New Information Revealed About Ms. Marvel’s Death in Amazing Spider-Man #26
Amazing Spider-Man #26 Preview
A preview for Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man #26 reveals new information about Ms. Marvel’s death. The issue is written by Zeb Wells and illustrated by artist John Romita Jr.
The preview begins with a flashback set nine months in the past, where Kamala Khan is seen interviewing for a position at Oscorp Industries. When asked why she wants to work there, Kamala responds, “I’ve recently become aware of [Norman Osborn’s]…work. I won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.”
The preview then jumps to the present, where Ms. Marvel joins Spider-Man and Gold Goblin in a fight against a villain named Benjamin Rabin/The Emissary. Rabin previously transported Peter and Mary Jane Watson to an alternate, post-apocalyptic world that Mary Jane became trapped in for several years, which eventually led her to fall in love, leave Peter for the man named Paul, and adopt two children with him.
Ms. Marvel’s Death Confirmed
Marvel has confirmed that Ms. Marvel will die in Amazing Spider-Man #26, which is being promoted as the “most shocking issue of Amazing Spider-Man in 50 years.” News of Ms. Marvel’s death leaked on the morning of May 16, 2023, before being confirmed by Marvel later that day. While some readers were nonplused by the news due to Kamala’s likely quick resurrection, others expressed frustration and anger over Ms. Marvel being “fridged” in a different character’s series, among other concerns.
Fallen Friend: The Death of Ms. Marvel (by Mark Waid, Saladin Ahmed, and G. Willow Wilson) is set to release in July 2023 and will see the Marvel Universe mourn the loss of Kamala Khan. The publisher announced that Fallen Friend: The Death of Ms. Marvel will be a crucial chapter in the Marvel mythos and serve as both a farewell for Ms. Marvel and a glimpse of her death’s impact on all of Marvel’s heroes.
Amazing Spider-Man #26 releases on May 31, 2023, from Marvel.
