Warning! Contains spoilers for Mrs. Marvel.
Marvel Studios Mrs. Marvel is the latest MCU show to hit Disney+ and its delightful roster of characters is packed with some newcomers – here’s every Ms Marvel cast member and where you’ve seen them. Mrs. Marvel follows the story of Kamala Khan, a teenager living in New Jersey who is obsessed with superheroes and prone to get completely lost in daydreams. When an ancient bracelet awakens Kamala’s powers as Mrs. Marvel, it’s her chance to become a superhero. She soon learns to master her strange newfound powers and finds herself in a world she’s not quite ready for.
The Mrs. Marvel series is based on the comics and characters created by Sana Amanat, G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona. As a cartoon character, Kamala Khan hasn’t been around very long, having first appeared in 2013. But her impact on pop culture and Marvel comics was huge, and she quickly developed a loyal following. That was partly because Kamala Khan was the first Pakistani-American Muslim superhero to headline her own comic book series. But it was also due to her being so recognizable as a character.
Of course, that meant that Marvel had to cast just the right person to step into the role of Kamala Khan in Mrs. Marvel† It also required assembling a talented cast around her.
