‘Ms. Marvel’ finale just teased the Marvel Cinematic Universe's next big team

Ms. Marvel just changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Since their first team-up, The Avengers have been the headlining team of the MCU. But the season finale of Ms. Marvel on Disney+ officially confirmed the next team of heroes Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been waiting years to introduce: The X-Men. In episode six, Bruno (Matt Lintz) informs his bestie Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) that there may be more to her powers than the ones unlocked by her family's otherworldly bangle. "Kamala, there's something different in your genes, like a mutation," he tells her, followed by a snippet of the X-Men: The Animated Series theme song. Kamala may be the franchise's first confirmed mutant, which is a major shakeup from her comic book origins. In the comics, Kamala is an Inhuman (another group of super-powered people), and unlike the X-Men, her powers were dormant until she was exposed to a magical mist. Now that Disney has access to the X-Men lineup, Ms. Marvel confirmed that we'll be seeing heroes like Wolverine and Storm join the likes of the Hulk and Captain Marvel down the line.
