Ms. Marvel
by G. Willow Wilson
Call Number: 741.5 qW748m 2014 v.01

Kamala Kahn is used to being the nerdy, good girl in her Jersey City school. She loves comics, stays away from boys, and while she doesn’t always agree with her parents, she usually follows their rules. Then one day she sneaks out her window to go to a party and circumstances lead her to unleash superpowers she never knew she had.

This volume collects the first five issues of Ms Marvel. In this volume, Kamala discovers her powers,  considers superhero fashion and how it relates to body image, and meets her superhero mentor, Captain Marvel.

Kamala is a relatable, not just aspirational, superhero. She argues with her conservative parents, she sometimes feels insecure about her body and whether she’s cool enough, and she explores and questions what it means to be a Muslim teen in America.
