Kamala Khan is my favorite new character in the Marvel Universe during the Marvel NOW era (2012 to 2015), with creators G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona putting a spin on the Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel legacy and creating a modern teen hero in the style of Peter Parker.
I originally lumped Kamala into the CBH combo Captain Marvel / Ms. Marvel reading order, but at this point Kamala’s a very big deal!

The first four volumes of Ms. Marvel by Wilson and Alphona are near perfect comics, and essential reading for any Marvel comics fan. I include the run on my 100 favorite comics from 1998 to 2015!
The Last Days arc leads directly into Secret Wars (2015), which is my favorite Marvel event of all time. You’ll find Kamala in various Battleworld books, primarily:
Kamala the Avenger!
Issues: Avengers #0 to #6
Following Secret Wars Kamala is launched into a role as an Avenger. It’s a strange time for the team, half legacy Avengers and half up and coming teenagers. All in all, I find this run pretty disappointing, and expect a better fit for Kamala with the iconic team in the future.
