Letitia Wright’s Shuri is getting a ton of attention for her role in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. She is a fantastic mix of T’Challa’s little sister, as well as one of the smartest people in the MCU.
With that said there is another young African-American girl who is said to be one of the top minds in the Marvel universe Lunella Lafayette. If your a comic book reader the name will definitely ring a bell as she is the protagonist of Marvel Comics’ Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur comic book series.

Now according to Deadline, Lunella is looking to join Marvel’s animated television universe based on the popular comic book series. It is being developed for Disney Channels Worldwide by Black-ish and Grown-ish executive producers Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland via Cinema Gypsy Productions and Marvel Animation.
