    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Jul 20, 2017

    Lockdown and Discord are such great villains, perfectly suited to Kamala's fighting style and a great reflection of the ills that plague us, the conviction that we know best how to make the world a better place — to hell with the people who live in that world. Also, they have perfect names. And Becky's little freckled face… so punchable. By the end of the issue, Kamala is right where the bad guys want her, trapped between giving her self up to save her family and doing the right thing. Next issue, she figured out a solution. Let's see what it is. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel seems to be digging in pretty deep with their political allegory story, and I quite enjoy it. Read Full Review

    G. Willow Wilson captures the struggle Muslims face every day in the wake of terrorist attacks, by having Aamir explain how he (and people of his faith and culture) had to go out of his way daily to not feed into the preconceived stereotypes that people have of him and his family. Aamir addresses the micro racism that he faces daily, as well as the fear he constantly has of being arrested as a terrorist due to profiling. Frustratingly enough, even Ms. Marvel's attempt to reason with her community, that she has helped protect, refuse to listen due to their prejudices.

    Ms. Marvel #20 is a solid set-up issue for what's becoming a strong character-driven story arc. Read Full Review

    A really solid, standard Ms. Marvel issue (and I definitely mean that as a compliment)! While I'm starting to brace myself as I have a feeling I really am not going to like who the new villain is when they are finally unmasked, I am rather pleased with how this story is going so far. Definitely check it out!

    There is an obvious parallel in this arc with what has been happening in the states. It is a bit uncommon for Ms Marvel to reflect current social issues so strongly, but not unwelcome. Wilson has always made Jersey City an important part of the Kamala tales and here we see the city turn against her as they see her as a threat that invites trouble. A new mayor that uses her as a scapegoat keeps the people afraid of threats that do not yet exist. Meanwhile the new villains, Lockdown and Discord are trying to hurt the ones that Kamala feels for most. There is a nice little monologue from Kamala's brother about why terrorist are not representative of an entire culture and how they are made from extreme circumstances. This has been a strong series that continues to try and educate us on social issues while still being fun and that makes this a series I have appreciated.

    A unique perspective in comics today, with an original story line. One of the must-read books out there right now.

    One of the most consistently good titles out there. The current storyline is basically a Secret Empire tie-in, without making a big thing of it. It addresses the themes of that title in a way that totally fit within Ms Marvel. Lovely writing.

    Propaganda at it's finest. You can see the political agenda flowing through the cracks of it. If more people read this it would get obliterated with negative reviews. This series isn't what it used to be when the character first debuted. Kamala Khan's title is now only used as to express writer's beliefs which are unsettle and hit you over the head.
