By the end of the episode, Bruno talked to Kamala telling her of his discovery. This is the point where MCU opens its doors to a major future plot. That Kamala’s genes are different from that of the rest of her family. At that moment, Bruno mentions his observations that she has some form of mutation. Mutation! Queue X-Men background music and Kamala states that whatever it is, is that it’ll just be another label.

This bit of information is a huge piece for the future of MCU. All of a sudden, after all these years, the Mutant Gene is in Universe 616. They have also foreshadowed the storyline of discrimination. A storyline that is very much inherent in X-Men. Kamala Khan is the first Muslim hero in the MCU. Being that, as also seen in the series, she has experienced being on the receiving end of racial discrimination. But the series also showed how grounded she is when she declared what ever it will be will not define her as her.

Somehow the power from the bangle and Captain Marvel are connected. Where did that teleportation swap bring Kamala to? And why does Captain Marvel, one of MCU’s overpowered heroes, appear to be panicking?

With the Mutant Gene now introduced in the MCU, can we now expect mutants to slowly appear in future series? Next Disney Plus series coming up is She Hulk: Attorney at Law. Since Jennifer Walters portrayed by Tatiana Maslany will be involved in superhuman related cases, does this mean there will be increased number of such cases in the future? By increase, does it mean people with the Mutant Gene appears more prominently?

Somehow, this strengthens the theory that the gene mutated as a result of the Snap and the Blip. Such surge of energy as well as the Emergence in Eternals have caused the mutation. Thus, a huge portion of the human population is now affected. Changed forever.

Sequel to 2019 Captain Marvel entitled The Marvels has July 28, 2023 as its release date. Meanwhile catch the full 6-episode series of Ms. Marvel on Disney Plus.
