Ms. Marvel Episode 6 Finale Breakdown & Easter Eggs
The sixth and final episode of Ms. Marvel is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia. l’ll be discussing heavy spoilers so if you haven’t seen it or want to avoid spoilers, now’s your chance to stop reading.
Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero megafan with an oversized imagination, particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet? Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home, that is, until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?
Bruno and Kamran both survived the explosion in Episode 5 (which is not unexpected, of course).
For the first time in the MCU, Kamala gets her full costume as Ms. Marvel. However, the promotional material for this series has already spoiled the design, which is comics-accurate, so it’s not exactly a surprise to see her finally suiting up. Still, it’s awesome to see.
Kamala finally embiggens for the first time.
In the comics, one of Kamala’s iconic abilities is to Embiggen, increasing her body mass, particularly that of her fists and feet. However, she could also embiggen her entire body, and become as big as Ant-Man/Giant-Man.
In the MCU, it looks like she embiggens by increasing the size of her hard-light Noor constructs. It seems she’s also even more powerful than her comics counterpart, since she can also deflect bullets by encasing her whole body in the hard-light Noor constructs.
G. Willow Wilson makes a cameo near the end of the episode during a TikTok montage. She is responsible for c-creating Kamala Khan’s character as she was the first writer to work on Kamala Khan. Her name also appears on a plague in front of Kamala’s school back in Episode 1.
Kamala’s dad tells her the meaning of her name, which translates to “wonder” or “marvel” in Urdu. He’s also the first one to coin the name “Ms. Marvel” since there was never a Ms. Marvel in the MCU. In the comics, Carol Danvers was Ms. Marvel for many years before she became Captain Marvel.
Just before the episode ends, Bruno drops the bombshell that the reason why Kamala can use the Noor is not just because she’s a Djinn or Clandestine, but also because she has a unique MUTATION.
THAT’S RIGHT, KAMALA IS A MUTANT. THE FIRST CONFIRMED MUTANT IN THE MCU.
To bring more credence to this claim, when Bruno drops the bombshell, the iconic X-Men animated series theme can be heard playing in the background for a few seconds, similar to how it also played when Sir Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier appeared in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
In the comics, Kamala has always been an Inhuman, but it looks like the MCU is retconning that and making her a mutant instead.
In a post-credits scene, we see that Kamala’s bangle glows before she suddenly disappears and Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel appears in her place.
This basically confirms the rumour that the bangles are the MCU’s version of the Nega Bands from the comics.
The original Captain Marvel in the comics was the Kree hero named Mar-Vell and the Nega Bands allowed him to switch places with another person who’s already wearing the Nega Bands (in the comics, it was Rick Jones). In the MCU, for some reason, it made Kamala switch places with Carol Danvers, which means it’s probably the Nega Bands.
The post-credits scene also confirms that Kamala will next appear in The Marvels.
Until the next one, excelsior!
