 Quote1Fabulous. Now I’m in trouble, too. This has to have happened for a reason. I saved one life, does it stop there or do I go on? Maybe this is what I’ve been waiting for. Maybe I’m finally part of something… bigger. ‘Quote2— Kamala Khan src 

Before you all panic let me just point out that she is not the first Muslim Marvel character ; Simon Baz, Abu Mūsā Jābir ibn Hayyān al-Azdi, Soraya Khorasani to name just a few, In fact there’s so many more that even I could not retain them all.
