    Project Fandom - Nina Perez May 8, 2016

    In an issue packed with cameos, Kamala Khan learns a valuable lesson most women don't learn until much later in life: You cannot be all things to all people, nor can you be everywhere at once. It's okay to say no and ask for help. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain May 2, 2016

    A particular scene of a news reporter on camera being filmed near the action was a perfect setup for the upcoming Civil War storyline event: a local woman grabs the news reporter's microphone and hollers a bit about superheroes being unsafe and making her home turfunsafe. And while it's safe to assume that everyone in town doesn't hold the same attitude towards Ms. Marvel, it's definitely a growing concern for civilianseverywhere and an attitude that I'm sure will show itself again very soon. The panels of Captain Marvel and Iron Man going all SUPER SUPPORTIVE AND MOM/DAD-LIKE WITHOUT THE JOKES ARE GRAND. Issue #6 is an issue of Ms. Marvel that is in a class of its own. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng May 2, 2016

    The various morals of "Army of One" are all forgone conclusions, obvious from the start -- make sure to prioritize the things that really matter and don't be afraid to ask for help -- but it's characteristic of Wilson's writing style that she doesn't want to leave these points unsaid. It's like she doesn't want any readers to get away with missing the message. It's too much hand-holding, but -- sappy as it is -- Kamala's explicit realization about home manages to evoke an emotional response anyway. Wilson's sincerity and light touch are able to make mundane Hallmark-like sentiments feel meaningful again. Read Full Review

    Kamala Khan is one of the most important things to happen to comics in quite some time, and Ms. Marvel bears that responsibility with grace. Read Full Review

    As usual, MS. MARVEL #6 comes with the highest recommendation that I can provide. It's a smart, sweet issue that doesn't take itself too seriously, but never feels like self-parody. Plus, it has some great pre-CIVIL WAR II interactions to boot. Honestly, I'm not sure what more a potential reader could want. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Apr 28, 2016

    Wilson shows Kamala is a hero because of, not in spite of, her inability to do it all and Ms. Marvel inspires the next generation to be everyday heroes by caring for their communities. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 30, 2016

    All of that craziness led to some really wonderful scenes between Kamala, Captain Marvel, Iron Man and her family. She learned some very important life lessons, and I'm a sucker for that sort of character development, even when there are also dinosaurs on the page. This was a big issue for Kamala, and Wilson made the absolute most of it! Read Full Review

    This is the kind of well done simplicity that make certain superheroes universally beloved. Read Full Review
