In 2016, Marvel creative producer Joe Quesada became interested in Kamala Khan’s story after noticing an apparent reader demand for a graphic novel. Thus, the idea was born to launch a film about an American woman with Pakistani roots who one day discovers excellent abilities in herself.
Moreover, the creators deliberately abandoned the idea of showing an adult heroine, deciding to touch on a more tender age of the character and show how a teenager experiences an unexpected gift. Today, all fans of the comics are waiting for the arrival of the new Marvel show titled ‘Ms. Marvel’ on Disney+.

Ms Marvel: Who Is She?

The second is Sharon Ventura, part of the Fantastic Four and later known as the Woman Thing, following a change undergone by some cosmic rays after her Dr Karlan Sofento used the title of Ms Marvel during the period of the Dark Reign. Until November 2013, Kamala Khan did not make her debut in number 17 of the Captain Marvel comics. It will be precisely on the latter that the Disney+ TV series will be based.
Kamala’s character is inhuman and can stretch and hails from Karachi, Pakistan. Ms Marvel’s powers manifest after a party where Kamala is offered a glass of vodka. The girl, then sixteen, leaves the party and comes into contact with the so-called Terrigenous Mists. Natural mutagens in vapor are already seen in another Marvel series, Agents of SHIELD, of which the seventh and final season is coming.
