Ms. Marvel Goes Door-To-Door to Get Out The Vote
With the American elections coming up in just a few days, Marvel is adding a new voice to the call to vote.
A teaser from the upcoming Ms. Marvel #13 features Ms. Marvel (AKA Kamala Khan) going door to door to drag her neighbors in Jersey City to the polls. You can read the whole teaser down below the break.
Interestingly, this story doesn’t push one candidate over another. It focuses instead on urging every eligible American to vote regardless of whether they’re excited about the candidates on offer, because making tough choices is part of living responsibly in a democratic society. As Kamala tells a grumpy neighbor, “You’re gonna have to compromise something. The question is what.”
Here’s the full release from Marvel:
New York, NY—November 4, 2016— It’s election season in the United States and Marvel wants to remind everyone that they have one of the greatest powers there is – the ability to vote! And who better to champion this ability than Marvel’s breakout Super Hero, Ms. Marvel.
Today, Marvel Comics is proud to debut an exclusive first look to MS. MARVEL #13, spotlighting Ms. Marvel’s quest to encourage everyone to vote this Election Day. Written by G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel, A-Force) accompanied with artwork by Mirka Andolfo, MS. MARVEL #13 finds Kamala Khan at the start of a new chapter in her life and as she begins this journey of discovery, Ms. Marvel takes to the streets of her home town, Jersey City, to encourage all its residents to summon their own super power – the right to vote!
Can Ms. Marvel inspire and encourage her neighbors to select their candidate, or will this be more challenging than taking down Ultron? Find out this November in MS. MARVEL #13 and check out Marvel’s exclusive preview to witness Kamala Khan’s march to encourage everyone to get out and vote.
Give the teaser a read. It has real-world directions on how to check whether you’re registered, find a polling station, and handle common roadblocks to voting. When you’re done, follow Ms. Marvel’s lead and make your voice heard- vote!
