A Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City, Kamala Khan idolized Super Heroes like Captain Marvel, never dreaming she’d have the opportunity to join her role models in safeguarding society from the forces of evil. With an Inhuman ability to alter shape and size, the newest Ms. Marvel employs an idealistic attitude as much as any power to make the world a better place.
Ms. Marvel Comic Story
The comic book started back in 2015 created by Sana Amanat
When Black Bolt of the Inhumans released the Terrigen Mist into Earth’s atmosphere, transforming and empowering several latent members of the super-powered race, even the silent monarch could not have guessed the effect his actions would have on teenager Kamala Khan—or in turn, how Kamala would affect the world around her. Prior to her metamorphosis, the Muslim American youth dealt with problems like balancing her family’s religious and spiritual beliefs with the society she lived in, not to mention fitting in at school and other typical problems facing a girl her age.
Upon having her Inhumanity awakened and discovering she could now extend her limbs, alter her appearance, and shift shape in other manners, Kamala immediately crafted a costumed identity in line with her heroes. Choosing to become part of Captain Marvel’s legacy, the youngster adopted the discarded Ms. Marvel name, and with the help of her friend—and unrequited crush—Bruno Carrelli, a tech wizard in his own right, dedicated herself to cleaning up the criminal element of Jersey City.
Ms. Marvel Review
I have seen a ton of reviews online of the series, and a lot of them do not like the series that being said, most of the reviews are from grown men who for some reason fail to see the amazingness of a female superhero. So here is an honest review of the series and what the cast themselves think of the series. Recently did the virtual press junket for the show and everyone was super excited!
In the first two episodes, Kamala’s hero worship of Captain Marvel (played in previous films by Brie Larson) makes sure that the well-established Avengers are never too far from mind. Still, it’s undeniably refreshing to see an origin story from the perspective of a Muslim Pakistani American, whose only role in the first wave of Marvel movies might have been handing Captain America a sandwich from behind a bodega counter. Whether exploring Kamala’s life at school, in the mosque with friend Nakia (Yasmeen Fletcher), or at home with her mother (Zenobia Shroff), father (Mohan Kapur, delightful), and brother (Saagar Shaikh), the series makes her specific corner of the world feel fleshed out before too long. And as played with infectious charm by Vellani in her first TV role, Kamala is a believably starry-eyed teenager whose bursting creativity and imagination spill over onto the screen — often literally.
Kamala didn’t know herself how different she was until that night she snuck out of her parents’ house to attend AvengerCon: the first-and-biggest gathering of superhero fans this side of Brooklyn. She dressed as Captain Marvel, of course. Who else? But she also slapped on a bangle that supposedly belonged to her mysterious grandmother. And whaddya know? Thanks to that bracelet, Kamala suddenly started manifesting all these strange, stretchy, shiny powers that she never knew she had.
Why, Kamala even saved a fellow student at AvengerCon in genuine superhero fashion. Sure, Kamala kinda-sorta put the girl’s life in danger in the first place, but hey. Accidents happen.
Now, Kamala’s determined to find out just how far these superpowers, um, stretch. Bruno, her very best friend, will be her loyal sidekick. And who knows? Maybe she can be Jersey City’s very own superhero: Your friendly neighborhood … um, Captain Marvel knockoff?
Well, Kamala will come up with a name later. For now, she must explore her super abilities, grapple with her family’s complicated past and, if possible, steer clear of those government agents who seem determined to track her down and bring her in.
Yeah, Kamala Khan’s not normal. Not normal at all.
Even the man himself Kevin Feige likes having new characters like Ms. Marvel in the Marvel universe. “Why not, I say. I mean honestly Marvel it’s such a privilege because not only are the re- interpretations every few years of existing wonderful characters, but every once in a while, and it does seem like every decade or so, there’s a new character that comes around that catches the audiences imagination.”

Ms. Marvel is a breath id fresh air perhaps that’s in part because it feels so different from Marvel Studios’ previous Marvel Cinematic Universe series for Disney+.
While many critics suggest Ms. Marvel is for younger a younger crowd specifically teenagers, I can say that it is a great show for the whole family that instills family culture regardless of what race you are.
