This summer Marvel Studios adds their next superhero from the youth set to its pantheon of superheroes, on the heels of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Florence Pugh’s new Black Widow, and Hailee Steinfeld’s new Hawkeye. Iman Vellani stars in Ms. Marvel, a series which looks a lot like Marvel’s answer to DC Comics’ lighthearted, coming of age superheroine series, Stargirl. Just as there have been different versions of Captain Marvel over the past 80 years in comic books, there have been multiple Ms. Marvels. This iteration hails from comics stories from only the past decade. Just as Steinfeld’s character first admired and was inspired to be a super from first seeing the older Hawkeye when she was young, Vellani’s character has a similar backstory with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
