View full history
Kamala Khan is the youngest of two children from a traditional Pakistani Family in New Jersey. Despite her traditional roots, Kamala was the typical American teenager. Wanting to be herself, but still make her family proud. For several years, Kamala was a fan of superheroes especially the Avengers and, more importantly, Carol Danvers. So much, in fact, that she started writing online fan-fiction about the Avengers and Captain Marvel. Even going as far as joining the Carol Danvers Corps online.
It was during a high school party that Kamala decided to try and fit in with the "regular crowd" that Kamala realised that it wasn't for her. She left the party abruptly and on her way home was encased by the Terrigen Mists that were released during Infinity revealing that Kamala was a descendant of the Inhumans. Encased in a cocoon, her Inhuman powers developed. Kamala was put in a dream like state where a dream avatar of Captain Marvel asked her: "Who do you want to be?" Kamala replied: "I want to be you." In doing so, she burst from the cocoon looking exactly like Carol in her old black unitard costume. After a panic, Kamala learned she had gained shape shifting powers. Able to change her appearance or parts of her body at will. She eventually changed back to her own appearance and took on the identity of the all-new, Ms. Marvel intending to be a superhero like Carol.
Powers and Abilities
Although Kamala has the same superhero alias as previously Danvers did, her powers are not similar to the blonde bombshell. Kamala is a polymorph after being exposed to the Terrigen Mist. This gives her the ability to stretch her body in almost anyway imaginable. Kamala can also increase and decrease her size to both gigantic and tiny sizes. The limits of this ability has yet to be revealed but she has grown large enough to handle a car and shrunk to the size of a cockroach. She can also selectively increase and decrease the size of any part of her body, although she prefers to increase the size of her fists. But she also uses the ability to increase the length of her legs so that she can travel great distances in a short amount of time. Kamala also has the ability to shape-shift. In theory she can look like anyone she wants, but so far she has only changed into Carol Danvers and her own mother. Kamala also has healing abilities since she has been shot in the stomach but was able to heal over the wound when she transformed back to her original form. She cannot transform again until the healing process is complete.
