Re: Superman and Batman to join forces with Islamic superheroes
I wonder who twisted what arms to get this done...
This is hardly something new. There have been Islamic/Arab characters in comics before.
This just smacks of PC PR.
There have been Islamic/Arab heroes before (the article implies that the 99 have been around for a while), but I don't think there's ever been a crossover between a huge American company and a Middle Eastern comic company. That in itself is huge.
You say it smacks of PC PR, I think this is the right direction towards multiculturalism. And who better than the All-American Superman to help lead the way? Let's not forget that the US fought Iraq to save Kuwait in 1991.
