Summary

Summary

Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! Kamala may be fan-girling out when her favourite (okay maybe Top Five) super hero shows up, but that won't stop her from protecting her hometown. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity for the first time - by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! Every girl wants a puppy, but this one may be too much of a handful, even for a super hero with embiggening powers. Collecting: Ms. Marvel 6-11

Booklist Review

Kamala Kahn is finally getting used to her powers in this second installment of the best-selling series, but she's beginning to learn that the intricacies of being Ms. Marvel are a bit beyond her. Luckily, help arrives in the nick of time when Wolverine appears on the scene. Together, they rescue a kidnapped teenager whose very life force powers a machine. But that's just the beginning: the malicious Inventor, a clone of Thomas Edison with a little cockatiel accidentally mixed in, has capitalized on society's disdain for teens and gotten a group of kids to believe they're only worth the electricity their bodies generate. Kamala knows that's bunk, and in an empowering speech, she convinces her peers there's more to teenagers than what baby boomers claim. Alphona's distinctive panels make great use of exaggerated angles and distorted figures, and his line work, more intricate than most comic-book artists', packs each page with captivating, tongue-in-cheek detail. Kamala continues to be a unique voice in the pantheon of Marvel superheroes, and, happy to say, she'll surely be back for more.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 6 Up-The second installment of the "Ms. Marvel" series picks up with boisterous Kamala Khan continuing her hunt for Jersey City's newest villain, The Inventor. She stumbles upon a suspicious sewer drain that leads her to deadly robots, giant alligators, her hero Wolverine, and none other than the nemesis himself-a cockatiel-human hybrid, genetically cloned from Thomas Edison's DNA. Kamala also discovers that her newly acquired powers are far from a fluke and that she might be superhuman after all, thanks to some more familiar faces in the Marvel Universe. In a disturbing final standoff, the source of The Inventor's "clean energy" is revealed, leading our heroine to realize that her generation needs a voice now more than ever. Packed with just as much action, snark, and plot twists as its predecessor, this second entry might be even more enjoyable than the first, as it begins to tackle the fraught concept of "the new generation," and whether technology keeps teens plugged into the world, or tuned out. Wyatt and Alphona's vibrant and textured artwork complements Kamala's brave, yet compassionate nature, while perfectly showcasing her "elastic" talents. VERDICT Fans of Ms. Marvel will not be disappointed in this exciting continuation. A worthy addition to any library's comic collection.-Ashleigh Williams, School Library Journal © Copyright 2015.
