As Thanos eliminated half of the universe's population with a snap of his fingers using the Infinity Stones, Nick Fury saw the situation unfolding on Earth as he witnessed Maria Hill and several civilians fade away into dust, and quickly grabbed a pager to send out an emergency alert in response.
Moments after, Fury himself turned to dust as well, dropping the pager which eventually displayed Danvers' symbol, having successfully sent the message.

1. Captain Marvel
Captain Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, is a former United States Air Force pilot who, upon being exposed to the energy of the Tesseract, obtained cosmic powers. She was made into a Kree (Human hybrid) via a blood transfusion from Yon-Rogg, while having her memories removed, turning her into the Kree's weapon and a member of Starforce.
During the the Kree's war with the Skrulls, Danvers returned to Earth and began recalling her past, with help from Nick Fury as well as Maria Rambeau. Danvers also discovered that Yon-Rogg had been manipulating her for years, learning from Talos that the Skrulls were merely seeking to find a new home.
With this information, Danvers unlocked her true power and defeated the Kree invasion onto Earth that was being led by Ronan the Accuser, before setting off into the far reaches of the galaxy to finish what her late mentor Mar-Vell had once started.
