Kamala Khan and her creators named among 'kick-ass Muslims'

Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson and editor Sana Amanat are in impressive company on BuzzFeed list of "21 Kick-Ass Muslims Who Changed the Narrative in 2014, which includes a Nobel laureate, a religious scholar and an Olympic athlete.

Written by Ahmed Ali Akbar, the rundown singles out not only the duo behind the creation of teenager Kamala Khan, the Pakistani American superhero, but also the character herself.

"Her book has been a massive hit for the majority-white Marvel universe," he writes, "showing that the comic world is ready for more diversity, with a well-adjusted, spunky Muslim leading the charge."

Also on the list: Syrian-Canadian pro wrestler Sami Zayn, who recently won the NXT Championship.
