by  in Comic News Comment

In the two years since her first Marvel Comics appearance, Ms. Marvel has saved New Jersey from the millennial-hating Inventor and the gentrifying Dr. Faustus. She’s gone on to protect her city during the incursions of “Secret Wars” and has even joined the Avengers. So what’s next on the teen Muslim American hero’s agenda? According to Stitch Kingdom, Kamala will take on bullying in a new 128 page chapter book titled “Ms. Marvel: Fists of Fury.”

Marvel Press announced the new book with the following synopsis:

Ms. Marvel, a.k.a. Kamala Khan, is a teenage Muslim American from Jersey City, New Jersey. After being enveloped in Terrigen Mists, Kamala now has super powers, which she uses to stop villains, just like her favorite super heroes! This story will focus on bullying due to gender and background.

Though the synopsis doesn’t go heavily into detail, it promises some discussion on sexism and racism, which is very much in line with the character’s adventures in her comic series from G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona and Takeshi Miyazawa. No writer has yet been announced for “Ms. Marvel: Fists of Fury.”

“Ms. Marvel: Fists of Fury” has a tentative release date of October 3, 2017.
