    I suspected Trump’s election broke G. Willow Wilson’s brain in the last Ms Marvel book – now I’m convinced it has! Ms Marvel has jumped (Trumped?) the shark – Volume 8: Mecca is so pants, I’m abandoning this title. In the main story, Wilson indulges in the popular far-left fantasy where the normal rules of democracy have been suspended because Trump is a literal Nazi and America is now a fascist state.

Willow Wilson’s brain in the last Ms Marvel book – now I’m convinced it has! Ms Marvel has jumped (Trumped?) the shark – Volume 8: Mecca is so pants, I’m abandoning this title. In the main story, Wilson indulges in the popular far-left fantasy where the normal rules of democracy have been suspended because Trump is a literal Nazi and America is now a fascist state. The New Jersey mayor has been replaced by a right-wing Nazi white supremacist demagogue (read: Hydra, because this is Marvel) whose self-appointed white Stormtroopers are rounding up Muslims, Inhumans and anyone else deemed not part of the “real” Jersey. It’s an embarrassingly contrived setup for Wilson’s extremist liberal worldview - she doesn’t even attempt to explain why a democratically-elected mayor can be randomly ousted from office because that would reveal the absurdity of the situation! Predictably for someone with such a one-sided perspective, she’s completely unable to write the villains as anything but bland one-dimensional bad guys who aren’t in the least bit interesting. Her SS officer character, Discord, mumbles some crap about acceptance but it’s not at all convincing or remotely indicative of how a real person thinks – it’s shocking how lazy Wilson’s writing has gotten. You can imagine how the tediousness eventually plays out – such a bore. The other story, where Ms Marvel teams up with Red Dagger to stop a runaway train, shows that Wilson knows as little about railways as she does about anyone right of the far left! Apparently in America if a train’s brakes fails, they keep other trains running on connecting tracks and hope for the best. And of course have no other safety measures! And Kamala suddenly has the strength to literally lift a speeding train off the tracks and reattach it seamlessly onto a parallel track. And fuse two tracks into one. And lift up one carriage to slow down the others. If you’re gonna be that silly about it, why not just give her a magic wand to wave?Red Dagger is a mostly pointless addition. He cuts a rope with a knife and then stands back gawping the rest of the time. How does Kamala not put two and two together – she’s amazed he’s here in America after first encountering him in Pakistan, when just a couple pages earlier she met Kareem, who she also met in Pakistan who just happens to have started at her school??? How does she not know it’s him anyway – his scarf barely covers his face! Ditto her mask – why doesn’t everyone, especially her brother, clock that Kamala is Ms Marvel?! There’s suspension of disbelief and there’s this book. Ms Marvel was a great series once upon a time but the stories and writing have devolved significantly of late and the focus and tone has become far too politically driven for my taste. I’m sure like-minded readers will love her confirming their biases in their collective echo chamber but I’m done with this childish, propagandist, far left dogma. Nice knowing you Kamala, it was fun while it lasted!

    After a kind of dwindling of energy and quality and focus in the last few volumes, Ms. Marvel: Volume Eight reveals the team has recaptured its initial zip and sharpness. The story had been working in contemporary political issues, but here they are in full force, as the Pakistani Muslim Kahn (and Kamala’s, aka Ms. Marvel’s) family from Jersey City that we have come to love is now under siege from far right nationalists. To rather specifically echo current trends, Ms. Marvel, a social reformer, After a kind of dwindling of energy and quality and focus in the last few volumes, Ms. Marvel: Volume Eight reveals the team has recaptured its initial zip and sharpness. The story had been working in contemporary political issues, but here they are in full force, as the Pakistani Muslim Kahn (and Kamala’s, aka Ms. Marvel’s) family from Jersey City that we have come to love is now under siege from far right nationalists. To rather specifically echo current trends, Ms. Marvel, a social reformer, is available to help the needy, but she is demonized in the process by right wing members of her community that want to make itself Great Again by putting in place stricter “immigration” restrictions. Yep, this affects Kamala’s own family, as you might have guessed. As Kamala wonders who she can trust, a former friend (Kareem, the Red Dagger) returns to possibly enter into an alliance with her. Oh, and he’s easy on the eyes, too, which helps, well, everything. The series needs a little fresh “chemistry,” so maybe Kareem is the spice it needs.This was the best volume, in some ways, of all of them, though I thought it lost a little steam with the runaway train endeavor (yawn) near the end. The best aspect of the book is that religious and cultural issues re-emerge as central concerns, as we might have always expected from a series about a Muslim girl superhero whose family is devout!Better dialogue and a better sense of humor attends this more serious direction, and it works! Just great characters!

    ”You wanna know how people get radicalized? They get radicalized when they think the only way they can have a starring role in their own lives is by playing the villain.”Volume 8 of Ms. Marvel ties up the series 2 plot of gentrification and Jersey City. As always, Kamala is endearing and worth rooting for; I did enjoy the first cycle of these comics more (Vols. 1-4) but I will continue reading this series for the foreseeable future.

