We kick off our read with the Giant-Sized Ms. Marvel #1 which is tied into the crossover event by marvel House of M (I will be review this at a later date). To quickly recap what went down in the House of M for those of you that haven't been able to sink your adamantium claws into it yet. The Scarlet Which Wanda Maximoff had a mental break down which lead to the two Marvel events Avengers: Disassembled and The House of M. The House of M is an alternate reality that has Mutant population dominating the planet. We find Ms. Marvel in a battle with the Traveler, keep that in mind it will be important through out the Ms. Marvel story. After defeating the Traveler, Ms. Marvel meets her publicist and begins trying to get her name out there as a solo here which allows us to roll into the Ms. Marvel story.
Ms. Marvel kicks off with a little back story explain the days she spent in the air force and leads us to her doing what she does best, saving some little children. After kicking some bad guy booty, Carol sits down with her publicist to discuss things which Carol seems to have little to no interest in followed by a lunch with a good friend Jessica Drew known to the Marvel universe as Spider Woman. Later that evening whilst on patrol Ms. Marvel spots a falling object from the sky and decides to chase after it. While en route she gets cold feet and calls for some back up. The back up she calls is none other than the First Avenger Captain America, who we find out is a little busy at the moment. Wen she arrives in the small town of Spaulding, Georgia, Ms. Marvel finds the town infested with Brood. That means Brood crushing time and queue action sequence! After battling the Brood for about an Issue and a half...Carol discovers they were chasing a creature called Cru. Queue the next battle and end with a bang.
Ms Marvel wakes up in issue 3 in the town formally known as Spaulding, Georgia. The Fantastic Four arrive on scene to find out what exactly went down in Georgia and they get Carol back to the big apple for only to be bombarded by her publicist and the press. He we go rolling into issue 4 with a little bit of a back story on the Traveler, which is awesome cause I had no idea who this crazy @#$% is. After the back story we are brought back to present time where the bruised and battled Ms. Marvel is dealing with the Press. While in the middle of the interview that Crazy Jeff Bridges look-a-like interrupts it and yet again another action scene Woo Hoo!! Except the Traveler gets all weird on us and doesn't really give a good fight. Enter Dr. Strange the only man who can make heads or tails of this situation. After examination and a whole bunch of magic talk, and I mean a whole bunch we see that the Traveler has an alternative power...playing possum. He gets a hold of what he was looking for and zaps Ms. Marvel and he to an alternate reality and we roll into issue 5 where she combats this threat and ultimately wins and gets back home. When she arrives in NYC she gets a phone call from Mr. Tony Stark asking if she has seen Cap and that a Registration Act has gone into effect. She replies "No" and as she walks in the room there is Cap waiting for her. End Issue 5 and begin the suspense leading into Marvel's Civil War.
Overall this is a great way to start a a series cause I was hooked and followed it to the end. Plus she's hot that's all you really need right?
