Who is the Red Dagger? The new character of Ms. Marvel • ENTER.CO

For a series of just six chapters, Ms. Marvel has managed to pack a considerable amount of references into the few chapters it does have. The most recent episode, in fact, feels a bit saturated with information. He even takes the time to introduce us to a new MCU vigilante: The Red Dagger.

As in the Disney+ series, the Red Dagger is Kareem’s alter ego. But unlike the show, it’s not about some name passed down through generations. Instead, it is about a young man who decides to become a vigilante in his town. In fact, what’s interesting is that his abilities didn’t come from some mystical training he learned how to throw his daggers by watching videos online.

The Red Dagger made its first appearance in Ms. Marvel Vol. 4 #12 (October 2016).
