Why you should be reading the new Ms Marvel
We quickly discover that Khan is a big comic book fan just like us. She has a major geek obsession with the Avengers and even writes fanfiction about them. She wants to be just like her hero Captain Marvel (a.k.a. Carol Danvers), and imagines that joining up with the Avengers and becoming a hero would be the key to figuring out who she is. She’s a great representation of a teenage comics fan, which makes her likeable and entirely relatable.
When we finally see Khan get her powers, the ability to shapeshift isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s hard to control and at first it only happens when she feels uncomfortable and wants to hide from those around her. Khan is a smart girl though, and she’s already well on her way to figuring out how her powers work.
