We last visited Captain Marvel here. A long list of possible reasons as to why she is so unappealing were listed, basically boiling down to the fact that she is so perfect, without struggle and that she really seems to be selfish. The former makes for little story to be had and the latter makes for generally unlikable character.
But I am thinking that there is something more. I have noticed that many lefty types are not so enamored with Captain Marvel. They might profess allegiance, because the is what they are supposed to do, but often there are doubts. There is a level of discomfort. Where might it be coming from?
I am wondering it is just as simple as the idea that the role that she takes just makes people uncomfortable. Women just are not supposed to be like that; to be uber-powerful, totally dictating the agenda. Perhaps both sexes are deep-down uncomfortable with this situation. Something says that this is just not how things should be.
It might take something like this to overcome the typical lefties programming. And it often does seem to. Probably they would say that this is a response to some learned false consciousness thing, but rather it does seem that the lefty promotion of ideas such a Captain Marvel is the real false consciousness.
Exit question — What makes for a false conscious?
