    Project Fandom - Nina Perez Feb 16, 2016

    Give this book to anyone who thinks comic books aren't for girls or women. Give this book to anyone who doesn't understand that representation matters. Give this book to anyone who fails to understand that Muslims want the same things we all want for our families - unfortunately, those people exist. Read Full Review

    MS. MARVEL #4 is not only another strong entry in the series, it just might be the best one yet. I would strongly recommend this issue to anyone who likes comics. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Feb 12, 2016

    The new artist for this story arc, Nico Leon, is more than up to the task of Wilson's varied scripts. Ms. Marvel needs an artist who has the full Masamune Shirow range, from chibi to dead serious. Leon delivers. Each page meets the emotion the scene needs, silly or severe or sanguine. Down to the panel, Ms. Marvel raises the bar on superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 13, 2016

    For the first time since it was announced, I finally understand what the writers are hoping to accomplish by making Ms. Marvel an Avenger. Her spot on the roster likely has a lot to do with her popularity from a business sense, but in the context of Marvel stories, G. Willow Wilson finally nails it. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #4 is another excellent issue of family dynamics and goofy superhero scenarios. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Feb 15, 2016

    With pitch-perfect pacing, G. Willow Wilson brings us back to the heart of this series. The metaphor she's playing with is wonderful and the supporting cast may never have been better, at least not all at once. Nico Leon joins the club of Ms. Marvel artists and finds a comfortable place between Miyazawa and Alphona while delivering a confident and attractive look for the series. Its biggest problem is that it doesn't do any one thing spectacularly, but its strength is that it does everything well. If, for any reason that defies explanation, you're not already reading Ms. Marvel, this is a perfect place to jump on and a brilliant encapsulation of why you should. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 15, 2016

    So far, Kamala's new status as an Avenger hasn't added much to her character. With the exception of Wolverine's two-issue cameo in the original ongoing series, her pre-existing social network has been much more fruitful for characterization and chemistry. I'm still not convinced Ms. Marvel needs to be on a superhero team, even though it's fun to see her in other books. That said, Avengers membership is a good launching pad for the themes about growing up, compromises and priorities that Kamala faces in "Army of One." Read Full Review

    This issue was my first foray into Ms. Marvel and I was pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable it was. The comic, just like the title's namesake, is cute, quirky and funny. The comic does a could job showing all sides of the character whether it be her as sister and daughter in a traditional Pakistani family or as an awkward high schooler or an even more awkward high schooler learning how to be a superhero on the fly. Two notes on this book- the scenes of Kamala and her family, especially when they sprinkle their conversation with Urdu,feel genuine and not forced like some comics are that have "ethnic" characters in them not written by people of the same ethnicity. Second- as far as villains are concerned, they are pretty muted, regulated to faceless characters that are not even secondary or go beyond the backdrop of a singular scene. Perhaps more will come in the next issue or so, but even with that, this superhero comic reads well without there being much super heroics in it.

    After the extremely disappointing former arc, in which Ms. Marvel fought public opinion because the general public are a bunch of morons and Hydra, who have been degraded into a vehicle for Marvel's continued pandering to the Tumblr crowd, this issue is a nice, fun little issue, that sets up a nice, fun little arc.

    Its not exactly an exciting issues because the conflict is fairly minor but Ms Marvel still continues to be the character that everyone loves. This is more of a Kamala story than a Ms Marvel story but it still appears to be a good set up for a whole new story arc.

    It is a little early yet to know what direction this is going to take but it is a little sad to see the ever-optimistic Kamala starting to get overwhelmed. If done right this could be a good start to an interesting struggle for the character.
