Re: Superman and Batman to join forces with Islamic superheroes
I think changing those things changes the character from a solidly "middle American" person to a member of a fringe element of society and that the writing of said character would have to reflect that. Otherwise why bother?
YOu do realise that the character started as a "Super-Roosevelt". A very liberal and radical character (for it's time). He's also a reporter for East Coast newspaper. His "orgins" are hardly "Middle America"
Though He's not the first character to be sanitized after success.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
