"Captain Marvel’s mohawk costume is the result of [Kelly Sue DeConnick]’s bet"

Polygon:

“So [editor Steve Wacker] sent some designs that were done in-house and I did not love them. And I was like, ‘Can we get Jamie McKelvie to do this?’ And he was like, ‘No, we don’t have the budget for it.’”

...

“And so I called Jamie and was like, ‘Alright, I want you to make a bet with me. I bet if you do a Carol Danvers redesign for Captain Marvel that Marvel will buy the design from you. And if I win this bet, then I get a redesign and you get paid. And if I lose this bet, I will pay for the redesign.’”
