MS. MARVEL Star Iman Vellani To Co-Write MS. MARVEL: THE NEW MUTANT Comic Series

Kamala Khan may have sacrificed her life to save the universe earlier this year in Amazing Spider-Man #26, but nobody really expected her to stay dead, and we now have confirmation that the character will return in a brand-new Marvel Comics series... which will be co-written my Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani!

Khan was revealed to be a mutant in the season finale of the Disney+ series, and, as many suspected, it looks like the hero is going to be resurrected on the page as one of the Children of the Atom in Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant.

Vellani will pen the series with Ms. Marvel TV writer Sabir Pirzada, with artwork by Carlos Gomez and Adam Gorham, and Sara Pichelli providing the main covers.

"This was way scarier than joining the MCU for me," Vellani tells EW. "Those projects feel like they live in their own dimension, so I guess I can separate myself easier. But you can hold a comic book! I've never written anything before in my entire life, but I have read many comics, so I just wrote what I would want to read. I was given a very professional tool to write what is essentially my own fan fiction."

Despite the title, Vellani insists that the new comic won't retcon Kamala's Inhuman heritage.

"I want to make it very, very clear that we are not reconning her Inhuman origin. That's a part of Kamala's identity that Marvel editorial and myself would very much like to keep and protect," Vellani says. "Our book will absolutely reflect all those core themes of identity that the Ms. Marvel comics have consistently explored — only now there's a whole new label that Kamala has to learn to accept. It's going to be pretty crazy."

...remember when comic writers wrote comics?

Yeah. Good times.

So she's not dead? I don't follow the comics...

@WhatIfRickJames - The X-Men have a resurrection process so no one dies
clintthahamster - 7/14/2023, 10:37 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - She was "Wolverine" dead, not "Uncle Ben" dead.

@ClintThaHamster - and both those are fake dead cause they aren't real so resurrection and death and can happen as many times as the imagination can carry.

@Radders - They're too busy not reading the comics but having "informed" opinions. I'm just starting Dawn of X now!

@WhatIfRickJames - Nobody dies in comics except for Gwen Stacy and Karen Page.

Scarf is cool, but did anyone tell her that's a choke hazard?
Origame - 7/14/2023, 11:06 AM
@UniqNo - she didn't understand the point when Edna said "no capes".

@UniqNo - She likes that tho…
SolarSoldier - 7/15/2023, 11:19 AM
@Deklipz - This is literally why comic nerds are lamabasted in the media. Weirdos like you. It's a hijab that she wears around her neck. She's literally a child. But yes, "she likes being choked." This is why weirdos like Gunn got fired in the first place.

I'm happy that someone that seems excited gets a shot to make comics. I don't know the character very well but I know she was an inhuman. Any actual reason she's a mutant now beyond synergy? (Please please don't be synergy)

@oldnoname - She was originally intended to be a mutant, but back in the dark ages when Perlmutter was in charge, he wanted something to compete with Fox's X-Men. Which was pretty much the reason for the big push on Inhumans some years ago.
oldnoname - 7/14/2023, 10:33 AM
@RitoRevolto - Ohh ok that tracks, thanks. I remember that push for inhumans back then and the subsequent erasure of mutants and the fantastic four

I’m not mad at all about the change. She was originally suppose to be a mutant but they made the creator change her to inhuman.
