From the heartwarming to the heroic, these Ms. Marvel quotes will remind you that you’re always the superhero of your own story.
“There is no normal.” – Kamala Khan
Full quote: “There is no normal. There’s just us, and what we do with what we’ve been given.”
After a public fight that exposed his newfound powers to the city, a worried Kamran tells Kamala there’s no way to return to the person he used to be. He fears he’ll never be able to be “normal” after the damage he’s done.
Kamala tells him there’s no such thing as normal. All we can do is make the best of the circumstances we’ve been handed. Kamala’s words remind us that, even when we don’t feel like we fit in, there’s still a place for us in the world. We always have the power to create it for ourselves.
“Good is not something you are…” – Sheikh Abdullah
Full quote: “Good is not something you are, Kamala. It is something you do.”
As Kamala worries about whether her superhero activities might be harming more than they’re helping, she asks Sheikh Abdullah how she can convince others that she’s actually good. In one simple sentence, he reminds her that “being good” isn’t something we inherently are. It’s something we choose to be, day after day, through our actions.
Sheik Abdullah reminds us that, while we will inevitably make mistakes, our positive actions are what truly count. As much as we may worry about whether we’re a good person, what matters is the good we choose to do for others.
“If you saved one life… you saved the world.” – Yusuf Khan
Full quote: “You saved lives. And if you saved one life, well, you saved the world.”
In a heartfelt conversation, Kamala’s father, Yusuf Khan, reminds her of how much of a hero she already is. While she may not yet see herself as being as heroic as Captain Marvel, her father reminds her that making an impact for one person can be just as important as saving the world.
Yusuf’s words remind us that changing the world can start with taking one small action. If we can make a difference for one person, we’ve already changed that person’s world. The everyday superheroes are the people who use whatever they have to make a positive change, no matter how small it may seem.
“You don’t have to do it alone.” – Muneeba Khan
Full quote: “Whatever mountain you’re facing, you don’t have to do it alone.”
As Kamala worries about her new superpowers, her mother, Muneeba Khan, can sense something is wrong. She knows Kamala feels isolated, but reminds her she doesn’t have to carry the weight of her worries alone.
Muneeba offers some words of wisdom to Kamala, letting her know that, as big as her difficulties may seem, they’ll be smaller if she allows others to face them with her. Her words remind us that all of us are stronger when we’re part of a team. Relying on others can help us find strength that we forgot we have.
“A man has one fundamental choice in life.” – Yusuf Khan
Full quote: “A man has one fundamental choice in life. To live a life in fear or love. A man who chooses love chooses joonoon, passion. He chooses faith, courage.”
As Kamala’s older brother, Aamir, prepares for his wedding, he confides to his father that he barely has any money. He’s worried about his ability to start his new life. Aamir tells him that life is all about the choices we make. We can choose to be afraid of the unknown, or we can choose to jump into the unknown with passion.
Ultimately, Yusuf reminds Aamir that he has already chosen bravery, because he has chosen family. His words remind us of the power of faith, and show us the importance of leaning into love rather than succumbing to fear.
“If you wanna save the world…” – Bruno Carrelli
Full quote: “You’re Kamala Khan. If you wanna save the world, then you’re gonna save the world.”
As Kamala and her best friend, Bruno, sit together on a roof, Kamala confesses to him she doesn’t know if she’ll ever be the person she dreams of being. She wants to be as impactful as the heroes she looks up to, but she doesn’t know if she can be. Bruno assures her that she can.
His words remind us how powerful friendship can be. Our closest friends are the people who believe in us when we can’t believe in ourselves, and remind us of how strong we truly are.
“What you seek is seeking you.” – Waleed
We first hear this as Waleed, leader of the Red Daggers, reads the inscription on Kamala’s bangle. We later learn Kamala’s great-grandmother, Aisha, was the one who initially spoke these words as a way to reunite her daughter and husband after they were separated.
This quote serves as a reminder of the power of believing in our desires, and our power to bring them into reality. Ms. Marvel herself, actor Iman Vellani, has even expressed she feels like she manifested the role. While we may not have the magical superpowers that Ms. Marvel does, there is magic in our ability to create the life that we dream of.
“Who do you want to be in this world…” – Muneeba Khan
Full quote: “Who do you want to be in this world, huh? Do you want to be good, like we raised you to be? Or do you want to be this cosmic, head-in-the-clouds person?”
This closing quote from the first episode of Ms. Marvel ties up the entire series incredibly well. In the beginning, we see Kamala struggle with her newfound superhero identity and worry that she’s bringing more trouble than help to her community.
As she goes through tests and trials, she finds old and new friends to help her along the way. Her final stand-off with the Department of Damage Control is first aided by her close friends, and goes on to be supported by the community at large. She realizes that even superheroes need help sometimes, and she doesn’t have to do everything alone.
As she helps Kamran to find safety, Kamala truly learns Sheikh Abdullah’s lesson that good is something you do. As she uses her newfound cosmic powers to make a positive impact for others, she’s able to be the kind of person she was raised to be while becoming the hero she was born to be.
Kamala Khan’s journey to becoming Ms. Marvel, and all of the lessons she learns along the way, can inspire us to become the heroes of our own stories. So what good can you do today?
