Ms Marvel has been subject to quite the controversy in the last few months online. The main reason for this discussion has been the rumour that Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan won’t be having her powers from the comics, but rather something completely different. Kamala Khan in the comics has her origins tied to being an Inhuman. She has powers similar to that of Mr Fantastic where she can stretch her hands. Ms Marvel can also change her disguise by altering her face. So exactly what is being changed about her? Well a whole lot.

Well according to this link that gives us our first look at Ms Marvel merchandise, her powers are described as being crystal. Which further gives credence to the rumour that Ms Marvel will be making crystal like constructs in the show, which is a bit weird to be honest.

With her having crystal like powers and being able to make constructs will basically turn her into Marvel’s version of Green Lantern. With this we can even expect a change in her origins because again, in the comics her powers are heavily tied into those of Inhumans.
I don’t know how the show is going to work around this as they are fundamentally changing the most important aspect of Kamala. But… It's Marvel Studios here and we do have to give them the benefit of the doubt. They seem to be in control of whatever they are doing, so hopefully it works out for the best.
