    The Best New Super Hero In Ages, October 28, 2014
    By 
    Stephen Vincent Kempton (Cottage Grove. MN) –

    When this book was first announced I read the description and decided unfairly that this was not a book for me. They were rebooting Ms. Marvel as a sixteen year old Muslim girl living in New Jersey. What could I, a 57 year white male living in Minnesota, possibly have of interest in a book like this ? But I heard lots of good things about the book so when I found it severely discounted I gave gave it a try.

    I am glad I did. It turns out this is a book for anyone who likes good writing and a unique fresh take on a very cookie cutter genre. It is also a book for anyone who enjoys great art work and coloring. In short, it is a book for anyone who loves comics.

    Collected her are the first five issues of the 2014 Ongoing Marvel series plus the relevant pages from Marvel Now Point One. In the back of the book it has alternate covers, Character designs and even a coloring example.

    G. Willow Wilson broke into the comic field in 2007 with her Vertigo graphic novel CAIRO she continued with her Vertigo series AIR, then her first superhero work on VIXEN. Her first novel ALIF THE UNSEEN won the 2013 World Fantasy Award for best novel. She is herself of Muslim faith and spent her twenties living in Egypt.

    Adrian Alphonsa is a Canadian artist who came to prominence with the charming art for Brain Vaughn’s Runaways. Mr. Alphonsa’s realistic depictions of children made him a great selection for this book. Sadly, I could name a couple Big Name Artist’s who totally lack this ability. They draw children and teens simply as smaller adults. Adrian’s art has evolved a little since Runaways and he has a very fine line drawing style that evokes a whimsical mode in which he portrays some of the characters as having exaggerated faces. This is a style which works perfectly.

    I also found the coloring done by Ian Herring to be excellent and it added nicely to whole package. I find most modern coloring to be over-done and too dark so that it obscures the art work, this was clearly not the case here.

    The story itself involves Kamala Khan an ordinary Muslim girl in Jersey City who writes Fan Fiction and dreams of being a Super-Herione. While her origin is not fully explained in this volume (that will be in the next collection) she ends up with elastic like powers which not only allow her to stretch her body out like Mr. Fantastic but change her physical appearance.

    The first form she appears in is almost wish fulfillment as she takes on the form of the Carol Danver’s Ms. Marvel at her sexiest best. She has long flowing Blonde hair and a skimpy costume. But in this reality based story, the high boots chafe her and the costume gives her a wedgie.

    The story follows Kamala Khan and her gang of friends as she learns about her powers, makes mistakes and tries to do good. Like Peter Parker decades before her, things never quite go right for Kamala and she winds up being grounded most of the time.

    The Inventor is first real villain that Kamala encounters. He is operating behind the scenes orchestrating much of the bad stuff. Towards the the end of the volume we finally get a peak at the Inventor and it is quite a shock. I look forward to all her future meeting with other heroes and bigger villains in the Marvel Universe.

    Please Sample this refreshing take on Super Heroes and support this excellent book which is truly meant for All Ages. Highly Recommended.

    What becoming a superhero would actually be like, June 21, 2017

    This review is from: Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel Series) (Kindle Edition)
    I hadn’t realized it before, but this type of superhero has totally been missing! I want to compare her to Squirrel Girl because they both seem like ordinary people you might actually meet, but where Squirrel Girl doesn’t really take things seriously and doesn’t seem to have any problems with her powers, Kamala has a lot of problems, and her powers reflect that. I like both of them, but I like how Kamala is always pushing herself to become better and do things that are out of her comfort zone. They’re both female superheros who have powers that have nothing to do with being sexy, which I also find refreshing. She’s not quite as funny as Squirrel Girl, but she’s very earnest, and tries hard even when she’s unsure of herself, something I think a lot of people can relate to.

    Ignore the hype; this is just good storytelling. Good, but not excellent., April 1, 2015

    Ms. Marvel, Vol 1: No Normal is the story of Kamala, a 16-year-old, Pakistani, Muslim girl who gains a strange array of super powers while in a bizarre mist that covers her home state of New Jersey. She can grow bigger, grow smaller, make parts of her (such has her arm) bigger, and heal herself from grievous injury. Her parents are strict, and she’s always in conflict with them, perpetually grounded, so she has to sneak out at night to do her super hero business. She always seems to get caught.

    I expected a lot from this series because it’s gotten so much acclaim. Of course, it’s very hard to live up to its billing as, “the most important comic published in 2014.” My question is, “important, how?” Do the critics think that all-of-a-sudden, Americans are going to read this comic, join hands, and stop the perceived persecution of Muslims across the globe? I’m being facetious, but why can’t this comic just be billed as what it is, a charming tale of teenage life, of a girl who just happens to have superpowers and just happens to be Pakistani? In the end, I liked this publication, but I don’t know if I’ll be chomping at the bits for Vol. 2 to come out. I’ll probably continue reading this comic. ****
