Preview: Ms Marvel #2


Ms_Marvel_2_Cover

G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona made quite a splash with Ms. Marvel. The creation of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager who becomes a superhero somehow taps into the current world of texting and multi-cultural society—just the way Marvel’s most memorable books have always done. The first issue went back to print, and issue two ships on March 19th.

  1. Last I heard she was a Muslim, did they change that? I hope they address the war on women’s rights along with the troubles of texting with regards to her culture. Otherwise what’s the point in making her Pakistani or Muslim? Seems like a market ploy from the get go so I didn’t read it.

    @ Mac
    What makes you think they changed their cultural roots and it’s alla bout texting? Have you read the first issue? Ah right, no. Talk about bias :)

    Look at me I’m edgy, I’m a teen, I’m a Muslim, I’m hip.

  4. Jack Feerick says:

    Otherwise what’s the point in making her Pakistani or Muslim?

    Must a character’s ethnic or religious background always be an intrinsic part of that character’s effect? What’s the “point” of making, say, Iceman (to pick a character at random) a white guy? Should Iceman be reduced to a vehicle to “address” the troubles of white American manhood? Do we look to Iceman, as a visible member of the white guy demographic, to teach us valuable lessons about white masculinity in crisis?

    What a bizarre notion.

  5. Jack Feerick says:

    Characters that look like me — who appeal to me — are characters, full stop.
    Characters that look like or appeal to people who are not me are “a marketing ploy.”

    Check your head, man.

  6. @Jack Feerick – that was a great way of putting it. Well done.

  7. Jack Feerick says:

    It pains me that it needs to be said at all.

    @all: (Ms.) Marvel is really a Great Comic Book. Kamala Khan is offering us the possibility to Look past our Own prejudices towards a Religion and a People. The Book makes us realize That their lives are not that different from our Own as we might think. With her First line in issue One she makes Fun of all our fears and negative Images of Muslims: “delicious Infidel meat” while looking at a Sandwich. This is Perfect. It still simple thinking about it now. Sorry for the typos – German autocorrections ;)

  9. such a great cover!

  10. Ms. Marvel is selling really well for Marvel – particularly to women. Maybe women – not to mention men – just like seeing a woman superhero with some well thought out depth of character?
