Comic books own a massive fandom today, thanks to the various TV and movie adaptations we’ve seen in the past few decades. The superhero genre practically rules the entertainment industry right now, prime examples being MCU and DCEU. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has recently signed up for a role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion series. The actress is keen on exploring more comic book universes. She will now co-write a comic herself.
Clarke will write her first superhero comic book series M.O.M.: Mother of Madness from Image Comics this July. The former Mother of Dragons will now write about a mother who is also a superhero.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness centres around Maya, who is described as an “under-the-weather scientist by day, over-the-top superhero by night, and badass single mom 24/7.” Each issue of the series will be extra-length. The series depicts Maya using her superpowers to take on a secret sect of human traffickers.
“We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes?” the Game of Thrones star tells 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.”
