The New Ms Marvel – A Muslim Teenage Jersey Girl

The New York Times have revealed G Willow Wilson as the new writer of the new Ms Marvel comic, and that the new character wearing the name of the publisher as a teenage Muslim girl.

She’s also from Jersey. I’m not sure which aspect is going to cause more fuss.

Editors Steve Wacker and Sara Amanat approached Wilson, a female Muslim comic book writer, rather rare in the industry, with the idea of such a character. The new Ms Marvel, Kamala Khan, is an American with Pakistani parents, and a fan of previous Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers, has shape changing abilities.

I can't say I have any interest in this. Especially when there's going to be a new Ghost Rider, Invaders, Punisher, Black Widow, Elektra, Inhumans, New Warriors, She-Hulk, and Silver Surfer.

Yes, she is. I think her series is getting a relaunch, too.

It is

There might be an audience for this. Hopefully it works out. It's not for me but that's what I like about comics. Something for everyone.

It kind of reminds me of Spider-Man India. It's not exactly the same thing but it's similar. I thought the same thing at the time; at the very least this gets a few people to read a comic (or a different type of comic) that normally wouldn't, and if it accomplishes that, that's great. I personally don't care anything about it, but I'm not the target audience and that's fine.
