*From the pages of Civil War comes the tale of a man out of time!
An accident in the Negative Zone propels Captain Marvel from the past to the present day.

Brian Reed and Lee Weeks bring you the min-series that returns one of Marvel's greatest heroes back where he belongs!
Straight from the pages of Civil War -- Captain Marvel returns!
Once a devoted soldier in the alien Kree military, Captain Marvel left his home planet behind to become Earth's adopted protector, even when it came to defending it against his own people. For years, Marvel battled all manner of evil, until a freak exposure to a carcinogenic nerve gas ravaged his body with an incurable cancer. With the universe's greatest heroes at his bedside, Marvel became more than a hero. He became a legend.
In the midst of Marvel's Civil War, Tony Stark and Reed Richards created an extensive prison complex in the otherworldly Negative Zone -- but its construction in the unstable dimension had an unexpected effect: the return of Captain Marvel! Pulled through time from a past era before his death, Captain Marvel is now a man out of place, facing an uncertain life in a strange future where he is already long dead and buried.
Writer Brian Reed and artist Lee Weeks re-introduce the long-absent Captain Marvel into the current Marvel Universe, but all is not what it seems. Packed with the unexpected twists, Brian Reed's plot will shock you with its bold revelations that serve as a prelude to the blockbuster Secret Invasion storyline. *Source: Dust Jacket
