Re: New Ms. Marvel

The article say the character admires Carol Danvers and that's why she takes the name. The feminist origins of the term aren't really relevant to her taking the name and neither are any ties she might have to conservative Islam. The picture of the character shows a woman is less than modest garb ( by fundamentalist Muslim standards ) so I doubt the character is in the chador/hijab camp.
