With the release of WandaVision on Disney Plus, I thought it would be nice to highlight Agent Rambeau on Super. Black. once again. The S.W.O.R.D agent has deep roots in the Marvel Universe. I know what you are thinking, since she is in WandaVision, does Monica Rambeau become a superhero? The answer is a resounding yes! Played perfectly by Teyonah Parris, she will leave you wondering “why isn’t Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel in this scene?” Take a listen to one of our first episodes and bask in the glory that is Spectrum!

Say hello Monica Rambeau. The first black female leader of the Avengers. This episode tackles (not literally, she’s made of energy) Auntie Monica, a.k.a Captain Marvel a.k.a Spectrum! Check out the io9’s article on her. It was so eye-opening, I thought it prudent to do an episode on her.
Who is Monica Rambeau in Marvel?
A simple question deserves a long, drawn out answer. Check out all the aliases our Monica went by over the years.
- Captain Marvel
- Lady of Light
- Monica Marvel
- Auntie Monica
- Sun Goddess
She swaps names like Cersei kills Starks. Aggressively. Monica may very well have the most aliases in Marvel. Many people also wonder, was Monica Rambeau the first Captain Marvel? The answer is no, that distinction goes to some fool named Mar-Vell. A goof nowhere near as interesting as Auntie Monica.
