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.
