Before Iman Vellani brings the character to life on Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series, Kamala Khan is set to make her comic book return in Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit, a new five-issue limited series from New York Times best-selling author Samira Ahmed (Love, Hate, & Other Filters) and Runaways artist Andrés Genolet.
“For kids of color, Muslim kids, there was literally zero representation when I was growing up,” said Ahmed. “So when Sana and Willow announced Ms. Marvel, I was just so stunned. My heart soars for all the kids who will have Ms. Marvel comics as part of their childhood. I always tell people that in all my fiction there’s this through-line of the ‘revolutionary girl.’ What girl is more revolutionary than Kamala Khan?”
“Fans that have been there from day one will love to see how we’re playing around with her powers, exploring them, and maybe pushing them,” Ahmed continued. “I don’t want to give any spoilers, but there are gonna be some questions that arise about the source of her powers and what that means. We’re definitely going to have some food in there, we’re definitely gonna have some pretty striking South Asian cultural elements that people are gonna see right off the bat in the series. There are gonna be some familiar faces and fan favorites, but also some new faces. . . Willow and then Saladin have created such an incredible world. I’m just excited to explore it and even push it out a little further.”
Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit #1 will go on sale on September 15th.
