MCU actress and comic book writer, Iman Vellani, revealed which issue of her new series, Ms. Marvel: The New Mutants, she is most excited for fans to read.
In an exclusive interview with Nerds of Color, Vellani stated that the third issue of the new miniseries was her favorite. “Kamala has been dealing with a lot of things mentally after being resurrected on Krakoa, so we do spend a lot of time in Kamala’s mind and in her dreamland, and exploring how this whole process of being resurrected, having this new label has affected her psyche. Issue three kind of doesn’t exactly take place in reality, so it’s been really cool to kind of just write whatever I can imagine because the possibilities are endless when you’re dealing with outside of reality,” she explained.

Iman Vellani Expresses the Importance of Ms. Marvel’s Journey
Vellani complimented the art in the third issue and listed it as one of the reasons she is excited for readers to see the final product. “Our artist, Adam Gorham, has just exceeded all expectations, it’s beautiful. It’s a good-looking book, so I’m very excited for that one,” said the actress.
She also told Nerds of Color why this specific issue was important. She emphasized the importance of Kamala’s inner turmoil. She said that it wouldn’t do the character justice if she and the comics’ other creators didn’t let fans witness the trauma that death can bring even though she was resurrected. “We didn’t want to jump straight into, “Okay, she has a mission. She’s fighting with the X-men now.”
Vellani further elaborated, “It’s a big deal that she’s a mutant now. We don’t want to gloss over that at all and there is a time jump from Hellfire Gala to our series, so what’s Kamala been doing in that time? What’s she been dealing with? How does a 16-year-old cope with all these insane changes in her life? Who is in her surroundings that can help her kind of cope?” She added that it was also fun “just watching her kind of acclimate to this new life that she’s been given, literally, and the new colors that she wears.”
Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant #1 is now available in comic book shops and participating digital platforms from Marvel Comics.
