Marvel fan-turned-actor Iman Vellani revealed the primary comedian she ever owned.
The Ms. Marvel star did an Ask Me Anything in r/marvelstudios throughout which she answered all types of questions, together with “What was your first ever comic?” which was requested by none apart from Marvel-Official, AKA her “friends from work.”
“Hello!! it was Invincible Iron Man (2015) #1 by Bendis,” Vellani replied.
Invincible Iron Man (2015) #1 was printed on Oct. 7, 2015, when Vellani was simply 13 years outdated. It’s a dynamic and highly-rated relaunch of Iron Man, the primary in a collection that ran for 14 points.

Vellani was additionally a fan of Ms. Marvel earlier than turning into its title superhero within the MCU. “I knew exactly which comic books they pulled the scenes from [for the audition sides],” she instructed The Hollywood Reporter. Later within the interview, she talked about how she “nerded out” about Ms. Marvel throughout her audition:
“I was fully nerding out in front of [co-president] Louis D’Esposito and [casting head] Sarah Finn. I wanted to take full advantage of being there because I didn’t know if it was going to happen again.”
Moreover, the Pakistani-Canadian instructed The Washington Post that she “didn’t even realize representation was something that was missing” till she “read those [Ms. Marvel] comics for the first time.”
