    I could find nothing wrong with this issue. As mentioned above, the best issues include all of the things and people who make Kamala great, and this one had them all. I was happy to see Nakia as she is someone I'd forgotten about until she popped up at the end of the last arc pre-Secret Wars. It's interesting to see her involved in a case Kamala is actively investigating. Read Full Review

    MS. MARVEL has been a hot streak since the "Last Days" arc, and it only continues here as issue two is another spectacular book. The plot, characterization, and art are all superb, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Dec 18, 2015

    And that's what Ms. Marvel does best: we've been given a superhero with actual relatable problems. Actual relatable issues that we may be seeing in our neighborhoods and communities. The way the story was able to switch from what I was hoping wasn't possible harassment of Tyesha to effortlessly back to the topic of gentrification and how it was continuing to plague where Kamala calls home done quite well. Pair that with all the small problems on her plate and a fun art style that carries the story along, it works. It works in this renumbering of the issues in the series where we have a fresh-faced Super herowho we still love and are still excited to see. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Eve Dec 27, 2015

    Wilson takes what could have been a bad start for a new volume with the awkwardSecret Wars time-skip and turns it into a strength, letting the characters speak for themselves to fill us in as to what we've missed. Paired with a main character who, as always, is a person first and a superhero second, a host of interesting and relatable problems reflective of our own world, and a new, bigger, more threatening villain, Ms. Marvel #2 delivers yet another engaging and enjoyable read that leaves us wanting more as we turn the last page.

    Ms. Marvel is avoiding any kind of sophomore slump by further pushing what made the book so great in the first place. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 19, 2015

    If Secret Wars accomplished anything, it definitely feels like a lot of my favorite series are refocused and rejuvenated. Ms. Marvel used the 8-month time jump to put a lot of new and fascinating wrinkles in the life of Kamala Khan, and Wilson continues to execute them expertly. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 21, 2015

    "Ms. Marvel" #2 is another installment of a series that didn't just come back the same, but rather stronger than ever. This is still one of the gems in Marvel's line-up, and -- if you aren't reading it yet -- this is a good a place as any to leap on board. Just be warned: as soon as you finish reading "Ms. Marvel" #2, you'll want to start it again. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Dec 22, 2015

    Its understandable to be weary that the relaunch might have somehow decreased the quality of Ms. Marvel, but that certainly hasnt been the case with this book. In fact, if such a thing were possible, its actually becoming even better than the previous run thanks to the strong consistency on art and the script from Wilson that puts characters over the action to great effect. The pencils and colours from Takeshi Miyazawa & Ian Herring respectively also adds another layer of excellence to the book that continues to be a standout in Marvels current crop of recent relaunches.

    Liked the issue, but as good as the story is, it's still rather stale, derived from typical Marvel formula.

    Kamala has been unjustly portrayed as the poster child of a nefarious real estate company and our young Ms. Marvel is not happy about that. And her troubles do not end there, she doesn’t know where she stands with Bruno anymore. G. Willow Wilson’s excellent script wins our hearts again. She brings yet another new character in the series, and while doing, attempts to shatter our prejudices about such people. And it’s quite nicely handled. I thought I would miss Adrian Alphona’s adorable art (I did an AAAA there!) but Takeshi Miyazawa is doing such an excellent job, it’s hard not to be satisfied. The facial expressions don’t wander far away from that of the previous series, which is a relief because it was that humour that brought such a breath of fresh air during that time. Case in point : you just can’t but fall in love with Bruno’s hamster! There’s another aspect of Miyazawa’s art, it can get serious when it’s required. Ms. Marvel is an Avenger now, she’s in the big league, so does that mean she will also be getting a big league villain? The last two pages are sure to make your blood run cold.

    More street level and not as cosmic as her Avengers adventures, I'm enjoying it.

    Where as the last issue showed Kamala struggling to notice her world was changing while she acted the hero, this issue begins to see Kamala try to get back into that world. There is a good amount of action with her fight against the mysterious corporation that is using her image and the reveal was fun.

    The Villain Jun 21, 2016

    Ms Marvel continues on its hot streak with G Willow Wilson writing another interesting issue. I feel like this new series has a bit more mature themes so far with all the characters we love from the old series. The new villain is revealed in this issue and its a somewhat familiar one. There are a few really awesome reveals. Its just a consistently great book.

    I gotta agree with Joe on this one. Kind of on the stale side story wise. But that art is on point. Miyagawa knows how to draw!
