For years, Marvel fans have wondered: when will the MCU introduce mutants? Victory returns were teased by Kevin Feige all the way back at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, with avid viewers only getting breadcrumbs for their arrival, as was Charles Xavier’s return to the big screen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now it seems the final Ms. Marvel has a key relationship with the X-Men re-introduction.
It’s been made clear that the introduction of mutants was avoided in the Doctor Strange sequel to prevent such a big reveal from shadowing Wanda’s story. Unfortunately, it seems that it will instead overshadow Kamala Khan, played by Iman Vellani, as the season finale of Ms. Marvel reveals that she’s not just a Clandestine.
