For whatever reason, this message is appearing on mobile Tumblr but not in my askbox while on my computer. Anyways Kamala used a burkini along with Bruno’s super stretchy super snot. I’d say the scarf used with it is closest to a dupatta. Dupattas tend to be longer than regular scarves and can vary in material depending on what it’s worn with.
Hope that helps!

I loved this whole interaction. In so many stories, especially stories about teens with powers, wacky hijinks are forced to ensue with the teens not telling the adults the truth of what’s going on, and the adults getting in the way and not understanding.
And I get that, I mean Adults Do Not Get What Kids Today Go Through is not so much symbolism as it is text. However it’s also been done a billion times. With good reason, yes, but done.
There is also the flip side - the adult who is the Wise Mentor who is already in the know, and can dispense sage advice until such time as the plot requires them to die. Again, not bad in and of itself, but done.
Throw in the aspect of the adult being a religious figure and the odds of them being either Wise Elder or Plot Required Obstacle are even higher. And even more done.
But instead, what was done with Kamala and Sheikh Abdullah was show that there can be another way. Kamala doesn’t give away her secret identity, but she tries telling as much of the truth as she can. It’s not an either/or of lies vs full confession.
In turn, Sheikh Abdullah shows respect for what Kamala tells him and replies to her in kind. He can’t give full advice without knowing the entire situation, but he gives what advice he can given the information he has. He trusts that she’s telling the truth about helping people, and gives her guidance to help her find her way as she figures things out for herself.
It’s a wonderful bit of personal, human interaction and it’s not an emotional beat you often get in stories like these.
In a way it reminds me of one of the (many) things I liked about Captain Marvel’s first run, in that it showed friendships between generations.
quick kamala doodle because this comic is perfect UuU
