Who would you cast Mindy Kaling as (pref. in the Marvel Universe?)
Sersi of the Eternals
“Sersi, a practically immortal member of the Earth-born race call the Eternals, has lived amongst and interacted with humans more than almost any other member of her race. Several thousands of years ago Sersi inspired the legend of "Circe: in Homer’s epic "The Odyssey,” and also met, mixed with and influenced several other historical characters, such as Merlin and King Arthur Pendragon, throughout the course of human history.
Sersi is the only fifth level adept, the highest possible, among the Eternals in the discipline of matter rearrangement. Amongst the Eternals it’s said that even Prime-Eternal Zuras, mightiest of all Eternals, fears the power of Sersi.“
This is way funnier if, like me, you are right now reading early 90s Avengers comics in which Sersi is a) going mad, b) soulbonded to the Avengers hunk of the moment, and c) THE BIGGEST DRAMA QUEEN ON EARTH.

I always hate it when the artist makes the wearer’s bellybutton visible through her clothes, but the art here is lovely enough for me to ignore it.
