The Rundown: Kamala struggles with her new mission and her new life as a mutant.

After her resurrection and discovery that she is a mutant, Kamala has been having some restless nights not knowing who or what she is. She still has her family and friends to count on as she and Bruno travel to Empire State so she can begin a summer program created by Orchis.

After revealing her mutant status to Bruno, Kamala struggles with trying to navigate her own internal issues and her mission to spy on Orchis for the X-Men. When a rogue experiment escapes, she discovers a taste of the anti-mutant sentiment on campus while Orchis puts a target on her back.

The Story: Vellani and Pirzada do a wonderful job of fitting in a new story among the bigger elements affecting mutants in the Marvel universe. The story has some great dialogue and moments between Kamala and Bruno. I love the struggles she’s dealing with both internal and external. The writing is light and fun, but also allows for the bigger drama within the story to be compelling and the stakes for the character are interesting and engaging.  

The Art: Gomez and Gorham deliver some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The visual styles work really well together and enhance the story in great ways.
