    QUOTED FROM WEBSITE :
    To tell that story, Amanat drew her own childhood as a Muslim growing up in New Jersey.“I had one instance where right after the first World Trade Center bombing, this kid came up to me in class and was like ‘Hey, can you tell your people to stop attacking us?'” Amanat recalls. “It was the first moment where I realized I was ‘the other’ and I was not included like everyone else.”
    Sarcasm aside, this is the problem.


    To reiterate I take no issue with South Asians being superheroes or having lead roles in film, but the fact this dumb superhero was created for the purpose of engineering people's perceptions rather than for its own merits is beyond pathetic.

    Depends on whether you mean lady killers in the literal sense

    There are White superheroes, female superheroes, Black superheroes, there is no reason not to have a South Asian superhero, but Muslim really?
    Calm down, Ms Marvel is not the first Muslim Marvel character. And yes, there's been white Muslim superheros, black Muslim superheros, even a Chinese Muslim superhero.

    Nobody makes a Jewish superhero or a Sikh superhero or a Christian superhero.

    Good suggestion though, maybe they should consider making a Sikh superhero then

    Basically, the guys in charge know the West is one step from tearing itself apart and need to calm things down by pushing this BS
    Man, you're one of those raging atheists. You make us atheists look bad. :rofl: And while reading the comics, the main character is similar to Peter Parker, and the whole comic isn't revolving around her religion.

    looool

    Jewish Superheroes like Shadowcat or Magneto? Christian superheroes like Nightcrawler or Magog or Daredevil?

    If I had a concern, it would be that Miss Marvel is a particular person that isn't this person, but I stopped reading comics some time ago and have no idea what has happened, so...

    I have no opinion on this either good or bad.

    Actually, I have changed my mind you're right, it's normal to establish some level of backstory because the readers want to know the person rather than just the narrative and action and in fact there is no reason why they could not include a Muslim, so I do apologise.
