>Literally everyone who has touched her is capable of writing Kamala well
Can't wait for Wilson to be moved off Ms Marvel, she's holding the character back
well, Bendis does write everyone like a quirky teen
Her part in Gwenpool was good too
>she could have been Jewish and the story would be the same.
You would prefer ever story of hers to be just saying "BTW I'm Muslim" over and over again? Because that's dumb.
It would be like having a gay superhero screaming "I FUCK MEN" every time he dove into battle.
Wait who did the Jugernaut kiss?
Yeah pretty much what >>79835898 said. It was really just your typical "Oh I don't celebrate Christmas on Christmas!" story, complete with "We eat fast food instead of having Christmas dinner".
If Wilson wrote it there would be, I don't know, probably a completely different story. Maybe a throwaway mention of Isa somewhere instead of a straight up "Oh it's Christmas but we're not Christians" like every single other story, I don't know. It'd feel more real in any case.
I guess what I'm getting at is, if Kamala was Jewish, the story of her interactions with the rogue Inhumans would be different, because it was drawing on specific parallels with Islam. But if Kamala was Jewish, you wouldn't even have to change any of the words and the Christmas story would be the same.
Let me see:
>Mark Waid, multiple eisner award winning writer, creator of Impulse
>Dan Slott, writer whom people liked when he was working on C-listers and started to suck when he went to write Spider-Man
Sure it's everyone.
Wait until hack like Hopeless, who has no goddam fucking idea how to write teenagers, women or anything (as both Avengers Arena/undercover and All-new X-men prove. I mean Laura saying "BRB"? Teenagers in real life don't even talk like that!), you will see how horrible she can be in bad hands.
I'd prefer if a Muslim OR Jewish superhero character's book didn't have to teach us their very special words for thinks, for the sake of 'enlightenment'. I wouldn't want a Captain America book to teach me about, as a topical example, eaxactly why Valentine was a saint, either. You can have a story where Ms,M is hungry because it's Ramadan without having to EXPLAIN why that would have her hungry during the day. If I want to know that, I'll look it up.
Nakia is certainly for squishy.
But only for muff.
>You can have a story where Ms,M is hungry because it's Ramadan without having to EXPLAIN why that would have her hungry during the day.
No that's just not informing the audience.
I get what you're trying to say but if you know for a fact that your target audience doesn't know what Ramadan is it's bad storytelling to just go, "Welp it's their job to research all the elements of my story" instead of delivering information in the narrative like you're supposed to.
Shame Alphona is the only one who draws her with a character and not in generic manner.
Theres a fine line though. You can't have lengthy bits of exposition. And you cant pull a Final Fantasy 13 and give the readers a massive fucking glossary. At the same time you can't just leave the readers in the dark and not explain anything.
Well, there are problems any way you do it.
Exposition nothing and you need half an issue to explain even basic concepts of culture or science within the narrative.
Explain it all in text and you look lazy.
Make characters do exposition talk and you look like a hack.
Leave shit unexplained and half your readers might be completely baffled, some possibly frustrated enough to drop the book.
MM is doing just fine with little translation notes and easily grasped concepts.
I bet the wedding will be full of them.
