One Book One Campus: Ms. Marvel #1: No Normal

From the Book

"It's a special name. Kamal means 'perfection' in Arabic. . . That's why we gave you your name. You don't have to be someone else to impress anybody. You are perfect just the way you are."
― G. Willow Wilson, Ms. Marvel #1

"Who am I? It seems like an easy question. And then I realize... Maybe what I said to those cops wasn't a joke. Maybe the name belongs to whoever has the courage to fight. And so I tell them. I tell them who I am."
― G. Willow Wilson, Ms. Marvel #1
