History: Carol Danvers entered the Air Force at an early age and rapidly rose through the ranks to become one of the leading agents in military intelligence. Following her career as a spy, she was appointed NASA security chief at Cape Canaveral, where she encountered the heroic Kree Captain Mar-Vell. During a battle between Mar-Veil and his Kree foe Yon-Rogg at a hidden Kree base on Earth, Carol accidentally was irradiated by the unknown energies of the Psyche-Magnitron, a device built by the Kree. The radiation from this machine eventually augmented her entire genetic structure -- granting her superhuman strength, the ability to fly and a clairvoyant "seventh sense." With these powers, she assumed the guise of Ms. Marvel and established herself as a champion of Earth, even fighting alongside the mighty Avengers for a brief period.

Concurrently, Carol worked as a magazine editor and freelance writer in New York City. In a battle with the power-absorbing mutant named Rogue, Carol lost virtually all her Mr. Marvel abilities, leaving her with only her augmented genetic structure. Rogue also drained her memories, most of which were restored by mutant mentor Charles Xavier. However, Professor X could not return the emotional bonds linked to those memories. During this period, Carol was a frequent ally of the X-Men -- Xavier's team of masked, mutant heroes.

Later, Carol was abducted by the alien Brood and subjected to an evolutionary ray that triggered the latent potential of her augmented genes. Thus, she became the cosmically powered mutate called Binary. No longer possessed of strong emotional ties to people and places on Earth, Carol decided to leave the planet and pursue new challenges as a member of the spacefaring band of adventurers known as the Starjammers.

Returning to Earth some years later, Carol exhausted her cosmic energies to save the sun. Her powers severely depleted, she spent months recuperating at Avengers Mansion. Now known as Warbird, she eventually rejoined the team. Carol has overcome emotional emptiness, alcoholism, substantially reduced power levels and a formal court martial before her teammates to prove herself as an asset among Avengers.
