Captain Marvel’s every listed powers and abilities can be raised to mighty powers if she transforms into Binary.

But what is Binary?

During her superhero career, when Captain Marvel kidnapped by alien Brood (who is a race of insectoids beings), they experiment on her with evolutionary rays. But it triggers her inner hidden potential.

Thus, Captain Marvel empowered by it and became the strongest cosmic powered being known as Binary.

In his Binary form, she can access her powers to fullest levels. Meaning she’s like Phoenix Force if we want to compare it with someone else.

When Captain Marvel remains in Binary form, she is capable of tapping into White Hole (opposite of Black Hole) which grants her to use cosmic energy to her fullest capacity.

Most important thing is that even her Binary powers faded away, she still part of it. Hence she can absorb energy and project it in a much better way than she was before.

However, like I said before if Carol consumes more and more energies, she could get temporary access to her Binary form.
