Marvel; $3.99

What should be a happy time for Kamala Khan and her family quickly turns quite sinister once the “Keepers of Integration, Normalization and Deference agency” (or KIND) show up in their neighborhood looking for “unregistered superpowers.” While Kamala quickly figures out what’s going on, she’s somewhat powerless to stop it – and she comes to another realization about some of the people she’s been fighting to protect.

This issue of Ms. Marvel contains a lot of biting political commentary, which might turn some people off, though I thought it to be particularly poignant. The cultural background provided for the Muslim holiday that serves as the framing for this issue, Eid Al-Adha, gives what happens a bit more weight as well. Ms. Marvel continues to be one of the most brilliant books in Marvel’s lineup and this story arc is sure to be a doozy.
