Muslim super heroes

John Burgess at Crossroads Arabia reports on a Muslim comic book series that has super heroes that impersonate the 99 attributes of God in Islam and has now received crucial financial backing necessary to launch an animated TV series.
It's interesting to note that one of the motivations for Al-Mutawa to create this series was his observation that Hamas was selling stickers of suicide bombers to children. He believed a strong alternative was necessary.

Without knowing much about this comic except what you've posted here, and assuming that there is nothing patently offensive (to either Muslims or Western values) about the comic, I wish Al-Mutawa all the best. There is a need for a positive alternative for Muslim children, and I hope his cartoon fills that void.

I don't know much more myself, but it sounds promising. Got to be better than idolizing suicide bombers, I figure.
