Ms. Marvel originally formed part of the All-New Marvel Now! comic book branding of 2015 aimed at attracting new readers to Marvel titles. As such the comic is able to offer new ways of thinking about the character Ms. Marvel, while also maintaining links with the longer history of the character. Kamala is a complex and nuanced character who, even before gaining superpowers, is caught between the two worlds of her Pakistani and Muslim family background and her New Jersey teenage peers, thus making the narrative, in part, about issues around assimilation and integration.
