With all of the excitement behind Marvel's Avenger's Infinity War coming out in May, I have been diving in to the Marvel universe to learn as much as I can. That led me to finally getting around to reading Ms. Marvel! I'm so glad that I did, too, because she is definitely my new favorite superhero! Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel's secret identity) is a wonderful display of not only a teenage girl on a path to discovering who SHE truly is, but a great story on how to accept who you are and love yourself exactly the way that you are.
Kamala struggles with being a Muslim american girl with crazy strict parents who want her to be "perfect" and get straight A's, go to med school, etc. But Kamala is just trying to get by and figure out who she is and her place in the world. When she is given super powers that she uses to help people a super villain harvesting teenager's energies are added to her list of problems. She does a great job of showing the struggles that every teenager goes through when trying to figure out their place in the world as well as a young superhero trying to learn their powers. Kamala has to learn to depend on her friends and know when to ask for help as well.
I LOVED IT! I'll definitely be recommending her (and probably cosplaying her ;) ) in the future.
