One of the most talked about events of the Ms Marvel season finale was the revelation behind Kamala Kahn’s genetics, something that neither the protagonists knew
What do you do when you find out that you have a different genetic make-up in the MCU, like Ms Marvel? You email Kevin Feige in all caps, or at least that’s what Kamala Kahn’s performer Iman Vellani did.

While Ms Marvel Episode 6 wraps up all of the main storylines in the series, down the stretch there’s a big reveal waiting just around the corner.
Knowing that his sister can harness Noor’s energy, Aamir Khan asks Bruno Carrelli if maybe he could have powers too. So Bruno runs some tests on Aamir and discovers that Kamala is an outlier in his family for a different reason: there’s something different about her DNA.
Bruno isn’t exactly sure what’s going on with Kamala’s genetics, so he offers this simple explanation, stating that there is “something different in your genes.” Not knowing the weight of this, Kamala shrugs: “Whatever it is, it will be another label.”
Did you freak out at the reveal? If the answer is yes, you’re in good company, as the cast and crew of Ms. Marvel are also freaking out over this big reveal (and yes, you did hear the music in the scene, yes! You’re right).
The reactions to the entrance of…
“My God, the best day of my life!” declared Bisha K. Ali, the main writer of the series to the official Marvel website when asked if she can include that word (the one that starts with m).
However, this was not always the plan. The creative team wanted it to feel organic and not forced, as Ali noted, “It was not (an idea that was born) from the beginning [del programa]. With Marvel, something is always a moving piece, and we’re trying to figure out this question of, ‘If someone (from Kamala’s family) put on the bracelet, would they have powers?’ The answer was always no, from the character’s perspective, no.”.
So from the beginning, making Kamala different from the rest of the Khan made sense.
The time to shoot that scene
And when did Vellani find out this was happening? That’s when he emailed Feige in all caps.
“They sent me, and only me, the draft [del episodio final]and immediately I freaked out”, remembers Iman Vellani. “I emailed Kevin Feige in all caps. I was like, are you doing this for real? Are you sure? I am so honored! I was like yelling at him through email. I was freaking out. This is the biggest deal in the world, and the fact that it’s happening on our show is crazy.”.
Kamala’s DNA was the biggest secret behind the scenes, and very few knew what would happen at the end of the episode. Matt Lintz, who actually breaks the news to Kamala in the episode, finally had to know the secret, but it took some time.
“They didn’t even have it on [el guión]“, Explain. “I remember I was having a conversation about it and [los directores] They said: ‘Yes, you say this crazy’. They didn’t even tell me what it was! I was like, ‘What’s the problem here?’ They were very secretive about all that”.
“imam was laughingLintz continues, with a laugh. “He laughed almost every second. It was funny because she just said, ‘This is great.’ She couldn’t believe that she was telling him this. Obviously, it’s so big for her character. We were going through the scene and she was still laughing. she was making me laugh”.
