This is 100% ok. Carol Danvers hasn't turned into a Muslim American teenager..


YET.

See issue #2 of Ms Marvel for this surprising twist.

I liked her 3 or 4 issues of Supergirl too! Pretty Deadly was OK.

Anyways, just saw that ADRIAN ALPHONA is drawing this, which changes everything, I am in.

If the character fails, it's 'cause she'll be revealed as a Skrull.

Otherwise, who cares. Bring on the comic and then lets judge.

But my money is this is a another Spider-Woman/Spider-Girl thing... Marvel has a lousy track record of relaunching new versions of female characters. This will be Ms Marvel III.

She's Indian, Pakistani, or Persian descent. "Khan" was the title that the Mongol (Mughal) rulers of Persia and Indian subcontinent took.

If you have a last name of khan, it probably means an ancestor of yours worked for the Mughal imperial court or was descended from a Mughal family.

So, Kamala is not Arabic. Her name, as well, is Hindi-ish. Kamala means "aroma" or perfume.


"Aroma Queen"?

Does Marvel REALLY think that comic fans are THAT stupid? Radioactive spiders, supersoldier octogenarians, gods come to Earth, ok fine. But it's a slap in the face that they think we're dumb enough to accept that anyone "idolizes Carol Danvers".

:groucho:


I've realized that this is my biggest issue with this series. Can't get into the "Carol is so awesome and should think so too" camp.

She's Pakistani. It's in the article.

Why?

Shouldn't you have taken the identity of someone worthwhile?

When asked about potential stereotyping of names and cultures as "anything more exotic than Texas means fuck it, our readers don't know any better", several anonymous marvel sources offered comment.

"Bozhe moi, Tovarisch! We never had to worry about such things back on the bread lines, comrade!"

"Ah, faith and begorrah, laddie buck! Tis true, they think us Irish all sounds like retarded leprechauns, but tis all in good fun! Least it's not Whacking Day!"

"Unglaublich! Now you see, ve had been saying it for years, mein freund! "

"Ah tell ya'll, Shugah, ah just don't see what the problem is. Ya'll just like making a ruckus."

Ladies and gentlemen, do not go to Westchester, it is a silly place.
