Weekend Trend | Ms. Marvel Series Delayed

Marvel has postponed its planned comic book limited series Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit, which was timed to thematically tie-in with the upcoming Disney Plus Ms. Marvel streaming show that Marvel Studios has signaled will debut by the end of 2021.

The five-issue series by Samira Ahmed and Andrés Genolet was announced back in June for a September 15 debut, but the publisher has informed retailers that the series' launch has been delayed three months to a new, December 1 debut.

Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit is prose writer Samira Ahmed's debut in comics after a string of hit Young Adult novels including Love, Hate, & Other Filters; Internment; and Mad, Bad, & Dangerous to Know. This new Ms. Marvel series will follow Kamala Khan to Bollywood as she deals with her superpowers malfunctioning AND a surprise doppelganger.

"Fans that have been there from day one will love to see how we're playing around with her powers, exploring them, and maybe pushing them," Ahmed said when the book was originally announced. "I don't want to give any spoilers, but there are gonna be some questions that arise about the source of her powers and what that means."
