Reporter Raymond "Ray" Terrill is investigating a group of government scientists who are developing a weapon using light, when he is attacked with a "genetic light bomb" that ends up bestowing him with light-based super powers.
Kim Raver voices Carol Danvers, who took her superhero name from the Kree Captain Mar-Vell. In the comics, Mar-Vell's son and Young Avenger, Hulkling, carries the name Teddy Altman as an homage to Raver's Grey's Anatomy (2005) character from Allan Heinberg, who worked on both Grey's Anatomy and the Young Avengers.

This movie may be good for keeping a little kid quiet for an hour and a half, but that's it. The animation is awkward, the characters are underdeveloped, bland, and in the case of Squirrel Girl, extremely annoying. The villain is nothing that you haven't seen a million times before, and the films moral of "being true to/ trusting yourself" is just hammered in with no subtlety whatsoever, especially in the last ten minutes. It teases a possible sequel at the end, but I hope that never happens. It's not the worst, and I think if you have young kids they'll enjoy it, but for older Marvel fans, this is one to stay far away from.
