Kamala Decides Whether to Side with Her Hero in ‘Ms. Marvel’ #8 [Preview]
Kamala Khan is going to have to take sides in Civil War II. In fact, I keep hearing that everyone is. The crossover is coming to Ms. Marvel's doorstep with issue #8 of her current series. The "Civil War Reenactiment" variant cover pretty clearly positions her as the Spider-Man of this version (meaning the initially naive character who switches sides), although the scene of her unmasking is presumably just a reference to that, and not something that will happen this time around.
The unlettered preview doesn't tell us much, just that Ms. Marvel visits Captain Marvel on the Alpha Flight space station. The press release teases us with whether she'll side with or against the Captain, but since we're talking about Kamala's inspiration, the reason she wanted to be a superhero in the first place, it seems pretty certain she'll ultimately side against her, since that's how drama works.
Ms. Marvel #8 is written by G. Willow Wilson, with art by Takeshi Miyazawa and Adrian Alphona. It's available June 22.
