WandaVision Ep. 5 Teases Monica Rambeau’s Role & Powers in Captain Marvel 2

Even before WandaVision premiered on January 15, 2021, fans were excited to see what kind of role would Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau would have in the said show. And throughout the first five episodes, we have seen Monica Rambeau be a prominent part of WandaVision and her developing relationship with Wanda. She also tells Wanda that she willingly chose to let Monica enter her reality of Westview, and threw her out with force in such a way that she would stay alive.

SWORD Captain Monica Rambeau will not go from a super-agent to a full-fledged superhero until Captain Marvel 2, but it seems like she already has superpowers in WandaVision. After being sucked into the “Hex” – anomaly named by Darcy – bubble conjured by Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) — where Monica acts as the groovy Geraldine in the WandaVision sitcom until she’s rocketed out of Westview circa the 1970s — Monica is possibly exposed to an “extremely high level” of cosmic microwave background radiation. The CMBR emitting from Westview’s perimeter is relic radiation dating back to the Big Bang, the same event that created the Infinity Stones, but Dr. Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) determines the radiation to be within a safe limit “for now.”

WandaVision just released its 5th episode, called, “On a Very Special Episode…,” in which we see Monica undergoing some testings while S.W.O.R.D. analyzes her uniform worn inside Westview. When an X-ray turns out blank, the radiographer deduces there must be something wrong with the machine and requests another blood test from the fatigued Monica. In the Marvel comic books, Monica Rambeau becomes the first female Captain Marvel when a criminal scientist’s weapon bombards her with extra-dimensional energy. Endowed with the ability to transform into and control any form of energy — including gamma rays, ultraviolet, infrared, visible light, microwaves, and X-rays — Monica adopts such superhero identities as Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum.

“Monica Rambeau has held many monikers over the decades and I think they’ve all been really special in a very particular way. I don’t know how or who she will be in the MCU,” Parris previously told Variety. “Because when I tell you, she changes names and she kicks butt in all of them. So, I don’t know who she will be in her superhero form. But I am excited by the thought of many of them.”

After WandaVision, Parris joins Larson and Ms. Marvel star Man Vellani as a part of a superhero trio in Captain Marvel 2. Monica’s “Aunt Carol” — Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), the cosmic superhero called Captain Marvel — became one of the most powerful beings in the universe when an alien weapon exposed her to the cosmic energy of the Tesseract, one of the six Infinity Stones.

Captain Marvel 2 will hit the theatres on November 11. 2022, and WandaVision is currently streaming on Disney+, with more episodes to go, while every new episode airs each Friday.
