Time Magazine Examines Islamic Superheroes "The 99"

by on August 7, 2008

Time magazine has taken a look at the Islamic superhero team comic book The 99, which takes Islamic mythology to create 99 heroes, each of whom personifies one of the 99 traits that the Koran attributes to Allah. The comic is the brainchild of Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, and the title has been successful enough in the Middle East, and a new wave of expansion will include a theme park in Kuwait scheduled to open in October and an animated TV show that Mutawa hopes to have on the air by late 2010.
