Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! If Kamala can stop fan-girling out about meeting her favorite super hero, that is. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity--by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. Kamala bands together with some unlikely heroes to stop the maniacal villain before he does real damage, but has she taken on more than she can handle? And how much longer can Ms. Marvel's life take over Kamala Khan's? Kamala Khan continues to prove why she's the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is! -- Page [4] of cover.

I think the second book is still brilliant but goes into the normal marvel sort of thing, which is a bit disappointing because I felt in the first book it was very different to the normal marvel l.
Still a good book ignoring that factor, a must read for everyone who likes super hero's!

This maintains the same quality as the first volume. It is a more a graphic novel about a super hero rather than the standard superhero comic. The art style is great, incorporating more emotional styles to give the story a depth and play off the nerdiness of the main character.

Kamala Khan is a 16 year old in born in Jersey City to Pakistani immigrants. Though respectful of her heritage, Kamala always felt different; she had nerdy interests and did not meet the white Eurocentric standards of beauty. Now she is the newest and more adorable super hero on the planet.

I love that in volume 2 Ms. Marvel starts interacting with a larger world of aliens and mutants as well as taking on her first villain. Also, that Wolverine cameo is so utterly perfect that I couldn't stop smiling at their interactions. I found the message of the last few chapters to be a little too over saturated, but otherwise this was a great follow up to Volume 1.

This one didn't grab me as much as the first. Maybe it was the bird villain, maybe the art was a bit different, maybe there wasn't enough of Kamala herself in it. Who knows.

This series is just great. While Ms Marvel is coming into her own as a hero, see get to fan girl over some of her hero idles (great moment with wolverine). This one carries a great message toward Generation Y, they may do things differently and the adults might not like it (that's a story as old as time), but they still have a lot to contribute to society. Great recommendation for anyone that like graphics in their teens or older.

I definitely liked this novel more than the first one in the series. I am glad I stuck with it. The linkage to Wolverine was pretty cool.

"My name is Lockjaw and I like hugs"

This second volume of the new Ms. Marvel is just like the above quote from its story, ridiculous, adorable, unrepentingly fun.

The characters are all developed, and the writer continually chooses the smart (harder working) character development. None of the primary characters are in danger of becoming a stereotype.

I love the art, but I understand that the scribbly almost cartoony style isn't everyone's cup of tea. The story draws on some fairly obscure elements of the Marvel universe (Lockjaw!), but I have introduced this to people entirely unfamiliar with the more obscure bits that the story uses and they weren't confused.

I can't recommend this highly enough.

For today's generation, this is a great read. The main character speaks the reader's language. It was hard to read this volume and not smile. I'm looking forward to reading volume three.

The story only makes sense if you know a lot of backstory, her teleporting dog will make no sense even if you know a lot of backstory... I could however see a kid who likes really random things loving the heck out of this.
