Kamala Khan is a 16 year old Pakistani American living in New Jersey. She is exposed to the Terrigen mist, which activates her Inhuman powers to alter shape and size. She takes on the name of Ms. Marvel to honor her hero, Captain Marvel.
I do love the character of Ms. Marvel. She reminds me of an updated young Peter Parker in the way she approaches being a hero and her high school days. I am excited to see this character make her way into the MCU.
