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.

You don’t see nearly as many successful legacy characters in Marvel as you do in DC, but Captain Marvel (and Ms. Marvel) makes for one of Marvel’s strongest progressions through time.

Here we are, 9 issues in following the adventures of Kamala as she continues to combat against the power of the inventor and his crazy machinery and monsters. Surprisingly enough, we’ve gone this far without Kamala getting bogged down in some form of crossover or event tie-in. Even Inhumanity, the event you would think this title would have been attached to. And subtracting the issues with Wolverine, this title has also remained free of constantly rotating guest stars to boast (though I’m still waiting for the inevitable crossover/guest-star-appearance-issues with Captain Marvel). So is this ninth issue just as good as the rest?
