Marvel’s shapeshifting Muslim superhero scores her own live-action TV show.

Embiggen! Marvel Comics' Pakistani American teenage crimefighter named Kamala Khan is primed for the limelight with the character's live-action TV debut, Ms. Marvel, arriving this week.

Most viewers outside the comic book realm won't be familiar with Ms. Marvel as she first appeared in the pages of Captain Marvel #14 in August 2013. Created by Marvel editor Sana Amanat, writer G. Willow Wilson, and artists Adrain Alphona and Jamie McKelvie, the 16-year-old Pakistani-American is a superhero mega-fan living in Jersey City, New Jersey whose ultimate hero is Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.

As in most adaptations, there will be some cosmic reimaginings of the character's origin story in her leap into the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four, most notably the fact that her powers will now stem from a Kree-like mystic bracelet that bathes her body in a purple glow and delivers energy manipulation skills. Let's soar into all the details of how Ms. Marvel hopes to capture the hearts of MCU fans when it premieres.
