Conan O’Brien’s ‘Muslim female superhero’ joke doesn’t fly with fans

It’s true that Marvel Comics is introducing a Muslim-American superhero, a rather typical New Jersey teen who takes on the role of Ms. Marvel. Marvel had higher hopes for the character, though, than what emerged from Conan O’Brien’s tweet tonight, which didn’t fly well with many fans.

For what it’s worth, here’s the new Ms. Marvel, who’s a 16-year-old high school student.
