And now... she's an Avenger?! That's great - I think there's stuff I'm missing in the Avengers and other comics... but it's good.

Ms Marvel/Kamala has more twists and turns.. her brother's getting married, Bruno has found love without her. Then there's the clone army of Kamala's that Bruno and Kamala accidently create.... Okay - time to request Volume 6 from the library... ( )

In the previous comic, Kamala's family's old friends move back to town with their attractive son whom she is interested in until she finds out that he is using his Inhuman abilities for evil things and plans on overtaking Queen Medusa. He kidnaps her brother and exposes him to the Terrigen Mist that gives him powers that he must find a way to deal with. Her and Bruno have a conversation about their relationship where she tells him that they can't be more than friends because of what she does.

Now she has been busy working with the Avengers. So busy she hasn't noticed that Bruno is dating a girl named Mike. Jealousy rouses its ugly head. But she doesn't have time for that. A relocation organization is using her face to promote it causing bad feeling in the neighboorhood. They are wanting to change the neighboorhood into something different and are handing out purple goo drinks that are causing people to turn into zombies.

Dr. Faustus is behind it all and now he has Bruno working for him in a zombie state so Kamala goes to Mike for help. In another comic, Kamala needs help with being everywhere and Bruno finds a way to create more than one of her. Her brother has found a woman to marry and she's not being there for him or for her friends or for school as she's trying to be there for the Avengers. Of course, things get out of control quickly and she finds that she needs help.

This is a great series and this comic delves deep into her emotions as it shows how she feels about Bruno who has moved on from her to someone else who happens to be really cool and you like her so you don't necessarily want him to break up with her to get with Kamala who still doesn't seem to want to be in a relationship as she doesn't have time for one. And this book explores the differences between two cultures and races marrying as Kamala's brother's bride is African American, but Muslim, yet her family is Christian. I really loved this book and give it five out of five stars. ( )

Aww, I love Mike and Tyesha! They're an amazing addition to the cast. Ms. Marvel is getting busy, busy, busy. How will she deal with everything that's happening in her life?
Also, that interracial wedding where Tyesha and Aamir wanted to show the other that they want to be a part of each other cultures was amazing! ( )

This volume is my favorite so far. Kamala is struggling with her commitments at school, at home, to her friends and family, while trying hard to be an Avenger. Superheroing takes a backseat to relationships. Bruno gets a completely new take, and Kamala has to re-evaluate her friendship with him. New characters pump up the diversity: Mike is a girl who is not thin (like everyone is in comics), has two moms and blue hair; Aamir gets an African-American bride and her family. We see issues of reconciling cultures, the impact of being famous, and most of all, Kamala must decide what truly is important. All that with great artwork and well-written, humorous dialogue. Loved it! ( )
