•  Kamala may be fan-girling out when her favorite (okay maybe Top Five) super hero shows up for some help, but that won't stop her from protecting her hometown.
•  Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with Kamala and all her friends? Maybe Wolvie can be of some help.
•  "If you're not reading Ms. Marvel, you're missing out on one of the best series out there." --Says Almost Everybody

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 20, 2014

    This book is like cake...except its good for you. Its like steak cake...which sounds awful, but this book is GREAT! Awful metaphors aside, this is one of the cheeriest books you could hope to read, but the cheeriness is complemented by amazing characters with realistic motivations and genuine, witty dialog. I have to give G. Willow Wilson credit for taking Wolverine, of all people, down a peg or two without completely negating the characters dignity or respectability. Though the two part ways at issues end, I would love to see an ongoing series of Wolverine tutoring Kamala in the ways of super heroism. Read Full Review

    In the end, that bond will get Kamala a gyro and the education she needs to succeed as a superhero. After all, good things come to those who wait. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Aug 20, 2014

    This is a book that everyone should be reading by now. It's a lively, welcoming foray into new superhero territory, and each issue is just plain fun to read, something notably missing from many other books. We needed this, and I for one am a proud member of the Kamala Korps. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Aug 24, 2014

    Another fantastic issue of what is truly one of the best books on the stands for kids and adults of all ages, Ms. Marvel #7 ends with a lead-out that made me squeal with glee, and I'm not even an Inhumans fan. Nevertheless, I can't wait for the next issue. Bet you feel the same. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 21, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #7 is a fantastic issue and end for this team up. The story is enjoyable, the team-up with Wolverine was great and a lot of fun, the writing was stellar, and the artwork fits the book so well. After all of this, I'm very excited to see where the comic goes from here more than ever. Read Full Review

    So, I am excited for the next issue. I can't wait to see what Kamala does with her new “pet,” though the Avengers maybe should have thought about how easy it would be for her to convince her parents she has a new bulldog. This may actually make it harder for her in the long run! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Travis Bass Aug 23, 2014

    Ms. Marvel is book that gets better with every issue. Wilson is doing something special with an offbeat title that has so far remained fairly separate from the main Marvel Universe (Wolverine guest star notwithstanding). If you want to read a fairly straightforward tale of a teenage superhero trying to find her place in the world, this is just what you are looking for. If this seems too "trite" or "gimmicky" at first glance to you, Ms. Marvel has a lot of heart behind it and you would be remiss if you didn't at least give it a look, especially this issue and the last one. I also can't fault a hero whose favorite food appears to Gyros. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Aug 25, 2014

    Wilson's "Ms. Marvel" is a classic coming of age story, but everything else about it feels unpredictable and fresh, particularly in the texture of Kamala's background and everyday life and in the charm of her personality. The ease and the sheer pleasure of "Ms. Marvel" makes it one of the best comics Marvel is putting out right now. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Vendetti Aug 25, 2014

    The artistic team has yet to falter in this series. Jacob Wyatt’s cartoonish and animated style is a seamless and welcome match for this book in anticipation of Adrian Alphona’s return. One page in particular is a standout as Wyatt depicts Kamala and Wolverine traversing the meandering sewers with an abundance of eye-catching detail along the way. Together with Ian Herring’s colors, the dungeon-like stages of this episode are brought to life, complete with Kamala’s embiggening powers. And as always, Jamie McKelvie’s covers are icing on the cake. Kamala’s fangirl grin juxtaposed with Wolverine’s surly scowl is the selfie of my dreams and fully captures the youth and heroics of this series. There are few books out there that are near-perfect from cover to cover. Everyone contributing to Ms. Marvel is doing all the right things to keep me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 21, 2014

    G. Willow Wilson exploits the dynamic between the young, starstruck Kamala and the world-weary Logan to full effect. This is a fairly lighthearted issue, all told, but it still has its fair share of emotion and heart. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Aug 22, 2014

    “Ms. Marvel” #7 doesn't have much of The Inventor and has none of the supporting cast but it's the most superhero of the series so far. It also tackles some very important issues facing a young women like Kamala. Most importantly (no spoilers) but it ties Kamala into the bigger Marvel Universe, teasing an interesting interaction for the future. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Aug 25, 2014

    Ms. Marvel's greatest strength is in the title's ability to relate. It's not a throwaway series that's meant purely to take up a few minutes of your time and a few bucks out of your wallet. Ms. Marvel registers with its readers on a level that gives it impact. It somehow flies in the face of all the things we expect mainstream comics to be while being, ironically, what comics used to be during its most well-remembered eras. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Aug 24, 2014

    Fewer adorable Kamala moments and a lack of screentime with The Inventor may make some fans worry about this issue but I think a pitch-perfect Wolverine, a strong mentor relationship, and a clear reason for this story in the grander scheme of things will leave readers thoroughly satisfied. Though all of Ms. Marvel has been pretty spectacular so far, issue #7 manages to claw its way up to the top tier. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 25, 2014

    G. Willow Wilson has clearly created something special with this hero, with her unique and kind of gross powers (even Wolverine admits that he's a little freaked out by her abilities) and unique mindset and background. My great fear with Ms. Marvel is that someone down the road is going to try to make her "cooler" by changing the nature of her powers to be less uncanny and weird, making her just another Stature or Morph. Still, that's a vague worry for another day, because Ms. Marvel #7 is still hitting all the right notes for me, with excellent writing and character, fun manga-influenced art, a judicious and thoughtful use of guest star and some perfect moments for our hero.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 17, 2014

    Guest appearances, even when well done, can be rough on new series since they change the dynamic of what we were getting. Ms. Marvel certainly suffers from that with the addition of Wolverine for awhile, even with the positive things he does bring to the table. It's an easy connection to the Inhumans that's brought into focus, which will be exploited in a fun way to come, and we get Wolverine staking her out in a way that will raise eyebrows for other heroes that are likely to come across her. The book left me underwhelmed after how the first five drew me in, even with its quirks, and Jacob Wyatt didn't grab me too much with his style compared to what we started off with either. It didn't help that he had to deal with Wolverine's awful outfit either. Read Full Review
