I actually like Carol Danvers. I find to her to be a good character. Plus, a few of my favorite Youtubers who do read Marvel comics also like Carol Danvers. As a matter of fact, she's a pretty popular character. Besides, the MCU version could be more appealing to you than her 616 counterpart.
Carol Danvers is immensely powerful. However, she is nowhere as powerful as the likes of Wonder Man, Hulk, Thor, Silver Surfer, and Blue Marvel. In the comics of course.
I am fully aware that Kevin Feign stated he was going to make Carol Danvers the most powerful hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is fine and all, but that is the MCU. The MCU versions are much weaker than their mainstream comic counterparts.
