Marvel introduced a new Muslim girl as Ms. Marvel. It’s a good idea, but I feel that this move is going to be all publicity and people will get bored with it within a few months.
Marvel did the same thing with Northstar’s wedding, and that book is currently canceled.
Marvel did the same thing with Miles, and while he has a decent sized fanbase, it seems that his own book (and universe) is ending soon.
You know what I want from you Tumblr? Prove me wrong. Prove to me that an ongoing staring a Muslim hero can last more than a few years. Prove to me that you aren’t just getting excited about the premise, and then skip out on buying the next few issues. Prove to me that you are going to pre-order this book and will be a loyal fan, and not someone who gets distracted by the next new thing down the line.
I have seen this thing many times before, and it’s maddening how quickly fans go from above and beyond excited to flat out forgetting said thing even exists.
I want to be wrong. Prove me wrong.
