You could argue comic books have little importance in the grander scheme of things. But comic books make a big statement in a small way. We won’t have blockbuster movies about a Muslim superhero until we can all be excited about a comic book portraying one. When Marvel created Khan, it took a shot at breaking the typical paradigm of superheroes. While it’s a small gesture when measured up to the entire comic book world, it’s another step in the movement for equality in entertainment.
For the larger part of the decade, there was a potent cloud of racism and hatred towards Muslim people. Today, the fact we can portray young Muslim girls as superheroes is a beacon of hope for what is to come. Sure, a lot of people will say “it’s just a comic book.” But I’d like to think somewhere out there, it’s making a difference in a young Muslim girl’s life. And even if the message gets lost and Khan’s character doesn’t sell well, at least a young girl could have her own superhero to look up to.

But that’s not why I snuck out! It’s not that I think Ammi and Abu are dumb, it’s just — I grew up here! I’m from Jersey City, not Karachi! I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I don’t know who I’m supposed to be.
Ive been waiting for a superhero story about a poc teen from an immigrant family for so long you have no idea. These lines seriously resonated with me.

All-New Miss Marvel by Jeremy Roberts
"man, that costume is really good, i bet it’s a mckelvie" - me
and I’m normally right.
just doing a little warm up today of the new Ms. Marvel.
I also learned during this that i have a hard time thinking of shapeshifting in terms other than what I’ve seen clay face do in the batman animated series
Had to draw that new Ms. Marvel costume, with a nod to her inspiration. This character looks so fun. Separate drawings here, just because.
I already like the new Miss Marvel and i can’t wait to read the first issue. That’s why i had to do a quick fanart of her with her role model, and i’ll definitely do a better one when i have more free time.
And here’s another Kamala fanart. I think i’m done with Kamala for now. She looks like a fun character and i can’t wait to read the first issue of her new series. Anyway, i’m going back to work!

I’m really looking forward to this book!
