Ms Marvel, the latest superhero series which is Marvel’s gift to South Asians, has finally introduced the character we had all been waiting for. In episode 4, released today on Disney+ Hotstar, we finally see our Bollywood link, Farhan Akhtar. Don’t worry, there are no major spoilers here.
If you’ve been following Ms Marvel, you’ll know how pivotal this episode is for Kamala and her journey towards finally figuring out her real identity. Kamala and her mother, Muneeba, travel to Karachi to meet her Nani. For Kamala, this journey is vital to know more about her great grandmother, Aisha, and find out what her superpower-laden bangle can really do. And in this episode, we are also introduced to Farhan Akhtar’s Marvel character, Waleed.
Waleed tells Kamala more about the realm of the Clandestines and why it’s important that they don’t get hold of the bangle. You’ll also see Farhan Akhtar in action as he fights to protect Kamala and the bangle. There’s a lot of action, desi scenery, Kamala’s increased control on her powers…and some time travel.
Here are a few tweets that will give you an idea of why you should not miss the latest episode of Ms Marvel.

“My passport is Pakistani, my roots are in India. And in between all of this there is a border. There is a border marked with blood and pain. People are claiming their identity based on an idea some old Englishmen had when they were fleeing the country.”#msmarvel hitting hard.
