In 2014, she was the Marvel comics editor who collaborated with the writer Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona and editor Steve Wacker to help bring the teenage superhero from jersey city to the life. When the trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series it fellthe style and color of the production really stood out among the often gloomy superhero shows that Wonderful has previously produced.

“The comic was very much a guiding light for us. We needed to make sure it worked on the UCMof course, but we wanted to make sure we had that quirkiness and stylistic distinction that comics did so well,” Amanat said in an interview with entertainment weekly. “We wanted to find our own MCU version.”

One of the big differences between the comics and what we see of Kamala Khan in the trailer is her powers. In the comics, her powers are stretchy and stretchy: she can enlarge parts of herself, expand, and “enlarging herself to pummel a bad guy with a fist the size of a garbage truck.

Amanat addressed the reaction with EW, stating that the powers Khan wields look different because they are different. She also says that she and Willow discussed the change beforehand, and to them, “this made sense.” Changing Khan’s powers was “the right move because there are bigger stories to tell.” Part of this is due to the fact that it is an adaptation.ion, and changing Khan’s powers is about introducing him to the MCU itself, which means giving him different powers that they “feel big in scope and cinematic in a different way.” Especially since Khan is scheduled to appear in the Marvel movie directed by Nia DeCosta. the wonders, currently scheduled to release on July 28, 2023.

Amanat assures readers that despite the cosmic changes, Khan’s powers remain “fun and dynamic… the essence of the powers in the comics is there, both from a metaphorical and visual standpoint.” In response to Kamala Khan’s classic move, Amanat tells him not to worry: “We are doing the enlarged fist.”
