I read issue 1 and Marvel has got something good and solid here. Maybe not groundbreaking fancy or controversial-bait like Miles Morales' intro, but I'm happy regardless. I see potential here with this character and with the storyline. Marvel's writing tends to be better (on aggregate and average) than the other firms (ESPECIALLY A CERTAIN COMPANY THAT SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS AND SHOULD KNOW BETTER BY NOW) and this comic book reflects that.


OK Writers, nice stuff out of the way; she's a super hero now. Who's she gonna fight? That is pretty much the point of having super powers; so you can fight crazy people in colorful outfits and save orphans from poorly built collapsing orphanages (or ignore the dying kids and keep fighting - LOOKING AT YOU, EDDIE BROCK).


I want to see her fight the following good guys

Dust - she is also a Muslim, a teenager, and super hero. They could team up, fight, or fight and team up. She's on Team Wolvie so predictability is waaay out the window with that bunch. There's a lot you can do with this match up if you're bold/clever.

Arabian Knight - a jerk hero from the Red Hulk book, magic powers, thinks he's a modern day Alladin. You know he's gonna run his mouth, say something stupid/non-PC and Ms. Marvel ain't gonna put up with it. Have her give him a No-Holds-Barred-Beatdown, preferrably with his own sword (or his belt, or his shoe - 1979 Garden Shoe hockey fight style). Lots of comedy potential here too if you don't want them to fight each other.

SHIELD - everybody fights SHIELD once (or multiple times, LOOKING AT YOU, STEVE ROGERS) in their hero career. It's almost a rite of passage.

Punisher/The Thunderbolts - She needs to fight people who won't hold back or who blur the lines between hero and villain, so we can find out what her 'lines in the sand' will be and what sort of hero she will be.

Carnage or someone similar - Carnage isn't really people anymore, so let's see how she reacts under real pressure. Will she fold, rise to the challenge, or activate a Superpowered Evil Side?

The Avengers - Everybody beats up the Avengers. Bonus points if she CurbStomps the Avengers while being a MEMBER of the Avengers. This actually happens a LOT to them, almost a yearly thing like 4th of July or Easter.

The Badoon or Brood or Mole Men - Let's see what happens when she gets to "cut loose", not hold back, and fight without worry about morality or leaving survivors. Bonus points if the Fantastic Four show up and deliver an Aesop about knowing which group of non-humans you get to mercilessly slaughter and which ones you shouldn't (unless they've switched sides again). She should then complain about not getting the Super-Hero Guide Book (Approved by the Comics Code Authority) in the mail when she started her career. There's a lot of potential here as well, since there's a lot of Inhumans/Skrulls/whatever running around Earth these days.


Make the comic interesting and the fans will come.

I just want to say that I am very disappointed in Ms Marvel. I looked forward to seeing it all over December after one of my teachers mentioned it was to be about a Muslim girl who becomes a superhero - since I am Muslim and also a girl/woman I was hoping to see us portrayed as we really are. imagine how happy I was to see the cover showing ms Marvel as small, with short dark hair and no shape really to speak off.  


it was all good until the last page after she is "changed".  Why did she have to change into a tall leggy strawberry blonde?  I will never be tall or leggy or have that hair. Ms Marvel cant be a pakistan girl and what you showed her as in that last page.


So sad    I was so made I tore the book into pieces

Just finished reading this and I am very excited for the future of this series. It has been a long a time since I read a comic book origin that was instantly relatable and universal in its coming of age story. Kamala reminds me of a young Peter Parker struggling to fit in. The strength of her story in particular is the grounded reality which she stems from. Her family very intelligently captures the various cultural nuances she has to deal with and it's nicely juxtaposed with the realistic understanding or lack there of from the kids at school. Throughout all of this, Kamala is her own character caring about the things she cares about and having those things be her motivators - an area which she even edges Peter Parker in when he was first introduced. So happy that Marvel is going out their way to tell stories that we've always loved from perspectives we've never seen before.

It is a sad day when someone expresses an opinion that is clearly meant to inflame and distress those around them. It points to a lack of self-esteem and a (baseless) need to feel important. It seems difficult for some people to remember that this country, the United States of America, was founded by Immigrants fleeing religious persecution, thieves, murderers and others that simply wanted a chance at a new life, hope. Some of the descendants were also responsible for atrocities visited upon the native inhabitants as well as furthering a despicable slave trade (both forced and indentured). If @GhostPrime truly has a grievance with this comic may I suggest you do it with your wallet and not purchase it. It is obviously not meant for your "sensitive sensibilities" and in my honest opinion, the only treasonous act going on here is yours.

@Sabahat2chat  You do realize that she changed into the old Ms. Marvel at the end, not just some blonde girl, right? You know the hero she idolized, and wanted to be, the hero that talked to her in her dream/hallucination. That was definitely symbolic of the fact that she is no longer the Kamala that she once knew, she literally IS Ms. Marvel now. Also, her power is to shape shift, apparently, so the transformation made complete sense. Perhaps you should know who Ms. Marvel is/was before making such brash assumptions. Otherwise, I am looking forward to the series, interesting character, and some real potential for her development, and a new angle of struggle. My only complaint is that it comes out once a month.

@Sabahat2chat  She spends the whole issue wanting to be "normal" and feeling like an outsider, then ends up as this tall blonde woman and we can assume it's the person she's wishing she was.  To me this seems like the set up for an Aesop about wanting to be someone you're not or loving who you are.  I'm not trying to imply that you're wrong to be upset, just that perhaps we should let the story play out a little more before we write it off.

@inolasprimal @GhostPrime GhostPrime is right about his political views and I will agree with him politically but when it comes to the comic world than I would prefer the original Ms Marvel than this comic. No offense meant

@GhostPrime  Because all muslims are crazy jihadis right?


Are Ice Cube, Lupe Fiasco, and Snoop Dogg all Jihadis too?

@GhostPrime Good Lord, all they're doing is trying to represent more cultures that exist within America and the rest of the world. Also, don't group all Muslims in with the Taliban and other extremist groups. Just. Don't.

@dhesi @inolasprimal @GhostPrime  none taken....however its just a comic book, an art form and claiming that Marvel is a 'hot bed' of Jihadis is shortsighted. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. When we can agree to disagree everyone wins. That is what makes us strong. My opinion is no-one is right. and no-one is wrong. It just is
