Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! If Kamala can stop fan-girling out about meeting her favorite super hero, that is. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity -- by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. Kamala bands together with some unlikely heroes to stop the maniacal villain before he does real damage, but has she taken on more than she can handle? And how much longer can Ms. Marvel's life take over Kamala Khan's? The fan-favorite, critically acclaimed, amazing new series continues as Kamala Khan proves why she's the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is!
Soooo . . .
Ms. Marvel Vol. 2 started out well enough . . . Kamala (not to be confused with “Kampala,” autocorrect, you are useless) gets sent to one of her family’s spiritual leaders, b/c trying to keep a lid on the hero thing looks like rebellion to anyone not in the know, but instead of a lecture on obedience and respect, Kamala gets a refreshingly understanding perspective that ultimately tells her to get better at helping people.
Basically, she needs a mentor.
*giggle snorts* Kamala is my favorite. “Very claws. So amaze.”
But after a few short teacher moments, Wolverine is gone, and we’ve got significantly more unanswered questions about our girl.
At least I did. I haven’t been reading comic books my whole life, so what I know about the Kree is limited to what I saw on Supergirl . . . I think it was Supergirl . . . o.O
Anyway, after we learn about Kamala’s View Spoiler »alien origins « Hide Spoiler, she heads straight back out into danger, b/c Jersey City is her home, and now this is personal! *rolls eyes*
What follows is a super touchy-feely, working togetherness conclusion to this storyarc that is maybe an important message at its foundation, but in this incarnation is just . . . tiresome.
That being said, Kamala herself was ever delightful, and she remains at the top of my heroines-I’d-befriend-in-real-life list. And with this volume ending with a reference to the next volume and Loki (OHMAGAWD, LOKI, OHMAGAWD!!), I won’t be giving up on MS. MARVEL anytime soon.
Recommended with qualifications.
Was this review helpful to you? If so, please consider liking it on Goodreads!
You’re reading a Marvel comic, and Supergirl is DC, so you can’t have learned about the Kree from that! 😛
Did you watch Agents of Shield? Or Guardians of the Galaxy? Both of those involve the Kree 😀
Must’ve been Agents of Shield, which, yes, I did watch. I watched Guardians too, but what I remember was too involved for me to have seen it there. Somebody activated some beacon and a couple of Kree showed up to kill anyone with Kree blood b/c abomination or something like that . . . 😉
PS – Great review as usual, Jessica 🙂
Very cool 🙂

I think so. 😉
Still waiting on the library’s single copy of the first volume.

Waiting on the library would make my head explode. :/
I’m pretty sure I need to start checking these Ms Marvel, even if my knowledge of Marvel Universe is a little… incomplete!

I know nothing about the Marvel universe that wasn’t in a movie or sitcom, and I’m doing fine. 😉
