Kamala thinks she’s solved her need-to-be-everywhere-at-once problem by creating clone golems with Bruno’s help. Unfortunately, the golems are multiplying and out of control.
The one she sent to P.E. is ignoring her friends, causing more concern from Zoe and Nakia. And the one sent to attend the family meeting between the Khans and Tyesha’s parents malfunctions and melts on the couch, scaring the shit out of everyone.
Kamala assures everyone it’s a school science experiment gone wrong and she’ll take care of it in time to attend the couple’s engagement party. Working with Bruno, Kamala realizes she contaminated the clones with a neurotoxin she picked up while taking on some of HYDRA’s men. She leaves Bruno and Mike to work on the problem – after making them to promise that contacting Loki for his help would be a last resort – so she can attend the party.
All is going well until a giant Kamala golem creature crashes the festivities.

With so much danger getting closer to home, I wonder how long Kamala will be able to keep her secret from her father and brother. Also, with Tyesha moving in, that is yet another person Kamala will have to navigate.
I did not enjoy this issue as much as the most recent ones, but I am not yet sure why that is – it had all of the elements I love. I think it may be because the story felt like a filler. The upside of that means the finale, next issue, should have lots of pay off.
