Have You Met Dust?

Dust from Marvel Comics

Dust (real name Sooraya Qadir) is an adolescent Sunni Muslim girl who possesses the mutant power to turn herself into a sand-like substance. Born in Afghanistan, Sooraya is kidnapped by a slave-trading ring after she is separated from her mother. While one of her slavers tries to remove her niqāb, she instinctively lashes out with her powers and flays them all alive with her dust form before passing out. She is subsequently discovered and rescued by Wolverine and Fantomex.

Yep, you read that right: she’s a Marvel character! You can read more about her here. This news is courtesy of my Marvel-fanatic friend :]

  1. Now would you look at how she’s portrayed. *rolls eyes* Because you know, that’s exactly the way every single Muslim woman out there looks like *rolls eyes again*

  2. /put on geek hat on

    yes but right now she is a minor char in X-men comics ( she actually show in one )

    they do show her face more than once , she tried to play that she is Muslim once when the mutant kids were attacked by Stryker’s Purifiers

  3. Hopefully, they didn’t rescue her from a “beit sha3ar” in some desert, that has no traces of civilization.
    Just like the other 38570894803 movies that has been previously made, that portraid us arabs as some under-civilized retards.

    just like the movie “transformers”.. man that ticked me off!

  4. Sou, she’s Saudi; this is what is expected of women to wear there. Besides, it wouldn’t look as cool if she had regular casual clothes on, right? :P

  5. I must say, even though she’s a stereotype, it’s awesome. I’m surprised they didn’t give her bush eyebrows though.

    “Citizenship
    Afghanistan, legal immigrant to the U.S.A

    Known Relatives
    Mirah Qadir (mother), unidentified father”

    Bint el7raam!!! At least she’s legal..?

  6. Machaholi yeah, here’s a scene from the movie:

    Sooraya: “Brovessor Y I mean X, giv me baber I want write you something”.

    Professor X: “You don’t need to write child, speak and all of Xaviar will hear you”.

    Sooraya: “I throw dust your face, little moral you – ALLAHU AKBAAAR!!”

    (side note: And thereupon the dark sooraya swiftly jumps in midair, unleashing her long Arabian sword which was stolen from the legendary Alladin and thusted it into professor X’s heart causing him sudden and instant death. And there you have it dear leaders, it is the invincible Sooraya and not Bishop that actually murdered professor X”.

  7. Scene Two:

    Sooraya & Cyclops stand face to face…

    Cyclops: “You can never compete with my powers you little *beeep* ”

    (Cyclops flashes his laser eyes towards Sooraya but Sooraya quickly dodges)

    Sooraya: “My turn now….”

    (Sooraya elegantly picks up the tip of her burkka and goes …

    Sooraya: Tfo tfo tfo (3 spits)

    (Cyclops falls on the ground and dies)

    MMMUUAHAHAHAHHHAHAH *I’m under caffein influence*
