    I want to know pretty badly where Marvel is taking this character. Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant #3 promises a lot of adventure for this hero, but I am unsure what direction Kamala is going. And I think that mystery is exciting.

    Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant #3 is a fun look into the literal mind of Kamala. The entire creative team understands this character on a deep level, evident by the care put into the more moving moments.

    The Story: A fun, funny and thrilling story from Vellani and Pirzada. The story takes some great twists and turns throughout the issue and there is a level of suspense that kept me engaged from start to finish. I enjoyed every contemplative moment from Kamala and liked seeing that Gaiha is more dangerous that I realized. The story has a great cliffhanger that makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: Gomez and Gorham deliver some fantastic art throughout the issue. I love the differing art styles and how brilliantly they complement each other.

    This limited series has not veered from being a deliberate and thoughtful examination of who Kamala is as a person. She’s played many roles, been a member of many teams, and now has new (unrealized) powers, but none of that has ever changed the fact that at the end of the day she’s still Kamala Khan. Those hoping this limited series would be an action-packed adventure for Ms. Marvel X-Men beginnings, it’s acted more as a “reset” to ground us on Kamala’s maturation as an individual. The action will certainly come, but it’s been an absolute pleasure reading this beautiful ode to one of the best of the Marvel universe.

    The penultimate issue of Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant unfolds with an equal amount of cleverness and contrivedness, which lays the groundwork for an unpredictable final issue. As Kamala enters her dreamscape, and begins to confront her various identities firsthand, the end result is self-contained, but has moments of meaningfulness. Although Carlos Gomez and Adam Gorham’s art is not as seamless as in issues prior, the tapestry of the series still has potential – we’ll just have to wait to see if the ending meets that potential.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant #3 keeps the focus on Kamala as a wholesome, sweet, likable character, but the Orchis plot and execution combine for a plot-holed riddled mess. Once a certain new character appears on the page, that appearance all but confirms there’s no point to this mini other than to give Kamala her Disney+ powers.
