Since Brian Reed stopped being interested in her series (which was then cancelled) and the first incarnation of the Bendis' Mighty Avengers finished (both of which seem to coincide right about Secret Invasion), Ms. Marvel's not had a lot to do in the Marvel universe. She's been Avengers wallpaper, occasionally coming to the fore when something needs to be hit and stand in crowd scenes.

I don't believe that she's even had notable gust star spots, except in Black Widow and the Marvel Girls. As you can see from the cover, this series carries Marvel's guarantee of good, clean, done-in-one superhero storytelling. For those new to Marvel comics, just look for the TOBIN mark on the cover. In this instance, it's next to the barcode at the bottom of the page.

This series tells the story of Natasha's development from raw recruit in the Soviet secret service (she's literally a child in #1) and her rise through the ranks and SHIELD. It's essentially Black Widow team up, featuring Storm, Wasp, Enchantress and Ms. Marvel

We're in Ashdod, Israel, where Natasha is on the hunt for Ms. Marvel. She leaves the hotel room that Ms. Marvel has been staying at and on the street sees somebody drive a van into a building.


Natasha flashes her SHIELD badge at the soldiers and acts as a first responder, helping to find survivors.* Underneath the wreckage she finds a woman in a cowboy shirt who is unharmed and asks "Am I to be activated" before walking away.
Natasha finds a room full of Nazi iconography, a massive portrait of the Red Skull and a cyogenic-style chamber with the door open.
Natasha goes back topside and starts giving out orders to the Israeli troops on the scene.
She radios in to Nick Fury and explains that the incident is unrelated to her search for Ms. Marvel.


I'd really like to see some more things like this. Superheroes helping out during disasters, rather than just punching things.




And Carol's seventh sense kicks in.

What happens next? More? I heartily recommend this
