The recent Ms. Marvel series has garnered attention for its unique take on the titular character, Kamala Khan. One significant aspect that has fans buzzing is the revelation that Kamala is a mutant. This article discusses the potential implications of this revelation and the future of mutants in the Marvel Universe.
As a newcomer to the X-Men series, one may not immediately recognize the iconic theme when it plays in Ms. Marvel. Catching up on the animated series and diving into the live-action films, however, will reveal the intricate connections between Kamala’s story and the larger Marvel Universe.
The bangles that Kamala wears have become a topic of debate, with some speculating that they may be a part of the overarching Kang dynasty storyline. However, it seems unlikely that the bangles are the actual source of Kamala’s powers. Instead, the theory suggests that mutants must be “officially” introduced for Kamala’s powers to be derived from her inherent abilities, with the bangles potentially acting as enhancers.
Although Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch, is a mutant in the comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has yet to delve into mutants beyond Kamala’s revelation. This omission is primarily due to the rights issue that previously prevented Marvel from incorporating mutants into their movies. However, with the rights now secured, it is only a matter of time before mutants take center stage in the MCU.
Fans are eagerly awaiting a significant reveal of mutants in the Marvel Universe, and there is no better place to do so than in an upcoming Marvel’s movie. A potential twist on the comic book line “no more mutants” could involve Wanda saying “more mutants,” signifying a new era for mutants in the MCU.
Once the existence of mutants becomes widely acknowledged, Kamala may come to realize that she never needed the bangles to access her powers. This self-discovery would further cement her status as a mutant and potentially pave the way for her to join other mutants in future storylines.
The Ms. Marvel series has breathed new life into the character of Kamala Khan and introduced the exciting possibility of mutants becoming a central part of the Marvel Universe. As Kamala’s story unfolds, fans can expect to see more connections to the X-Men and potentially even a significant reveal of mutants in a Marvel’s film. This development would signal the dawn of a new era for the MCU, with Kamala Khan at the forefront of a generation of mutants ready to take the spotlight.
