Wondering if MS. MARVEL is ok for kids? Judging from the first two episodes, it seems like Ms. Marvel is shaping up to be the most kid friendly Marvel show to date. When Kamala Khan, a high school student and Captain Marvel fangirl, suddenly gets superpowers, she’s not sure what to do with them. Here’s what parents need to know in this Ms. Marvel Parents Guide

Ms. Marvel Parents Guide

Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) is an ordinary Muslim American teenager growing up in New Jersey, right? When she and her best friend, Bruno (Matt Lintz) dream of going to AvengerCon, Kamala’s somewhat strict parents, don’t want her to go, so she decides to sneak out. She has to show the world her amazing Captain Marvel cosplay. 

When she discovers she has some superpowers, she is thrilled and scared. However, we all know that with superpowers come super villains. 

What is Ms. Marvel Rated? 

Ms. Marvel is rated TV-14 for language and action sequences which means some content may not be suitable for kids. 

So here’s the scoop on the rating for Ms. Marvel. There was information indicating it would be TV-PG. Then the day before Ms. Marvel premiered, Disney+ listed it as TV-14. Today (June 8) that TV-14 rating turned to a TV-PG on the site. A PG rating is the first for any Marvel movie or TV show.


In the first two episodes of Ms. Marvel there was a use of damn and bada** as well as many uses of Deity like “oh my g-d.”

If you’re letting younger kids watch, then be aware of other words like jerk, crap, and stupid. 

Mature Content

There is a mention of cocaine in a joke. 

Some scenes contain action sequences with typical Marvel violence (fighting, weapons), but the first two episodes are more tame than other Marvel shows. 

Teenagers sneak out of the house and disobey their parents. 

Girls address the patriarchy in their mosque. 

Is Ms. Marvel Kid Friendly?

Ms. Marvel feels like it was actually made for kids and teens. Ms. Marvel is the most kid friendly Marvel TV show or movie in the MCU.

Is Ms. Marvel Appropriate for Kids Under 10?

If kids are Marvel fans, then they’ll find something to relate to in Ms. Marvel. It’s fangirl central over here! I’d recommend Ms. Marvel for kids ages 10 and up. It’s safe for younger kids, too, but with a lot of dialogue in the first 2 episodes, they may find it boring. 

Ms. Marvel is a quirky and fun coming-of-age story that reminds me of when Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man. I loved him, because he pulled off the young, nerdy Peter Parker. I feel the same about Iman Vellani. A hint of rebellion and sarcasm but wide-eyed optimism makes her a delight to watch on screen. 

She plays a nerdy teenager often looked down on by peers, but she also exudes a cool confidence when channeling her inner Carol Danvers. Some comic fans may be upset that her powers are a departure from her original powers in the comics, but co-creator Sana Amanat said they wanted Kamala’s powers to link to her history and relationship with her family. 

Her Pakistani heritage and culture are weaved in throughout her story, making this another win for the brown girls and Marvel. The show gives me Never Have I Ever vibes, but without all the sexual content. Thank you, Marvel, for not trying to turn this into a sexy teen show. 

At times, the pacing is off, and the story is slow. Finally after the 2nd episode, I thought ok, so this is where this is going. It’s almost as if the show had an identity crisis. But like teens and tweens, they often do take time to figure things out. Kamala Khan is a welcome fangirl to the MCU who will be a great addition to this rising generation of superheroes. The fantasy-like visuals and charming cast is a big win.
