Autism Representation in Superhero Media: A Diverse Spectrum

As someone on the autism spectrum, I’ve always been keenly aware of how autism is portrayed in media. Recently, after watching “The Marvels,” I reflected on Kamala Khan’s character in Ms. Marvel and her perception within the autistic community.

Is Kamala Khan Autistic?

Marvel has not officially labeled Kamala Khan as autistic, but her traits have sparked debates. For instance, an article from Mythcreants observes, “Kamala’s hyperfocus on superheroes and her intense imagination are typical of ADHD, but they’re also common in autistic people.” This overlap in symptoms fuels speculation about her neurodiversity. read more

Disney Missed The Mark With “The Marvels” Movie – Review.

As a long-time fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I approached “The Marvels” with high expectations, especially given the buzz around cameo appearances of iconic characters like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) in the trailers. However, my anticipation quickly turned to disappointment when these scenes were noticeably absent from the actual film. This bait-and-switch tactic set a disheartening tone for the rest of the movie.

Captain Marvel Super Hero(ine) Comic Movie Review About Girl Power & The Feminist Movement

I just watched Captain Marvel lastnight. For those living under a rock, Captain Marvel is the leader of Marvel’s Avengers. She’s a famous super hero(ine) and tough as nails army (airforce) girl turned super hero.

She’s not new, created by famous comic book legend, Stan Lee, and making her comic book debut in 1967.

The movie however is more recent, releasing about 2 years ago in March of 2019.

So just a heads up – yes I am a woman, but I am definitely not a feminist. I don’t really like the movement or concept that a woman can only be strong if she dresses and acts like a man. I am very much a girly girl. I don’t wear makeup (mostly cuz I’m too lazy and also have no idea how to wear it correctly lol). But I do love me some dresses, and I’d consider my personality to be more on the sweet and timid side and softly spoken, and also sometimes passionate or bubbly when I’m chatting about my interests. My interests may sometimes overlap with tomboy interests when it comes to geeky things like anime or video games, but that’s about it. I’m not into sports or whatever else most tomboy girls are into. read more
