Iman Vellani plays Kamala Khan in the MCU’s latest Disney+ streaming series. Mrs Miracle. In the show, the teenage heroine finds herself in possession of a mysterious bracelet that is worn on her wrist. When equipped, Kamala unleashes fantastic superpowers and gives her the ability to create constructs of hard light. And of course, as a huge fan of the Avengers, young Ms. Khan is obsessed with a certain Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, whom she looks up to and considers an inspiration.

Warning – The rest of this article contains spoilers for Mrs Miracle Episode 6, “No Normal”.

In the mid-credits scene of Mrs Miracle‘s finale, as Kamala collapsed onto her bed, presumably after a hard day of crime-fighting, the bangle began to glow. In an unexpected twist, Kamala disappeared in a messy string of lights, leaving a confused and shocked Carol Danvers in her place, with a surprise cameo from Brie Larson.

Now, many fans have speculated that the bangle somehow turned Kamala into Carol, and one of the series’ producers has an answer to this theory.

Off Kamala Khan. Come in, Carol Danvers


Corresponding Mrs Miracle Showrunner Bisha K. Ali (via Deadline), it’s really Brie Larson’s real Carol Danvers standing in Kamala’s room in Episode 6’s post-credits scene, debunking fan theories that Kamala somehow transformed into the Avenger:

“This is Carol Danvers in Kamala’s bedroom. What you see is exactly what you think you see. That’s her, there’s no magic. All I can say beyond that is enjoy the film in a year’s time.”

Of course, Ali is referring to the upcoming MCU movie, The wonders, which will be confirmed as the next appearance of both characters and will answer questions about why and how they switched places.

Ali’s confirmation of a switch as opposed to a shapeshift was corroborated by the official Marvel website, which published an article summarizing the scene in question:

“Some time later, Kamala collapses on her bed and her mother shouts from downstairs that it doesn’t sound like she’s doing science homework. Kamala groans, and then she notices that the bracelet on her wrist is glowing. As she gets up to take a closer look, she is suddenly sucked away by an unknown force, destroying her closet door in the process. When the dust has settled, Captain Marvel gets up and takes a look inside Kamala’s room and all the pictures, Posters and pictures of her plastered on the walls. Oh no.”

When asked if she was present on set when Larson filmed her performance, Ali replied that she wasn’t, but did mention that it was like seeing Carol on the show herself “unbelievable:”

“I wasn’t there when it was filmed, but seeing it was amazing! Also, her new suit looks as good as it goes with Kamala. It was delicious! I cannot describe the joy I felt when I saw her standing in Kamala’s bedroom. It was perfect. This was Kamala’s safe place to express herself. Seeing Captain Marvel standing in that room just brings so much joy to that scene.”

And finally, in replying to a question about whether this Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel switch has anything to do with Kamala’s supposed mutant status, the writer kept hammering home that the answers fans are seeking lie within The wonders:

“It’s all revealed in the film. I was excited to help you solve all of these puzzles for you that will lead into the movie where the story continues.”

The theory has a basis in Ms. Marvel Comics

The version of Kamala Khan that appears in the pages of Marvel Comics has very different powers than the MCU character. In the books, Ms. Marvel is a polymorph who can stretch and contort her body in countless ways, much like Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four. She can also shrink and grow, à la Ant-Man, and even change her shape to resemble other humans.

Since Marvel Comics’ Kamala is also quite a fan of Captain Marvel, she naturally made it a point to transform into her hero at various points. So this is very likely the precedent that fans based their theories on episode 6 on.

Kamala, Carol and wall vision‘s Monica Rambeau will all work together in the 2023 feature film, The wonders. Little is known about the film regarding plot details, but the villain is portrayed by Zawe Ashton. Maybe her character is responsible for sending Kamala who knows where?

One might also wonder where exactly Kamala was sent to. Given the nature of Carol’s duties, it’s entirely possible that Khan was thrown squarely in the middle of a firefight between two warring alien species. Would she be in over her head? It is important to remember that although Kamala Khan is only 16 years old, she is an able young woman who has developed good instincts and control over her powers during this time Mrs MiracleSeason with six episodes.

Maybe all of this actually has something to do with Kamala’s genetic mutation? It seems unlikely, however, as the switch implies a connection between Kamala and Carol, and the latter is not a mutant, having received her abilities from the explosion of an Infinity Stone-powered engine.

According to Bisha K. Ali, all of these mysteries will actually be solved when Marvel Studios’ The wonders hits theaters on July 28, 2023. In addition, all six episodes of Mrs Miracle streaming now exclusively on Disney_+.
