Fabian Nicieza, creator of Deadpool/Domino and author of Suburban Dicks and The Self-Made Widow, returns to Forbidden Planet TV to reminisce with us about his time spent writing the Genis-Vell iteration of Captain Marvel and his contribution to Marvel Comics' latest Captain Marvel Omnibus.

O-wha-tagoo-siam! Genis-Vell, son of the legendary Kree warrior Mar-Vell, takes on his father’s former mantle of Captain Marvel - and everybody’s favourite super-hero sidekick, Rick Jones, finds himself along for the wildest of rides!

Genis possesses the gift of Cosmic Awareness - a oneness with the universe that allows him to know what will happen, what may happen and what should happen to every living thing.

You might think such knowledge would make a person go mad - and you might be right! Can Rick keep him grounded, or will their unique merger drive Genis crazy even faster?

Featuring the Hulk, Drax the Destroyer, Thanos, Spider-Man 2099 and the debut of Genis’ sister, Phyla-Vell! Get ready to experience Peter David’s complete, star-spanning saga (and a wild guest issue scripted by the great Fabian Nicieza) - as cosmic as it is hilarious!
