Captain Marvel is Good at Beat Saber, Actually

Is this another one of Carol Danvers' powers?

Beat Saber is the hottest virtual reality game out right now thanks to its fun gameplay and viral potential. Likewise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the hottest movie property right now, because it's Marvel and it's had over a decade to establish itself as the dominant pop culture force of a generation. So of course, it makes sense to combine the two.

Actress Brie Larson was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her turn as Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame. To help break the ice, host Jimmy Fallon had the two compete in a round of Beat Saber, and, surprise, Larson is really good at rhythmically destroying blocks with lightsabers.

Larson played one of Beat Saber's pre-loaded tracks, "Escape" by Jaroslav Beck, and got a score of 34,448. Fallon failed out of his own run of Beat Saber. Perhaps one of Captain Marvel's hidden powers is "being good at video games."

Beat Saber was developed by Beat Games, an indie studio based in the Czech Republic. Players wield two VR motion controllers which act as lightsabers that players then use to slice through oncoming blocks. The timing of the blocks and other obstacles are set to the rhythm of whatever song is chosen by the player. Beat Saber has won several awards, including Best VR/AR game at the GDC Awards.

Larson stars in the MCU as Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. She will be one of the heroes fighting against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, the conclusion to last year's Avengers: Infinity War which, SPOILERS, ended with a whole bunch of Marvel heroes being killed.

Perhaps these VR powers will come into play when Captain Marvel faces off against Thanos when Avengers: Endgame premieres in theaters tonight.
