G. Willow Wilson
is the author of the new Ms. Marvel
series that is coming out Feb. 5th. Wired interview here.

Nothing’s going to sparkle; she’s not going to float. I wanted her to have something kinetic and physical that would look fun on the page. There was a lot of back and forth about what her power set should be, and we settled on making her a polymorph.
And if you wondered if this is some kind of stunt, well... plenty of superheros have faiths.
