Marvel's Avengers game has Muslim Ms. Marvel pamphlets and trades hidden in the program

According to this fawning article by VG24/7, it looks like the obsession with pushing a politicized creation onto gamers as much as comics readers has found its way into the program of Marvel's Avengers:
Whether you enjoy the films or the comics in real life, there are a bunch of cool Marvel comics to hunt down in Marvel’s Avengers.
What are the odds none of the comics they speak of include those published before the turn of the century? That's the most annoying minus in these very modern products that aren't "cool".
Alongside the likes of Thor and Black Widow, Kamala Khan AKA Ms Marvel gets her own comic book line in Marvel’s Avengers. Collecting comic books is quite a time-consuming activity, but you’ll be boosting your stats along the way, so it’s a worthwhile endeavour.

There are five Ms Marvel comic books to collect during the main campaign, so let’s take a look at where to find them. [...]

The easiest way to get your hands on a Ms Marvel comic is by completing Kamala’s Harm Room tutorial. You’ll receive a random comic for your troubles but chances are it’ll be a Ms Marvel one, so give it a go once it unlocks.
No thank you, we could do without these propaganda tricks video games aren't immune to. It's been at least 7 years since Marvel foisted this politically motivated creation on their comics, and now, they're foisting it on video games to boot. Why is Khan and her religion such a big deal, but not Daredevil and his, for example? Or, why not Scarlet Witch and any notable comics she starred in before the turn of the century, or even Black Widow? Even She-Hulk had far better material years before that could make for great treasure hunting in a game like this, and there could be breaking-4th-wall jokes made as well, in the style of John Byrne's 1989-94 series starring Jennifer Walters. When such a brand new choice as Khan is made today for merchandise, it's a sign something's rotten in Denmark, because of the elements her character's built on.

This is precisely why anybody thinking of spending money on what could be an expensive game would be strongly advised to spend elsewhere. The whole MCU has practically been ruined by commercialism for more than 20 years now, along with the machinations of Joe Quesada, lest we forget. I just don't see the use of wasting so much money on a product that's clearly an effort to push stealth politics into video games.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • 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.
