Yes, actually. In her book, there's no down side to being Muslim. In fact, she has a Jewish friend (which is you know anything about the Middle East, Muslims HATE the Jews, they honestly believe that Hitler did not go far enough. They LOVE him over there, I have family that lived in several countries in the Middle East. It's a little scary over there.) Everyone loves her. All her villains are white people, typically blond. And no Muslim is portrayed as terrorists (which a lot of the violence around the world has been for the last 30 years. And not just Muslim, but most of it has been) or even villains.Scots Dragon wrote: ↑Fri May 18, 2018 11:26 pmUh. There's so much wrong to unpack there. 'Muslim propaganda'? Really?
I'm sorry, but Ms. Marvel is propaganda. Has been since it's first issue.
Sorry, Marvel has 'failed upwards' so many writers and artists books that I'm having a hard time remembering which comics are still active or being rebooted. Again.
But this is all a distraction to my main point: Comics have ALWAYS been diverse. Since Day One, Marvel's first hero was a sea based 'alien' (Namor) trying to be a man and hero. And since then, we've had Black heroes, even women, (Storm, a North African native, led one of the most popular comic book teams, often selling in the quarter million range monthly, the bubbly Wasp was the leader of the Avengers as well), we've had Gay heroes (Alpha Flight's Northstar is. And if you want Lesbian Action? DC got you covered with Rene Montoya and Batwoman, whose name I forget) all of which have been around LONG before this regressive BS showed up 4 years ago.
Make GOOD characters, human characters, with flaws, foibles, habits and give them interesting things to do, have them fail and then succeed, and your audience will come to you. There's a reason that Spiderman and Black Panther films did so well, despite not being very progressive. The characters were interesting, they failed and were wrong, but they also succeeded when they had to.
