Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan listen, If you thought the Ms. Marvel team up with Wolverine couldn’t get any better I need you to peep this panel right quick then.
Sun, that. Shit. Had. Me. Dyiiiiiing!
I loooooooooooooooooooooove it. G. willow Wilson really captured the heart of Ms. Marvel in this issue. The moments she has with Wolverine where she is her awkward Kamala Khan self, then stepping up the next minute (punching out eyes and shit), following orders on the fly, and having to make the hard choice of taking a life (be it the life of an over sized suped up Mega alligator but a life none the less right?). There are great heart to heart moments that Wolverine brings up with Kamala, having to take life in order to protect other lives, appreciating the powers you get and have before they are gone, and the cost of wearing a mask and what that entails.
The art felt a bit off this issue however. Jacob Wyatt was the one responsible for the art and the style just felt different form what we are use to. The detail didn’t feel as defined as it has been in the previous issue but the story was sooooooo good that it really moved the story even if the art felt stagnant at certain points.
The best part of the book is the cosign that Wolverine gives on Kamala as he reports back to Steve Rogers on her situation and the link to the inhuman mists situation. The following panel sums up the entire feel of the book
and also sets up who the next guest appearance will be on the following page.
Kamala Khan is still where it is at man. We counting down the cameos until the big one which got to be Carol Danvers the current Captain Marvel. This is one count down a dude enjoying man.
I love this book soooooo much! My younger cousin is a 16 yr old half-Black, Half-Lebanese, Muslim-American, Blerd-in-training. Kamala was the 1st comic that I bought for her and seeing her light up at seeing a brown Muslim girl superhero that reads and writes fanfiction on tumblr was priceless. The writing and character development in this book is superb and, most of all, honest. Now if only marvel would stop skimping on the paper quality and offer the digital copy along with the purchase of the book…
