Marvel prepares portrayal of its 1st Muslim superhero

Marvel Studios is getting ready for its upcoming Disney+ show Ms. Marvel, which will include a Pakistani-American teenager Kamala Khan - Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first Muslim superhero. Kamala Khan, who draws inspiration from Captain Marvel, became Marvel’s first Muslim character with her own comic in 2014. Marvel Studios has cast newcomer Iman Vellani as the title character.

Isn't that an oxymoron? Muslim and heroes? Seems antithetical to what heroes stand for. Islam means submission and their laws call for the subjugation or elimination of infidels(Any non-muslim) Including special punishments for the heinous crime of being born Jewish. That doesn't really seem like a motto that will gel with heroe work?

In reality, would a superhero need a deity? Does it even matter to the audience? The only other character that has a deity is nightcrawler from what I know.

"Draws inspiration from Captain Marvel" correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Ms. Marvel replace Captain Marvel?

😂 always awesome to see haters post their trash online when stuff like this is published. You keep on hating, while Disney makes bank by providing good content for everyone. Can’t wait for the people bitching and moaning about more “woke” shows being made.

Here’s to hoping the TV show will be better than the comic... doubtful, as they seem to be pushing the Muslim angle, but it’s *technically* possible

She’s not actually Muslim on any recognizable level. This is why even apolitical people hate tokenism.

If memory serves, she replaces Captain Marvel. Brie Larson is an excellent actress, don't get me wrong, but I feel like she did the character a disservice. Hopefully, Ms. Marvel will be a step up in character treatment
