What is Ms. Marvel?
Ms. Marvel is a continuation of the previous films and series. It is about a fangirl of Captain Marvel who imagines herself to be a superhero and writes fanfiction on her favorite heroes. However, like other teenagers of her age, she has her own set of problems. First is her strict Muslim parents who don’t want her to attend the AvengerCon. This has happened because ‘there are bad boys everywhere. Our hero constantly struggles with her life, her parents, her religious identity, her school, and her dreams.
Her family consists of a strict mother, a comedy father, a kind-of supportive brother, and a sister-in-law. However, she is friends with the nerd Bruno and the rebel Nakia. With the help of Bruno, she plans to sneak off to the AvengerCon with the perfect Captain Marvel costume but finds an ancient bracelet just before she could make her move. She takes the bracelet as part of her costume.
At the AvengerCon, all was going well, until her bracelet activated and her limbs started to elongate. Kamala puts two and two together and deduces that the bracelet gives her superpowers. She eventually tries to control her powers to bring some good to the world just like her heroes, while simultaneously trying to uncover the origins of the bracelet.
She soon discovers that the bracelet belonged to her great-grandmother who had brought so much shame to her family that the family can’t talk about it without getting triggered.
So, the question becomes, what will Kamala do with the bracelet now? Will she choose to keep using it or discard it? We already know the answer to it, don’t we?
