An avid fan of Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan’s greatest dream as a 16 year old is obviously not securing a good spot in a good college and get married as soon as possible. She just wants to attend Avengercon, the single greatest fan event in the honor of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Then there’s the usual tug of war – conservative immigrant parents don’t want their daughter to attend a late night event. So Kamala Khan sneaks out of her house and attends the event anyway. But there’s a twist. Midway through Ms. Marvel Episode 1, Kamala Khan comes across one of her grandmother’s belongings – a mysterious bracelet.

She scolds Kamala Khan for living in a world of fantasy rather than ‘focusing on her story’. Muneeba Khan then compares her daughter to Kamala’s grandmother. According to her, Kamala is walking down the same path, focusing on dreams and fantasies and giving up on herself. Now that we know Kamala’s grandmother was somewhere right since the bracelets in her possession indeed work, could it mean something else too?

When she’s on stage, the bracelet allows her to project energy constructs of varying shapes and sizes, from a small platform to climb on to a huge bulking arm, the bracelet grants Kamala Khan a host of abilities. But the most important part in the episode that confirms this theory is a very particular scene.

When the Bracelet activates, Kamala Khan is momentarily transported into another plane of existence where she sees a lot of figures looking back at her. This scene could very well be a hint at the Kree Supreme Intelligence, composed of the greatest kree minds in history. is Kamala Khan’s bracelet housing a connection to the Kree Supreme Intelligence, which would only allow someone of Kree origin to unlock the bracelet’s ability?
