Episode 3 of Ms. Marvel arrives to answer some of the most important questions of the show, and also to make the Marvel Cinematic Universe a bit bigger in the process. The show has been doing fine when it comes to the reception. All the people who are watching having a great time seeing Kamala getting used to her powers and also following her around while learning a little about her community and how life is for people like that.
However, the issue is that not many people are watching the show. The first two episodes of Ms. Marvel were not precisely a must-watch event. The series doesn’t really offer impressive action sequences, masterful comedy, and not even great visual effects. Nevertheless, as a complete package, it is a very wholesome show and more people should it give a chance, although it is hard to blame the audience when there are so many other competitive options out there.
Episode 3 tries to bring the rest of the MCU closer to the show, making some really important connections to other franchises. The next paragraphs include spoilers for the episode. Read at your own risk.
