Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel (Collected Editions) #1) Reviews
Ms. Marvel has gotten a lot of buzz. A lot. People are always going to talk when one of the two big publishers puts out a comic starring a character who is not the standard white man. In this case, we have Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan, a teenage girl who is Muslim and the daughter of Pakistani immigrants. More than enough to get me interested. What got my hopes up was that this book has been selling way, way above expectations. Ms. Marvel #1 has gone through at least half a dozen printings (very, ver ...more
I'd been hearing good things about this book for ages, so I finally decided to pick it up.
I enjoyed it, and appreciated the fact that it wasn't just another same-old superhero origin story. But if I'm going to be completely honest here. (And I always try to be completely honest) I'll also say that it didn't really thrill me, either.
Part of the issue might be that I don't know *anything* about the original hero that the story is based on. That can make it a lot harder to get into a story.
But it's ...more
Finalmente Ms. Marvel no Brasil!
Adorei esse quadrinho! Kamala é uma heroína incrível, nerd, muito divertida e passa por conflitos internos muito reais e fáceis de se identificar. Já quero os próximos volumes!
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
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 ...more
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.
* Look it up your ...more
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 ...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
