WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR MS MARVEL EPISODE 1 AHEAD. The MCU has a new origin story as Ms Marvel hits Disney+ today, following teenager Kamala Khan who receives powers from a mysterious family bracelet she puts on towards the end of the first episode. Surprisingly, there was an end credits scene already, featuring a character from Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The Ms Marvel end credits scene sees a woman watching a clip of Kamala using her powers at Avengers Con that has gone viral on the internet.
She takes the phone and shows Special Agent P Cleary, who works for the Department of Damage Control. Having seen the footage, he asks his colleague to bring Ms Marvel in.
MCU fans will remember seeing Cleary, played by Arian Moayed, in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Now in the 2024 setting of Ms Marvel, Damage Control appears to be its own agency, seeking to enforce the Sokovia Accords from Captain America: Civil War that stamped down on superhero vigilantism without US government oversight and approval.
Having been assigned to investigate both Parker and Khan, it looks like superhero teenagers are Cleary’s focus, suggesting that Marvel Phase 4 is setting up the Young Avengers. Perhaps he’ll be the main villain in the show going forwards?
Ms Marvel is streaming on Disney+, with a new episode every Wednesday.
