In Brief

Marvel Comics has introduced a series whose lead character is a teenage kid living in New Jersey, who faces familial and cultural challenges while trying to fight bad guys.

 

There is a new superhero joining the Marvel Comics family, and she is a Muslim-American teenager named Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel. The character is just your typical teenager, battling self-identity issues, family problems and supervillains.

Khan, who is Pakistani, will be portrayed as a teen who looks up to Captain Marvel (another Marvel character – blonde-haired, blue-eyed Carol Danvers) as a role model, and when she discovers she has her own superpowers – shapeshifting – decides to take on the former mantle of her idol.