    I think this was my favorite volume of the current series. We start out with a story echoing the ugly nationalism that has risen over the last 2 years in the US.

Kamala finds herself just as frustrated as many of us have felt since the 2016 election. I love how things are ultimately not solved through fisticuffs, but the power of the people legally fighting back. I enjoy how Wilson seamlessly incorporates everyday Muslim life into the book, giving us a look into cultures that may be different from our own.In the last couple of issues Red Dagger moves to Jersey and teams up with Ms. Marvel as they try and stop a runaway train. Some of the humor returns in this arc and Kamala and Kareem have some great chemistry.

    This has been said before that if there is any superhero comic currently published that is the modern equivalent of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's The Amazing Spider-Man, it would be G. Willow Wilson's Ms. Marvel as much like Peter Parker's life, Kamala Khan's is all about balancing her personal life with friends and family, high school and her duties as the local superhero, in which despite her good intentions, it's not helping gaining the public's trust.What was great about the previous volume was This has been said before that if there is any superhero comic currently published that is the modern equivalent of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's The Amazing Spider-Man, it would be G. Willow Wilson's Ms. Marvel as much like Peter Parker's life, Kamala Khan's is all about balancing her personal life with friends and family, high school and her duties as the local superhero, in which despite her good intentions, it's not helping gaining the public's trust.What was great about the previous volume was that after the slight misstep of the Civil War II tie-in issues, it told a standalone story that balanced the super-heroism with the social commentary, reminding what made this run successful in the first place. However, the consequences of Civil War II haunt Kamala as HYDRA agent Chuck Worthy has taken control as the mayor of Jersey City as he begins to target those close to her.As Marvel has always tried to remain relevant as the All-New, All-Different initiative showcases a racially diverse cast of superheroes, the publisher has never tried to force any political statements. However, what opened volume seven was #13, which was clearly an allegory for the 2016 US presidential election and yet by the time the issue was published, we already got the disastrous results. Throughout the majority of this volume, we see a villain in mayoral charge creates an organisation that is assigned to lock up all the unregistered super powers in the city.As a loose continuation of some of the ideas presented in Marvel's Civil War, it is a combination of comic book fantasy and politics that are not too dissimilar with today's American politics, such as terrorism and immigration. Amongst the super-powered victims (or one who did have powers briefly) are Kamala's older brother Aamir who, after getting arrested, opens #20 with a brilliant monologue explaining the common problem of people's assumption of the image of a terrorist, whether it is simply judging someone by the colour of their skin or whatever religion they're in.Given how serious the messages Wilson is trying to display, she never talks down to her readers as the adventures of Kamala Khan are uplifting, such as our eponymous hero fighting her enemies with abilities that are closer to Mr. Fantastic, with moments of heartfelt realisation. Due to the absence of Adrian Alphona and Takeshi Miyazawa, Marco Failla takes charge of artistic duties as along with series colourist Ian Herring, his cartoony illustrations are appropriate to Kamala's elastic moves, whilst balancing the quiet character drama.Concluding this volume is a two-issue arc, in which Kamala is reunited with Kareem, who is participating in an exchange student program in her high school, much to her dissatisfaction. However, when an ongoing train's brakes have malfunctioned, it looks like a job for Ms. Marvel, but she’s also joined by Kareem's superhero alter-ego Laal Khanjeer (or the Red Dagger). Although it very much evokes Tony Scott's Unstoppable, so much so that even Kamala references the Denzel Washington movie, this is a fun buddy-up with great Kamala-centric humour, whilst Diego Olortegui's art is very detailed and textured as the train takes the heroes through stunning locations in New Jersey.No matter how politically G. Willow Wilson wants to be, it is the witty adventures of Kamala Khan that aren’t as big as her fellow Avengers that makes this title continuously readable, whilst setting up something in the near future that she might no longer need the persona of Ms. Marvel.

To which, Kamala responds with bendy Mr. Fantastic moves to against Lockdown and Discord. But more importantly, to which the mayor responds by retaking her position with the backing of the Third Circuit court. Yay, law! Then an exchange student from Karachi appears in the form of Red Dagger (Laal Khanjeer) to help Ms. Marvel stop a runaway train. And a Thor: Ragnarok reference is made which made me snicker. But sadly Bruno is still MIA from Jersey City as he just was awarded citizenship to Wakanda. I mean, impressive! But I miss him in JC.

    This was an interesting installment to the series. I can’t say that it’s my favorite considering the fact that it had a similar message to the last volume. I was hoping that the series would provide us with something new. I was glad to see that Bruno became a permanent of Wakanda. I really think that this means that his story is going to take an interesting turn. I’ll be looking forward to what will be coming in the next volume.

