Here is Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel. An Pakistani-American teen from New Jersey created by Marvel Comics editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona, Khan is Marvel’s first Muslim character to headline her own comic book. Khan made her first appearance in Captain Marvel #14 (August 2013) before going on to star in the solo series Ms. Marvel, which debuted in February 2014.
She discovers she has shapeshifting “embiggening” abilities, after her Inhuman genes were triggered in the aftermath of the Inhumanity storyline and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel. to many she has become a symbol of modern America- or what America could be — and has seen Sana Amanat honoured at the White House (the previous White House, obviously).
It just so happens that she is sharing a pose with another, more famous, icon of America: Uncle Sam — who seems to have some embiggening powers of his own. Is Uncle Sam an Inhuman, as well?
Uncle Sam is a common national personification of the American government or the United States in general since the early 19th century (and we may learn a little more of that history later today). Uncle Sam has been a popular symbol of the US government in American culture and a manifestation of patriotic emotion. Could we get a team-up sometime?
