Kamala Khan’s next Marvel Comics adventure has been revealed. As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit, a new solo series centered on the hero, will arrive this fall. Samira Ahmed (Love, Hate, & Other Filters, Internment, Mad, Bad, & Dangerous to Know) is set to pen the series, with Andrés Genolet (Runaways) tackling the art.
Ms. Marvel became a breakout star in the Marvel universe thanks to writer G. Willow Wilson’s run on the character. She has since become a true fan-favorite and is even set to join the MCU shortly. Iman Vellani will play Kamala Khan in a Disney+ show before making the jump to the big screen in The Marvels. Brie Larson is also reprising her role as Captain Marvel in the movie. So, giving the character a new solo comic series makes sense right now.
The logline for Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit reads as follows.
“After an explosion of interdimensional proportions at her cousin’s lab in Chicago, Kamala Khan’s world is turned upside down….and into a Bollywood set?! Ms. Marvel’s powers are on the fritz and time is running out to figure out what exactly is going on.”
“For kids of color, Muslim kids, there was literally zero representation when I was growing up,” Ahmed said. “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 added. “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,” Ahmed concludes.
Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit arrives in September.
