“After this week’s episode of Ms. Marvel, I cannot wait to see what happens next and how it sets up what hopefully will be a great finale to a great series,” says Annlyel James
There have been six MCU shows so far and Ms. Marvel has proven every week it’s the best series since Loki. In fact, I think it might be better than Loki. The cultural representation presented in this show has been some of the best I’ve seen in any American entertainment. This week the story forced us to travel overseas to Karachi, Pakistan, a city I’ve never even heard of before. There we finally got to meet Aramis Knight’s Kareem/Red Dagger.
As someone who knows next to nothing about Kamala Khan, this series has been an absolute rollercoaster of wow. Her story is so intriguing. It’s fitting perfectly into the tapestry that is the MCU while also setting up potential connections to the upcoming She-Hulk series. That’s cool.
I think the only so-so thing about this fourth episode was the fact that it felt like it needed five more minutes to breathe. Towards the end, it felt like the pacing was a little off to include this huge action sequence, which was totally fun by the way. I loved seeing Kamala in action with Red Dagger.
And that ending! When the scene cut to credits I was honestly a little devastated. This show has been so interesting but now it feels like we’re just finally getting somewhere. I absolutely cannot wait to see what happens next week and how it sets up what hopefully will be a great finale to a great series.
I can say this. I am positively a Ms. Marvel fan now.
