Bravest Moment in Literature: Ms. Marvel

What's the bravest thing you've ever read?

Honestly it was really difficult to pick just one moment @LizArnone so I hope you'll forgive me for responding so late! You picked one of my favorite moments, when Hermione Granger obliviates her parents to protect them. There were a few in the Kushiel series I considered, but I didn't think anyone here knew the books that well. Finally I decided I'd write about a moment in comics (predictable, of course).

"Brave is not a thing you are. It's a thing you do."

This moment has stood out to me since I read it, and I've shared it before. Kamala Khan is deciding to be something more: To be a hero. She's kind of an awkward lonely kid. She spends her Friday nights writing fanfiction, and she wishes that she looked more like Carol Danvers. She's a lot like other teenage girls, but she make the choice to become something more. Despite being afraid, despite the risk, despite her insecurities. She decides to stand up and protect people. Kamala Khan is the definition of brave.

Bravery is when you face your fears, not an absence of them.

I really enjoyed sharing this!

And I'm loving the responses everyone has as well. Thank you @LizArnone for this challenge. @amobigbang @DanRodriguez @AimeeH @BeannachtOraibh @Bakuman247 @ChiefAlphaGoat @loftonc16 @Marichel @Jelloston @MoisEsGaray @SamTheMallow @MichaelOgg I'd love to see your response to this! What's the bravest moment you've ever read?

@charlesnash I definitely feel the sentiment behind the one like! Kamala is honestly so inspiring to me. She's the embodiment of everything I think of when I think of heroism
