Kamala Khan has already conquered comics in a short time — and now she’s moving to animation. CBR News has confirmed with Marvel Television that Marvel Comics’ current “Ms. Marvel” will be featured in the upcoming third season of “Avengers Assemble,” which has been retitled “Avengers: Ultron Revolution.”
In the official announcement released on Monday, “Ultron Revolution” was stated to feature “the help of heroes like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and Ms. Marvel.” When a commenter on the CBR Community speculated the animated series could potentially draw from a prior interpretation of Ms. Marvel, Marvel’s VP, Current Animation Stephen Wacker clarified that it was indeed Kamala. Additionally, CBR has confirmed that the Captain Marvel of “Ultron Revolution” is indeed Carol Danvers, as depicted currently in Marvel’s publishing line and as will be seen on the big screen in 2018’s “Captain Marvel” film from Marvel Studios.
Created by writer G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona, Wacker (then a Marvel editor) and editor Sana Amanat, Kamala Khan first debuted in 2013’s “Captain Marvel” #14, before starring in her own critically acclaimed solo series early the following the year. A rare example of both a Muslim and Pakistani American superhero in North American comic books, the character quickly gained mainstream attention for being a positive example of increasing diversity in the comics industry, along with a loyal fanbase enthusiastic for its compelling, all-ages stories.
“Avengers: Ultron Revolution” is scheduled to debut in 2016. Here’s the official description:
In season three of “Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution,” the Avengers are not only shocked by the return of a vengeful Ultron, but they also encounter new threats like Baron Zemo, the Masters of Evil, the Inhumans, and the futuristic Kang the Conqueror. It’s only with the help of heroes like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and Ms. Marvel that they have a chance of surviving an all-out Marvel super hero Civil War.
