With her original creator heading to DC Comics to write for Wonder Woman, many wondered what would be the fate of Marvel’s breakout teen Inhuman Kamala Khan also known as Ms. Marvel. Now Marvel Comics has revealed their plans! Coming this Spring is the relaunch of the title as The Magnificent Ms Marvel with an all-new creative team in the form of the newest Miles Morales writer Saladin Ahmed also known for Exiles and Black Bolt, as well as Minkyu Jung who’s previous work includes Batgirl, and Nightwing!
“I think she’s really the face of everything that’s new and fresh and exciting and ‘21st century’ at Marvel, and with superheroes in general. To be given stewardship of that is a big deal to me,”Ahmed told Entertainment Weekly in an exclusive announcement. “It’s always thrilling being given responsibility over a beloved character. It’s particularly meaningful for me to be taking over from Willow.
“It just seems so incredible that this character, who was just going to be a fun project for both of us loosely influenced by Sana’s own experiences growing up, had become a cultural phenomenon that was going to outlive us both,” current Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson also told EW. “Given that was true, I really wanted to be cognizant of the fact that superheroes thrive with a multiplicity of voices telling their stories. I wanted to leave on a high note.”
UPDATE: G. Willow Wilson has published this farewell letter on Marvel’s Website. Take a look right now!
With Kamala’s future looking bright with Ahmed seemingly being the all-new teen solo writer for Marvel, what could become of this new Magnificent relaunch for Ms. Marvel? Only time will tell. Check issue 1 out this Spring!
