Actress Emilia Clarke reveals she’s been engaged on a superhero comedian she calls female and fabulous
The Mother of Dragons is now the Mother of Madness. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has revealed she’s spent the previous two years engaged on a comic book e-book sequence known as M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, and it’s on the point of drop this summer season. Clarke gave followers a glimpse on the cowl on Instagram and shared some particulars on the story, which sound in contrast to nearly something we’ve ever seen earlier than within the superhero style.
For starters, Clarke’s foremost character Maya is a single mom. “We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes?” Clarke stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Maya has had a very hard life, and she finds herself in a place where everything that makes her unique, she hates and is ashamed about. It’s only in the discovery of her powers that she finds her true acceptance of who she is.”
And talking of these superpowers—they derive from an unlikely supply. “She can do a lot of stuff at certain moments in her month,” Clarke stated. “She can do all of these wicked things, but they all come from the fact that she is a woman who has a menstrual cycle. I thought it would be cool to have all the things that women don’t like about themselves, flip that, and make those the things that make her superhuman.” Why undergo the difficulty of mining vibranium or injecting Super Soldier serum if you’ve already received PMS? Definite factors for creativity there, and 1,000,000 extra factors for serving to to destigmatize intervals.
Clarke stated she was impressed by her personal lifelong love of comics, sharing with EW that she felt like she wasn’t allowed to take pleasure in them as a baby as a result of she was a lady. She stated that feeling endured at the same time as an grownup as she noticed how male-dominated the style continues to be. “Are there any women out there that are superpowered, but aren’t in a skintight costume? Not that I can see.” Clarke stated she requested herself. Answer: no, not many. Apparently the individuals who sometimes write and draw comics assume curves and cleavage are mandatory crime-fighting instruments.
Mother of Madness is deliberate as a three-issue sequence proper now. Fans who felt just like the ending of Game of Thrones did Daenerys soiled might get an opportunity to see what a powerful feminine character can do when one other robust feminine creator is looking the photographs. In reality, there’s an entire slate of them—Clarke selected an all-female inventive crew to collaborate together with her on the challenge.
Clarke’s Instagram followers are already clamoring to get their palms on the comedian. “I’m eager to read it as a single mother of [a] boy with severe autism,” one wrote. “I like to believe I have some superpowers too.” The wait is just some months longer: the primary difficulty is about to hit shops on July 21.
