It was recently announced that G. Willow Wilson will be writing a new comic series for Marvel Comics that features a female Muslim superhero. The main character, Kamala Khan, is from Jersey City, but her family is from Pakistan. According to Willow, the series will deal with how familial and religious edicts mesh with super-heroics, which can require rules to be broken.
