Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel (Collected Editions) #1) Reviews
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 ...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
I see that everyone who gave this Volume less than 4 stars is saying how they really liked the art work but didn't like the story...Well,moi, on the contrary, liked the story better than the art work. The art was a bit too goofy and sometimes even a bit weird for my taste. The story was interesting but I couldn't connect with the main character and her actions were too childish and careless. The scene where she destroys the locker room (she breaks everything in it) and gets a simple detention? H ...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
I feel a little guilty for not loving this more because I thought Ms. Marvel was going to be everything I ever hoped and dreamed for in a super hero comic book. A Muslim, POC teen with strict, traditional parents, who fights against marginalization and the forces of evil?! Fuck yeah, sign me up! Though the artwork is beautiful, I just wasn't as captivated with the story as I thought I'd be. I do plan to continue the series because I firmly believe it's really important to support books like thes ...more
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

Meet Kamala Khan:
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
