This is Monica Rambeau who went by the name Captain Marvel for a while before becoming known as Photon. I have NO idea what it is in the new NextWave book where she's not wearing this outfit.In this pic, she's making the transition from normal flight to changing into her energy form. Her energy based powers got her a spot on the Avengers in the mid 1980's.
I was running on fumes early in the week and was too tired to do this pic the justice that it deserved. I had to redraw the cape 2 times because I completely screwed-up the metallic effect. I gave her hair a bit more of a curly look she had in the early 90's. I'm not sure if I'm going to color this one all the way, but I had to at least do some flat coloring to show that she was changing. I should've stuck to my original idea and drawn some 'Kirby krackle' effects to the black parts of the legs to show the transformation. That would've made it more clear because you know there's something going on when the Kirby Krackle gets going.
