Islam has Nothing to do with Marvel's "Muslim Superhero" Becoming a Superhero

Here's the reason why Marvel's "Muslim superhero",  Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, becomes a superhero, according to her Muslim writer, G. Willow Wilson, (a post 9/11 American convert to Islam) in an interview with Newsrama:

Nrama: I think one of the reasons people enjoy this book is the fact it’s a second generation hero in some regards. I’m not talking about the lineage, but about the idea of a fan of superheroes looking to become the thing they idolize – acknowledging superhero fandom, to some degree. What would you say about Kamala’s reasons here for becoming a hero and her roots as a fan?

Wilson: Her idea of what a hero should be--and probably no small portion of her bravery--comes from being a fan. She's already invested in this world. There is no question in her mind that when you see something going wrong, and you have the means to help, you must help. And that comes from having these other characters in her life, if only on her computer screen and the posters on her walls. Kamala is really the next logical step in the Marvel U--she's a superhero who grew up with superhero culture; she's an American growing up in a changing America. I think that's why so many different people love her. I know it's why I do.

As I've written before, the ONLY reason we're talking about Islam today is because of 9/11, is because of Jihad, yet not One "Muslim superhero" takes on jihadists, those who Marvel would like us to believe have "perverted" Islam. It's one thing for Marvel Comics to avoid the topic of Jihad, quite another to promote a "Muslim superhero" in wartime. And now both Wolverine and Spider-Man will be appearing in Ms. Marvel's comic, which might be a good sign, as I assume it's because of bad sales. And if so, it makes sense, as there's No demand for "muslim superheroes" in a country being targeted by Islam's True heroes, Muslim terrorists. 

Just as I drew Ms. Marvel above, evading Jihad, check out my piece on the

Interestingly, I see that the Muslim artist/writer of Islamic superhero comic book The 99 has had a death threat made against him by ISIL for somehow insulting the names of Allah.

So, even someone trying to promote Islam gets threatened.
