After reading this second volume, I can't help wishing that this series had been out when I was still a teen. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore Kamala right now and I'm well past my teen years. I just keep imagining how much earlier I would have found the world of comics if only things I could relate to were out there! I've never been a huge superhero fan. The physics-defying outfits that female heroes were put into just pushed me away. Kamala though? She's sweet, she's slightly accident prone, and she fan-girls like all the rest of us. What's not to love?

That being said, this second volume is great! More of what I loved in the first, plus a lot more action going on. I can't get over how many times I giggle while reading these. The creators of this amazing series have managed to pack the whole shebang into one volume. You have adorable Kamala, fan-girling over meeting her favorite X-Men member. You have a message to teens that, despite what they may hear, they've got a lot of importance riding on their shoulders. That they are the future. You also have Kamala trying desperately to make her superhero life and her "normal" life mesh. It seems like a lot, but it works beautifully.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. This series is well worth your time! Whether you go into it because you love the Marvel Universe, or to experience the absolutely stunning artwork, or simply because you want to see a person of color as a fabulous main character, pick this up! You won't regret it. ( )

A certain 'short angry man who punches stuff' shows up this time and teams up with little Ms. Marvel for a while. Also, our girl gets a puppy. ( )

The second collection features Ms. Marvel coming face to face with her first archival, The Collector, a hybrid of a bird and a clone of Thomas Edison (a delightfully-weird villain). Wolverine becomes Ms. Marvel's mentor for a time and Kamala has to balance fangirling over one of her heroes with the reality that she is in better physical shape to handle their adventure. She's later paired up with Lockjaw, a large bulldog with teleportation powers. The story of the Inventor kidnapping teenagers to use them for their energy cleverly plays on the stereotyping and disposability of Generation Y in our capitalist system. ( )

This is a well-written and drawn superhero comic. However, what appealed to me about Ms. Marvel 1 was her backstory, her Muslim background, her struggling to find her identity between cultures, her teenage problems. There is almost none of that in this volume. Wolverine shows up, they battle monsters and an evil villain with a ludicrous evil scheme... where have I seen that before? 🤔🙄 ( )

This volume started off with a really strong first chapter. It was hilarious and campy.

I was much less impressed with the rest of the volume, however. I went from enjoying the absurdism of the universe to cringing at the plot.

Basically: teenagers are being used by the villain as batteries, and this is explained to be a metaphor for how older generations think teenagers are parasites who are constantly on their smartphones.

3.5 stars for crocodiles with guns on their heads, a cockatiel villain, and Wolverine. ( )
