'Captain Marvel' Fan At Elizabeth Warren Presidential Announcement Goes Viral

This past Saturday, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren declared her candidacy for President of the United States of America and a fan sporting a Captain Marvel sweatshirt has gone viral.

A tweet posted by @CullyHammer asked if a member of the Carol Corps was present at Warren’s announcement. It was then shared by Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue DeConnick with a reply to Hammer’s question.

DeConnick who wrote for the comic book version of Captain Marvel and not the movie served as a consultant on the Marvel project. This granted her the opportunity to meet the living embodiment of her character Carol Danvers played by the talented Brie Larson.

It should not be a surprise to see Captain Marvel merchandise at the big announcement because the heroine represents more than just a hero. She has become a symbol of woman empowerment and the film’s tagline Higher, Further, Faster fits perfectly with the event.

1. I'm standing by for a whole bunch of "Higher, Further, Faster" tattoos, merchandise and signs...

... as Captain Marvel hits the mainstream and starts to be portrayed as a mascot of feminism.
