I think it is great that Marvel is showcasing characters like Moon Girl and Ms Marvel. Not only are they minority characters but they are non-trophe female characters. To me this was always the charm of Firestar (and to a lesser degree Scarlet Witch), and yet, I had to watch Marvel writers constantly screw over Firestar and finally paint her simply as the girlfriend and that pissed me off. (Seriously, her home life is too normal Mr Marvel Writer Fabien? She had a father figure die in her arms, and almost lost her real father the same way. Hey, and what about her mother? Shit poor writing, dude. You just like the male characters better. You never could write women and you screwed your female characters over). Marvel still wastes her. So I guess, I am a little jealous on her behalf.
So there is that. Which is why I was a little resentful of Ms Marvel here because that is the way the women in New Warriors should have been. Really, should have been.
But I love this series because of Lunella who has two loving parents and value her own intelligence, who doesn't care when a guy says he loves her because she is fourth grade. That is so important today. So important. So give Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur to all the women and girls in your life. Because this series is actually right.
