One of the numerous causes Kamala Khan has endured as one of the vital beloved Marvel characters to debut within the final decade might be attributed to the truth that, like Spider-Man, she has a mantra — a easy, easy-to-understand motto to stay by and as much as, one thing anybody can connect with even when they don’t share her background. In the latest trailer for Ms. Marvel, the place Kamala will make her MCU debut, that mantra is entrance and heart: “Good is not a thing you are, Kamala,” her Sheikh tells her in the beginning. “It is a thing you do.”
That, like Peter Parker’s “with great power, there must also come great responsibility,” is the rallying cry for the younger new Ms. Marvel (performed right here by Iman Vellani), and the latest trailer does a reasonably good job of laying out all the opposite causes she rocks in a good 60 seconds. There are the cool matter manipulation powers she will get from an influence band, her plucky superhero fandom and elaborate Captain Marvel cosplay, and her id as a Pakistani American teen training Islam within the slowly diversifying however still-quite-white Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Altogether, it quantities to what’s going to hopefully be a breath of contemporary air for Disney Plus. Ms. Marvel premieres on June 8.
