Marvel Muslim Comic

Marvel Comics debuted their first ever female muslim super heroine, Ms. Marvel.

Readers have been introduced to Kamala Khan, 16-year-old Pakistani-American teen from Jersey City, New Jersey. Islamic convert G. Willow Wilson and Muslim editor Sana Amanat created her character in an attempt to tear down comic stereotypes that crime-fighters are mostly white.

She follows the Peter Parker storyline of a teen trying to find him/herself, while adapting to gaining super power. But because she is “female and a first generation American who struggles with the values and authority of her immigrant parents” her story is a new perspective for its readers.

She’s the first installment of a heap of new multi-cultural female superheroes. 

Vixens, are you going to check out her story?
