The character was created by Roger Stern and John Romita, Jr., and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 (1982).
Talking about the visual features of the character, the artist John Romita, Jr. noted that originally the character was intended to look like Pam Grier but...I just took some reference on Pam Grier, because I always loved her, and at the last moment somebody said that, "Well, we need to use this woman, here," because they thought maybe Pam Grier wasn't as good-looking as the model they found. It was fine, because by the time she got done by other artists, it ended up looking like the generic black character, anyway.
After her debut, the character appeared sporadically in The Avengers #227-347. She received a one-issue eponymous title, Captain Marvel vol. 2, #1 during this time. She also starred in Avengers: Unplugged #5.
She returned in The Avengers vol. 3 with sporadic appearances between issues #1-59. During this run, she also appeared in Avengers: Infinity #1-4 (Sept.-Dec. 2000), Maximum Security #2-3 (both Jan. 2001), Thor vol. 2, #30 (Jan. 2001) and the Avengers Annual in 2001.
After a cameo in New Thunderbolts #8-9, she appeared in Order #5-6. She starred in Nextwave #1-12. Following the cancellation of that series, Rambeau returned in Marvel Divas #1-4 and Heralds #1-5. She appears Iron Age #1 (2011).
