Complete Storyline and information about Ms. Marvel
The 16-year-old teenager Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) has Pakistani roots and lives in Jersey City, New Jersey. Here she lives with her Muslim family, which imposes strict rules on her. Kamala is a great admirer of the superhero Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers. She gushes about the adventures of the Avengers with her best friend Bruno Carelli (Matt Lintz), who has above-average intelligence and works a part-time job at the Circle Q convenience store.
Kamala feels like an outsider because of her background and would like to be recognized by her classmates. And so she sneaks out of the house one night to attend a party. But in the meantime, an incident occurs that triggers what is known as terrigenesis in Kamala.
Kamala is in fact an Inhuman whose powers are activated by Terrigenesis. Suddenly she has shape-shifting abilities. Inspired by her idol Captain Marvel, she takes on the name Ms. Marvel to ensure law and order on the streets of Jersey City. In the process, Kamala must first learn who and what kind of superhero she wants to be and whether she is even up to this great responsibility.
