Ms Marvel Becomes Village Voice Cover Star

Kamala Khan has finally made the big time. Sure, she already joined (and then quit) Avengers, but now Ms. Marvel has graced the cover of the New York City alternative weekly The Village Voice.

Depicted by illustrator Autumn Whitehearst in a pose that pays homage to J. Howard Miller’s classic Rosie the Riveter “We Can Do It!” piece, Khan is billed as “The Superhero for Our Times.”

The cover is accompanied by an article by Mallika Rao titled “Ms. Marvel Will Save You Now” that includes extensive quotes from “Ms. Marvel” co-creators Sana Amanat and G. Willow Wilson, and focuses on the “new and inclusive world of comics,” in which an increasingly diverse range of non-white or non-male characters are being embraced by a new generation of fans.

The piece also looks at how the North American comics industry, which is still dominated by creators who are both white and male, is slowly waking up to the fact that having only “white men writing female and p.o.c. characters isn’t a great look in 2016.”

In addition to her own monthly title, by Wilson, Mirka Andolfo, Adrian Alphona and others, Ms. Marvel also appears in “Champions,” written by Mark Waid and illustrated by Humberto Ramos. The first debuted just this week from Marvel.
