Now that Kamala Khan (as in, Ms. Marvel) has officially been revealed for the upcoming video game Marvel's Avengers from developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix, it's time for the folks behind the game to shine the spotlight on the new character in much the same way as they have past ones. That includes, but is not limited to, a showcase of her special moves in the video game.
As previously revealed, every playable character in Marvel's Avengers comes with three kinds of special abilities called Heroics. Specifically, heroes have Assault, Support, and Ultimate Heroics to play around with, and these often include iconic aspects of the characters from other media or adaptations. Thor, for example, can use the Bifrost. For Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel), the choice seems like it was pretty obvious for her abilities, even if they are implemented in unique and interesting ways.

And not only is she highly resistant to damage while Embiggened, all of her attacks also benefit from dramatically increased impact and damage, causing even the most sturdy of opponents to seem defenseless!#EmbraceYourPowers #Reassemble— Marvel's Avengers (@PlayAvengers) October 6, 2019
