Yeah I guess I should have checked that out by now.

I'm not on the Ms. Marvel bus, I guess.

There is some strong character building, and some subtle character types and interactions  -- in that regard I'm impressed.

But as a superhero book I think it fails. Not only is much of the subtext stuff - validity of youth - super heavy handed, it's not very compelling, and none of the ways they're showing it is novel. I also tend to think the 'funny' / nerdy quips aren't actually clever. You can't compare it to something like Hawkeye, which is stronger on every level.

It's a strong character piece but I think you're going to start to see the book lose steam as none of the plots go anywhere, and I think Wilson is going to have some very serious problems expanding out in the superhero sub-genre. Which isn't a bad thing at all, as I think she'll probably end up doing her own kind of book, but I can already see that she's going to have a little BKV -- she'll not be very successful in superhero comics but on the back of Ms. Marvel I suspect she'll gain enough of a following to sustain a couple of creator owned books.

For some reason I like the Avengers books with Cannonball, Smasher and Sunspot in them.
