Marvel Hero Project: “Genesis The Amazing Animal Ally” Review
A young girl who loves animals is the latest child to be featured as part of the “Marvel Hero Project.” In this episode, we meet Genesis, a fierce champion for protecting animals.
Genesis is a young girl who travels the country fighting to protect animals and meeting with US leaders to gather support for her cause. She speaks at protest rallies and advocates a lifestyle that includes veganism and animal shelters.
Genesis tells the viewer that from an early age she had a strong connection to animals and wanted to be their voice. She describes how she came to realize the chicken nuggets she ate as a small child were made from chickens and that pushed her toward a vegan lifestyle because she didn’t want to hurt any animals. From there, she started advocating for programs that provide access to plant-based meals in hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons; putting a stop to animal testing; and banning the dissection of animals in classrooms.
She also started Genesis for Animals, a nonprofit organization that raises money to support animal sanctuaries all over the world. Those sanctuaries house rescue animals, but are very costly to run.
This is the episode I’ve related to the least of the episodes I’ve watched so far. I love animals as much as the next guy, but I’m in no rush to adopt a vegan lifestyle after watching this episode. My wife and I are trying to eat more plant based like Genesis advocates, but we’ve adopted a pescatarian diet because of the nutrients in fish and how it will help us on our health journey. My wife attempted a vegan diet previously and it was difficult to get on board. I, by no means, judge Genesis’s, or anyone else’s, decision to go vegan as it’s their life. But, it was incredibly difficult to relate after already trying and failing at the vegan diet.
However, one aspect of Genesis’s work, I believe, we can all support is her push to help fund animal sanctuaries. There are a lot of animals that need our help, and I think it’s wonderful that she is stepping up in such a positive manner. I think this is the most valuable lesson of this episode. No matter what disagreements we may have on diets, we as a society can work together to form a symbiotic relationship with the animals around us.
Once again, another deserving child is recognized for her hard work. And, we, as viewers, learn more about how we can help those around us.

So, what did you think of this latest episode of “Marvel Hero Project?”
Veganism is not a diet. There is no health condition that requires one to eat fish. If you want long chain omega-3s, you can obtain them from the source (algae). There is no need for humans to enslave and slaughter other animals for things that are unnecessary for our health. Animals shouldn't be exploited for their flesh, skin and secretions. They also should be exploited for our entertainment or for testing. No on should have to die, just because they weren't born human.
What a shame that the reviewer uses this forum to discourage people from being vegan. They say they support animal sanctuaries but yet keep eating the very flesh and by products that farmed animals produce! I guess I'm just confused about why you would let a reviewer speak against the very thing that this program is encouraging people to try. Not sure why the reviewer and his wife had such a hard time with veganism...unless of course they really have no ethical commitment to animals.It's never been easier to do the right thing. www.vegankit.com
What nutrients do you need from fish that you can't get elsewhere? It's incredibly difficult to relate to a child fighting for justice because you failed at something? Hmmm.
I believe the author is not judging anyone in any way. He was just stating his side on the experience and how his family tried veganism but it did not work. Everyone has different diets and shouldn’t be judged for it. He was not being rude in any way, he just spoke on his experience of trying it.
I think it’s great the author has made an attempt at a plant based diet. Not everyone can be vegan or eat plant based all the time. If him or someone in his family can’t be a vegan that’s their business. Really so many people wouldn’t even make the attempt to try. I think any way a person helps animals is wonderful. People need to not give the author such a hard time. Read his other articles he seems like he’s a nice down to earth guy.
