Meet G. Willow Wilson, the Muslim Woman Revolutionizing Superhero Comics

aslanmedia:

Vulture Magazine interviews Willow Wilson, a Muslim comic artist who created the female Muslim superhero Kamala Khan for Marvel. 

Kamala Khan is a 16 year old child of immigrant parents from Pakistan living in Jersey City who, like any other superhero, fights bad guys and saves the day. Equally as interesting as Kamala is her creator, Willow Wilson, who resembled the average white woman - before she converted to Islam. 

Muslim superhero comics are nothing new— Naif Al-Mutawa from Kuwait created the 99, a group of Muslim superheroes from around the world that resemble all of Allah’s 99 traits. 19 year old Deena Mohamed created the Muslim veiled superhero Qahera who fights social problems affecting women in Egypt. But what Miss Kamala Khan represents is one of the first mainstream Muslim superheroes in the United States
