Fans have been waiting for a long time for Marvel to introduce the Mutants and when it was hinted that they were being introduced in the MCU via the show Ms. Marvel the joy of the fans had no bounds.


However, when the Disney+ show revealed that Kamala Khan was not an inhuman, like in the comics, but is a clandestine, many fans were left disappointed. Further, when it was revealed that she was also a Mutant, many decried Marvel for their poorly planned Mutant Twist.

Why Ms. Marvel’s Mutant Debut Was a Huge Disappointment

1. Complicates Kamala Khan’s Origin

The show, Ms. Marvel, excessively complicates Kamala Khan’s origin when compared to the comics. She is revealed to be a Clandestine and a Mutant. She being both a Mutant and a Clandestine overly complicates her origin and this was totally unnecessary in the wider scheme of things.

Kamala Khan’s Mutant status revelation has been criticized by fans. It turns out that this Mutant status revelation was not planned from the beginning of the Disney+ show and was decided midway. This was revealed in a recent interview by head writer and executive producer Bisha K. Ali.

2. She Could Have Introduced The Inhumans To Audiences

Kamala Khan as an Inhuman could have been an excellent vehicle to introduce the Inhumans to audiences in the MCU. However, now that she is declared to be a Mutant, this opportunity is missed. Her being an Inhuman was a great opportunity to feature the Inhumans in the MCU.

What does Marvel have in Mind? Time would tell. What would be the Inhuman’s future in the MCU? Their cameo in Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness was popular and many thought that Marvel would build upon it and seize the opportunity. What do you think?
