Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has announced her debut comic book, M.O.M.: Mother of Madness.
The comic book heroine Maya’s appeal and relatability lies in the fact that it’s the decidedly ordinary that makes her extraordinary: a busy single mother, whose life is changed as she gains superpowers through her menstrual cycle.
Maya’s cycle has been weaved into the storyline, Clarke explained: “The bloating, the hair growth, the mood swings, the [acne], all of it. We hate that when it happens, speaking for myself and everyone I’ve ever met who has had a period.
“What if we turned that around and made the period something that we can feel as this unique, crazy, superhuman thing that happens in our body? When Maya is scared, she goes invisible, when she’s angry, she has superhuman strength. She can swing like Spider-Man from her armpit hair.”
Clarke praises mothers.
“She’s a single mum that’s got to get s**t done,” Clarke told Variety. “This was born from the idea that single mothers are superheroes. You need superhuman strength to do that.
“When you get into your 30s and your friends start having kids, you’re like, ‘Oh my god. I was not aware of what it took. Holy s**t.'”
Clarke’s fame centers around her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness is set to be released on July 21.
In the category of GARBAGE, this will be at the top of the heap.
First off, Emilia sounds like a fraud in the interview, claiming she didn’t feel welcome at comic book stores, “No girls allowed,” which does NOT pass the BULL—- test. Girls and ladies have always been welcomed, it’s just a more recent trend to see more female readers.
After a #METOO reference, Clarke confirms “MOM” will be ULTRA-WOKE: “She recruited an all-female creative team and made a comic featuring what is undoubtably one of the most progressive female heroes in the genre.”
Because…that’s working out well in the industry.
The seems like a pet project from a wealthy person bored during the pandemic, surrounded by friends and paid staff unwilling to tell Clarke her ideas are moronic or off-putting: “all of her powers manifest from her menstrual cycle,” “She can swing like Spider-Man from her armpit hair,” and “single mothers are superheroes.”
