    If you're confused, this issue will make it clear: Kamala Khan's Ms Marvel is the successor to the original Ditko/Lee Spider-Man stories. Read Full Review

    A worthy conclusion to an intense story arc proving once and for all not everyone is capable of upholding the law while also protecting those that cannot protect themselves. Read Full Review

    The story arc "Mecca" has been one of my favorite arcs so far. Beautifully written and drawn, the arc concludes with Kamala learning that she didn't know the hearts and motives of the people around her. Though this has been considered a highly political comic book by addressing many social prejudices and injustices, Wilson has done a phenomenal job in keeping the story tasteful while driving home important universal truths.

    This was a really great fight issue of Ms. Marvel, but I don't think this storyline called for just a standard hero/villain fight in the end. I wish the creative team had dug deeper and delivered a more nuanced and emotional finale. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #22 was a bit of a letdown as the conclusion to an otherwise great arc. The issue focuses too much on Lockdown and the community, and not enough on the emotionally driven rivalry between Kamala and Josh. Read Full Review

    One of the strongest arcs for Kamala comes to a close when Discord and Ms Marvel discover each others true identities and Lockdown is turned against by her supporters. There are so many story moments that made this a such a great entry. Seeing Kamala reach her limitations actually had me concerned. Seeing her saved by an old friend was an amazing and unexpected moment. The themes that have been building in this arc on why good people fallowing bad ideals is somewhat shown through Becky (Lockdown). It is more so seen in Josh (Discord) who shows that he fights to belong and to protect his new tribe, but does not do so out of hate. It tries to explain that our enemies are not always evil. They are people whose beliefs create a toxic image of o more

    Great work by Willow Wilson addressing topics nobody is approaching in the medium right now. The art was good but i miss the old style so much.

    Basic Becky gets her comeuppance, but it's a bittersweet win for Kamala. While she does plenty to save the day, I love that this script also has space for a lot of other people to contribute to the victory: A superpowered buddy whose return is very welcome, the citizens of Jersey City led by Tyesha and Nakia, and the proper authorities in the form of the mayor and the cops. Kamala's mood lends the conclusion a sad air, but it's eminently justified and it points to more dramatic developments in the future. Marco Failla's art is ambitious and almost entirely successful, and Ian Herring is as always the double-secret MVP keeping Ms. Marvel consistent with his richly nuanced colors.

    All in all this was a pretty solid issue. I'm glad that Kamala is now (hopefully) going back to a more uplifting life after the events of this arc are finally done!

    Kind of a flat ending but it served as a logical conclusion. The overall arc was fantastic - and I will say it again: we don't see so many of the elements of this story anywhere else in comics.
