Not gonna lie, I really want Faiza Hussain from Mi13 and Kamala Khan (Ms Marvel) to meet up at some point. If only to geek out over the fact that they’re both fans of superheroes who ended up joining the community they admired for so long.

…Though that would require someone other than Paul Cornell (Faiza’s creator) remembering that she exists. At least, other than that Gambit writer, who had the titular hero kick Faiza in the stomach so he could steal Excalibur (who judged her worthy to wield it, by the by) for some rich racist.

CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13 MASTERPOST

So if you’re interested in reading the first appearance(s) of Faiza Hussain, this is the post for you!

Download links:

If you’re the type of person who (like me) prefers to read something before you buy it, then download these zip files. Once you’ve done that, though, here’s where you can buy the series:

  • Comixology only has volume 1 collected for purchase as a digital copy, but if you scroll through the little “Captain Britain and MI13” thing on the page they’ve got every individual issue for sale, including, I believe, the annual
  • Amazon has all three volumes as hard copies (1 2 and 3). The prices aren’t bad, even with shipping, and you can get used copies for cheaper (depending on how high a quality you want your issues to be). I don’t know if Amazon has all of the individual issues because I’m lazy and didn’t feel like looking, but if you’re going to buy them individually online you might as well go for the digital copies.
  • Midtown Comics has the individual issues as well (for hard copy I believe) but they’re a bit more expensive. 

I hope all of you read this series (come on, it’s only 16 issues, you can finish it in a day I believe in you) and IF YOU LIKE IT, BUY IT!! I don’t know if it’s too late or not, but somehow we have to let Marvel know that we love these characters and want more of them. Even if I get just another MI13 team book instead of my dream goal (a Faiza Hussain solo series) I’ll be happy.

Ten thousand feet above the Sahara Desert.

Dane & Faiza: AHHHH!!!
Dane: Keep looking at me! We’ve got about a minute fifteen!
Faiza: Ahh!!!!
Dane: Can we do anything?
Faiza: I…I don’t know!
Dane: I can’t. Can you?!
Faiza: I…I think– I think maybe… If I heal us…right at the moment…right at the exact moment…
Dane: Can you–can you do that?!
Faiza: I don’t know!
Dane: Do you want to concentrate, or, I don’t know… Time for a round of charades?
Faiza: It’s all right for you, you’ve got that heart of stone, you don’t feel! I’m going to–close my eyes for a sec–praying. Sorry.
Dane: Don’t damn well say sorry for that! Is there anything else you want us to do or…or say…before–?
Faiza: … No.

Meet Dr. Faiza Hussein: Doctor, fangirl, super-hero, wielder of Excalibur. Yes, that excalibur.

Farida Hussein: But why Faiza? Why did you choose my daughter?
Dane Whitman [the Black Knight]: That’s something else they’re not telling you. We didn’t.
Faiza: I already decided I was gonna show you this. The media think it vanished from Westminster Bridge. But here’s why I said yes to all this– Excalibur chose me. Dad… don’t you want to have a go?
