As a 16-year-old high school student from New Jersey with parents who immigrated from Pakistan, Kamala Khan was mostly worried about sneaking out after curfew and being accepted by her classmates. Her life became much more complicated the night she mysteriously received superpowers. In Ms. Marvel, G. Willow Wilson, brings us a superhero story about a teenager who struggles with what it means to be a daughter, a friend, a student, all while taking responsibility for the new powers she’s been given.
