‘Ms. Marvel’ First Reactions Praise the Disney Plus MCU Show

Kamala Khan looks over her glowing hands in Ms. Marvel.

Ms. Marvel, Marvel’s newest limited series on Disney Plus, comes out on June 8—just two weeks from now. As one of the more popular characters in Marvel’s comics universe, Ms. Marvel’s entry into the MCU has met with some pretty high expectations from fans and critics. Now that reviewers have seen the first two episodes and reactions are starting to come in, how does Ms. Marvel fare?

Ms. Marvel tells the story of Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Pakistani-American Muslim who idolizes superheroes. She’s an especially big fan of Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, and fantasizes about being a superhero herself. Kamala’s wish comes true when she finds a set of wrist cuffs that give her the ability to manipulate cosmic energy, but she soon finds out that the superhero lifestyle isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Along with showing us Kamala’s origin story, Ms. Marvel will also help set up The Marvels, the 2023 sequel to Captain Marvel that will see Carol team up with Kamala and Monica Rambeau, who gained energy-manipulation powers in WandaVision.
