CHANGE THE WORLD!

THE KAMALA CON!

The Champions are playing dirty to beat Roxxon at their own game - including implanting two of their own as interns to take down the corporation from within.

But in order to earn the trust of their cutthroat Roxxon supervisors, they'll have to deliver an unwilling spokesperson: Kamala Khan.

Will Ms. Marvel agree to become the face of a company and a law that she hates, or is it too high a price to pay for victory?
