Ms. Marvel is set to debut within the week, and Disney is further pushing the debut of Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan. There has been a lot of buzz about Marvel changing her powers, and we have a new trailer showcasing her ‘hardlight’ ability.
Here’s another look at Kamala testing out her Green Lantern abilities:
Going back to the new trailer though, you can see that they’ve tried to make her powers look more ‘elastic’ to keep more in line with her powers from the comics. While we have her running through the city stepping on her hardlight projections, I think there’ll be a moment in the series where Kamala can project an entirely giant version of herself.
With Kamala expected to enter the big screen with the Marvels movie, I’m really hoping this series gets us excited to see more of her in the future. Hopefully she gets some fun crossovers down the line like she does with the comics. Wolverine team-up anyone?
Ms. Marvel is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega-fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels invisible both at home and at school—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?
Ms. Marvel premieres on Disney+ on June 8.
