Mrs. Marvel is known by comic book fans for her “embiggening” power. She can grow and stretch parts of her body as a means of maneuvering terrain and fighting. However, the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduces a version of Kamala Khan which won’t have a power that is referred to as “embiggening,” at least not right away, and looks completely different by comparison. Rather than Kamala’s body parts enlarging, the powerful design sees a bright, crystallized extension of Ms. Marvel come in. Making this change was something that a lot of consideration went into and something some fans think was done to avoid similarities to Mr. Stretching ability. Fantastic.
“Well, yeah, I mean when we came into the project, it was written in the script that she had a ‘hard light,’ without really describing too much of it,” Mrs. Marvel executive producer Adil El Arbi said ComicBook.com. “It was a challenge then to try to design it, to get it, obviously with the whole production team. What does that mean? How do you translate it or, in fact, adapt and put a kind of homage to the same powers she had. In the comic? It was different. She was also very cool, that light effect and all that.We are still trying to make that tribute as she still had the shape of the embiggen hands.In episode 2, she has all of the sudden bursting out of her nose with those powers and she doesn’t rule and her body changes and all that. So all the things that were very important in the comic but you see that there too. , and even if it’s different, you’ll still see a lot of similarities. “
In comics, Kamala Khan has Inhuman powers that have been activated by Terrigen Mist. Kamala’s powers rooted in Inhuman stories in comics came at a time when the Inhumans had received a massive push in publishing. The characters, however, were not used by Marvel Studios with the exception Mount Anson portraying Black Bolt from an alternate universe in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now, it seems that the MCU is changing Kamala’s origin story as she arrives at the MCU’s continuity before any stories of inhuman characters in the universe have been incorporated.
Since the promotional materials for Mrs. Marvel began to release, part of the admiring base was focused on the power set and its design is changed to Mrs. Marvel in this adaptation of comics to real-life combat. Theories and conjecture quickly began to circulate with suspicion that Ms. Marvel has been changed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to make them look different from Mr. Marvel’s. Fantastic. A Fantastic Four a movie is on its way and Reed Richards recently appeared in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The alternate universal version of the character was played by John Krasinskibringing his tense skills to the big screen for the first time under the umbrella of Marvel Studios.
Fans aren’t the only ones wondering if Mr. Fantastic is the one to do yet Fantastic Four film is the reason why Marvel Studios decided to change the powers of Kamala Khan for Mrs. Marvel. El Arbi and Fallah asked the same question. “We can say we asked Kevin that question [Feige], ‘Hey, is this for Mr. Fantastic?’ ‘Arbi confessed. “Kevin said, ‘I’m not saying anything.'”
