They discuss the comic origins of Kamala Khan: Marvel’s first leading Muslim superhero, the real-life origins of Toronto-based actress Iman Vellani (and how she may be the most perfectly cast character in the MCU), the show’s presentation of Pakistani-American culture amidst coming-of-age struggles, and how the series may tie into the rest of the MCU.
Kamala Khan, a teenager growing up in Jersey City and mega fan of the Avengers, feels a little out of place at school and sometimes even at home. She is determined to attend Avengercon, even if her parents won’t allow it. But what starts off as a Captain Marvel cosplay competition takes an unexpected turn – is she becoming one of the super heroes she’s always looked up to? (Synopsis from Disney+)
