The newest MCU Disney+ show, Ms. Marvel, has introduced us to a new superhero, but what are her superpowers?

What are Ms. Marvel's powers, and how do they differ to Captain's Marvel's?The Ms. Marvel comic books tell a different story

Kamala was able to grow and stretch like Mister Fantastic, and her powers tended to be seen as a metaphor for puberty, as the teenage hero was often grossed out by how her body could drastically change.

But according to Ms. Marvel head writer Bisha K. Ali, Kamala’s power origin had to be changed for the MCU. They state to Decider: “Bearing in mind that we’re doing a show for the MCU, which is 10 years of a web of storytelling, but we’re fitting into [a world that’s] fundamentally different from the one in the comics.”

In the comics, Khan’s powers and the mist that triggered them were created during another super-team’s storyline, one that followed the Inhumans. However, after the failed Inhumans ABC series in 2017, the MCU has basically ignored them. So without the Inhumans in the MCU, Ms. Marvel inevitably had to get her powers another way – hence the mysterious bangle and the light powers.

Will Kamala’s powers develop in the show?

Ultimately, until the show is fully released, we may not be able to see the full extent of Kamala’s powers, or how these powers will develop as she trains more. Perhaps we’ll even get a glimpse at her old stretching powers. Comic fans can only hope.

The third episode of Ms. Marvel will hit Disney+ next Wednesday, June 22. Read our review of Episode 2 here.
