Marvellous Women of Color // Dr Faiza Hussain (Excalibur)
I did that?! I’ve got the power to do that?! That.. machine–! Did that to me?! So I’ve got superpowers now?! Only it’s not very okay, no, being grateful. Powers: good. But what am I, take bodies-apart-woman? ‘cos I was that already. Oh, d'you think that’s why-? I’m babbling aren’t I?
Not gonna lie, I really want Faiza Hussain from Mi13 and Kamala Khan (Ms Marvel) to meet up at some point. If only to geek out over the fact that they’re both fans of superheroes who ended up joining the community they admired for so long.
…Though that would require someone other than Paul Cornell (Faiza’s creator) remembering that she exists. At least, other than that Gambit writer, who had the titular hero kick Faiza in the stomach so he could steal Excalibur (who judged her worthy to wield it, by the by) for some rich racist.
RUMOR: MARVEL DEVELOPING ‘CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13′ TV SHOW! CLOSE TO AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!
Marvel are reportedly close to making an announcement that they are to release a TV show based on Captain Britain and the MI13. Captain Britain is an Avenger with the powers of super-strength and flight. He also works for MI13, a British secret service organisation and has strong connections to magic and Doctor Strange. This show will basically be Superman meets James Bond meets Harry Potter and I’ll be damned if that doesn’t sound awesome.
