“Her idea of what a hero should be—and probably no small portion of her bravery—comes from being a fan. She’s already invested in this world. There is no question in her mind that when you see something going wrong, and you have the means to help, you must help. And that comes from having these other characters in her life, if only on her computer screen and the posters on her walls. Kamala is really the next logical step in the Marvel U—she’s a superhero who grew up with superhero culture; she’s an American growing up in a changing America. I think that’s why so many different people love her. I know it’s why I do.” — G. Willow Wilson, on Kamala Khan’s status as a superhero fan-turned-superhero

“You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.” — Maya Angelou (via winterinter)
