‘Ms. Marvel’ follows Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Pakistani girl from Jersey City, who writes superhero fan-fiction and eventually becomes a superhero herself.
Khan took over the Ms. Marvel title, even though other characters have used it in the existing Marvel Universe. She became the first-ever Muslim character featured in her own comic book in 2014 and will be the first to be featured on screen, according to Marvel.
Ms. Marvel comes to Disney’s streaming platform in late 2021.
