(KGTV) — Carol Danvers has landed in Anaheim.

Captain Marvel herself is now at Disney's California Adventure Park, ready to take on any shape-shifting Skrulls or any baddies who venture into the theme park.

Fans can find the Marvel hero at Hangar 12 in Hollywood Land from 9:25 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a limited time this season, as her F-15 Eagle jet is being readied for a special mission from a S.H.I.E.L.D. hanger, the park's website reads.

Captain Marvel joins other comic favorites Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Wakandan guard Dora Milaje, and the Guardians of the Galaxy at California Adventure, ahead of a planned Marvel expansion at the park.

The park's former "A Bug's Land" site has been demolished to make way for the superhero area of the park. While the "Global Avengers Initiative" was slated to launch at Disney's parks in Anaheim, Hong Kong, and Paris this month, an opening date for the area's opening locally has not been announced.

But word is, Tony Stark is retrofitting an old Stark Industries site into a new hub for heroes, according to the park, with attractions featuring Ant-Man and Wasp, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Captain America and others.
