Perhaps a great story would be our hero, Kamala, traveling 1000 years into the future where all modern religions have inevitably devolved into mythology, like the Norse and Greek pantheons of the past have.

Why are you assuming that modern religions will inevitably devolve into mythology? That’s a strange assumption, since the growth of irreligion has been relatively modest, and religions as ancient as the Norse and Greek have not died out (Judaism, for one).

There, she can find out Allah/Yahweh has degenerated in power into a flawed hero little different than Thor, and confront the reality of her faith.

I’m sorry, I can’t really tell what you’re saying here. The ‘reality’ of her faith, in the Marvel universe, would be the existence of a supernatural being, but the existence of other supernatural beings, too, right?

Since it’s set in the future where Allah/Yahweh is myth, much like Thor is today, it wouldn’t be offensive to anyone. Right?

But… we’re talking about the Marvel universe, where Thor is a reality, not a myth.

Your argument here is terribly confused, you seem to keep talking about the Marvel universe as though it’s our universe.
