    The concept of Green Lantern was that a dying Alien gave him the powerful ring because, he Hal Jordan, was worthy. They later introduced Green Lanterns from all over the universe.

    Marvel's original Captain Marvel, introduced in 1968, (nee Mar-Vell) was not like that at all. He was an alien soldier, from the Kree Galaxy, coming to Earth, with a lot of gadgets, but some super-powers. He was not here to do good. but to monitor the Skrulls. (the Skrulls are shapeshifters and the second villains of the Fantastic Four). Disguised as Walt Lawson, Mar-vell gets a job at Cape Kennedy. Carol Danvers was head of security. In issue #14 they both are hit with a ray gun that was supposed to kill them, it didn't.

    Several years later, Marvel was looking for female heroes because they had lost virtually all theri female readers. They introduced Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel in 1976. They referenced that ray gun incident, for the first time in eight years, as how she got her powers. What was unique about the character is that she had no knowledge of her dual identity. However, since this is a movie and not an episodic TV series to have her just get her powers from an alien solunded to much like the failed Green Lantern.

    Walt Lawson, Marvel';s first Captain Marvel dies in 1982. In 2012 Ms. Marvel, at the urging of Captain America, takes his name.

    Legally, Marvel needs a trademarked Captain Marvel to prevent DC from using it for the very original Captain Marvel from 1940. They had to rename that character SHAZAM and cannot use the word "MARVEL" on any cover. You see over the years there have been several Captain Marvels

    That Captain Marvel was put out of business in 1954 when Superman DCsued him for plagiarism. With low sales they gave up the ghost. Ironically, superman DC licensed and then bought the character in 1972. By that time Marvel was in serious business and did not want them to use the word Marvel on the covers.So they quickly developed their own character by that name and trademarked it
