New Marvel Superhero Is An Arab American From Dearborn, Michigan
An exciting new turn on the Ms. Marvel series has just been announced, as a new character by the name of Amulet has come into the picture, adding diversity and a local twist to the Marvel Universe. Amulet was co-created by Detroit native Saladin Ahmed, writer of "Magnificent Ms. Marvel," and Jordanian American illustrator Sara Alfageeh. Marvel.com recently made the announcement and Ahmed teased what his powers consist of and expressed his excitement for the hero:
"Amulet is a fun, mysterious new character who will be playing a role in MAGNIFICENT MS. MARVEL for months to come. We're keeping most of the details of him close to our chests, but I can tell you that his powers are magical in nature, and that he is an Arab-American Super Hero from Michigan.
"As an Arab-American who basically learned to read from Marvel Comics, being able to team up with the phenomenally talented Sara Alfageeh to bring Amulet into the Marvel Universe is literally a dream come true. We can't wait for fans to meet him!"
