Ms. Marvel’s editor Sana Amanat told The Associated Press the series reflects the struggles of an ordinary teenager from a “desire to explore the Muslim-American diaspora from an authentic perspective.”
Fakhraie says she was encouraged by the portrayal of Khan as a teenage girl with ordinary problems, who isn’t exoticized or represented as somehow different. “It’s stuff that a lot of Americans deal with,” she said. “Everyone has their problems, and they’re just going to portray them as problems, not as Muslim problems.”
Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso told The AP, “Kamala is not unlike Peter Parker," she said. "She’s a 16-year-old girl from the suburbs who is trying to figure out who she is and trying to forge an identity when she suddenly bestows great power and learns the great responsibility that comes with it."
