Stephen Colbert is outraged at Marvel Comics’ reboot of the once all-American Ms. Marvel character as a shape-shifting Muslim teenager.
The Comedy Central host is a big fan of the skinny graphic novels. Why? “They have everything I love: colorful pictures, and a lack of grammar,” he said. ”Hulk Smash?” Colbert offered up Wednesday. “Stephen like.”
But the fanboy can’t get behind this one: “A Muslim cannot be a superhero — for Pete’s sake they’re on the no-fly list,” the comedian deadpanned.
