Ms. Marvel gets a punk rock makeover courtesy of Spider-Verse

The following article contains spoilers for Spider Punk #2 by VC’s Cody Ziglar, Justin Mason, Jim Charalampidis and Travis Lanham, on sale now from Marvel Comics.

The Spider-Band has a new member, with the latest issue of Marvel Comics Spider Punk featuring the Earth-138 version of Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel.

Spider Punk #2 is written by Cody Ziglar, illustrated by Justin Mason, colored by Jim Charalampidis, and lettered Travis Lanham. Picking up where issue #1 left off, the comic sees the Spider-Band – Hobie Brown/Spider-Man, aka Spider-Punk; Karl Morningdew/Captain Anarchy; and Riri Williams/RiotHeart – locked in battle with a Misfits-inspired variant of Taskmaster, as well as Kraven & The Hunters. When our heroes find themselves in a difficult situation, their friend Kamala Khan arrives on the scene to lend a hand, literally.

Created by Sana Amanat, Stephen Wacker, G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona, and Jamie McKelvie, Marvel’s Earth-616 mainline version of Kamala Khan first appeared in 2013. Captain Marvel #14. Kamala became the fourth hero to take on the Ms. Marvel name, following Carol Danvers, Sharon Ventura, and Karla Sofen. Kamala will soon make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Marvel Studios’ original Disney+ series Ms. Marvelpremiering on June 8.

Meanwhile, Ziglar and Mason’s version of Kamala Khan certainly seems at home in Earth-138. She is seen sporting a grungy take on her signature outfit, with a flannel tied around her waist and a guitar slung over her shoulder. On her right hand, she also has brass knuckles with the word “embeggen” written backwards, an obvious nod to her inhuman powers.

That said, it remains to be seen if this version of Kamala is actually named after Ms. Marvel. Notably, while the Earth-138 version of Hobie Brown is simply known as Spider-Man in his universe, he’s recently gotten used to the Spider-Punk moniker – much to Karl’s annoyance. Speaking of Karl, rather than just being his universe’s version of Captain America, he goes by Captain Anarchy, an apparent reference to the Anti-Flag song of the same name. Finally, the Earth-138 version of Riri is known as RiotHeart, as opposed to her Earth-616 counterpart, who goes by Ironheart.
