Ms. Marvel concept art reveals some wildly different mask designs

An MCU concept artist shared early-production Ms. Marvel artwork that revealed some significantly different design variations for Kamala’s mask.

Early concept MCU art for Mrs Miracle has revealed some extremely different designs for the superhero’s mask. Iman Vellani stars as the title character, a Jersey City high school student who is imbued with cosmic powers thanks to her great-grandmother’s mysterious bracelets. Released in June, the six-episode series received near-universal praise for its writing, visual style, and impressive performances, making it the #1 MCU entry on Rotten Tomatoes.

In the original Marvel Comics, Kamala’s superhero suit was designed and made from her own clothing. Her best friend, Bruno Carrelli, then used her design as the basis for an overhaul to create a more malleable suit. This version of the costume became Kamala’s most iconic outfit and the template for the MCU version of Ms. Marvel. Although the origins of the bracelets, mask, and costume differed from the comics, the television series stayed relatively true to Kamla’s original appearance.

concept artist Mushk Rizvi recently hit social media and shared early Mrs Miracle Art revealing some extremely different designs for Kamala’s mask. Rizvi explained that she was tasked with designing some preliminary masks for Kamala to use before the character received her final mask. The images feature red Captain Marvel-inspired masks, complete with a mohican and full-face covering that looks more like something Brock Rumlow/Crossbones or Taskmaster would wear.

Since the designs were for the masks Kamala was to use before receiving her real mask and donning her final outfit, these most likely would not have been considered for Ms. Marvel’s final sanctioned appearance. Even though Mrs MiracleThe design of the MCU suit differs slightly from the source material, her outfit still resembles her original Marvel Comics costume. A complete costume change would likely have sparked fan backlash against the show, though thanks to a vocal minority of unhappy viewers, that happened anyway.

Even though Mrs Miracle Fans rejoiced at the news that Kamala Khan would be introduced to the MCU and given her own show, many comics fans were disappointed with the massive change in her powers. In the comics, Kamala gained her powers from the Terrigen Mist, which activated her Inhuman genes. In the television series, Kamala received her powers from enhanced bangles and later revealed that Kamala is a mutant. If the series received such a violent backlash for the significant change in her powers, drastically adjusting elements of the heroine’s costume on her first outing would certainly contribute to the hostile reaction. However, Mrs Miracle retained the original aesthetic of Kamala’s comic book counterpart, resulting in a welcome faithful recreation.
