The “Ms. Marvel” boss discusses the finale, ties to the “X-Men,” and partition

The final issue of ‘Ms. Marvel reveals that the series was always meant to be a story about “being human in a world of aliens,” according to editor Sana Amanat in an interview with The Verge. In the final few pages, Kamala explores her hometown of Jersey City, which has been effectively partitioned into two territories with different political leanings and economies—one predominantly populated by people from wealthy backgrounds and another primarily for people who are more impoverished or marginalized. In attempting to bridge the gap, Kamala says, “I just hope no one gets hurt.” But rather than letting her actions remain selfless, her words are met with a counter-protest of people who believe she shouldn’t be involved: “Your very existence is a political statement,” they taunt.

Introduction to The Ms. Marvel

Ms. Marvel is a fictional character who has been around for more than forty years. And remains one of the most iconic female comic book superheroes of all time. With her costume of blue, red, and then gold with star-spangled boots, Ms. Marvel is instantly recognizable to anyone familiar with comics — she’s also been around long enough that she’s had plenty of incarnations over the years. Ms. Marvel” is also the name of a franchise, now, with the current Ms. Marvel having taken over the mantle after Carol Danvers’ long stint with another variation on the character name. (Characters almost always either change their names or have them changed. Also, when they take up super heroics because that’s one of the things that happens when you become a superhero.)

The storyline of The Ms. Marvel

The Ms. Marvel storyline takes place in New York City. This is not just any NYC, this is an NYC where Heroes are facing the reality of being retired or forgotten about. Kamala Khan is also the newest in a long line of heroes and struggles with trying to show up as “the real Ms. Marvel” with the help of her friends Bruno, Miles Morales, and her idol Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel).


It has been a bit over a decade since Marvel Comics released the latest addition to their comic book line: Ms. Marvel, a female-only superhero. Created by Pakistani American Muslim writer, G. Willow Wilson, it is America’s first Muslim superhero. And has been met with an enthusiastic response with the release of Volume One and Volume Two of the graphic novel series. The storyline follows Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel), who is a Pakistani-American teenager living in Jersey City.

Kamala’s mother, a scientist and the leader of the local Muslim fan club, Al-Qaeda was killed in an explosion while trying to build a bomb. Kamala was not present during this incident and she idolizes her mother and is determined to become a hero like her. She enters a contest called Miss America which gives Kamala the chance to don the infamous red boots. She then is granted superhero status after discovering that she possesses superhuman strength with limited flight capabilities and energy blasts. And enhancing their senses, and her asthma is gone. The costume originally was purple with yellow trim, but was changed to blue with white trim since it didn’t scream “Muslim superhero”.

Decoding Ms. Marvel’s soundtrack and its significance across cultures, from Sibbi songs to Coke Studio

The Middle Eastern and Western pop music finally converged, when Indian artist Mohit Chauhan performed Coke Studio’s rendition of the Sibbi song, which went viral in Pakistan. It was a ‘historical moment’ for many listeners as it showed a cross-cultural understanding on both sides. The song, which is traditionally sung by women at weddings to express happiness and affiliation, has been covered by Coke Studio featuring Mohit Chauhan in the lead vocals. Keeping the original tune intact with some modifications to the vocals and then instrumentals, offers an example of music transcending languages and cultures.
