In Ms. Marvel's season 1 finale, Marvel Studios delivered one of its biggest Multiverse Saga surprises yet by revealing that Kamala Khan is a mutant. The scene was punctuated by the X-Men: The Animated Series theme, suggesting a variation of that will be used for the MCU's X-Men. 

We're likely still a long way off from seeing them in action (Earth-616's version of the team probably won't appear until after Avengers: Secret Wars) but Marvel Comics has recently embraced Ms. Marvel's mutant status.

Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani is set to co-write the Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant comic book and recently showed up at Fan Expo Canada in Jubilee cosplay! It's an impressive take on the beloved character and one that suggests she's a big fan of Jubilation Lee.

"[Ms. Marvel being a mutant] raises a million thoughts, feelings, concerns for Kamala internally, and she's like, 'How can I possibly deal with this new thing while all the mutants are literally dying in front of me?!" Vellani recently told Marvel.com"She is thrown headfirst into what it means to be an X-Men at the Gala, and so she has no time to process any of this."

"So our series will pick up ten weeks after her death and, at this point, her friends and family—who all attended her funeral—their memories are wiped by the Miss Emma Frost, because that's a lot to deal with. Kamala is just very alone at the start of the series."

"She doesn't want to bring her problems to the X-Men, because who wants to deal with a 16-year -old kid having a recurring nightmare, which is where we start the issue off?" the actress continues. "So she's dealing with a lot of the psychological aftermath of being resurrected and having to acclimate to these new colors that she's wearing, the new life that she's been given. It's a lot, and she just needs someone to tell."

There's still no word on plans for Ms. Marvel season 2, though we will see Vellani reprise the role in The Marvels this November alongside Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris' Photon.

What do you think about the MCU star's take on Jubilee?

@TheShape9859 - She'll most definitely be the jubilee-type of character in the mcu x-men.

@Fogs - that's exactly what they're going to do

@IronMan616 - They’re essentially reruns, why would you expect them to do big numbers? 🤨

@IronMan616 - most people very interested in the show would have already watched it. You’re comparing a show’s first airing with a re-run lol

@PlusUltra - Yeah, I'm sure Disney wanted these numbers. Nobody watched on D+, they dropped this turd on free tv and still nobody's watching.

@CryinFist - See my previous comment, terrible numbers on D+, they drop this on free tv to drum up some hype for the Marvels and still nobody watched.

@PlusUltra - so it did poorly on streaming and then poorly on tv. 0-2

This is one of the reasons I do like Ms. Vellani. She is a true, die-hard Marvel comic book geek. Not something other actors that play in the Marvel Universe can say.

@Mugens - Keven Feige literally had never looked at a comic book until he got the job from Donner on the Xmen movie.

Admittedly, I like her passion. Wish they'd hire writers that cared this much.

@KaptainKhaos - Yes, she is awesome but I don't think its her I think its the character. There is a lot of racism and hate in this world.

She's a really cool girl.

She won me with that statement about the Captain Marvel movie. Lol

This girl deserves a good second season that makes justice to her performance. I'm not seeing The Marvels doing that.

@MadThanos - I reckon she’ll still be the standout of The Marvels though.

@MadThanos - Or maybe just keep her in the movies. She could be the new Captain Marvel! Or the Jubilee/Kitty Pryde/Iceman character in the X-Men like others are saying.
