You need a strong stomach to be a kid these days. The push to instill political correctness through comic books has created a female Muslim superhero:
Marvel Comics is bringing Ms. Marvel back as a 16-year-old daughter of Pakistani immigrants living in Jersey City named Kamala Khan.
Here’s what Ms. Marvel used to look like:
Not very politically correct, what with the white skin and even blonde hair. But that’s been fixed.
The reengineered Ms. Marvel isn’t the first attempt by the comics industry to promote Islam:
DC Comics last fall relaunched its “Green Lantern” series with Simon Baz, an Arab American and Muslim. … Marvel Comics has Dust, a young Afghan woman whose mutant ability to manipulate sand and dust has been part of the popular X-Men books. DC Comics in late 2010 introduced Nightrunner, a young Muslim hero of Algerian descent reared in Paris.
Jersey City is a suitable home for Kamala Khan, having a large Muslim population. That’s where the first World Trade Center attack originated. But Ms. Muslim Moonbat Marvel won’t have to worry about any unwelcome attention if she crosses the Hudson River into Lower Manhattan. New York’s incoming communist mayor has proclaimed, “I will ban all surveillance and profiling of Muslims.” The WTC is all forgotten now.
Give it another few years and the moonbats who create comic books will have Kamala Khan striking heroic blows against capitalism and Islamophobia by using her superpowers to steer airliners into office towers.
