Ms. Marvel Might Have the Most Canonical Love Interests of Any MCU Hero


The next accommodates spoilers for Ms. Marvel Season 1, Episode 4, “Seeing Red,” now streaming on Disney+.

Ms. Marvel performs Kamala Khan as a little bit of a wallflower, and but within the area of 4 brief episodes, she’s rapidly amassed a big group of potential love pursuits. It is spectacular, in addition to nodding to a different of Marvel’s conventional comedian e book staples. Love triangles and “will they or won’t they?” tales have lengthy performed a giant half of their storylines, although the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been extra hesitant in utilizing them. Ms. Marvel appears to be making up for misplaced floor, as Kamala Khan’s everygirl heroine story is all of the sudden filled with potential romance.

It is very a lot in step with elements of the Ms. Marvel comics. Her three present would-be suitors originated there, and their arcs within the MCU seem like roughly in keeping with these from the supply materials. It could assist followers of the present decide the place her love life goes. Extra importantly, it demonstrates a break from what the colossal superhero franchise has delivered up to now.

As of Season 1, Episode 4, “Seeing Red,” Khan has at the least three boys with sturdy romantic potential. The most recent is presumably probably the most intriguing for longtime Ms. Marvel followers. Crimson Dagger first appeared in Ms. Marvel Vol. 4 #12 following the occasions of the “Civil War” comics storyline, as Khan was touring the world. He rapidly turned her main love curiosity, and finally got here to reside with Kamala’s household in New Jersey whereas attending her highschool as an change scholar. “Seeing Red” definitely wasn’t shy about transferring him to the forefront of her potential suitors.

The opposite two have related bona fides from the comics. Kamran, the ClanDestine despatched to lure her near his Djinn household, appeared to have the within observe to boyfriend standing earlier than Crimson Dagger appeared in “Seeing Red.” He joined Marvel Comics in Ms. Marvel, Vol. 3 #13 a few 12 months earlier than Crimson Dagger, with a background matching Khan’s Inhumans hyperlink relatively than the ClanDestines within the new collection. That problem was half two of a three-part storyline referred to as “Crushed,” which was additionally the identify of Season 1, Episode 2, the place Kamran was launched to the MCU.

Lastly, there’s Bruno, Khan’s long-suffering confidante, who’s clearly mad for her however has been her platonic pal for lengthy sufficient that she will’t fairly see it. His presence goes again to All-New Marvel NOW! Level One #1.NOW — Khan’s first official look as Ms. Marvel — and has performed out strongly within the new streaming collection up till this level. Bruno’s resolution to go to Cal Tech seemingly alerts his departure from the ranks of Khan’s potential paramours, although he isn’t apt to stay away for lengthy.

That brings her depend to a few, all canonically linked to her from the comics and all offered roughly as meant. That is a pointy break for the MCU, which historically contents itself with both the travails of particular person {couples} or burgeoning love triangles with just one rival. Steve Rogers had a quick flirtation with Sharon Carter, as an illustration, however actually solely had eyes for Peggy. Thor, equally, by no means discovered one other lover after Jane, with prospects like Valkyrie rapidly outlined as platonic buddies or allies relatively than mates. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was at all times candy for MJ, and even famous lothario Tony Stark centered his romantic subplots virtually totally on Pepper Potts.

Towards that, Khan stands way more intently to the comics, when contemporary romantic rivals and doable entanglements have been frequent in each nook of Marvel. The way it all seems is as much as the showrunners — and can doubtless stay an open query via the tip of the primary collection regardless — nevertheless it’s a powerful signal of Ms. Marvel‘s dedication to its roots. “Seeing Red” is an affirmation that Khan’s more-human dilemmas will obtain as a lot consideration as her superheroic ones.
