It’s no secret that TMS loves Kamala Khan: Marvel’s most important superhero in these tough, xenophobic times, a character who provides a model for other comic books and whose image has been used to fight Islamophobia and raise money for the ACLU.

Watch for the joy of the fan film and the rage of asking yourself, “Why hasn’t Marvel given this character a movie yet?” (via Nerdist)
