This March, Kamala Khan returns to Jersey City as a full-fledged member of the X-Men in the pages of Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace.
A sequel to last year’s critically acclaimed Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant limited series, the four-part comic will once again be written by Marvel Studios’ own Ms. Marvel, actress Iman Vellani, and writer Sabir Pirzada. Joining them this time around will be artist Scott Godlewski, who recently made his Marvel Comics debut in the Fall of X tie-in series Alpha Flight.
Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace sees Kamala continue to adjust to her mutant identity as she makes her way back home following her explosive first mission with the X-Men. Discovering she was a mutant during the fall of Krakoa has proven to be quite the challenge and to survive the experience, she’ll have to learn how to balance her family and friends with her new X-Men responsibilities…including singlehandedly taking down iconic X-villain Mojo!
Today, we’ve learned that the highly-anticipated debut issue will sport a stunning variant by best-selling cover artist Derrick Chew. Also available as a virgin variant cover, the piece shows Kamala rocking her new X-costume, ready to protect a world that hates and fears her.
Ms. Marvel has officially come out to the world as a mutant and a member of the X-Men…and she’s about to learn just how hard things can get for mutantkind. Kamala Khan is used to being a hometown hero – there’s no way her community would turn on her just because she’s a mutant, right? Right?!
“It’s been an absolute joy and privilege to get to co-write Ms. Marvel with Iman Vellani, who has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the voice of Ms. Marvel on the page just as much as she is on the screen,” Pirzada says of the series. “We are excited to report that Kamala’s mutant journey will continue on in Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace. It will be Kamala’s most dangerous ride yet.”
Last year, Vellani opened up on her debut as a comic book writer when she said, “The comic book process was actually pretty intimidating for me. I hold so much reverence for the creative process and the talent behind them.”
“I felt so pressured to make something good and represent Ms. Marvel in a way that was true to the path paved by G. Willow Wilson and Sana [Amanat],” the actress added. “That was kind of scary, but I had such a great co-writer, Sabir Pirzada, who also worked on the show.”
