Ms Marvel Vol. 2; Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona and Jacob Wyatt
or: YES! GO KAMALA!
Synopsis: Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! If Kamala can stop fan-girling out about meeting her favorite super hero, that is. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity — by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. Kamala bands together with some unlikely heroes to stop the maniacal villain before he does real damage, but has she taken on more than she can handle? And how much longer can Ms. Marvel’s life take over Kamala Khan’s? Kamala Khan continues to prove why she’s the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is!
When I first read Vol. 1 of Ms Marvel, I knew I was going to love this series. But oh my stars, did I adore this second installation! All that rich, lovely world building that Wilson and Co did in the first one was kicked into full throttle by the excellence of plot of vol.2. As if I could love Kamala any more!
This book is a wild ride from start to finish as we see Kamala finding her feet and trying to work out this whole superhero business. Struggling to keep a balance between school, home and her extra curricular crime fighting activities, Kamala becomes even more human and that’s what Kamala’s appeal is. Kamala is cute, funny and so much fun to follow.
The Inventor was a bit of a shock but I pissed myself laughing for a good chunk of his dialogue scenes. I don’t know if that’s what Wilson wanted, but I found the whole premise hilarious. Honestly, now with some time to think on it, I don’t know who else would have possibly shown off Kamala’s strengths as a character more.
And oh my goodness that Wolverine Cameo though! Just all normal, fighting some crime and then BOOM Wolverine comes bursting through. His lines, contribution to the plot and quick bow out were perfect and I loved every second of their interaction. Please Wilson bring Wolverine back in the future!
This comic isn’t strictly action, Wilson also dedicates the necessary time to strengthen the world building and further strengthens the comic as a whole. That’s the beauty about this series; Wilson anticipates his audience and puts on a lavish spread for them, giving them exactly what they need and then some. This is one of those comics that could easily take on the big guns and I really want this comic to pick up more followers because it deserves a heck tonne of fame.
The Third Volume in this series is on my to-buy list and as soon as my TBR piles down, this baby is coming home with me. Definitely a series that is still growing, now is definitely the time to join the Kamala fan club if you haven’t already. With Volume 5 coming out some time in 2016, there’s a lot to look forward to.
This second volume was definitely going to be a make or break, and Wilson and Co. delivered. A big hearty high-five needs to go their way. They’ve killed it.
This Book was read in 2015 and was apart of my 2015 Reading Challenge.
