My Thoughts

So this was the first comic I’d read in a while(over a year) and as much as I liked it, the more I’ve reflected on it the more problematic I find it.

I’m a huge Marvel fan and so Marvel is my go to for comics, don’t get me wrong though I love a bit of DC comics too 😉

Going into this comic I didn’t actually know much except that this girl was suddenly going to have some extraordinary gift given to her.I didn’t know that the main character was going to be from a Muslim background so when I found this out I was quite happy as I rarely see this in comics! I however later found that the comic showed the stereotype of Muslims such as Strict parents, I found this ruined it a bit for me.

The character was quite relatable in the sense she felt like she didn’t fit into the crowd at her school.This is quite a diverse comic but again I also felt like her character wasn’t relatable to people of a Muslim Background because personally I felt like it was saying that her being Muslim stopped her from doing things and I just felt like thats not a good portrayal.

I’m still a bit conflicted on this so I don’t know if I’ll be reading the next volume.

Rating: 3/5
