Explaining Ms. Marvel’s New Powers for the Upcoming Disney+ Series
Fans of the comic character were quick to note just how different the abilities of Kamala Khan were in the first trailer for the upcoming MCU series, and we discuss Ms. Marvel’s new powers, and why they make sense.
Kamala Khan is the superhero-loving superfan from Jersey City who finds herself at the center of the Marvel Universe when she acquires powers of her own.
The comic book character of the same name holds a special place in the hearts of Marvel fans and has quickly become one of the most popular Marvel characters to date.
Known for her ability to stretch her limps, and shapeshift in a rubber fashion, the character’s cartoonish depictions in the source material did well in endearing her to readers; yet, it seems like that won’t be the case for the upcoming Disney+ series.
A crystal-like cosmic projection has now become the main power of the character, and many fans are unsure what it means, and why the change took place; which is why MarvelBlog has taken to explaining Ms. Marvel’s new powers, and why they do make a bit of sense.
In the first trailer, there is a scene in which viewers observe Kamala place a bracelet of sorts on her wrist; this seems to be the catalyst that first grants the young hero her powers, is an object that may have some comic book history in its own right.
Those bands are most likely the Quantum Bands- or Nega Bands- which are powerful weapons in the Marvel Universe.
The bracelet-like weapons grant the wearer the power of the quantum zone and interact with the wearer’s nervous system to grant them the power of energy manipulation; something that makes sense in the context of what we’ve seen in the trailer.
Khan is seen in a moment with her eyes turning purple, and falling into a very different realm- yet one that had the same physical properties as the current MCU reality- which could point to one of two things; either the bracelet is connecting her with e Quantum Realm, or the Negative Zone.
The Negative Zone is the source of power for the Nega Bands, artifacts that are similar in power to the Quantum Bands, and were worn by the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell.
Either way, Ms. Marvel’s new powers have more to do with energy manipulation and the ability to construct matter than altering her own physical properties, and it is likely due to the power present in these bands.
With a scene that points to the Terrigen Mist, however, it isn’t out of the question that we do see the beginning of the Inhumans in the MCU either.
