Marvel Comics Adds Muslim Chick Superhero (to Appease Marvel’s Muslim Chick Editor)

By Debbie Schlussel

No word on how many IEDs she’ll be carrying or how many Jews she’ll kill while saving Muslims from accidentally living near a pig farm or a swimming pool that features both sexes swimming at the same time. No word on how many gay Arafats she’ll pretend to sleep with either. How many Fort Hoods she’ll shoot up or bras she’ll rig with explosives to blow up planes. But Marvel is pimping you on a Muslim superhero. Oh, and since they couldn’t come up with anything new, she hijacks Captain Marvel’s uniform the way the 19 men hijacked planes on 9/11. As-Shazaam aleikum? No thanks.

Marvel’s Bait-and-Switch Muslima Superjihadista

By the way, note that this superheroine Muslima does not wear a hijab and is in a minidress. That’s how they bait and switch you on Islam. Just ask Betty Mahmoody. allahu FUBAR:

In February, as part of a continuing effort to diversify its offerings, Marvel Comics will begin a series whose lead character, Kamala Khan, is a teenage Muslim girl living in Jersey City. . . . Her genesis began . . . in a conversation between Sana Amanat and Steve Wacker, two editors at Marvel. “I was telling him some crazy anecdote about my childhood, growing up as a Muslim-American,” Ms. Amanat said. “He found it hilarious.” Ms. Amanat and Mr. Wacker noted the dearth of female superhero series and, even more so, of comics with cultural specificity.

When they told G. Willow Wilson, an author, comic book writer and convert to Islam, about their idea, she was eager to come on board as the series’ writer. “Any time you do something like this, it is a bit of a risk,” Ms. Wilson said. “You’re trying to bring the audience on board and they are used to seeing something else in the pages of a comic book.”










Kamala, whose family is from Pakistan, has devotedly followed the career of the blond, blue-eyed Carol Danvers, who now goes by Captain Marvel, a name she inherited from a male hero. When Kamala discovers her powers, including the ability to change shape, she takes on the code name Ms. Marvel — what Carol called herself when she began her superhero career. . . . The creative team is braced for all possible reactions. “I do expect some negativity,” Ms. Amanat said, “not only from people who are anti-Muslim, but people who are Muslim and might want the character portrayed in a particular light.”

But “this is not evangelism,” Ms. Wilson said.

Um, yes, it is. If they tell you it’s not about money, it’s about money. If they tell you it’s not about jihad, it’s about jihad.

The series, Ms. Wilson said, would deal with how familial and religious edicts mesh with super-heroics, which can require rules to be broken. As for Kamala, Ms. Wilson said the series was “about the universal experience of all American teenagers, feeling kind of isolated and finding what they are.” Though here, she adds, that happens “through the lens of being a Muslim-American” with superpowers.

Some Muslims already think they have superpowers. The thing is, they don’t. Strapping wires to your shoes and undies ain’ ta superpower. Nor is being jealous of Jews and Christians who achieve far more than those from your hateful religion can ever hope to.

And here’s a tip: there ain’t no 72 virgins. That’s not a superpower.

It’s an unrequited fantasy.

Nope, I can’t. And where’s Marvel’s Jewish superhero?

This isn’t what Muslims want – an Americanized Muslima super-heroine?

Islam is a a patriarchal, chauvinist and sexist cult. It won’t play well in the Muslim World. Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto was killed in part because she forgot her place as a woman.

The fictional Kamala Khan is unlikely to receive a more favorable reception.

Did this Super-Moooooslima get FGM at a young age? Also, anyone fighting with her should just drop her off in Saudi Arabia…that way she’ll take a billion years to get back at them…Mooooslimas can’t drive in Saudi Arabia. Also, she’ll prolly have to suffer through an arranged marriage…if she wasn’t already married by 9 to an old, dirty perv.

Or perhaps Dubai, where they throw females in filthy prisons for “sex crimes” they didn’t commit…and it does include an invasive genital rape check by a doctor so they can pervertedly see if you had sex that wasn’t approved of by the pervert state.

The Mooooslim pandering is beyond tiresome.

Skunky on November 5, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Skunky, you’re mixing up politics with religion :)

    John Malcolm on November 5, 2013 at 7:54 pm

      What’s your problem, John Malcolm Mohammed? You’re mixing up vomit for words.

      If you think Islam is a religion, you’re not worth responding to after this. Last time I looked the fraud of Islam was totally opposite of of what it SOMETIMES shills as religion. Sucks to be you if you don’t know that. That would be you mistaking a brain for a jellyfish blob.

      Skunky on November 5, 2013 at 8:03 pm

        Good Morning Skunky!

        Good reply to Mr Malcolm.

