Marvel’s Ms. Marvel series brought 16-year-old Kamala Khan played by Iman Vellani on screen and fans are loving it! Kamala Khan happens to be an Avengers superfan living in New Jersey. In the series, Kamala inherits a mysterious bangle that appears to imbue her with cosmic superpowers. MCU has been exploring ways to develop a multi-project story arc centering on parallel universes since 2021.
Marvel’s Earth and the multiverse
In Doctor Strange Madness of Multiverse, fans go to know that the main MCU is called Earth-616. Recently in an interview with Deadline, Ms. Marvel actress Iman Vellani talked about how Mysterio knows more about the multiverse than Doctor Strange. She said, “how does Mysterio… why was Mysterio in the MCU right about 616, because he mentioned it. Why would he know anything? He’s just an actor.”
Imam Vellani and her theories about MCU Earth
During the interview, Imam added why the MCU’s true Multiversal designation is actually Earth-19999. She said,
“I have this argument with Kevin [Feige] every single time I see him in person. It’s not 616. The MCU is definitely 199999. It’s five nines. And all this happened because Kevin Feige made a joke in an interview about how long the MCU would stand for and he said, ‘199999 years.’ But we need a number and you can’t take it from the Marvel comics canon, because that was like the main comics canon where all the main events took place.”
Imam said that the comic book Kamala Khan is off having her own adventures on Earth-616 in print form, “There is in the 616 universe! In the comics, yeah. As of right now, you get what you get.”
Ms. Marvel Comics and her powers
In the Ms Marvel comics, the MCU was indeed categorized as Earth-199999. However, Mysterio did label the universe he claimed to have landed on as Earth-616. Mysterio AKA Quentin Beck was depicted as a highly intelligent scientist and inventor. In Spiderman Far From Home, he also had an entire team of people at his back to help sell the story and illusion in order to dupe Nick Fury and Peter Parker into handing over control of the dangerous EDITH protocols.
Ms. Marvel Episode 2 will stream on June 15, Wednesdays, only on Disney+.
