10 Best Modern Age Marvel #1 Comics

If I were to offer a template for bringing fresh ideas, perspectives and images into modern comics, it would be Kamala Khan, AKA Ms Marvel, a female Muslim superhero created by G. Willow Wilson, Sana Amanat, Adrian Alphona, Jamie McKelvie and Stephen Wacker.

The book is ostensibly about a girl who gets superpowers and how she deals with them. The only difference is that the girl must come to terms with her faith and culture concerning these new powers.

What really sets it apart is that the first issue is about Khan and not her connection to the larger Marvel Universe. Instead of telling readers how Capitan America or Iron Man feel about this new superhero the creators focus on her teenage world, with every day problems more important than battling Hydra or the Skrulls.
