Is the new Ms Marvel the same as Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue DeConnick? o.o

No!  Captain Marvel is still being written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, and it was just added to Marvel’s Now! line.  Captain Marvel is Carol Danvers, a former US Air Force pilot and current Avenger.

Ms. Marvel is being written by G. Willow Wilson, and the first issue just came out.  Ms. Marvel is Kamala Khan, a first generation Pakistani-American, a Muslim teenage girl struggling to find her place in the world, and part of that is her idolization of the Avengers, including Carol. 8)

Consider checking them both out, but please give Kamala a chance.  She is a rarity in modern comics: a female of color written by a woman.  The art is beautifully matched to the story, and it rings true.  There are people out there who are upset by Marvel putting their time, money, and effort behind a female led book, especially because they are not pandering to the male gaze with her powers, her outfit, or her personality.  We need to counteract that, and continue to encourage the creation of heroes for every person, every child.
