One property from Marvel Comics that we knew we’d see sooner or later in live-action form was Ms. Marvel, though it was expected it would be after Captain Marvel came out since that’s the inspiration. The reveal of the character getting a Disney+ series back at D23 in August 2020 was welcome news as it would provide for some expanded time and it also at the time came with the confirmation that the character will be in the films as well.
With the character set to appear in The Marvels, which is set for a February 17th, 2023 debut, Ms. Marvel saw a June 8th,2022 debut. This discussion post is for the first five episodes and connections that can be seen in other shows and movies. If you want to talk about a piece from the comic that may be considered a spoiler, please use the spoiler tags if at all possible.
