Synopsis:

While CIVIL WAR II brews, the next generation of Avengers has bigger things to worry about – like a tri-state academic competition! As rival schools clash, Ms. Marvel’s teammates Spider-Man and Nova are now her enemies! But when Kamala gets called to the real battle’s front line, she faces a fight she can’t embiggen her way out of. She’s about to learn a valuable lesson: Never meet your idols! As war intensifies, tragedy strikes too close to home – and Ms. Marvel must choose between her heroes and her family. When friends become foes, Ms. Marvel struggles to put her life and Jersey City back together. Kamala will be forced to grow up fast and find her true place in the world. But will she be an international sensation…or a menace?

The thing I love about this series is not only the action and the amazing storytelling but how it coincides with real life events, making it a more relatable to the story to the reader. Kamala continuously struggles to balance her superhero personality with her family life. The continuous clash shows how real Kamala truly is. And the current social issues?Judgement for crimes before they are even committed? This was a perfect storyline for a younger audience.With everything that is currently going on now, kids and teens will dive more into the story and and admire Kamala as a character more.

And I loved that we got to see more of her family and her origins, which I believe is an important factor when writing the beginnings of a superhero. Her constant struggle became more alive to me and I admired her more. Kamala was more real instead an unattainable idol that looks like it is perfect on the inside and out. I don’t read a lot of graphic novels but this is one series I will definitely continue to read until the very end. It manages to never disappoint. I highly recommend it!
