In a discussion thread about the season 1 finale of Ms. Marvel” on Reddit, user TheSweatband wrote, “The way the neighborhood has their backs reminds me of Miles Morales’ Spider-Man game,” referring to how everyday members of Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani ) and the community of Kamran (Rish Shah) help fend off Department of Damage Control agents before the episode reaches its climax.
User timeexterminator also compared this element of the season finale to a scene from Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man movie, in which a New Yorker (Joe Virzi) taunts Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) by yelling, “You hook up with one as of us , you mess with us all.” Meanwhile, user ers247 reported feeling that given Jersey City’s proximity to Queens, New York, such similarities to “Spider-Man” led to a guest appearance by Tom Holland’s Peter Parker could lead.
As it turns out, producer Adil El Arbi told Polygon that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a big influence on the visual style of Ms. Marvel,” which perhaps further inspired such comparisons between the two works.
By the time the first season of “Ms. Marvel” Kamala Khan and Peter Parker have yet to meet, making parallels between the two characters’ stories largely marginal for now. Of course, Ms. Marvel’s MCU tenure has only just begun, leaving plenty of room for the East Coast’s friendliest neighborhood superheroes to eventually team up.
