‘Marvel’s Avengers’ Character Outfit Spotlight: Kamala Khan
Plus, get a look at the alternate Classic Ms. Marvel outfit!
"Kamala’s look was a challenge for the art team," revealed Crystal Dynamics' game director Tore Blystad. "At the time Crystal Dynamics started designing Kamala, she had only been around for a few years, so there wasn't as much material to work from when compared to characters like Captain America or Thor."
"Kamala starts her journey in casual clothing, a look heavily inspired by the iconic front cover of the first MS. MARVEL comic," added Blystad. "A satchel with scarf was added for some nice secondary movement when she’s jumping around — which happens quite often! The design team also gave her lots of layers since she goes through a variety of environments."
To capture the essence of Kamala Khan, and to "do justice" to the original Ms. Marvel designs, Crystal Dynamics worked closely with the Marvel Games team and Ms. Marvel co-creator Sana Amanat.
"We wanted Kamala to have a strong origin arc from fan girl to Super Hero, as a representation of the player’s journey -— the player’s perspective is aligned with Kamala’s," shared Blystad. "We took the core inspiration from the iconic Ms. Marvel costume from the comic, especially the MS. MARVEL #2 cover. But since our Kamala has to stand side-by-side with the other Avengers, she gets some help from Tony Stark who designs and makes her outfit. The materials are partly inspired by her cultural heritage and modern tactical materials and cuts."
The bracelet is the only element that is shared across all of Ms. Marvel's outfits. It is a family heirloom that she got from her grandmother, and she uses it to keep her most precious possessions safe when on the job.
ALTERNATE OUTFIT: CLASSIC
When Kamala failed a rescue attempt in her standalone 2014 series MS. MARVEL, she picked herself up and tried again. After extra training and a costume upgrade she pulled off the rescue, going on to become New Jersey's protector. This outfit is inspired by her iconic comic costume.
