Farhan Akhtar reveals why Marvel took so long to select a Muslim character


You might not know this, but Marvel’s first Muslim superhero finally came out in a comic book.

Marvel has always been very careful with the depiction of Islam and Muslims, so it was surprising to find out that they didn’t put Omar Hassan on their horizon until 2014. When they did decide to introduce a Muslim superhero, he was a genius Pakistani teen named Kamala Khan who made her debut in the comic book “Ms. Marvel.

Introduction to The Ms. Marvel

The name Ms. Marvel is a reference to the first Marvel character Ms. Marvel, a superheroine who appeared in the 1970s.

The protagonist of this series is Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel’s female counterpart), a lieutenant in the United States Air Force. Carol Danvers is a member of an earlier incarnation of the Avengers. She is skilled with flight, combat, and superhuman abilities.


She can also use a cosmic-level version of the electromagnetic field that powers all matter to absorb energy (and potentially convert it into any form of energy she desires) while absorbing random objects and moving at superhuman speeds. Carol Danvers’ pantheon is called the Kree, a race of blue-skinned aliens with large eyes that live on their planet Korugar. The Kree’s true god is the Supreme Intelligence and he rules all their affairs.

The storyline of The Ms. Marvel

Kamala Khan is an American 16-year-old Pakistani Muslim of Pakistani descent living in Jersey City, New Jersey. She was raised in a traditional Islamic household and, as such, she is expected to restrain herself from old Western cultural norms.


One day Kamala visits her idol Carol Danvers AKA Ms. Marvel and discovers that she was killed by Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell). Captain America suggests that she take over the title and costume of Ms. Marvel.

Kamala Khan eventually decides to become a superheroine, but due to her inexperience, she is easily defeated by her enemy, the Inventor. After this encounter with the Inventor, Kamala returns home realizing that she is inexperienced and unfit to fight crime.

She then asks Captain Marvel for help on how she can best help people without having powers. Carol tells her that all she needs is Yella (courage) and heart and that power doesn’t matter as much as determination.

Ms. Marvel fights Ultron alongside Captain America, Ant-Man, and Wasp, but misses out on meeting Captain Marvel

“Ms. Marvel has always been my third favorite Avenger. She’s as tough as Iron Man, but sometimes needs coaching from Spider-Man and Black Widow on how to deal with her temper”.


Based on the comics and TV show, I was expecting to meet Carol Danvers in “Captain America: Civil War”. I knew she wasn’t going to appear, but I was eager to see what they did with her character.

The problem is that there’s not a single mention of Captain Marvel anywhere in the movie.
It’s a movie for Marvel fans and general audiences with a lot of action, robot vs. robot battles, and explosions. It’s not about Carol Danvers as much as her compatriots and the more personal side of the story with Tony Stark (they made out even deeper at the end of this one), and some Tony-centric subplots.

Ms. Marvel spends most of her time fighting alongside other heroes (the Avengers) against Thanos’ minions in New York City, but she’s not the focus.

So, what do you think about Ms. Marvel?
