Marvel Comics Introducing a Muslim Girl Superhero

I’m not understanding the argument for the character to become an atheist instead of remaining a Muslim with some social glitches I think a lot of people can identify with. Lots of people have kind of difficult, backwards, parents or relatives that mean well but are a PITA - and being Muslim to have these kinds of relatives is definitely not a requirement.

I think it’s a neat idea for a character. It might not fit everyone’s idea of what she should be, but I think it was a bold move, and it leaves a lot of latitude for her to evolve whichever way the writers decide to go with her.
