Abstract

Can superheroes tell us something important about changing public attitudes towards young Muslim women? To answer this question, we compare how young people react to the portrayal of the superhero Ms. Marvel as a young Muslim woman in different locations in the Middle East and beyond. Our findings suggest that a superhero like Ms. Marvel can create a global discourse on gender and Islam that transcends specific cultural contexts.
