Can Ms. Marvel Shrink Or Grow in Size?

Ms. Marvel series gave Kamala a different set of powers which led to a lot of questions and controversies since in the comics, she is a shapeshifter but on the Disney Plus show, she gets to produce what she calls "hard light."

Still, the show did not forget to look back to the original source material even with Kamala Khan's powers and origins are different to the comics. With Ms. Marvel's hard light, she can conjure any illusion through light from her body like making her hands big to punch the villains in the first few episodes.

It is in the finale where Ms. Marvel paid homage to Kamala Khan's shapeshifting powers in the comics. While in the middle of the fight against the Department of Damage Control, Kamala had enough and with one word, she grew in size -- "embiggen."

So far, in the Ms. Marvel series, Kamala only grew in size, not shrink. It's still unknown whether it is possible for her hard light to shrink her in size but with the finale showcasing how Kamala can "embiggen," it's a great comic book callback to her origins.

All the six episodes of Ms. Marvel are now available to stream on Disney Plus.
