Product Description

Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! Kamala may be fan-girling out when her favorite (okay maybe Top Five) super hero shows up, but that won't stop her from protecting her hometown. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity for the first time - by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! Every girl wants a puppy, but this one may be too much of a handful, even for a super hero with embiggening powers. But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. The fan-favorite, critically acclaimed, amazing new series continues as Kamala Khan proves why she's the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is!

    Kamala Khan returns! However, her stint as a superhero is running into snags. Threat of public exposure, the constant onslaughts of a ridiculous but surprisingly resourceful villain, long nights with little sleep, her nagging parents and suspicious friends all pile on top of her until she’s running herself ragged. Kamala is still figuring out the ropes of what her powers can do and the writer aptly shows us how it actually compounds her problems. This superheroine is smart, cunning and adaptable but she is beginning to realize that some problems require outside help. Perhaps it’s a little irksome to see her falling on the shoulders of other superheroes, ordinary civilians and a big slobbery dog (would Batman or Superman need such help, I wonder?). But you take into account that she’s young, she’s still learning and she’s living in a new era. Perhaps it’s not a bad thing to have a superheroine call in the authorities instead of thinking she can take on all the bad guys by herself. Once again, her Pakistani heritage figures in this installment. While Kamala isn’t spouting aphorisms or holy text, her background isn’t something to be ignored or pulled out to provide local flavor. It looms prominently in her life and we see how the input from her traditionalist parents deeply affects her life. It definitely provides a background and depth rarely seen in comics and makes Kamala likeable, endearing and accessible as a human being. Humanity, after all, is what makes for enduring characters, both in and out of the comic genre.
