Developer Crystal Dynamics revealed Ms Marvel on Friday during a panel at the New York Comic Con.

A trailer for the hero shows that she received her powers when exposed to mysterious Terrigen Gas following a Helicarrier explosion that supposedly killed Captain America.
Five years later, a teenager Khan comes across evidence showing a conspiracy behind the events of that day.
Talking about her superpowers, Khan's hidden Inhuman polymorph powers manifest allowing her to stretch her body.

"Kamala Khan is one of the unique characters that makes our game stand apart from any Avengers story experienced before.”
"I think Kamala is a perfect fit for a game like this, since she sees the Marvel world the same way we do as fans and players," added G. Willow Wilson, co-creator of Ms. Marvel. "Kamala allows us to imagine what we ourselves would do if we suddenly discovered we had superpowers and got to stand alongside our heroes in their time of greatest need."
