"The new Ms. Marvel is Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old student who favors hipster-geek glasses and Holden Caulfield-style hats. She's also Muslim, though she's no poster girl for the faith, according to G. Willow Wilson, her creator. 'Islam is both an essential part of her identity and something she struggles mightily with,' Wilson said in an interview posted on Marvel's website.

    So she's a Mulsim. So what? That has nothing to do with her being a superhero. I'm looking forward to seeing her in action. Does anyone know if there's going to be an animated series or tv show?

    I wonder how her religious beliefs will surface in the story lines. Seems like its' going to be interesting. Superheros have often lacked a spiritual dimension. Although, I think in her case, they're underplaying it.

    What's not to like? Sure she doesn't fill out a tight superheroine costumer like her predecessors, but she still cute and has a very developed personality. It's going to be interesting to see how her being Muslim plays out.

    I can agree that a character's religious beliefs help to color and round out that character. But at what cost?

    I do support and like the idea. However, I wonder if there have been superheros who were outwardly Christian. If so, who? If not, why not? Why is there now such attention being given to a character's religion? And why Islam? Why not a Christian denomination? Or Hindu? Or Buddhist?

    She's also Pakistani so there's some politics, too, so I think that's being underplayed.
