Disney+ Ms. Marvel Would Prefer You Forgot The Inhumans Ever Happened

In a little under two weeks, "Ms. Marvel" will officially premiere on Disney+, marking the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of the popular Inhuman superhero created by Sana Amanat. But there's something that the Mickey Mouse company would actually prefer you forgot about Kamala Khan's (Iman Vellani) time in "The Inhumans" universe — something that changes the character completely. 

In the comics, Khan's run as Ms. Marvel begins when she is exposed to the infamous Terrigen Mists mutagen, which alters her genes and gives her the power to shapeshift and control her molecular structure (via Marvel). She ends up taking over the mantle of Ms. Marvel following Carol Danvers' name change to Captain Marvel, and the rest is history. 

When the first episode of the new series drops, fans are going to immediately notice some major differences with the Disney+ version of the character. Hints about these changes have caused some fans to wonder if Marvel Studios has decided to move away from "The Inhumans" comic series and most of its subject matter. Of course, such a decision would run completely in the face of the recent appearance of Inhuman hero Black Bolt (Anson Mount) in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" and ABC's 2017 run of its "Inhumans" series. Here's how things will be different.

Ms. Marvel's powers will come from bracelets in the Disney+ series

In what is a drastic change from "The Inhumans" comics, the Disney+ version of Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel) — as shown in the trailers and teaser clips — will be endowed with tremendous, Green Lantern-like abilities that ultimately come from a pair of bracelets she discovers in her attic. Instead of stretching and altering the molecules in her body, Iman Vellani's Ms. Marvel appears to be manipulating cosmic energy and using it to unleash powerful attacks and other things, such as steps to walk on while in the air. 

With Marvel already choosing to ditch the ABC "Inhumans" show, it appears that the alteration of Ms. Marvel's powers and how she got them could be the final nail in the comic series' creative coffin. Yes, Black Bolt shows up in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," but those who've actually seen the Sam Raimi sequel know to take that appearance with a grain of salt. 

"All of this Blackbolt praise just for him to never appear again in the MCU and Inhumans like Ms. Marvel to be retconned as never being inhuman," blasted Twitter user @BurniesBurner on May 29, garnering more than 95 likes. "Marvel has no plans with the Inhumans," tweeted @hartattack9830, "especially how they changed up the origin and powers of their most popular Inhuman, Ms. Marvel." 

It looks like fans will just have to wait until "Ms. Marvel" drops on Disney+ on June 8 to find out more.
