    So, is anyone excited for Kamala's upcoming appearance in Marvel Rising? = )

    Btw, is this Kamala's first appearance in either animation or TV in general? I think she's been featured in several games already, but this is her first media appearance on the screen, methinks?


    Also, here's a picture of Kamala by Terry Dodson - I must say, she was the last heroine I would have thought he would be drawing!

    Not her first, her first was Avengers Assemble season 3 I believe.

    Oh...big fist again. With her powers you would think people could find something different to do.

    Thanks!

    I'm super excited that Wilson got the Wonder Woman job. And she has said she's staying on Ms. Marvel. I'm still concerned that she's easing her way into a departure. I can't imagine another writer doing Ms. Marvel... I hope she stays on for a good long time.

    That said.. who do you all think would be a good replacement? I have a hard time coming up with more than a few names. The first that came to mind is Sina Grace, partly because of his background but mainly because his Iceman series had a very similar tone to Ms. Marvel and I really enjoyed that series. Other than that.. I really struggle with names that I think could fit.

    Who would you like to see?

    Her fist is pretty iconic. Honestly, it's not much different from showing Spider-Man web-swinging. If you're not drawing Kamala often, you may as well go with what's most iconic for a character.

    Magdalene Visaggio's an answer I go to a lot. Nnedi Okorafor would probably be an interesting choice. Kelly Thompson's always an easy option, and I'd definitely like to see her write a bit of Kamala.

    What about Saladin Ahmed? He writes Exiles and was one of the contributors to the 50th issue celebration.

    And as for animation, yes, she debuted in Avengers Ultron Revolution, which showed her origin. She then joined the All-New All-Different Avengers at the start of season 4, Avengers Secret Wars. She's also appeared in the Spider-Man cartoon, which also depicts her as an Avenger, and in the Japanese anime Future Avengers, which retold her origin.

    I've been thinking since it came out but what would people think to the revamped Marvel 2-in-1 having Ms Marvel as the regular? Could shake it up from having The Thing as a constant to Kamala?

    The only thing I've read of Visaggio's is the first few issues of Eternity Girl and the Dazzler one shot. I dropped Eternity Girl because I couldn't really follow it and it just didn't click with me. I thought the Dazzler book was ok, pretty heavy handed but I do like the fact that she totally went for it. She had something to say and that's almost always a plus for me. Okorafor is probably the front runner, based on nothing but my speculation, and I'd be ok with that. Thompson is can often be pretty sarcastic and kind of mean with her stuff, and while I actually really like those things, I don't think it would be a good fit for Ms Marvel. But she's smart enough to realize that a Hawkeye tone would be the wrong way to go.

    I thought about Ahmed also. I didn't name him because I didn't want to do the obvious "Put the (partly) Middle Eastern guy on it", but after thinking more about it, I say why not. If he's a good fit he's a good fit. His mother was a political activist, which lines up well. I kind of think of Kamala as more of a political activist/future ambassador more than a superhero. Maybe Ahmed's upbringing would provide a great perspective for Kamala. I would prefer a woman to write the book but I don't think it's crucial.

    What the heck? Saladin Ahmed grew up in Michigan as a normie and had normies for parents compared to Kamala's.

    If Okorafor was the person who wrote X-Men Wakanda Forever I might give them a chance.

    That is indeed who wrote Wakanda Forever. They're also on Shuri's solo.
