Are you ready? Ready for another Marvel series? Whether you are or aren’t, Ms. Marvel is here and I will share my thoughts on the first two episodes of Marvel’s latest dive into a TV series.

Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, who learns she has polymorphous powers. The show stars Iman Vellani as Kamala/Ms. Marvel, Matt Lintz, Alysia Reiner, Yasmeen Fletcher, and Anjali Bhimani.

We meet quirky, charming Kamala, who is excited to attend Avenger Con, where she plans to dress up as Carol Danvers, a.k.a Captain Marvel. However, the problem is she is struggling to pay attention in school and then fails her driving test by backing into a car.

Next, she finds out from her parents that she cannot attend Avenger Con unless she goes with her dad dressed as Big Hulk and her as Little Hulk. So, much to the dismay of Kamala, she says she is NOT going to go (we all know that isn’t true). Instead, she plans to sneak out to attend Avenger Con and be back in time for bedtime.

Upon her arrival at Avenger Con, we have THAT moment where Kamala finds out she has these powers. How it all unfolds, I will let you experience for yourself without any spoilers but it was a rather cool moment.

Ms. Marvel’s Iman Vellani is Marvel’s next big star

"You’re Kamala Kahn; if you want to save the world, then you are going to save the world."

I remember watching a young Tom Holland as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and knowing at that moment that Marvel had its next big star. His fan-boy-like atmosphere amid battles brought a delightful and refreshing persona to the MCU.

Throughout these first two episodes, I saw that same thing in Iman Vellani, and the kid is a star, period. I was floored from the moment we met her doing voiceover for the entirety of the Infinity War/Endgame battle. Her personality is spunky and fun. Watching her in the different atmospheres within these first two episodes has me excited to see her interact with the main cast of Avengers.

The way this series incorporates a cultural aspect that honors the Pakistani Muslim community will significantly impact individuals who will see themselves within the series. I loved that they didn’t shy away from their practices or how they live their lives.

Overall, the first two episodes are home runs on several fronts. First, the writing was brilliant when it came to Kamala/Ms. Marvel and the foundation they laid for this character. Second, Iman is a STAR within the role. Last, the soundtrack is a BANGER. I am more invested after these first two episodes than I have been for a majority of the other Marvel TV series.

Ms. Marvel series debuts on Disney+ on June 8, 2022.
