Critics have hailed the release of Ms Marvel, Disney's first on-screen Muslim superhero story, as a "joyful" slice of "pop culture history".
The show centres around geeky teenager and Avengers comic book fangirl Kamala Khan, played by Pakistani-Canadian newcomer Iman Vellani.
She struggles to fit in until she gains superpowers, becoming Ms Marvel.
In a five-star review, The Guardian said: "She's funny, charming and effortlessly bats off preconceptions."
The paper's TV critic Lucy Mangan wrote: "Normally, you would fear for a young actor, but Vellani seems so born to the purple [the colour of her powers] that you almost have to shrug and say, as an elder might to a nascent superhero in - oh, I don't know, the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe] perhaps - that it is her destiny."
Mangan said the two available episodes of the six-part Disney+ series were "full of charm, wit, warmth, brio and truth".