        The Islamist countries are ruled by a THEOCRACY, i.e. RELIGION-GOVERNMENT-SOCIETAL/CULTURAL…an ALL-IN-ONE SYSTEM.

        The religion is primary, e.g. IRAN’s highest authority is the AYATOLLAH using Islamic Religious Law (supposedly stated in the Qur’an and the Haddiths and, some say, the newest rulings superceding the older ones).

        The Roman Catholic Church is headquartered in Vatican City – an independent political entity separate from Italy – and rules itself as a Theocracy.

        Western Civilization advanced because of its Renaissance.

        I am waiting to hear about one taking place in the Middle East / Northern Africa / Arabic Countries in which the sovereignty of the individual is paramount…excepting Israel because they are already head and shoulders above their neighboring societies.

        YOU GO GIRL!

It’s only fair, Magneto is an Auschwitz survivor…and now her nemesis!!?? Interesting.

Alan on November 5, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    That’s….no, Alan, w-where was it mentioned that Magneto would be her nemesis? Dude, c’mon.

    John Malcolm on November 5, 2013 at 8:03 pm

This is like making Captain America a German during WWII.

Jonathan E. Grant on November 5, 2013 at 7:31 pm

“Um, yes, it is. If they tell you it’s not about money, it’s about money. If they tell you it’s not about jihad, it’s about jihad. ”

Truer words were never spoke.

DS_ROCKS! on November 5, 2013 at 7:31 pm

“Oh, and since they couldn’t come up with anything new, she hijacks Captain Marvel’s uniform the way the 19 men hijacked planes on 9/11″

Oh, then I guess Miles Morales “hijacked” Ultimate Spiderman from Peter Parker, right? And Bucky Barnes “hijacked” Captain America from Steve Rogers?
Seriously Debbie, its just a legacy character. With all due respect, you’re kinda taking this too far. It’s a fictional comic-book character! She can’t do any harm! Thats like saying Midnighter and Appollo (two openly-gay analogues for Superman and Batman)turned readers into sex-craved, gay rapists! And guess what? They didn’t! And by the way, I’m pretty sure most main-stream comic-book superheroes are Christian (I’m not sure about any Jewish ones, sorry).

John Malcolm on November 5, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Oh wait, never mind:)

Isn’t it funny that a lot of the people who seem to love these comic book superheros are wimpy, pasty, pimply losers (not everyone, but a lot). The types of people who could never stand up to a bully, so they imagine a superhero doing it for them.
They seem to be a major supporter of this PC bs, the 90-pound grrl beats up 50 people twice her size fantasies, and many other problems that are afflicting the culture.

Sam on November 5, 2013 at 8:25 pm

I did get a kick out of you mentioning gender segregation in swimming pools considering in an Orthodox Jewish area of NY a CHILDREN’S park is segregated according to gender.

Batboat on November 5, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Batty, how did you feel about a Mooooslima super hero’s (As if! We already have Ninjas…) ability to kill Jews W/IEDs, saving Mooooooslims from accidental pig farms, Mooooooslimas marrying gay Moooooslims like that dead, gay pig Arafat but pretending to sleep with them and plotting more Fort Hoods??

    Did you laugh hard at the satire as I did? I know you did. Because it was funny and made sport of how un-heroic Moooooslims are. Now THAT’s funny!!!! :P

    Skunky on November 5, 2013 at 9:15 pm

I find it interesting that “John Malcolm” is phonemically similar to “John Allen Muhammad.” Coincidence?

Archie on November 5, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Yes, dude it’s a coincidence, don’t worry:)

    John Malcolm on November 6, 2013 at 7:37 am

    Yes Archie, that is why I called the smelly Moooooslim apologist John Malcolm Mohammed.

    He’s a hit & runner here. Because he knows he can’t factually defend Islam here.

    And only dumb, Moooooslim dupes think their faux “religion” is actually a religion. A totally illegitimate religion (it’s in “Genesis”) but a more loony, barbaric socio-political freedom killer and control taker.

    Skunky on November 6, 2013 at 7:52 am

Ok, since we all know that the muslim population here in the US is just fewer than 1%, since their the small minority in this country, there lobbyists have a HUGE influence in this country, primarily related to politics (irony, last I learned, we have “Separation of Church & State in the 1st Amendment).

And I wouldn’t be surprised that CAIR, ISNA, ADC, and other Muslim and Arab lobbying bribed and corrupted this magazine company with x-amounts of money for them to have a “Muslimah” character in their magazine, I wouldn’t be surprised Debbie and other’s here?

Sean R. on November 5, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    Hello Sean!

    The good news is that this group in the U.S. IS only 1% +/- !!!

    Marvel has to satisfy stockholders and if sufficient numbers of these comic books are not sold, it’ll go the way of the EDSEL! (Apologies to FOMOCO)

    Dennis on November 6, 2013 at 11:28 am

I can see the full Islamic press on this one. Marvel Comics has not been doing well for a very long time. Their comic books have been disappearing from displays in supermarkets and dime stores for years.

