Message to Trump? Marvel enlists Ms. Marvel, publisher's Muslim-American hero, to ask readers to vote
by Ethan Sacks
Marvel Comics elected to go with an interesting candidate to appeal for readers to get out and vote: the publisher's popular Muslim-American superhero.
Ms. Marvel, whose secret identity is 16-year-old Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American of Jersey City, battles a more insidious foe than Doctor Doom in the next issue of her comic -- voter apathy.
"By not voting you're not sending a message, you're just lumping yourself in with the millions of people who didn't vote because they don't know how or they don't care," Khan admonishes a disgruntled senior in a sequence from "Ms. Marvel" # 13.
