In a recent series of Instagram posts from concept artist and illustrator Mushk Rizvi, early concepts for what Kamala’s mask looked like can be seen, including some that looked like her final mask, and some that simply covered her eyes or her entire head. According to Rizvi, these were early concepts for what Kamala might use for masks before getting her final option.
Elsewhere, Rizvi shared some early looks at Kamala and her use of hardlight. In the post, Rizvi noted that early ideas for the power included having Kamala emulate her powers from different video games that she played, which ended up not making the final version of the television series.
Ms. Marvel stars newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, marking the live-action debut of the fan-favorite Marvel character. Joining Vellani are Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha.
“The series introduces Kamala Khan—a 16-year-old Pakistani American from Jersey City,” reads the official synopsis. “An aspiring artist, an avid gamer, and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers—and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world—that is, until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to.”
