Willow Wilson, Marvel fans will now have a brand new Ms. Marvel! The new character that will take on the name will be the young Kamala Khan.

Marvel is not only making the new Ms. Marvel young, 16 years old, but they are giving her a great backstory as well. Kamala comes from a Pakistani family, is Muslim, is a resident of New Jersey, and is a full polymorph! G. Willow Wilson spoke about her thoughts on Kamala being Pakistani and Muslim, "I thought it was cool that Marvel wanted to go out on that limb and take on such a risky character -- to take on a character that had those elements to her background.
