The Avengers vs. X-Men tie-in cover for Secret Avengers #27 previously hinted at the return of Mar-Vell.

The character died after contracting cancer in the '80s. He made a brief appearance in 2010's Chaos War.

Various other characters have borne the mantle of Captain Marvel, including his two children and, most recently, Dark Avengers member Noh-Varr.

DC Comics recently announced that their own Captain Marvel character would be renamed Shazam.

The publisher had a legal agreement with Marvel in which they could not use the name of the character on the cover or title of any of their publications.

Tom Brevoort will reveal more details of Captain Marvel's return during the publisher's panel at WonderCon on March 15.
