Ms. Marvel: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson
Kamala is a regular teen until she is transformed into Ms. Marvel. Given the choice, she opts for Ms. Marvel's traditional outfit and look until she realizes that it's difficult to fight evil in heels with hair flying everywhere. Kamala is unsure of how to use her new powers, let alone using them for crime-fighting. Slowly she begins to become more sure of herself exactly as she is which leads her to becoming more powerful than she imagined.
A straight up comic book, not graphic novel, but fun. It already has a following and buzz with students coming in to request it.
