Boston Globe: The new Ms Marvel is a Muslim teenager

Ms MarvelMarvel this Wednesday will give the first Muslim woman ever its own comic book series, reports the Boston Globe.
The new Ms Marvel is 16-year-old Kamala Khan who is replacing the original Ms Marvel, a blue-eyed blonde.
The comic was inspired by Marvel editor Sana Amanat who is Pakistani American.
Kamala will struggle with her identity as a daughter of Muslim immigrants living in New Jersey, perhaps much like Amanat did as a child.
Ms Marvel will be penned by graphic novelist G. Willow Wilson who said she wanted to give Pakistani Americans their own superhero.
You can learn more about Kamala, Amanat and Wilson in the Boston Globe.
