It’s Ms. Marvel’s Turn To Die
It’s a misnomer that nobody dies in comic books. Actually, EVERYBODY dies in comics…they just come back to life later. Kamala Khan, the latest Ms. Marvel, is a relatively new face around the MCU, and because of this, is one of the few that hasn’t died yet. That’s about to change, folks…
Marvel announced today a comic in which Ms. Marvel dies. “The heart of the Marvel Universe has stopped beating. Now join the other heroes of the Marvel Universe, the creators of Ms. Marvel, and comic fans everywhere in honoring and remembering one of Marvel’s brightest stars!” Kamala is currently serving as an intern at OsCorp in New York City, and we guess something goes wrong there and she can’t embiggen her way out of it. Happy AAPI month, everybody.
First that horrible Mary Jane subplot and now this…is there a contest at Marvel for who can deliberately irritate their readers the most? Funny you should ask…because both ideas came from the same man (big shock). Zeb Wells wrote both stories. Ms. Marvel doesn’t currently have her own book, so she will be offed in Spider-Man #26, aka “THE MOST SHOCKING ISSUE OF SPIDER-MAN IN 50 YEARS” (ha ha ha!) Wells is fast becoming one of my least favorite people of the 2020s.
The cover of a one-shot that will be released alongside Spider-Man #26. Everybody on this cover except for Kamala has been dead before.
Of course, no one believes Ms. Marvel is DEAD dead. They never are. Many have speculated that this is a scheme to reboot Kamala without the Inhuman origin for her superpowers, which was foisted on her thanks to 20th Century Fox holding the movie rights to Marvel’s mutant characters. Now Disney owns the entirety of that studio and can put all the mutants onscreen that it wants (it just hasn’t gotten around to it yet). Poof, one death and resurrection later, Kamala is a mutant now, maybe with construct powers like her TV and movie counterpart.
Considering Kamala will have her big screen debut in The Marvels later this year, and Marvel would probably prefer some tie-in reading material, we expect this to be one of the fastest resurrections ever.
