Episode 3 of “Ms. Marvel” has some great details and Easter eggs, so here are 15 you might have missed.

🚨 Warning: there are HUGE spoilers ahead for lady marvel Episode 3 on Disney+! 🚨

1.First, during the flashback while looking for Kamala’s bracelet, you can see that it is found on the severed arm of someone with blue skin. In previous MCU projects, we know that blue skin is linked to the Kree. This is also a great nod to how Kamala’s journey will eventually intersect with Captain Marvel.

two.As the British threaten to tear down the temple of Kamala’s great-grandmother Aisha and her friends in 1942, you can see they’re in the Ten Rings. Inside Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, we learned about this powerful organization led by Wenwu.

3.While talking to Kamala, Kamran’s mother Najma suggests that maybe one day he might have powers like Kamala, which is a reference to Kamran’s backstory in the comics. In the comics, Kamran has powers and discovers them after being exposed to Terrigen Mist, similar to Kamala.

4.Najma explains to Kamala that they are from the Noor Dimension and are known as “Clandestines”. While the Noor Dimension doesn’t exist in the comics, a version of the Underworld does. In Marvel comics, the Destine Clan is a group of children whose parents are Adam of Destine and Elalyth, who is a Djinn.

5.When listing all the things the Underground have been called upon, Najma mentions “Invisible”, which is a nod to What if…? and The Watcher. In the comics, the Invisibles are a group of people who can evade the Watcher’s oversight.

6.Also, Najma says they are better known as “Djinn”, which Kamala has heard stories about. In Marvel comics, the Djinn are a race of people said to be the offspring of Lilith. Also, as I mentioned above, Clan Destine’s comic background also relates to Djinn. In real life, Djinn also have origins in Islam and the word comes from the Arabic word “Jinn”, which means “demons or spirits”.

7.When Kamala asks Bruno if he knows anything about interdimensional travel, Bruno mentions that he once read an article by Dr. Erik Selvig. Of course, Selvig made his first appearance in the MCU in Thor alongside Jane Foster and Darcy Lewis.

8.When Aamir comes downstairs and says that they should only hide one pair of shoes from him, it is an homage to the wedding tradition called “Joota Chori”, where the bride’s family hides the groom’s shoes. If you look at the scene before Aamir enters, you can see a boy walking down the stairs with all his shoes on.

9.When Imam gives Kamala some advice, he is actually quoting a moment from the lady marvel comics. Inside lady marvel Issue #5 of 2014, this quote about being good takes place while she’s making her new costume and painting her signature lightning bolt yellow.

10.At one point, you can see that Kamala is wearing an Iron Man T-shirt. In real life, Iman Vellani said that Robert Downey Jr. is his favorite actor and Iron Man / Tony Stark is his favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

11.You can see a poster of Nikola Tesla hanging in Bruno’s room during Episode 3. Nikola was an inventor and engineer who notably discovered, and later patented, the rotating magnetic field, which is the basis of most AC machines.

13.When Kamala is fighting the Stalkers, she uses her newfound powers to create a large fist while punching them. This is a nod to the lady marvel comics, where Kamala often raises and stretches her arm and fist while fighting.

14.When Najma takes Kamala’s bracelet and the two have another vision, you’ll notice it’s a train heading towards them with “Karachi” written on the front. In Episode 2, we find out about the Khan family and their connection to Karachi and how Muneeba’s family moved to Karachi after the Partition.
