So a new inhuman can predict the future. Captain Marvel takes advantage of this power. She hired cadets and Ms. Marvel to detain people before they commit crimes. Kamala was cool with it at first. She started to get second thoughts when they detained her friend Josh. Bruno and her other friends went down there to get answers. Bruno caused another explosion springing his friend loose. The close blast left him with burns, no use of his left dominant hand, and in a coma. This woke up Kamala. She took on her cadet associate Becky. She tried to work with the Ninja Syndicates leader to prove that predictive justice is wrong. She couldn't get her point across right to Captain Marvel. She ended up hurting and betraying Carol Danver's trust. To make matters worse, she brought Ironman into the mix. At least Kamala still has the support of one of her super hero parents.
The whole experience broke up Kamala and Bruno's relationship. He's going to go to school in Wakanda. After losing her Mentor and best friend, Kamala had to escape to Karachi for a while. She even did some vigilance while there. Even though it got in the way of Karachi's hero Red Dagger.
So she must figure out her place, like all good teen wagers, plus her powers, and her culture. You see, her family is Pakistani, and she is Muslim, so there are some fascinating variables. And she lives in the super hero hot spot of....... Jersey City.
I find the plots very realistic, relationships with friends and family, mentors, all messy at times and evolving. The character is not only one you could meet in real life, but one you would want to meet. I mean, how can you not like a girl who gets kerfufffled by a philosophy class where you talk about the greater good, sacrificing one to save many. Or this issue, where a squad is formed to combat predictive crime, stopping criminals before the crime happens. But can we really detain people before they actually become a criminal? Is it profiling in a way? Hmmm, might have some current pertinence......
7 - Kamala and Miles Morales are in competing schools in a high school science fair. Baboom happens, so Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, and Nova deal with the situation.
8-11 - Civil War II crossover - Captain Marvel gives Ms. Marvel a job to do for the Captain's Minority-Report-style pre-crime-fighting: she puts her in charge of her own pre-crime task force. At first, she's overjoyed to be helping her idol, but then she starts seeing the results. Her path is parallel to Peter Parker's in the first Civil War.
12 - Kamala spends an issue in Pakistan to re-think her life.
You don't have to read Civil War II to understand what's going on in this book (my favorite type of crossover!) In my opinion, you should start reading Ms. Marvel from the beginning, though Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel Graphic Novels)
Do trade paperbacks have variant covers? Mine is a modified version of this:
Ms Marvel #9 Comic Book
Not this: Ms Marvel #7 Volume 4 Cover A
Sometimes an event can temporarily derail a series, but I think G.W. Wilson did a good job of incorporating the event into the story she was already telling.
As noted by another reviewer, Kamala doesn't interact with Spider-Man and Nova in the actual Civil War II story, at least not in this book
I can accept captain marvel making the authoritatian choices she did, but I was relieved to see Kamala stand up to her hero and do what was right.
