"Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal" Reviews
This review contains *spoilers*.
Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, a Muslim girl from Jersey City who is suddenly empowered with extraordinary gifts. When a strange mist descends and morphs Kamala into a shape-shifting superhuman... fitting in is the least of her problems.
Ms. Marvel also features religion, which, thank you. I love seeing positive portrayals of any religion. And the honest exploration of accepting and loving oneself made my heart sing.
This story is a definite win for me.
And there were so many moments that had me smiling the kind of smile one tries to suppress:
I'm always up for pop culture references.
YES for Harry Potter!!
Literally would've said the exact same thing as Kamala.
Also, the art was right up my alley:
Still thinking about this volume and its complex, powerful protagonist... so much yes! Cannot wait for what's next in store.

this was fantastic! i was a bit confused about how she got her powers, but maybe i just need to re-read it and it'll help me understand. other than that this was so great!
This series is so popular that the poster for the first volume was featured on Alex’s wall in her room at college in one of the episodes of the sitcom Modern Family. That is amazing.
Kamala is a Muslim-American teen whose parents are strict. For instance, they forbid her from going to a party with boys and alcohol, even if everybody else is going and it’s a safe enough environment.
But Kamala wants a normal life, and is tired of her parents’ expectations, so she goes against her parents’ wishes. Now what happens is not normal at all, but oh well, maybe Kamala was at the right place at the right time.
She becomes Ms. Marvel. Now she has powers and can use the latter for good. Definitely not normal. Then again, maybe normal does not actually exist.
Kamala is a wonderful heroine I had no problem connecting with from start to finish. She is a seventeen-year-old who is looking to try new—and safe, of course—experiences, just like we all were at that age.
This volume mostly consists of Kamala dealing with her new powers and Ms. Marvel title, and to do that she will need to embrace herself and open up to someone who can help her navigate through her new life. Still, there are great action scenes. I do wonder what her powers truly are because right now they seem pretty limitless. Can she really do anything and everything?
An incredible kickass series to be enjoyed by both teen girls and boys. Or adults. It’s that addictive.

Okay, since there are a million reviews with pretty pictures from this GN (graphic novel) I'm going to keep it short as I usually do with my graphic novel reviews.
I didn't think I would like this book for reasons but then I did. One never knows!
Kamala is just a normal teenage girl with really strict parents and she's just trying to get through her life.
I think she's cute with her writing Marvel fanfic. I think I might want to look into this fanfic stuff!
I'm a little confused about how she turned into Ms. Marvel but I guess I will figure it out in later books or some friends will tell me.
Just a couple more pics and I'm done. I love that she can morph or stretch, whatever, into a huge long legged woman, she can get these gynormous hands that pick people up. Cool stuff like that, oh and she can shrink to ant man size. She calls all of this embiggen <---has to do with something her mom said when she was little, if I recall correctly.
I liked Kamala and Ms. Marvel! I will be reading more of her adventures.

I feel a little guilty for not loving this more because I thought Ms. Marvel was going to be everything I ever hoped and dreamed for in a super hero comic book. A Muslim, POC teen with strict, traditional parents, who fights against marginalization and the forces of evil?! Fuck yeah, sign me up! Though the artwork is beautiful, I just wasn't as captivated with the story as I thought I'd be. I do plan to continue the series because I firmly believe it's really important to support books like these. Plus, I'm thinking it'll get better for me as I dive deeper into the story.
Love the art, love how this follows an islamic girl/family, but I read this thinking that I would be okay since I've never read/seen any other Marvel material, but it references the Avengers and I just feel so lost and left behind... This story was interesting but not a lot happens, so hopefully the series will pick up!
