If you’ve been wondering if the changes done to Disney+’s version of Ms. Marvel are due to the upcoming Fantastic Four film, this may outweigh that fear. When we first heard rumors of her getting a new power set, there were quite a few concerns that the changes might be a bit too drastic and take away from the character.
Her Embiggening powers were theorized to be too close to that of Mr. Fantastic. Still, according to writer and producer Sana Amanat, who is also the character’s co-creator, that wasn’t the case. In an interview with The Direct, she talked about what was the true decision on changing her powers that are not of fantastical origin.
Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t think so. I mean, from my understanding, it was kind of linked to the type of story that we wanted to tell with Kamala, and not only linkage to other MCU events, but also to the sense of history that she has and the relationship to her family, linking the powers to her family’s past. I think that was really the bigger idea.Sana Amanat
So, if you’ve wondered if that was the reason, it seems that her connection to Captain Marvel, especially with her upcoming appearance in The Marvels, is very likely the main cause for this connection. The new powers are also still paying tribute to the originals with some added benefits. We’ll see how it may evolve in the future and who knows if an Inhuman connection is still set up potentially with future episodes. For now, it remains speculation.
