Explanation of the conversion: Since lately in the comics Carol seems to have a lower STR unless she charges up by absorbing an energy blast, I made the last 10 points of her STR not kick in unless she has absorbed some energy in the last 24 hours.

Marvel Super Heroes #12 History: Carol was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Joseph and Marie Danvers. She enlisted in the United States Air Force at an early age, with her specialty in Intelligence work. She worked alongside her partner Michael Rossi, and met Logan sometime in this period. When she left the Intelligence field she went to work for Cape Canaveral as chief of security, and was on-hand when the Kree agent known as Captain Marvel came to Earth. Although she suspected Mar-Vell's cover identity as a spy, she felt an equal trust and romantic attraction for him. It was during a battle with Colonel Yon-Rogg that she was accidentally irradiated by a Kree device called the Psyche-Magnitron. It is believed that this device altered her based on her wish to become Captain Marvel's equal. Although not specifically designed to work with humans, the device altered her genetic signature , augmenting her physiology to super-human levels, enabling her to fly, and giving her a seventh sense. It altered her genetic structure making her a hybrid of the best attributes of human and kree and granted her the technical knowledge of a Kree military officer.

Ms. Marvel #1 When these powers manifested themselves, she adopted the costumed identity of Ms. Marvel, and fought crime and super-powered villains in New York city while working as a freelance magazine writer/editor (Ms. Marvel #1).

From there she faced such note worthy opponents as A.I.M., the Destructor and the Doomsday Man (Ms. Marvel #2-4).

She came to trade blows with the Vision II (Ms. Marvel #5) fought off Grotesk (Ms. Marvel #6) and was captured by A.I.M. and mind controlled by M.O.D.O.K. (Ms. Marvel #7).

She got a rematch with A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.K. and faced off with Death-Bird (Ms. Marvel #10).

Marvel Team-Up #62 Ms. Marvel faced the Super-Skrull alongside Spider-Man and trapped him in the Van Allen belt (Marvel Team-Up #62).

She met the Beast and Scarlet Witch while hunting for the Tiger Shark because he kidnapped Namorita (Ms. Marvel #16).

Avengers #184 She joined the Avengers and with them faced the Absorbing Man (Avengers #184)

Avengers #188 Along side the Avengers she faced the the Elements of Doom (Avengers #188) and the Grey Gargoyle (Avengers #191).

She fell under the mental domination of Marcus Immortus, who impregnated her against her will, she gave birth to a child that was Marcus Immortus himself (Avengers #200).

Freed of his control, Carol retired as Ms. Marvel after encountering the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants II where she fought Rogue. Rogue's mutant powers unwittingly drained away most of Carol's powers and memories. Professor X was able to restore most of the memories, but she was left with just her augmented genotype. Rogue went on to developed a multiple personality disorder with one of the personalities being based on the memories of Carol Danvers!

Uncanny X-Men #164 Some time later, Carol was kidnapped by the Brood, and subjected to a beam whose effect was to activate and accelerate her augmented genetic potential, turning her into the cosmic-powered Binary (Uncanny X-Men #164).

She was among the X-Men and Starjammers when they captured and saved Professor X from becoming host to a Brood Queen by cloning him a new body and transplanting his mind into it (Uncanny X-Men #167).

Not feeling any particular attachment for the people or places in her restored memories. She left Earth to pursue adventures with the Starjammers. She eventually came to exchange blows with Quasar III during Operation Galactic Storm (Quasar #33).

Quasar #34 When Empress Lilandra recalled the nega-bomb that was headed for Kree space, Binary was assigned to retrieve it. The ship carrying the bomb came through the stargate near Earth's sun causing it to become unstable. After a brief battle with Her and Quasar III Carol abandoned her mission to stop the bomb in order to save the sun and the Earth. She was nearly died saving the sun was taken by Quasar III to the Avengers mansion to recover (Quasar #34).

When the Starjammers came to get her she decided to remain on Earth and visit her parents and friends (Avengers #351).

Avengers III #1 Carol was among the members of the Avengers who were captured by Morgan Le Fay and mind controlled into becoming her personal guard, the Queen's Vengeance. While under her control she went by the name Lady Marvel. She was eventually freed and helped defeat her (Avengers III #2-3).

She eventually decided to return to the Avengers wearing her third Ms. Marvel uniform and the name Warbird. This is when she noticed that she had trouble accessing her Binary powers. She helped the Avengers in recovering a crashed plane from Project Pegasus, but was opposed by the Squadron Supreme, who were being mind controlled by the Corruptor. In the fray she faced Hyperion, but was soundly defeated when she couldn't become Binary (Avengers III #5).

This led to taking solace in drinking, until being removed from active Avengers status because of a drinking problem. She currently can only access her Ms. Marvel powers.

After quitting the Avengers for a time and dealing with her drinking problems she rejoined the Avengers. She started dating the Vision II.

She was among the heroes incapacitated by Graviton when he attempted to take over the Earth once again (Thunderbolts #57).

Note: Carol is in no way connected with Ms. Marvel II, who was Sharon Ventura, an occasional member of the Fantastic Four.

Powers: Warbird is superhumanly strong and durable and can fly. She can absorb energy and emit a blast of energy from her hands or use it to increase her strength. Under optimum conditions she can lift 50 tons.

When she was Binary she could survive in deep space and her other powers were augmented with the power of a small sun. She could surround herself with a flaming aura, lift over 100 tons, and survive in deep space. She has completely lost those enhanced powers.

When she first gained her powers she displayed a super-sense, which she called a seventh sense, that warned her of danger, but this power seem to have faded.
