Iman Vellani Gives Ms Marvel Her Bangle Back
In the Ms Marvel TV series and the movie The Marvels, Kamala Khan gains her powers as a hybrid of mutancy and the Noor Dimension.
- Iman Vellani reclaims Ms Marvel's bangle in new comic issue.
- Kamala Khan's powers tie to mutancy and the Noor Dimension.
- Comic and screen versions of Ms Marvel wield a family heirloom.
- "Ms Marvel: Mutant Menace" by Vellani & Pirzada launches in March.
In the Ms Marvel TV series and the movie The Marvels, Kamala Khan gains her powers through a genetic heritage as a hybrid between being a mutant and from an interdimensional race from the Noor Dimension known as the Djinn, as well as her Quantum Band, found on a Kree body in the forties by Kamala's great-grandmother Aisha and passed down Khan's family.
In the comic books, it's a bit different. Her powers come from her Inhuman heritage. Her bracelet is a series of bangles with hollow compartments inside, modified by Bruno into a single bracelet worn on Kamala's left arm to hold her cell phone and other small items. They were originally used by Kamala's great-grandmother Aisha to smuggle money out of Bombay during Partition and had been passed down.
Either way, Ms Marvel fights with a family heirloom wrapped around her wrist in both versions.
Except, she hadn't for a while in the comics, not since she died and was later resurrected. But in today's Ms Marvel: The New Mutant #4, written by Iman Vellani who plays Ms Marvel in the TV and movies, it gets returned to her after being kept safe by Spider-Man.
And she'll be wearing it again in the upcoming Ms Marvel: Mutant Menace when it launches in March.
