Dunno why but I dislike the costume, but I have to say I might give this a go.

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Edited by millennium

the arts not bad but i just dont know where their going to take this "new" character after all marvel's having a hard enough time trying to make captain marvel into a "main event player" for the company so i dont see this character going anywhere and i see this book getting caned in less than a year sorry

Art looks wonderful. Not totally loving the costume though. Definitely will give this a go though.

Edited by longbowhunter

Awesome art, love the Art Adams cover too.

I love the art

I think the costume is pretty good, but could be tweaked a bit. Maybe get rid of the shoulder bits, have that golden bracelet thing on both wrists for balance (though they'll probably explain why she has the one in the issue) and change the hair a bit cause right now it looks kind of boxy and weird like Tea from yu-gi-oh! I'll check out this series though.

Looks funny, but ms.Khan is not ms.Marvel.

Posted by ganthet2814

So is the mist thing the Inhumans released on earth going to make superheroes pop out of the wood work everywhere? Cool idea I suppose but really don't a crap ton of new Supers cropping up.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

That art alone makes me want to buy this book. And it seems like this new Ms. Marvel is inhuman? I think Awesome Sauce!

Awesome costume, love how it's not an overly sexualized swimsuit

Posted by sora_thekey

No. No. No! NO! Why is the art so great, I didn't want to read this book. I wasn't interested... Now they show me that amazing art...

Where's my wallet?!

That is some great looking art that seems to create a fantastic vibe.

Yeah, I'm still upset about Ms. Marvel losing her name.

It will take me awhile to forgive this new character for "stealing it".

Don't see it lasting that long

She's already stopped calling herself Ms Marvel before this one showed up

Plus I'm sure she'll have Carol's blessing.

This series looks interesting.

I'm happy they are expanding, especially because female Muslims need better representation in society. I just wish they would use a different name because, when I heard a new book called Ms. Marvel was coming out I thought that meant Carol Danvers was taking the name back, and now that there is a new Ms. marvel that is less likely to happen. I say this because I want Billy Batson to go back to having that name. I know it sounds like I'm being whiny and over reacting about a name, but I really do have a problem with that. Plus I honestly don't think Marvel needs to take that name, they are the #1 comic company in the world so they can do without. Again, I have no problem with Carol or Kamala, like I said I support the inclusion of diversity in comics and Kamala seems like a great new character, but I don't like that it comes at a cost. I just want them to change the names, that's all.

I think I'l give it a try

I'm excited for this series!!!!!

DC dropped the ball with Simon Baz -_-

All New Marvel Now is gonna drive me to bankruptcy!

Edited by 2cool4fun

I'd say I'm excited...but i have no effing clue who this is...oh well at least now i know why Marvel was so quick to rename the original Ms. Marvel into Captain Marvel the second DC named theirs into Shazam. But I'd still like to know what happened to Marvels original Captain Marvel

Edited by CaptainHoopla

The art is gorgeous. I hope this turns out good for everyone excited for it. Unfortunately for me, with all the other new books launching, I don't have the budget to pick this one up.

Posted by BR_Havoc

@2cool4fun: Captain Mar-Vel has been dead for about 25 years now ( he has come back a few times), They gave the mantle to Carol so she went from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel. The new book is about a young girl that idolizes Carol and when she gets super powers she takes the name Ms. Marvel.

@madeinbangladesh: I agree with that one hundred percent. John's did not even give him a story before playing the terrorist card.

Wow that art is fantastic, checking this out for sure. I find it pretty funny that people always complain about marvel and dc not taking enough chances, yet won't ever give a new character a chance.

QFT man. QFT!!!!

And then people won't buy the B-lister comics when they're ongoing *cough*Kaine*cough*

@fallschirmjager: Yeah,same thing with pretty much all female leads as well. Then they complain and wonder we have a bunch of batman books. BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE ONLY THINGS YOU'LL BUY x_x

I have little doubt Black Widow is going to last more than a year or two.

Thats not Ms Marvel..... thats like calling the person they have in Ultimate Spiderman, Spiderman.

Posted by Perfect 10

love the costume and the character of kamala. was afraid for the art cause i didnt like it in uncanny x-force but it works here for some reason. it gives the book an all age feel, not sure if that's what they are going for but they should run with it. one of the better stories in the all new marvel point one, really looking forward to seeing her journey

Posted by Maddpanda531

I'm really digging the amount of female characters being pushed by Marvel right now

Posted by Herokiller12344

Wait, why would we need a New Ms Marvel? It's not like Carol died, she just got a promotion. Oh whatever, it's not like I read this stuff anyway.

The short story in Point One was pretty good, so hopefully the series will be too. :)

So is the first issue 4.99 or 2.99? There's two different price points shown.

It seems that they may have mistakenly put the wrong barcode on a mockup of the cover, as the 02411 would be the barcode for the the 024th issue of something, with the first 1 meaning it's the main cover, and the second 1 meaning it's a first print. Not sure where that particular barcode came from though.

The 00151 on the last cover shown would probably be the 001st issue, 5th cover, 1st print, so there must be another cover apart from the ones shown above. Maybe just a black and white version of the main one.

Well damn way to make me look dumb.

Love how old-school the costume looks.

Marvel might actually have some self-selling legacy characters for once.

This is why I used quotations...because I know she obviously didn't steal it. My point is that I still wish Carol Danvers was Ms. Marvel.

Did Carol retire or something?
