M.O.M.: Mother of Madness #2: "Are there any women out there that are superpowered, but aren't in a skintight costume? Not that I can see."



Instagram: @mayamotherofmadness

Quote:
"It started almost as a joke, Emilia Clarke recalls: "About three years ago, I was in a car with a bunch of friends and was like, 'Hey, guys, wouldn't it be really funny if…' And then I woke up the next day and was like, 'That would be funny. That would be f---ing cool. Why not?'"

And thus M.O.M.: Mother of Madness was born. The three-issue Image Comics miniseries, written by Clarke (along with writer Marguerite Bennett, who she calls her "comic guru"), follows a single mom named Maya who discovers she possesses freakish superpowers, and uses them to take on a secret cabal of human traffickers.

Clarke describes the comic as a Deadpool-esque blend of "a lot of silliness" and tongue-in-cheek humor, combined with a very current feminist sensibility "explored in an extreme genre-bending atmosphere."

"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 EW. "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."

title suggestions:

"The biggest reason why I wanted to make this comic is because I wanted young girls to look at a woman that was fallible."
"What if mothers legitimately were superheroes?"
Because Maya's mask is similar to the signature balaclavas of Pussy Riot
"no Lycra bodysuits for my girl"
"Right from the start my readers know they were in for a different kinda comic book ride"
" if it failed spectacularly, then I’d be on my deathbed being like'‘I made a comic. That's really cool.'"
"Let's give this character an opportunity to have something that actually makes you feel like yourself."
"To have something that is yes, solely mine feels just incredible. If it's not successful, that's okay."
"So like someone who I don't know...if they say that they like it, then that's amazing. That would be a lot of success."
"First and foremost I wanted every version of this to come from an all female crew and that's what we did."
"16% of comic book creators are female, only 30% of comic book characters are women. Something did not sit right with me"
