**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Ms. Marvel**
We’ve had little lead on who the villain could be for Ms. Marvel, but the comic-book fandom has been on hand to spot some key details.
We reveal the clue that fans spotted in Episode 1 of Ms. Marvel that could point to a potential villain and we provide an episode guide to the show.
Created by Bisha K. Ali for Disney Plus, the miniseries Ms. Marvel follows Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan and her transformation into Ms. Marvel. The series contains six episodes and the character is also set to appear in the upcoming The Marvels film led by Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.
Marvel fans spot a clue in Episode 1
Ms. Marvel Epsiode 1, titled Generation Why, saw Kamala Khan and her best friend Bruno talking on the rooftops with the city behind them.
Over the character’s left is a neon sign that fans had to read backward and it says “Edison Electric”.
According to Marvel Comics, Edison Electric was used as a base by the supervillain and enemy to Kamala Khan, The Inventor.
The Ms. Marvel post-credit scene also suggests that Damage Control will become a potential threat to the young superhero as well.
Who is The Inventor?
The Inventor is a rather disturbing villain who first appeared in 2014’s Ms. Marvel (Vol. 3) #5 and his appearance is sinister.
Gregory Knox was known for cloning the famous inventor, Thomas Edison, however, Edison’s DNA ended up being contaminated by Knox’s pet cockatiel resulting in something horrific.
During synthesis, the clone mutated into a being with a bird-like face and body and began using the assumed name The Inventor.
Furthermore, The Inventor appeared in the Ms. Marvel storyline Generation Why, which is also the title of the show’s first episode.
