Let me start by saying that I'm not a huge Marvel fan. Now I do like a lot of the characters and love the Marvel movies, but I really don't know much about the Marvel universe. But there are two Marvel comic series that really got me interested. The Ultimate Spider-Man books (started near the end of the Peter Parker era and now with Miles Morales), and G. Willow Wilson's Ms. Marvel starring Kamala Khan.

Now isn't your typical nerdy Muslim teenage girl, she's also an Inhuman. Once her powers were unlocked thanks to the terrigen mist, Kamala took decided to become a hero and the new Ms. Marvel based on her idol, Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel).

Her powers give her the ability to shapeshift and heal.

She's just overall a great character because she's actually really relatable (like a lot of Marvel characters). She's relatable to young girls, Muslims, teens in strict or religious families, even nerds who just really like superheroes and all things in between. And it's nice because sometimes it really feels like comics only market towards straight white men and not, you know, everyone. She's likable, fun, even Wolverine likes her.

She's one of my favorite Marvel characters and one of my favorite heroes, so of course I want to see her appear in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now there a few different ways to do it.

1) Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

At the end of the Season 2 finale, it's revealed that some terrigen crystals were released into the ocean and spread are now in fish oil capsules and possibly other things. And now in season 3, we are seeing more Inhumans appear. So this leaves the possibility of the team encountering and helping Kamala Khan. And we have seen Ms. Marvel interact with the team in the comic issue S.H.I.E.L.D. #2. And I really was neat seeing Kamala and Coulson discuss supervillain weapons.

Though I really think this is unlikely to happen because we haven't seen Carol Danvers appear in the MCU as Captain Marvel (or even Ms. Marvel) yet. And I really hope this doesn't happen because Carol Danvers is extremely necessary for Kamala to become Ms. Marvel.

2) Captain America: Civil War

Now since the movie comes out next year, we still don't know too much about it yet or how similar it will be to the comic storyline. But since it seems that it will involve the government wanting to have control over the Avengers and other super powered people this might how they could introduce Spider-Man and then possibly Ms. Marvel. And since Kevin Feige has said that Captain Marvel might have appeared at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, maybe Carol Danvers could appear in Civil War and we could have a shot of Kamala watching the Avengers on the news.

And I want to be clear that I'm not saying that she should again character in any of these choices, I'm just listing possible ways that they can introduce the character into the universe.

3) Captain Marvel

Like I said before, Captain Marvel is important to exist in the MCU first before introducing Kamala Khan. So this could be a good opportunity to introduce her at some point in the movie. Since it would probably just be a quick scene with her, maybe we could see Kamala watching the news seeing Captain Marvel fight or talking about her near the end to show that she's a big Captain Marvel fan.

4) Inhumans

So for now, this could be the only other possible choice besides "Captain Marvel" since Carol Danvers should definitely be introduced by then. It's possible for Kamala to appear since the film will focus on multiple Inhumans. Though I'm sure the film will focus on some more notable Inhumans like Black Bolt and Medusa.

Now these are just some ways I think Kamala Khan could be introduced into the MCU. I'm not sure if any of these will happen or even if she will appear, but these are just possibilities.

What do you think? Should Kamala Khan appear in any of these ways? Should she appear at all in the MCU? Do you even like Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel? Let me know. Though if the answer to the last 2 questions are no, then don't respond cause I don't need that kind of negativity in my life (I'm kidding).
