Superhero Comic With Muslim Elements Faces Backlash From Saudi Leaders

Naif al-Mutawa, a Kutwaiti psychologist and creator of the comic, wasnt happy with the ban because it seemed to contradict the message the comics are trying to spread. We put Saudi super heroes on global television, al-Mutawa said to The Daily Beast. We are saying, We are the good guys, not the bad guys, and these people are saying, No, you are wrong, we actually are the bad guys. Stop spreading lies, Naif! Muslim characters seem to be on the rise in comic books.
