Review: The Magnificent Ms. Marvel #1

The Magnificent Ms. Marvel #1

It’s not business as usual in Jersey City. Aliens are wreaking havoc in Kamala’s corner of the world, and they seem weirdly interested in Ms. Marvel…and her family.

It’s a brand new era for Ms. Marvel as a new creative team has taken on the character. Writer Saladin Ahmed takes over for G. Willow Wilson and right away differentiates his take with an interesting framing for the story.

Magnificent Ms. Marvel #1 is told from two perspectives. One is a bedtime story told by an alien to their child about the “Destined One,” who is Ms. Marvel. Ahmed though also focuses on Kamala and her attempt to balance her personal and superhero lives. What Ahmed does that’s good is that the comic acts as a really solid introduction for new readers. There’s an explanation of Kamala’s origin and sets up her world for those who might not know.

The alien aspect is an odd one that judgement is reserved to see where it all goes. The story has a lot of potential and it feels like something different but with the framing and the threat faced, plus that last page, the story is a lot of setup and mystery. That’s not bad but it’s hard to judge overall. The mystery is good. What’s presented different. But, it also feels a bit different than the more grounded expectations for the character.

The art by Minkyu Jung with ink by Juan Vlasco, color by Ian Herring, and lettering by Joe Caramagna is good. There’s some solid action sequences and they’re balanced well with the “quieter” moments of the issue. The style also continues what we’d expect from the series giving Ms. Marvel fans a consistent look. The aliens are interesting in their concept but their look isn’t anything special in that they look like things we’ve seen before elsewhere.

The issue isn’t bad but also doesn’t quite pop. There’s some solid mysteries set up and there’s more than enough to want to see where the comic goes but as is, this feels like an issue that may read better as part of a trade than on its own.

Kidnapping the best scientific minds from around the world to perfect their emergent-energy weapon. Their next target? Steel! And the Blood Cult has an ace up its sleeve: weaponized Source Wall energy that turns its victims into blood zombies. (As if there weren’t enough blood motifs in this ish…) In the Titans’ blackest night (wink), a new hero has arrived to help turn the tide.
