This continues to be one of my favorite Marvel titles. As Kamala comes into her own, she becomes more a part of the greater Marvel Universe.

What's up with Loki? I knkow that he's an agent of Asgardia, but an angsty Millenial Hipster agent?

So, are S.H.I.E.L.D. the comic book and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the television show canon for the other? I mean this one is all Coulson and Simmons. ( )

So, rather than study, I read this volume.

I loved it, possibly more than the second! Wilson's writing is really interesting and full of subtle references to stereotypes and empowerment in amongst all of the plot. I still love the art -- I loved that Kamala Khan's super powers also lend themselves really well to the sense of whimsy in the story.

The feminism is strong in this issue, as well as Kamala Khan challenging stereotypes that all Muslims are the same / terrorists / refugees or whatever other stereotype is thrown at her. And watching G. Willow Wilson tip-toe around pop culture references without getting in trouble for copyright infringement is great too.

This comic doesn't really feel like young adult, it feels like a good, old-fashioned comic. ( )

Very enjoyable read about a teen who has to deal with superpowers, family and religion. Add into the mix Loki and a possible romance and it's all very complicated and an enjoyable read. ( )

This was my least favorite Ms. Marvel story so far. Most of the story involved Kamala falling head over heels for an upright young Indian man her parents set her up with. Some of the graphic novel is very cutesy in a teeny bopper kind of way. However, I really missed Lockjaw and Wolverine. They added a lot to volume 2 and were pretty much absent throughout this book.

I did enjoy the introduction of a new evil group of people with superpowers. I also liked that this book does show some of Kamala’s vulnerabilities.

Overall a good addition to the series but not great. I thought there was too much boyfriend angst and not enough Lockjaw and Wolverine (is he actually going to mentor Kamala or what?). I will continue to read the series, for the most part it’s been a very awesome graphic novel series that I’ve enjoyed a lot. ( )
