The rubbish story fittingly opens in a garbage dump with Ms. Marvel fighting a robot composed of trash. In a very unheroic move she runs away when she gets a call from her strict Pakistani mother, who tells her not to be late for the mehndi (pre-wedding party). The 8 page preview is filled with foreign words and cultural insights that come across as heavy-handed as the shapeshifter’s oversized hand, which looks like a ripoff of the anime character Luffy from One Piece. Writer G. Willow Wilson says she drew on her own experiences as a young girl, which include converting to Islam.
Ms. Marvel #1 will launch in February and be cancelled shortly after if they continue to shovel this garbage down our throats.
