The constant judgment, the micro-managing, the need to control every aspect of your life etc., etc. The story progresses as Kamala, a total Avengers Nerd, goes to her parents asking if she could go to the first-ever Avengers Con. As expected, her request was immediately rejected. However, she decides the event is too important for her to skip out on. And along with her childhood friend, she sneaks out and goes to the event anyway. What ensued became the origin story of Ms. Marvel.
Who Is Kamala Khan?
Portrayed by Pakistani-Canadian actor Iman Vellani Kamala Khan is a normal teenage girl with an overactive imagination and an obsession with Captain Marvel. Like every other kid at that age. She comes from a Pakistani household. Like every daughter in a Brown household, she has little to no freedom. Even a small sign of disrespect or rebellion will lead to greater punishments.
She desperately wants to go to Avengers Con, but her parents are not budging. It’s their way or the highway. And Kamala chooses the high way. She sneaks out. And gets caught as she makes her way back. But she has time to focus on that because of her newfound Superpowers. Making her feel closer to her idol, Captain Marvel.

Does Kamala Khan Have ADHD?
ADHD, or Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a mental condition that starts in early childhood. A person with ADHD has difficulty maintaining attention or concentrating on a single task for long periods. Kamala has a very vibrant imagination, and she sometimes gets lost in it. Her mom says it runs in the family. Her exact words were, “I Come From a Long Line of Fantasizing, Unrealistic Daydreamers,” Adding that her mother was one too.
We don’t know a lot about Kamala’s grandmother yet. But Kamala’s powers came into being after wearing her Grandmother’s Bangle, so it’s a matter of time before we get her back story. However, daydreaming is not a symptom of a mental disorder. Having an overactive imagination is perfectly normal for someone her age. And therefore, it is safe to assume Kamala Khan does not have ADHD.
