Is Kamala ready to wield these immense new gifts? Or will the weight of the legacy before her be too much to bear? Kamala has no idea, either. But she’s comin’ for you, Jersey!

It’s history in the making from acclaimed writer G. Willow Wilson (Air, Cairo) and beloved artist Adrian Alphona (RUNAWAYS)! Collecting MS. MARVEL (2014) #1-5 and material from ALL-NEW MARVEL NOW! POINT ONE #1.


I love the new Ms. Marvel. She’s a great, diverse addition to the Marvel universe.

Kamala has to balance her strict family rules with the modern world. She wasn’t allowed to go out to a party, so she snuck out and ended up with superpowers, which may or may not be a good thing. Her brother contrasts her, because he is extremely religious, even more than their parents.

I loved the introduction to the superhero, Ms. Marvel. At first, Kamala turned into the original Ms. Marvel, who was a white, blonde woman in a skimpy outfit. Kamala’s version is very different. She is a young, brown girl, who is more modest.

I love Kamala. I’m excited to see where this story goes!
