So they definitely got something right.
That didn't stop misogynist trolls from tearing down the film online, however.

So what's wrong with it?
Over nine months after the film's release, some comic book "fans" are still complaining that Carol Danvers (Brie Larson's character in the film) wasn't sexy enough.
The tweet was quickly highlighted by Twitter user @valsreactor, who tore it down for its misogynistic message.

Also, lots of Twitter users thought Brie Larson's Captain looked pretty darn good even though her outfit wasn't overly revealing.

Fortunately, Captain Marvel's fans have her back whenever she's not around to defend herself.
