San Diego Comic Con, SDCC as most call it, is a hugely anticipated fan event. It’s the place where, among other things, a lot of big announcments are made. This year is no expection, and the folks at Marvel did a lot of talking about forthcoming projects. We got some character confirmations, specific release dates…
Last episode resolved most of the story in Pakistan and the ties to Kamala’s family history, but ended with a major development back in Jersey City. Things get wrapped up, with plenty of surprises along the way, in “No Normal.”
Ms. Marvel has been a fantastic series so far. It’s visually stunning and clever, Iman Vellani is doing wonderfully as the titular hero, and they’re taking time to flesh out the characters and family relationships.
Now, after a call from her grandmother, Kamala is in for a major change of scenery. It’s a bold move, leaving most of your established cast behind midway through a limited series.
We’ve had a few hints that Kamala’s powers might have something to do with her family’s history, and that idea gets fleshed out in this episode. There are a lot of balls in the air as we see what Kamala is “Destined” for.
After the events at AvengersCon, Kamala’s life is going to change, and they lead off with some obvious differences as “Crushed” begins.
Now it’s finally here, and I have to say I really enjoyed pretty much everything about the first episode.
Now, after the success of the virtually unknown Moon Knight, Marvel’s next Disney+ series is due to start soon, bringing Ms. Marvel to the screen. With the recent interest in the character, some people know that Kamala Khan isn’t the first heroine to use the codename. But what a lot of people don’t know is that she’s not the second, or even the third. Before the series debuts, it’s time for a crash course in Ms. Marvels.
With the movie coming up soon, it’s a good time to ask “Who Is Captain Marvel?” As with most comic book characters who have been around a while, the answer is both, “It’s complicated,” and “Which one do you mean?”
Marvel has been developing a lot of new characters lately, many of them females carrying their own books. I’m glad to see it, and even more glad to be enjoying it. The new Wasp showed up a while ago in one of the Avengers books, and wandered around as a background character briefly. Now, she gets her own title in “The Unstoppable Wasp.”
