The Marvels is out, and I’ll be honest, this movie is better than I expected it to be. However, the best parts of this movie ironically were not in the whole of the movie itself, but at the very end of The Marvels and in the post-credits scene. In the post-credits scene, we get to see the familiar face of Maria Rambeau who is the one to rescue Monica when she accidentally performs an interdimensional travel. However, you see that Maria does not recognize Monica, her own daughter, and is being referred to as Binary by Beast. She is also sporting a red and white costume and seems to know nothing about Monica. So, now the question arises, Who is Binary in The Marvels? Let’s find out in this article!
Who is Binary In the MCU?
Okay, to answer your question, in the Marvel comic universe, Binary is the X-Men version of Captain Marvel. However, contrary to what we see in The Marvels post-credit scene, Maria Rambeau was not Binary, Carol Danvers was. A chain of events in 1982’s Uncanny X-Men #164 leads Carol to lose her Captain Marvel powers and become Binary.
She is often called one of the most powerful heroes, but one thing about the character of Binary is that she is also one of the most tragic characters in the MCU. Her origin story is filled with misogyny and objectification. She is also one of the few superheroes to ever have fallen victim to SA. Binary was also an inspirational character for people who have been a victim of the same.
If we talk about the character arc of Binary, She has the powers of Captain Marvel but was called Ms. Marvel in this universe. She initially was a part of the Avengers after their insensitive treatment of her traumatic experience, she joined the X-Men. In the post-credit scene of The Marvels, we see Maria as Binary instead of Carol. This means that all these things have already happened, and she is now a part of the X-Men.
Future of Binary In the MCU
As of now, we cannot for sure say what Binary’s future in the MCU is going to be, and let me tell you why. We know that the MCU as of now is exploring the multiverse. We also know that after Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, Deadpool 3 will take this further.
With Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine (as seen in 2000’s X-Men) and other X-Men rumored to be in Deadpool 3, I do have a theory. We are likely to see Binary fighting alongside Wolverine and Deadpool in the future, which may lead to the events of the yet-unannounced upcoming MCU X-Men movie.
However, with the lack of resources, there’s not a lot we can say about this. The Marvels has given us a canon to a huge participation from X-Men in the future and let’s see what MCU decides to do with it. Till then, let us keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
