Hollywood could learn from comics on Islamophobia

  • Marvel Comics is soon to introduce a new superhero: A Muslim-American teenage girl, who could prove to be as influential and the real-life hero Malala Yousufzai. 

    The comic book industry is trying to fight the stereotype and perhaps it is "time that other creative industries take a page from the comic book industry and assume responsibility for their role in influencing the subconscious of our society and our perception of others," Muaaz Khan wrote at the Guardian. 

    "What began in the '90s with movies such as Executive Decision and The Siege has ballooned with television series such as 24 and Homeland."
