Review:

Wolverine! Yay!! We meet the Wolverine in this one! Like I mentioned in the previous review, Ms. Marvel is my first comic book in the Marvel Universe. So I was super excited to see him!

Their interactions with each other is hilarious! He makes a cameo in the first half of this volume and helps out Kamala in her mission. He is funny in the I’m not trying to be funny kind of way.  Love it!

Thanks to Wolverine, we meet this weird red headed lady who is beautiful! I have no idea who she is, but please don’t attack me since I REPEAT, this is my first book in the marvel universe!!

Also, we get the cute doggy!!! Pictured above!! I love him soo much! Captain America shows up for a few pages as well. Basically, this volume acts as a formal introduction into the superhero universe. Where the first volume, was an introduction to Kamala herself.

The last volume left me excited for the sequel. However, this volume left me excited for the entire series. I really wasn’t planning on reading more than two volumes, but this one secured my interest for wanting more!

  1. How can this be your first Marvel comic book yet you know or have such favor for Wolverine?…or is your interest in him from Hugh Jackman’s portrayal in the movies?

    And, when did a new Ms. Marvel begin? I guess I need to look into this. Captain Marvel keeps changing. I never know when the hero is a he or she, blonde or brunette, black or white. Now, she looks like a brown-haired Muslim from Jersey? in a blend of Ms. Marvel’s original scarf and Warbird’s lightning bolt costume.

    Wait, this is a MANGA? Sooo, someone created a new Ms. Marvel for the Far East?

    The oh-so-lovely queen of the Inhumans is one of my favorite Marvel women, Medusa. I can’t say I’ve read or seen much of her in the comics, but I think she’s a cool character with potential, just like Marionette of the Micronauts (though I read more of her 80s stories) and Hepzibah of the Star Jammers.

    If you’re not crazy about the drawing style, blame it on the manga. Unless you prefer the more common manga style with bigger eyes, smaller other facial features and text bubbles dominating the frames. From what I see here, this looks more like a normal comic book with a few manga touches. It lacks some of the more intricate comic book technique and artistry, replaced with more comical touches that remind of me anime like Sailor Moon.

    Is she turning from blonde to brunette or just experiencing an identity crisis?…somehow absorbing/phasing through the previous Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers?

    And, this Ms Marvel has more Super Skrull powers? Able to stretch like Mr. Fantastic and make herself bigger like Giant/Ant Man?

    1. Hey!
      First of all, I love your comment. Its the longest one I’ve ever gotten! Which I love 😀 I will try my best to answer as much as I can.
      Here we go.

      Most of my background for Wolverine is based on the movies. However, my opinion here is from what I just read. His character in this comic book won me over instantly. You know how sometimes characters just make you love them by one word, thats what happened here. I was also excited to see other characters from the universe interacting in this one, since this is one of my tropes.

      I think this version of Ms Marvel started around 2014ish. Yes, this version of Ms Marvel is an awesome, ass kicking brown muslim. Which is absolutely brilliant and much needed. Like hello, not all superheroes are white, right? Her costume is a blend of old ones to kind of represent the other Ms Marvels/Captain Marvels out there since they are kind of one and the same.

      No this is not a manga. Why would you think so?

      I’m guessing the queen of the Inhumans is the redheaded woman in the cover. I don’t know much about her or Marionette of the Micronauts since I haven’t really gotten deep into this world yet.

      This drawing style isn’t really manga at all. Its more comic book style, but that doesn’t mean I still like it… 😅 I’m just not a fan of the over exaggerated facial expressions or the lack of..

      Ms. Marvel has the ability to shape shift. So we see her in many forms over the progress of the plot.

      And yes, she can shrink, grow and stretch.

      Phew! I hope I answered everything! I hope to discuss similar topics with you in the future ^^

      1. How long have you been blogging here? How often do you get comments?

        I tend to write long comments when there is much to digest/read. When I comment on a picture or poem, I usually write less.

        I thought so; I had a hunch you were young…younger than your profile picture of the blonde woman with oversized glasses and a big bow in her hair.

        Your tropes? What is a trope, and what are YOUR tropes?

