Ideal Wave – Ms. Marvel

Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. It seems like every month we have a Marvel movie or TV series releasing, doesn’t it? Well, tomorrow is the release of Marvel’s latest Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel. I absolutely adore Kamala Khan. She is such a fun character to read. Some people don’t like her because they think she is “Woke”. They clearly have never read any of her comics. Yes, she is of Pakistani descent with a Muslim background but that is never the focus of the character. She is an ordinary America girl, who is a fan of all thing geekdom, that just happens to be Muslim. If you think that makes her a bad character, then you have never read a Marvel comic ever.

Anyway, with her show launching I decided to do an Ideal wave based on her exploits. As always I have included some rules:

  • 6-8 figures per wave. No more. No less.
  • Some version of the Title hero must be in it. In this case, Kamala Khan
  • 1 to 3 Female per wave.
  • 1 or 2 Villains per wave, but these could be female as well.
  • 1 or 2 brand new characters that have never been done before
  • 1 or 2 remakes. The Remakes can also be new costumes as Like Classic Spider-man or Iron Spider.
  • Each wave most have a Theme i.e. Spider-man can include Street Level heroes or Iron Man can include Tech Heroes and villains. However, there are no strict rules if you want to include characters outside the theme

The Theme for this wave: Inhumans, Marvel Rising, Captain Marvel characters.

As for why I picked each:

  • Ms. Marvel – I was going to use the MCU version for Kamala in this wave but they revealed that figure last week and I wasn’t going to say Hasbro should release the old figure again (for the third time realy). Kamala has only one other costume really and that is the Kree Nanotech suit. This would require a heavy retool of the classic suit.
  • Carol Danvers – In a wave about a girl that admires Carol Danvers and decided to inherit her codename, it seems fitting to include a Classic Ms. Marvel in this wave. This would use the Moonstone mold with new double-jointed arms.
  • Inferno – For this wave, I decided to include not only an Inhuman but also a co-star from Marvel’s Rising animated movie, which being Inferno. This would use the Spidey 2099 build with new parts and flame effects.
  • Patriot – Speaking of Marvel’s Rising, another character from that movie is the latest Patriot. This would use a whole new sculpt. I don’t know how they would do the shield but if they can make it so you can ride on it, it would be great.
  • Karnak– For the next character, since Kamala is an Inhuman and trained under Medusa, I had to include one of the Royal Family in the wave. I decided on Karnak because the other just didn’t seem to suit this wave. I think the Pizza Spidey would suit him best.
  • Nitro – for the villain of the wave, I decided to include the reason there are so many Captain Marvels in the Marvel Universe, Nitro. The exploding villain has been asked for by many people for years and would suit this wave perfectly. This would use the Spider-UK mold.
  • Red Dagger – I was really stuck for the final figure. However, I found out that Red Dagger was in this series and looked at his design and said yes. We have the perfect body for him. That body of course is the MCU Death Dealer body. Yes, it is a bit more detailed than the comics, but it actually works for this character. Plus, it has the same daggers on the belt that Red Dagger has.
  • Baf: Griffin– for the BAF I was initially going to go with a Kree or Skrull character but decided against that because we have Secret Invasion later this year (or early next year). Instead, I decided to go with an out-there character and went with Griffin. I think many people wish for this to be done. This would mostly be a whole new sculpt.

Well, that is what I would want from a Ms. Marvel wave. What do you think and what would you put in a Ms. Marvel Wave? Let me know in the comments below or on any of the social media sites.
