Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal Reviews

  • Nikki

    I'm going to pretend I haven't seen/read the comments and reviews that basically boil down to "a Muslim American can't be a superhero, and because this story is about a Muslim American teen, it's not really a superhero book". Despite the fact that in many ways, this is Spider-man: family issues, school issues, identity issues, except it happens to be a female character who also happens to be a person of colour and a Muslim. There is nothing in the set of issues here that wouldn't be right at hom ...more

    Ms. Marvel was an interesting surprise even when I really did not have any particular preconceptions of it. Not negative, not positive.

    I do not think it offers anything new when comes to superhero world, unless you look at it with the eyes of diversity as our new Ms. Marvel is Pakistani and a Muslim, but it gives an interesting look at a different cultural background middle of Western world, which seems to be the main focus instead of initial superhero plot.

    That actually works good as it does sh

    We have all probably heard of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel, but now we have Kamala Khan, a New Jersey Pakistani American, who assumes the identity and takes on her role. I was very glad to see a Muslim character as a protagonist, because even though we have had “M” and “Dust”, they are not considered main characters in the way Kamala is. And it does seem to be a good series, I did win the Hugo for Best Graphic Story, however I had a few issues.

    I felt as if the series, even though it has been stat

    Obviously, diversity-wise, this gets an A+. Kamala Khan is a Muslim Pakastani-American teenager who lives in Jersey City. Her parents are very strict and put a lot of pressure on her to make the best grades, be an over-achiever, have traditional morals, and only hang around people they approve of.

    So obviously, Kamala accidentally gets some super powers and thus begins a fairly typical journey of exploring her new abilities, finding out what works, what doesn't, etc. She's got a couple of typical

    I’m a little ashamed to admit, for somebody who claims to be a bookworm and proud nerd, this is the first comic I have ever read. I’ve been meaning to read a marvel comic for years but I’ve never gotten around to picking one up. I love the format of words and letting my mind create it’s own images, so I wasn’t sure if I would fall easily into a comic.

    But was I wrong. The art style in this comic was beautiful, with vivid colours that perfectly fit the narrative.





    This story follows Kama

    "It is not going to turn out the way you think."


    My favourite part of this comic, hands down, was the perfect balance of serious matter and humour. This whole story was about self-growth and self-love, discovering who you are and finding a way to be confident and proud in that. It intertwined religion, friendship, family and just being a teenager, with humour and action.





    I expected this to be a feel good, light story but so many parts resonated with me and were things that kept me up at night thinking. I especially loved the way that religion was written into the story, with the scenes at the mosque and the conversations between Kamala and her father.



    I can't wait to read the continuation of this comic, I felt like this was more of a character and basis comic and the real action will come in the following ones. ...more

    Love the art, love how this follows an islamic girl/family, but I read this thinking that I would be okay since I've never read/seen any other Marvel material, but it references the Avengers and I just feel so lost and left behind... This story was interesting but not a lot happens, so hopefully the series will pick up!

  • Maxwell

    For a first volume, this is pretty well put together. If you're a fan of Agents of SHIELD, you will enjoy some of the connections made in this series. If not, there might be a bit of confusion about how exactly Kamala gains her powers and what exactly is going on. However, I found the storyline to be easy to follow and pretty straight forward, which is refreshing. Sometimes I feel like comic books can be needlessly confusing in order to feign complexity, but this one sticks to one girl's story a ...more
