faith shabazz

I’ve mentioned it before, but I really really want to write a comic book where Faith Shabazz, the wife of Isaiah Bradley, the first Captain America, Magda Eisenhardt, the mother of Wanda Maximoff, Pietro Maximoff, Anya Eisenhardt and wife of Magneto, and Peggy Carter all get together in an all-women, non-powered superheroine team.

Benefits of such a team: 

  • Magda would have a story other than one for Erik’s man-pain.
  • Both Magda and Faith are ladies of color. Magda is Romani and Faith is black. 
  • Both Magda and Faith wear religious or cultural headcoverings and modest dress for religious or cultural reasons.
  • Both Magda and Faith have grandbabies on the young avengers. It’d be cool to see how they interact compared to their grandkiddos.
