-MARVEL IS DOING YOUNG GIRLS RIGHT!

First off: PHRASING, Jesse!

But seriously, with Ms. Marvel and now Moon Girl, it’s never been a better time to be a young nerd girl reading comics. They’ve even bucked the forever-long trend of most heroes being white by presenting diversity not as a political move, but as a truth of the way the world actually exists.

Having women take the mantles of Captain Marvel and Thor felt to some like a forced response, but it helped to open a door to a Marvel Universe where girls can be heroes without being versions of dude heroes with boobs. It takes a certain strength to put your foot down and say that’s how it’s going to be, but you can’t make true change in tiny increments; you explode the system and rebuild with new rules in place. Marvel took it a little too literally by ACTUALLY DESTROYING THE MULTIVERSE, but the playing field seems more even now and every time a new teen heroine gets her own title it feels more organic. I love it.
