You can say what you like about the burqa – and I do – but it is an over-garment designed to conceal the female body. This depiction of a character who says she wears a burqa to be modest and then apparently wraps it skin-tight is patently ridiculous.
Incidentally, though Sooraya refers to her robe and headscarf/facescarf several times as “burqa”, the artwork doesn’t show her wearing burqa at all. A burqa is, specifically, the long pleated over-garment with the grille over the eyes. Sooraya is wearing niqab. If five minutes of checking Wikipedia confirms that for me, what does it say about the research standards of the creators?
At any rate: self-professed modest Muslim girl! SKIN TIGHT ROBES! Marvel, we have a problem.
