“Ms. Marvel” wasn’t as good as I was expecting. Ms. Marvel, the character, wasn’t as awesome as I would have liked. The hard part of this review is the fact that the story did not live up to the hype that has been centered around it. This is an okay start to the series of comments but I do hope for something better in the future. The characters weren’t very interesting to me at all. I am interested to see how the story will continue.
