    All in all, Ms. Marvel would have been hard-pressed to find a better ending before Secret Wars than the one the creative team presents. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) May 13, 2015

    Kamala narrates during a climactic scene, “I gave him power over me — power over what I do, power over my identity. No more.” And that's what makes Ms. Marvelsuch a wonderful read. In every issue, Kamala is not only exercising her newfound powers more, but she's expressing agency as a person. She's a teen whom everyone, from children to adults, can look up to. Lineage drops a major reveal in this issue, and our anticipation is high for where Wilson will take Kamala next. Read Full Review

    TL;DR: Did you know Kamala's related to many Inhumans? Lineage did. WHICH ONES DO I MEAN? WHO IS LINEAGE? AREN'T ALL INHUMANS RELATED? Answers to these questions, but also more questions, in Ms. Marvel #15. Read this book. Read Full Review

    This issue reaches a fittingly bittersweet conclusion, emphasizing both Kamala's heartbreak and the crucial bond she shares with Bruno. As always, elements like that are what truly distinguish this series. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 14, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #15 brings a close to this mini-arc and despite a predictable story, most other areas of the comic hold up rather well. The execution of the plot is good, the writing is strong, and the artwork is very nice. Next time, this series takes us directly into the events of Secret Wars. It's a shame that this comic will be sidetracked for a company-wide event (especially since it managed to miss the last two thankfully), but maybe the comic will be able to make something of this. We'll have to see when the time comes. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 14, 2015

    As we get ready for the Secret Wars tie-in with the Last Days run, what we get here brings things to a certain concluding point that plays out in other books to deal with Lineage and his plans. But focused here, we get to see Kamala take a stand for herself, realize what kind of position she's put herself in by giving power to others, and reasserts who she is in a strong, capable and confident way. For the most part. But part of that lightness from her is just a coping mechanism popular in movies and comics with the quips and exaggerated expression and the like, made more so by her embiggening side. While not quite as good as the previous issue, this is an installment that puts Kamala on a better stage to move forward and represent herself and interact with the rest of the Marvel Universe. Solid stuff all around with this book and a good capping moment for those that are looking at it in that way in regards to Secret Wars. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt May 14, 2015

    It is not necessarily that this is a bad issue, in fact there are a lot of redeeming factors in the end. Probably the most evident is that it mostly avoids the cliched plot for a lot of action and ends up being an entertaining way to save a disappointing story arc. It is also evidence of thee high standard which this series has set for itself, as the slightest return to cliched storytelling results in a story which is evidently lesser than what has come before. There were a few revelations in this issue to suggest that there are better things to come in this series, but for the time being this story arc was a bit of fluff in the mix of what has been a fresh take on the superhero genre.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 16, 2015

    The current Ms. Marvel storyline has been one of my absolute favorites from this still young series, but unfortunately, it doesn't quite stick the landing. This is still a very good issue, and Kamala remains one of my favorite new characters in comics, but there's just something I don't like when conventional superheroics intrude on the much more interesting personal story of Kamala Khan.

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon May 19, 2015

    Takeshi Miyazawa concludes his short stint on Ms. Marvel and his work stands on his own. He provides excellent figure work and action. His biggest weakness is the interior of New Attilan. This new environment should feel alive with imaginative possibility, but the backgrounds will instead fade into a boring solid wall of colour. The Inhumans are Jack Kirby creations! Wheres the wonder and excitement? Its a minor sore point, because Ms. Marvel #15 is still a wonderful teen adventure title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 15, 2015

    The one rough part of the book is Lineage, who feels a little too mustache-twirling for my tastes. I know that the character wasn't initially created by Wilson but, given time, I'm sure she'll be able to temper the character a bit. For the moment, he seems to be around only because of his ability to drop a very special hint about Kamala and her family. It's a good thread to leave dangling, though, and hopefully we'll get to see just where Wilson's going to take it before too long. All in all, though, this is another solid issue of "Ms. Marvel" and there's a lot being readied just in the wings. Once again, I'm already eager to see what happens next. Read Full Review
