Strap in, because this issue of Ms. Marvel is nothing but action.
Wolverine is still here, in search of Julie. In the last issue, Kamala and Wolverine found themselves in a bit of pickle when The Inventor, an evil mix of Thomas Edison and a Cockatiel, sent a “Megagator” after them. Which wouldn’t probably be a problem, except Wolverine lost his rejuvenation powers.
The two manage to take out the Megagator in a scene that could have been far more gruesome than it was (thankfully), and they wander around the sewers trying to get out before The Inventor gets them, which involves a lot of piggy back rides for Wolverine on the back of a teenage girl, and if you don’t think that’s hilarious, pick up the comic book and prove yourself wrong.
Too bad The Inventor seems to control everything in this area. Just as they are about to escape, the two are trapped in a room that closes in on them. Circumventing it, they go in search for a power source, knowing that as long as The Inventor controls the power, they cannot get free.
That’s when we find out just why The Inventor was stealing all of those kids. Yeah. Like Soylent Green, the power source is people. Not just any people, Julie.
Freeing her, Wolverine leaves Kamala promising her a gyro next time they meet, and then goes on to inform the Avengers of her presence in Jersey City.
The Avengers decide that she needs some guidance, and they decide to send (and I am not kidding here, so prepare yourself) Lockjaw. Yeah, the alien bulldog from ‘The Fantastic Four.’
Simply said, this is going to be awesome.
Honestly, it is exactly why I like Ms. Marvel. You don’t have to be a Marvel connisseur to enjoy it, but if you are, it sure throws in a lot of a treats for you to enjoy.
So, I am excited for the next issue. I can’t wait to see what Kamala does with her new “pet,” though the Avengers maybe should have thought about how easy it would be for her to convince her parents she has a new bulldog. This may actually make it harder for her in the long run!
