Kamala (Iman Vellani) wants answers. Or rather, she needs them. After showing — or not — her potential, Jersey City’s youngest heroine, a journey into her history begins. His, her family’s and her power that she carries on her back in the strange bracelet she inherited from her great-grandmother. In Ms Marvel, from Disney +, it’s time for answers. Also, the one that allows the series to explore in its universe, its ethnic accent and its intelligent way of analyzing the sense of superhero. All in the midst of a painful flashback about a loss, a wedding and the investigation of a possible hidden enemy.
Perhaps it is due to his ambition, but the third episode of Ms Marvel cannot cover all that it proposes. Or at any rate, he does it half-heartedly, without the sparkle and sparkling vivacity of his previous two chapters. Until now, Marvel’s big bet with the character was to explore the world of the very young superheroine in training from a dazzling shine. But for the new episode of her, the series becomes slower, less festive and more introspective. The change half suits him, he stands on a rapid but less effective speech than before.
Until now, Ms Marvel he is a compendium of energy and seems to lose a bit of it, as he delves into Kamala’s powers and her origin. The superhero eventually finds hers just like hers — or what she thinks might be — and the plot carefully assembles the idea of her origin. And she goes through it, through an oral narration, with the feeling that there are more secrets to keep. Not only in Kamala’s search for a reason why her power belongs to her and how much that can influence, to show his transition to the heroic. But Kamala, after all, is only sixteen years old. And her experience of older creatures overwhelms him, she overwhelms her, and in the end, wraps her up in a series of half-truths.
Ms. Marvel plays her plot with a precise pulse. Especially when the series requires, now yes, to abandon the field of jokes and the brief period of bewilderment, to move towards her mysteries. She succeeds, just barely, and only in the final sequences of the chapter, the series recovers its enthusiastic and vibrant rhythm. But it is notorious that there are two spaces in this narrative whose center is a very young heroine who is confused and now in danger. One of them, the portent that he holds as an inheritance on his wrist. And on the other, the more elaborate and complex version that Marvel builds around him.
Ms. Marvel in search of a reason and a place
For the revelation of the origin story of her heroine, Ms. Marvel composes a providential encounter, as well as a brief complicated and unbelievable explanation. Of course, the series bases its effectiveness on keeping the vision from Kamala’s perspective, and that includes a healthy dose of naivety. But this time, the trick is insufficient in the midst of the irruption of government agents and also interdimensional creatures. Lost the condition of everyday plainness of the first episodes, the program must provide a careful turn to its argument. In particular, analyze the perception about the new information in context.
It doesn’t, or at least not completely. The plot decides to give Kamala a central story that turns out to be a combination of the existence of an ancient race and the power within. The Djinn, an ancient race of immortals, make their first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And just like in the comic, they tell a story of destruction and loss. They need to return to their dimension — to the light, in a strange version of the origin mythology — and for that, they need Kamala. So, what the script shows as the center of Kamala’s powers, they have something providential. At the same time, the intention of the argument to delve into the possibility of the extraordinary through dark secrets is well known. But, he analyzes it from a clumsy condition about the sense of the inevitable.
Kamala, suddenly in the middle of an old confrontation that discovers her abilities, doesn’t seem to have it all with her to face the consequences. The series explores the fact that the character’s youth is, for now, a limit in the knowledge of her. Or in any case, in the form of showing her powers as something more than a series of concatenated accidents that take her from one place to another in complete confusion. In the end, when the truth of the group of singular protectors that surround him is revealed, the series shows it from an almost innocent turn. And that’s when the show shows the inevitable low point for him. How to face the wonderful from the everyday?
in search of a story
mid season, Ms Marvel he needed to hold on to his own mythology. Also, delving into more than just Kamala’s ethnicity and her need to make sense of the power she holds or emanates from her. The dilemma is still not entirely clear. For now, only one thing is quite clear. Kamala will have to face not only a group of renegades from an alternate dimension, but also make a journey through the weak points of her plot.
