Fans of Marvel’s Avengers video games must know who Kamala Khan is. But some others may be asking, why does she have the name Ms. Marvel? What are the powers of Ms. Marvel? And what can we expect from a series starring teenage heroes? So let’s take a stylish look at the Avenger-turned-champion and her place in the MCU for some ideas.
Who is Ms. Marvel also known as Kamala Khan?
A smart Pakistani-American geek who likes to play video games, hang out with friends and write Avengers fan fiction, Kamala is the first Muslim character to star in her own Marvel series.
According to Ms. Marvel, Kamala is an inhuman person who has the ability to polymorph all parts of the body. She began his superpower career as a friendly neighbor hero, but had other plans for Ms. Marvel in the universe, and soon she found himself embroiled in a landmark event from the Civil War II conflict to the end of the 2015’s secret war. Through all this, Kamala maintains her humor and thanks her family, friends and colleagues who are by her side.
Comics Origin of Ms. Marvel
Author G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alfona, and editor Sana Amanat created Kamala Khan in the 2014’s Ms. Marvel #1.
The story began of Ms. Marvel when Kamala was a usual 16-year-old in Jersey City. Kamala often conflict with her parents for adhering to Muslim traditions and values, even so she was very close to them. One night, after another debate at the dinner table, Kamala’s parents disallowed her to go to a high school party. In a rare revolt, she decides to go into hiding – and everything changes.
As it happened, a strange, transformative chemical cloud, known as the Terrigen Mist, floated over the city, revealed by the events of Marvel’s Infinity Storyline. Blue gas flooded the dark street, surrounded Kamala as she walked house alone. Her asleep inhuman gene was activated by Terrigen, and she was immediately bound in a cocoon to begin her transformation.
When she woken up, Kamala found out that she had an marvellous ability to change the shape of her body. A new life of her as a hero had just begun, but would she be able to push it with his old life as a normal teenager?
Powers and Abilities
Ms. Marvel has the capability to change shape, whether it is changing her looks or changing effective parts of her body, such as her paws or legs. She can arbitrarily change her shape, “embedding” or compressing, in proportion to the proportional force. She also has an modern regenerative factor which is most effective when it does not use its shapeshifting ability.
Also, Kamala is a admired fan fiction writer, and even got a chance to tell Wolverine about all the stories she wrote about him.
Based on trailers, the show seems to have changed Ms. Marvel’s abilities a bit. It looks like she has some kind of energy instead of “expanding” although she is still able to make a huge fist out of that energy.

Ms. Marvel’s relation with Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers
When Kamala was inside the cocoon, she hallucination of Carol Danvers, her longtime hero, who went by the name of Ms. Marvel before she became Captain Marvel. Kamala wanted to be just like her – hard as nails and wearing Ms. Marvel’s classic black dress (because of thigh-high boots). When Kamala woke up, she looked exactly like this for her ability to change her new shape. As she struggled with the strange things happening to her body, she heard a cry for help and saved a life while in Ms. Marvel’s form.
It was reported that Ms. Marvel had returned to her old name and costume, and Kamala had decided to take the costume in honor of her hero – with her own masked analogy. “Maybe the name is for those who have the courage to fight,” she thought. She eventually got Carol’s blessing to use the name and make it her own.
In the arc of the first major story in Ms. Marvel’s solo series, she takes on a villain who calls himself The Inventor. Lonely preying on Jersey City teens, The inventors hired them to do the dirty work. The inventor was eventually revealed to be a human-bird hybrid, who in his robotic experiments kidnapped teenagers to use their bodies as a source of energy. Kamala defeated the discoverer with the help of her friends in her first big battle.
No matter where her adventures take her, but her heart remains with Jersey City, and when an attempt to soften his neighbor was revealed as a result of Hydra’s conspiracy, she took it personally. (Especially since they used his metaphor around town in the ad). With the help of a new friend from school, she stopped Hydra on their track and defended his own city again. She will take Hydra back with the champions in the final round of the Secret Empire event.
