Right after 9/11, which of the following would be more likely: that Batman takes on al Qaeda or, rather, that he recruits a Muslim to be one of his “Global Batmen”? Of course the former, but not in a world where “Islam means peace.” Frank Miller worked on a graphic novel called “Holy Terror, Batman” as his response to 9/11, pitting Batman against al Qaeda. But for reasons that are still unclear, “The Fixer” has now taken the place of Batman in Miller’s project, while DC Comics has Batman recruiting a Muslim to be his French counterpart.
What have Muslims done to earn this honor? The same thing Islam has done to deserve being equated with peace in Western culture.
I personally don’t think Batman is built to take on butchers like al Qaeda, since DC Comics thinks having Batman kill would kill the character. (Heroes don’t kill? What of our heroic soldiers?) But I sure as hell don’t think Batman should be used to sell the Big Lie that “Islam means peace.” And, believe it or not, this is the second time in two months that Batman has been used in Islamic propaganda, the first being in the unreadable JLA/the 99 #1. At this rate, Superman converting to Islam is inevitable.
If you’re as sick and tired of this IslamiCrap as I am, be on the lookout for my upcoming graphic novel, THE INFIDEL, which features Pigman, an ex-Muslim superhero who is the jihadist’s worst nightmare. Chapter one will be released digitally in early 2011.
