Promo Image: New Muslim Superhero Comic Book Planned

Promo Image: New Muslim Superhero Comic Book PlannedSubmit Comment
A non-profit organization called Open Hands Initiative got together with a group of disabled young American and Syrians in Damascus last month to come up with a new superhero who will get his own comic book.

The group came up with "Silver Scorpion," a wheelchair-bound Muslim boy who lost his legs in a landmine accident but has the power to control metal with his mind. We now have an initial sketch of the superhero, who is apparently a mix of Professor X and Magneto. Check it out below.

The comic book is expected to be released in November in Arabic and English by Liquid Comics. Initially 50,000 Arabic-language comics will be distributed throughout Syria, followed by issues in the Middle East.

I dont undersand why he has a wheelchair if he can control metal? Why wouldn't he just have like two metal peg legs and walk around with them? Surely he wouldn't lose balance if he could control his legs with his mind?

Wouldn't he be able to sense the land mine before he stepped on it? Being made of metal and all.. How does he pray in his wheel chair? Will Allah strike him down for not being on his knees? Will these questions be answered?

Wonderful

Just another anti-American anti-Israeli propaganda tool to grow another set of future fighters against us

Since the new Captain America cannot be pro-Amerian

Does this mean this comic book character cannot be pro-muslim

Muslin superhero, huh?

What's his special power? Blowing up his own legs? Sounds like a winner!

Peter Parker writes:

Captain America, run while you can!

Or walk. You can just walk. Super-Blow-Up-In-His-Face is in a wheelchair, so take your time.

Or you can just climb a few stairs, he'll never follow you there.

I love the silver outfit. It looks a bit Xanadu.

Also: did he fuse with his wheel chair when he became a hero? Half-man, half-wheelchair.

Since his only weakness is pork, I suppose his arch enemy would be Pigman.

I thought he was going to have the power to explode and regenerate himself.

"has the power to control metal with his mind."

So that's how WTC7 collapsed!

At the end of each comic we'll get a lesson kinda of like at the end of the gi Joe cartoons. Basically it will be about how to terrorize America. AND NOW WE KNOW! AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE! LALALALALALALALALALALALA!

If you send in enough coupons, they include an airplane you can fit him in that explodes when you throw it against the side of the garage ....

and don't forget the timebomb, envelope of anthrax, picture of Geo. W Bush with a bullet hole in the forehead and box cutter accessories in the plastic of the container.

They meant to start selling them on September 11th ... but then that would've been too sensitive.

But only barely.

Are these comics bullet-proof?

Hey buddy... stand over there with your comic over your chest... I want to try something...

As some have noticed/posted/commented... if this douche bag can control metal. Why the f*ck wouldn't he construct a metal exo-skeleton and move around that way?

Will they be taking flight lessons on Florida, but the instructor as well not think it unusual their request that they only learn to take-off and fly, and landing lessons aren't required? Speaking of that... hey, if that f*ck-head instructor I speak of is reading this... Jesus buddy, my sh*t has more brains than you do!!!

@ Ari Gold

I'm actually friends with the kid who came up with the idea (oddly) and he said they're actually going to explain why he doesn't use metal legs in one of the issues.
johnny_boy writes:
on September 29th, 2010 at 5:04:58 AM

^should also ask your friend why he can't come up with his own ideas instead of combining two well known characters together