Worry01 on November 5, 2013 at 10:21 pm

suzane dabajah made history by becoming the first muslim women council president in dearborn

attorney zeina elhassan on November 5, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    “First Women” ? ROFL.

    Worry01 on November 6, 2013 at 12:33 am

The only way I would support this is if Ms. Muslim spent all of her time rescuing Muslim women from burning buildings like those poor girls in Saudi Arabia who burned to death and beating up the male Muslim bullies that prohibit girls from going to school in Pakistan. But I would bet her Big Bad is going to be an anti-Muslim conspiracy that hypnotizes good, gentle, innocent Muslims to commit acts of terror. After all, it’s the religion of peace.

Fleiter on November 6, 2013 at 9:26 am

Muslim Superhero = oxymoron

Jim on November 6, 2013 at 12:10 pm

One, it’s pretty damn stupid because even the most lax Muslim woman is supposed to dress ‘modestly’ and her superhero costume is anything but.

Two, no need to complain because stupid comics lose money and die. The best case would be for CAIR to waste a lot of money buying issues and trashing them to pump up sales numbers.

luagha on November 6, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Super Muslima….

Flies through the air with one small trip over her too-long burqa, which has been surgically attached to her skull so no one can ever take it off of her.

Super Muslima rips out her own clitoris with her bare hands and does some serious self-inflicted damage to the labias, too.

She gives birth to 200 boys and sends each one off to be “martyred.”

Her husband tries repeatedly to burn her with acid, but it just drips off. She foils his plans for a family honor-killing by burning the house down.

She can churn out sewing thousands of niqabs every day. Buys her own electrical cord for her husband to beat her with, so he won’t be troubled getting his own.

Shameless Sharia on November 6, 2013 at 2:56 pm

Honestly, is there an actual demand for a non-veiled, miniskirt-wearing Muslim superheroine? This female editor is probably going to end up with a fatwa on her head for violating who knows how many edicts of Islam.

I suppose Dust (from the X-Men camp) wasn’t enough; now they have to come up with one to slap the Marvel name on.

BTW, whatever happened to “The 99″? Did it flop? I went to the webpage and, while still up, it hasn’t been updated in over 6 months.

Alan W. on November 6, 2013 at 3:06 pm

I wondering if she came about her superpowers genetically. Perhaps she is descended from one of Mohammed’s pre-teen wives.

CornCoLeo on November 6, 2013 at 5:28 pm

A Jewish, Marvel superhero? Kitty Pryde.

Underzog on November 6, 2013 at 6:51 pm

So the left hand got that large by what exercise and for what purpose? Holding large vibrating objects in position and repeating the action of pushing and pulling it back and forth? Quite frequently, and with some heft by the look of it. Maybe something that weighs around 25 pounds? 3 sets of 2000 reps?
Just an OBSERVATION, that’s all.

samurai on November 6, 2013 at 8:09 pm

MC didn’t do its homework.

Uncovered hair? Miniskirt? Yeah, like I’m sure that will over well.

MC, get ready to incur Muslim wrath, just like those Danish comic publishers did. Remember?

Esser Agaroth on November 7, 2013 at 2:05 am

It makes sense

The number of Jews in Disney ,Marvel’s parent company ensures more PC diversity nonsense.

Classic Disney will never stoop this low

steveba on November 7, 2013 at 7:36 am

    What a pleasure to see steve baaaa again!

    skzion on November 7, 2013 at 11:03 am

As for Jewish superheroes, don’t forget Benjamin Grimm, the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing of the Fantastic Four. He’s been a main character in countless movies and cartoons.

luagha on November 7, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Okay, let me allow my inner geek to come out. Does anyone remember the Marvel Comics Israeli superheroine named Sabra? I remember reading a Marvel comic years ago showing that she another superhero named “The Arabian Knight” didn’t get along because she was Jewish and he was Muslim, and they constantly bickered over the Palestinian issue.

Given the status of women in Muslim societies, I’m not too sure how a Muslim superheroine is going to work…

DTrain on November 7, 2013 at 1:06 pm

I usually do not agree with Alan Moore but I have read articles that where he mentioned he would never have anything to do with the comics industry albeit not for the PC indoctrination but how he got screwed out of royalties.

With all the latest silliness coming out, seems the comic industry is in need for good writer but I stopped reading them back when Marvel came out with their version of the Captain America who was a black man name Isiah Bradley. Axel Alonso and Bill Jemas, Marvel publishers admitted they created the Isiah Bradley as a reference to the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Nothing wrong with talking about the past but if it is in the name for political correctness then in my opinion it cheapens the incident.
