As Protector of the Universe and de facto defender of Earth, the Kree Captain Mar-Vell has triumphed over foes large and small. But when Mar-Vell is diagnosed with cancer, he finds himself face-to-face with a foe that even his vast might can't defeat - and both he, and a universe that loves him, must rally together to accept the inevitable. Plus: The classic adventures that introduced Mar-Vell, the seminal battle with Nitro that began his descent into illness - and, in the midst of a battle against Titan's planet-sized computer system, corrupted by Thanos' madness, witness the budding romance between Mar-Vell and his true love Elysius!
