Intentions, one of the last stories he wrote for Marvel at the time, and was pretty weak compared to his previous work.

Some of the ideas Busiek has for a career Carol could work in are certainly inspiring and clever, but at this point, I wouldn't expect him to convey them well. Okay, assuming C.B. Cebulski has an understanding of what makes these notable creations work, maybe Busiek could be suitable enough for writing more stories with Carol Danvers under his oversight, but it'd have to be in a context that's in synch with what the MCU used to be, not what it became under Joe Quesada and Axel Alonso. Or, maybe a better choice for a writer today would be somebody like Mike Baron, Chuck Dixon, or even an aspiring lady writer who knows how to leave partisan politics at the door and not succumb to the kind of social justice that's brought Marvel down these past years. If anything, Busiek's certainly undermined his reputation these past few years, and in the end, he's a washout whose otherwise just not fit for writing superheroes today.
