Iman Vellani, star of the Ms. Marvel miniseries, swung by San Antonio comic and gaming shop Heroes and Fantasies on Saturday to greet fans and geek out about Captain Marvel.

Vellani, who's also written for Marvel comics and for her own show, found the time to schedule the visit while she was in town for the Superhero Comic Con, held at the Freeman Expo Center.

"The biggest Captain Marvel fan we’ve ever come across swung by the shop last night," Heroes and Fantasies said on its Instagram page, where it shared a photo of Vellani posing with a fan.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Vellani plays Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teen who's obsessed with Captain Marvel and later obtains superpowers that allow her to join forces with her hero.

Vellani, who was born in Pakistan, reprised her role in the 2023 movie The Marvels. In that film, she teams up with Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) to fight off alien forces.

Heroes and Fantasies is located at 13013 U.S. Highway 281.
