Marvel launches an app with politically motivated elements involved

CNET announced Marvel's produced a mobile app featuring the PC takes on Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel:
Learning to read and write can be daunting for kids, but with the new Marvel Hero Tales mobile app from Kuato Studios, little ones hopefully can get some help from Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and other Marvel greats.

The free app, available on iOS and Android, encourages kids from 7 to 11 to write their own Marvel stories while developing their language and reading skills.

The Marvel Hero Tales app lets kids follow superheroes like Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Captain America and Captain Marvel as they "level up" by completing activities such as word collection and comprehension of words.
And yes, as you probably guessed, it's the Muslim Ms. Marvel and Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel they're talking about, and from the picture they provided, Carol appears to be wearing the cowl that makes her look like she's got a mohawk. But of course, it's the character built on Islamism that's really troubling and telling something, because that's basically all she's built on and was intended to represent since Marvel forced it upon their universe 6 years ago. And now, regardless of how low the title sells, they continue to shove an otherwise unproven creation onto their multimedia ventures proper, almost like how Gambit was flung into X-Men cartoons nearly 2 years after his debut, despite not being well written.

If there's any app realist parents would do well not to download for their children to learn from, it's this one with its politically motivated creation involved, and come to think of it, that Carol Danvers would continue to be subject to the poorly developed role she's got is another reason why this app is an injustice to her as well.

"But of course, it's the character built on Islamism that's really troubling and telling something, because that's basically all she's built on and was intended to represent"

She was built first on being a teenage high schoolgirl that younger girls could relate to. Marvel had had male heroes like that before - early Spider-Man, early Nova - but can't think of any girls. Sort of a cross between superman, Plastic Man, and Betty and Veronica. Her Pakistani-American heritage, and how to reconcile the two, were more important than Islam itself, although it is hard to split apart the two sometimes. She was not strictly observant - she kept halal and confided in an imam, but didn't wear a head covering and didn't worry about religious doctrine and ideas, and had lots of friends from other backgrounds. Family was an important component too. The book was clever, with a sense of humor and adventure. Remains to be seen if the new writer can do as good a job.

If it was conservative in tone, you'd be praising this app to high heaven.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
