Ms. Marvel

Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) may be the only comic book I have ever read which explores the experiences of growing up as a second gen immigrant in America. Her friends, her family, her heroes, her hometown, her mosque, and her parents’ homeland, each of these is a unique source of struggles and support shaping Ms. Marvel’s identity as she tackles anything from (word for phenomenon of baby boomers blaming everything on millennials and its effects on youth mental health) to gentrification, to criminal profiling, to unjust use of lethal force.
