    Welcome to the first of our Saturday Morning Panels special editions, our chance to pay tribute to those series that have had lasting impact on our staff as they reach important milestones.

    We kick off our special edition series with a look back at some of the best moments from G. Willow Wilson’s “Ms. Marvel,” which concluded its five year run this week. If you have a series you’d like us to spotlight for a Saturday Morning Panels special edition later this year, make your case in the comments!

    “Ms. Marvel” (2015) #37: “Those who wish to seek out the cause of miracles and to understand the things of nature as philosophers, and not to stare at them in astonishment like fools, are soon considered heretical and impious, and proclaimed as such by those whom the mob adores as the interpreters of nature and the gods. For these men know that, once ignorance is put aside, that wonderment would be taken away, which is the only means by which their authority is preserved.” – Spinoza, Ethics, Part 1, “Of God,” Appendix. – Kevin Gregory
