1.Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona.
Kamala Khan was an entirely normal Pakistani American teen with a deep love of all things Avengers, until one night she stumbled into a fog of Terrigen Mist and was transformed. With new and powerful abilities, Kamala suddenly finds herself pretending to be one of the superheroes she so admires: Ms. Marvel (who now goes by Captain Marvel). But is she just pretending? Kamala will never be Carol Danvers, but she has her own powers and her own strong sense of justice. As she struggles to make sense of her new abilities and to balance her life as a regular teen with her life as a superhero, Kamala realizes that being a superhero is more difficult than she ever realized– but also more rewarding. And best of all? She’s a pretty awesome hero in her own right, and she doesn’t have to pretend to be Carol Danvers, or anyone else, to prove it.
This comic has won several awards, and deserves every single one of them. Kamala is a breath of fresh air! She brings perspectives and points of view that many readers will find compelling and relatable, especially young people struggling to find their place in the world and fight for what’s right without compromising their beliefs. Kamala teaches tolerance and love both through words and action, and those are things we very much need more of in our society today.
