Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel (Collected Editions) #1) Reviews
So Kamala is a nerdy Jersey Girl who gets hit with Terrigan Mist, and suddenly finds herself able to shape-shift.
Because she's always felt like the odd one out, she uses this ability to morph herself into the image her hero, Carol Danvers. With a few, um...costume modifications.
What? She wanted to go with the Old School look, ok?
Don't worry, she'll figure out why Captain Marvel switched to a more practical costume soon enough.
Do we need another teen superhero?
So, basically, this stor ...more
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
This was a fun start to the reboot and I'm looking forward to upcoming volumes.
WHAT I LOVED:
- Pakistani American Muslim heroine! Can we get a hell yes for diversity?
- plethora of side characters that I'm looking forward to getting developed more in the future (Bruno is adorable, btw)
- Loved the art and the colors used
- Coming of age and superhero story combined
WHAT I DISLIKED:
- I found her powers and how she got them kind of confusing. I hope that is explained in the future
- as other hav ...more
this was fantastic! i was a bit confused about how she got her powers, but maybe i just need to re-read it and it'll help me understand. other than that this was so great!
Kamala Khan is just an average high school kid struggling with the classic teenage dilemma of trying to both fit in and be herself at the same time, and her Muslim faith is one of those things that sets her apart. She dreams of being a superhero as confident and cool as the Avenger she idolizes, Captain Marvel a/k/a Carol Danvers. However, after developing superpowers because she’s exposed to the Terrigen Mist* Kamala quickly learns that her life has gotten way more complicated.

Meet Kamala Khan:
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
When Ms. Marvel begins, Kamala is the teenage Muslim version of Toula in MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. She's lamenting the uncoolness of her heritage and daydreaming about being a blonde, kick-ass boot wearing superhero.
It's the weekend and (once again) she's forbidden from g ...more
charming. G Willow Wilson and editor Sana Amanat make respect for diversity look so easy and natural. this groundbreaking series featuring comicdom's first Muslim female lead has a lot of points it wants to score regarding difference and it wants to do it in a way that is both respectful and fun. it succeeds. a winning game!
I love that it wants to have it all without sliding into sloppy generalizations or annoying binaries. the need for tolerance is emphasized but critical appraisals go in all d ...more
This series is so popular that the poster for the first volume was featured on Alex’s wall in her room at college in one of the episodes of the sitcom Modern Family. That is amazing.
Kamala is a Muslim-American teen whose parents are strict. For instance, they forbid her from going to a party with boys and alcohol, even if everybody else is going and it’s a safe enough environment.
But Kamala wants a normal life, and is tired of her parents’ expectations, so she goes against her parents’ wishes. ...more