        I sure hope there’s an explanation for Ms Marvel becoming young and Muslim, though. And, I am still unsure if this is THE Captain Marvel Ms Marvel or the Mr/Ms Marvel, aka Shazam, replacement…though the costume sure resembles the Carol Danvers character. Sure, the super hero universes might need more ethnic characters. But, turning a character into some other ethnicity just to get more “color” in the universe isn’t the solution. There has to be a story and explanation. We can’t just go throwing powers and costumes around. She could have been a Marvel without being Ms Marvel/Carol Danvers’ replacement. She could be a Miss Fantastic without joining the Fantastic Four. She could be a She-Hulk or Thing and not necessarily be green or orange. It smells like a Disney thing to turn a character from one artist’s vision into their own mutated version, instead of making new characters under the Marvel umbrella. Disney seems to like bending other talents’ work. And, I don’t normally like that.

        If I may offer an explanation to superheroes being “all white,” “white” is not necessarily the same nationality. Whites come in a variety of nations; even people from Africa can be white…like South African beauties like Charlize Theron. I used to think all Spanish people had to have tan skin and dark hair until I met a gal from Catalan and another from Madrid who were pale and blonde-haired. Who knew. I think one reason superheroes have been “white” is because most were designed in the USA where people were free to think up such things without losing their lives or starting a war. If other nations had the same freedom to use their minds and creativity, they might think up heroes to deal with their warring nations and such. But, that would likely incite riots and wars, these days. So, it’s up to “white” Americans to make ethnic heroes? That might take some adjusting of thinking. It’ll take time. Just as I would not expect a “brown Muslim” to design a white superhero unless they were trying to emulate the Americans. At the same time, I don’t expect a “brown Muslim” to make a Muslim superhero because they probably don’t enjoy or feel capable of thinking of themselves as heroes; they’re just surviving their environment.

        I also think being “white” might be some kind of alien supremacy factor. “White” people are often “mutts,” nationality mixes. Maybe if you combine all the nationalities, you get “white.” Maybe white is a homogenous nationality. I think of those Dragon Ball characters that all look alike and turn alike when they become “super Sayan” or however you spell that. They turn blond and blue-eyed? So, if those “supers” are all blond and blue-eyed, could that be a gene-type? Could that be some cosmic decision to make those with super powers have some similarity?…like I tend to imagine the Greek gods had some similarity of physique to identify them. I think gods became known to each people by taking common form. Greek gods don’t include an elephant with 6 or 8 arms like that Hindu god. And, Hindu gods don’t seem to include buff powerhouses with spears, lightning bolts, wreaths on heads, and wavy gray beards.

        I thought this might be a manga because the drawing style looked more youthful than what I’d classify as professional, maybe to appeal more to younger readers. I’m used to the more edgy, airbrushed and–sadly–over-sex-ified heroes of the late 90s and early 2000s, though my first comics were from the pre-airbrush days of the 70s and 80s, when artists still used half-tones and simple colors. I also might have mistook a mention of manga somewhere on the page/screen/blog for saying all posts about comics were of the manga variety.

        I DID say she was the queen, Medusa, queen of the Inhumans. Though, I didn’t know she was the queen until I saw her in a Fantastic Four cartoon which took place in their secret HQ/kingdom. Before that, she was a thief-ish character seen with the Wizard, and she just looked cool swinging around by her exquisite red hair. Her masked looks appeal to my female character/costume interests.

        Micronauts, as far as I know, was a short-lived series of the early 1980s which made appearances in other Marvel comics, like X-Men. In that old series, there was a blonde warrior maiden named Marionette, similar to Zealot from Jim Lee’s WildCATS, who wore a rather exotic striped costume and painted the skin around her eyes red to match her lipstick, which was a fairly popular Marvel look back then and possibly a touch of the old rock band KISS which was still big back then.

        The Ms Marvel I know pretty much was limited to the typical superhero powers; she could fly and had super strength. She was Superman without his freezing breath, heat vision and X-ray vision. But, Super Skrull could have multiple powers, like stretching. And, Mr Fantastic is the only stretching character I know of the Marvel universe, while DC had Plastic Man and maybe a few others, including one in that Legionaires or whatever they are. The Ms Marvel I know had some of her original power stolen by Rogue from the X-Men before becoming a slightly different heroine named Binary, who had flaming hair for a while…and then somehow became Warbird who resembled her previous self. And then, she got mixed up with alcohol and Iron Man, like a few other favorite heroines I know. [I should be okay with that because Iron Man was one of my first favorite heroes who I can’t classify as super.]
