SO YEAH...IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT I REVIEW MS. MARVEL #1, WHICH WAS A GOOD IDEA. THEN I HAD A GIANT MARGARITA AND A HALF, AND I WASN'T SO SURE. BUT. THEN. I REALIZED THAT I TEND TO NERD OUT WHEN TIPSY, SO YEAH.

FIRST: KAMALA IS GREAT. APART FROM HER POTENTIAL AS A SUPERHERO, SHE IS GREAT. I THINK US ON GT WILL GET HER REALLY WELL, SINCE WE'RE ALL WEIRDOS TO SOME DEGREE OR ANOTHER.

KAMALA IS A YOUNG MUSLIM WOMAN, AND WHILE THAT IS DEFINITELY GERMANE TO HER AND WHO SHE IS, SHE'S ALSO A VERY NORMAL TEENAGER WHO IS A NERDY OUTSIDER. SHE'S SMART AND CREATIVE, AND WANTS TO BE PART OF THINGS, MUCH LIKE I THINK MOST OF US DID AT SOME POINT. SHE'S NOT A SUCKER, BUT SHE IS A GIRL WHO HAS LIVED STEEPED IN THE RACIST, LOOKS-IST WORLD THAT WE ALL LIVE IN.

KAMALA IS UTTERLY HERSELF AND UTTERLY SOMEONE WE WOULD KNOW. ALL AT ONCE.

READ MS. MARVEL...YOU WILL GET HER IN SOME WAY, EVEN IF NOT ALL WAYS. SHE IS BOTH DIFFERENT FROM MANY OF US, AND VERY MUCH LIKE MOST OF US.
