Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! If Kamala can stop fan-girling out about meeting her favorite super hero, that is. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity — by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. Kamala bands together with some unlikely heroes to stop the maniacal villain before he does real damage, but has she taken on more than she can handle? And how much longer can Ms. Marvel’s life take over Kamala Khan’s? Kamala Khan continues to prove why she’s the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is!
This one was so much fun! I was laughing out loud when Kamala met Wolverine and when she met Lockjaw. Lockjaw is pretty amazing I must add. Kamala is such a fun teen. The villain in this story is pretty epic as well (“I’m not a bird!”- you will laugh later). It was just an all around treat to read this one. I am not sure if it is because I am now familiar with Kamala or with graphic novels in general, or if it is because of the old faces (Wolverine) or the new faces (Lockjaw), but I enjoyed this one so much more than the first one!
One of the things I don’t think I mentioned in my review of the first volume (here) was the little aspects of Kamala’s Muslim life that the author generously explained for the reader.
Can you see the little box in the lower right hand corner? I liked getting a little culture lesson as I read.
I really can’t wait to read the next volume. I have a little vacation time coming up so I know what I will be doing!