Enjoyment is ultimately part of my rating system, so, minus half a star, Ms. Marvel!Regardless of how it made me want to punch all humans in the mouth a little, Ms. Marvel continues to be the most solid, contemplative (yet still somehow fun) superhero comic I've read. Granted, that's not as many as most people because I find superhero comics ultimately exhausting in the same way I find soap opera and most TV drama series exhausting, but I don't find THIS one exhausting. As I've gotten older, more and more I've begun to crave narrative resolution, and character growth that isn't reversed or upended for the sake of creating new story. In my experience, that can be overlooked easily when you've got endless runs of comics and crossovers to worry about, and then when they're done with one run or storyline, REBOOT.But Wilson, I don't know, man, she's just so good at keeping it all about Kamala. No matter what else is going on in the comics around her, this is a coming of age story about a young superhero, learning to be an adult at the same time she's learning to deal with her powers and the responsibilities and burdens that come with them.I haven't said much about the actual story, and I don't know that I'm going to. Mostly it's just Kamala dealing with some tough times. She and Bruno are still on the outs, and her superhero life is also getting harder. Some very loud people in Jersey City (who are hopefully in the minority) blame her for all the weird things that have been happening, and a certain faction of villains is stoking that fire. Kamala finds it hard to reconcile the fact that yes, some of her activities have brought focus that changed or harmed her city, but at the same time she's saved that same city over and over. And yet, she sees all these people who are angry with her, and what is she supposed to do?I may feel differently about where this one ended up once I read Vol. 9, which looks like it will follow her on her little existential crisis. And OMG WHEN ARE SHE AND BRUNO GOING TO MAKE UP IT'S AGONIZING.[4.5 stars]

Denzel's flick is outright mentioned in the dialogue, in case you were wondering. Early on - and after a very humorous metaphorical observation about the situation - Khan comments "We end up in Pennsylvania?" and all I could think of was the possibility of a story set in my home 'Keystone' state.

    Once again, captivating character interaction makes up for the absolute mess in the plotting. The first arc is a screed against Trumpism with a little nod of understanding as to why Trump is popular with some people. The second, shorter tale about a runaway train seems to illustrate only a vague knowledge of trains, railroad systems and physics. (Can anyone tell me what happened in that tunnel when the two trains were on course for a head-on collision?)

The mayor of Jersey City has been evicted by the Hydra guy we saw in former volumes. Shazam! It looks like it happened overnight, just like that. No clue as to how. Wilson needs a far right front man so he pops up. She needs angry mobs coming out of the blue? Sure, here they are. She needs dedicated minions intent on on applying their hateful new laws? They suddenly walk in line for her convenience.Not to mention the freckled redhead that turned Gestapo to a caricature.After that there's a poor man's Unstoppable 2 parter. Again no attempt at credibility. A slow moving train (40mph, not exactly Fast&Furious,eh?) might derail and nobody seriously seems to care but Kamala and a new useless sidekick she doesn't recognize when everything leads to the obvious only guy that matches. Looks like Wilson thought she was plotting a Dora the explorer episode! On the other hand, nobody ever seemed to identify Kamala when her features are quite recognizable under her Zorro mask... Kamala then does a bunch of new tricks, like changing the tracks an incoming train rides on like it was a miniature model or squeezing tracks together to re-frame them, just because it helps Wilson's story.Lazy. That's what comes to mind. G. Willow Wilson is lazy. She wants to tell a story but not the going through the inconvenience of trying to make it credible. She uses her bag of tricks and voila. That's somehow disrespectful, like we can gobble up anything. Hey it's super heroes and it's a comic book so why bother at all?This pisses me off because I'm supportive of Wilson's message and the "Mecca" story was intrinsically not bad. But Wilson's total lack of attention of details to make something plausible of her plot reduces the whole to nothing, some childish views of the world. At the end of the book Kamala reconsiders her options as to continuing her super hero business. I'm starting to reconsider mine as to continuing this series.

This series could literally never end. Sometimes when I read it I am reminded of Fairy Tail. For those who don’t know this manga series, it’s about a group of people that are part of a guild and go on a lot of quests to earn money and recognition, often finding villains along the way.Both series are similar in the sense that villains appear all the time. The reader knows that this could go on forever, since every time a villain is defeated, two appear out of thin air. It is bound to become repetitive and tiring, isn’t it?And yet, I keep on coming back for more, because I know that I will not rest peacefully if I don’t know what will happen to the characters next. Ms. Marvel and Fairy Tail progress very slowly and both adore teasing us with romantic relationship possibilities for the protagonists, but I for one will keep on wanting more.The last two chapters are the best. Ms. Marvel is reunited with a character she put at the back of her mind and thought she would never see again. Once again the ending is dramatic and implies that more will follow and that Ms. Marvel isn’t done growing up yet. That’s fine, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
