From D.C. to P.C. to I.C.

From D.C. Comics to Politically Correct Comics to Islamically Correct Comics

I did these essays/cartoons for a little while back about the Islamization of American comics, particularly on how D.C. Comics has gone all in with the "Islam means peace" myth. And it was the first entry below which led to my appearance on The Daily Show.
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, you'll like my graphic novel, THE INFIDEL, which features Pigman, an ex-Muslim superhero who is the jihadist’s worst nightmare. Chapter one is now available.


DC comics has pimped out Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman to a Muslim comic book publisher in order to sell Islam as something universally good. DC’s icons will team up with “The 99”, described as “the world’s first superheroes based on Islamic culture and society,” in a comic book designed to perpetuate the “Islam means peace” fantasy. Whatever else this thing is, it’s Islamic propaganda, and it’s being released during a war being waged against us by Islam’s most consistent practitioners. It’s one thing for DC Comics to avoid the reality of jihad in their comic book universe, quite another to allow the big three superhero icons to be used to sell today’s Big Lie. I know comic books are meant to be fantasy, but having 99 super-powered Muslims who are not engaged in jihad is simply un-Islamic.
Regardless of the seemingly mild nature of the man behind this, Dr. Naif al-Mutawa, it’s a false version of Islam he’s selling here, since the only way you can mainstream Islam is by lying about it. This shows how trapped even the most Western Muslims are by their own religion, that they have to go outside of their religion for them to make Islam seem at all appealing to non-Muslims — and even to themselves. It doesn’t matter if it’s self-delusion or dissimulation driving those behind this IslamiComic, the result is the same: Islam is again presented as something it’s not in order to appeal to the ignorant, in this case, targeting young kids, making this comic particularly insidious.
American Superheroes fought America’s enemies in World War 2. Today, not only do they stay clear from the jihadists, but now the most popular of them also team up with sugar-coated Muslim superheroes for the express purpose of making Islam look good.


Super-powered Muslims wouldn’t stone Wonder Woman.
They’d boulder her.
This is the second of my three-part cartoon response to DC Comics allowing Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman to be used by a Muslim comic book publisher in order to sell Islam as something it’s not. 
Today is Wonder Woman Day, a yearly event that celebrates the character, as well as promoting a charity that benefits domestic violence programs. I would imagine that there is at least one individual at DC Comics who knows that he’s helping promote one of the most misogynistic ideologies in history. An ideology which sees women as a necessary evil, since they’re the only ones who can give birth to baby boys. An ideology that causes even the least devout Muslims to mourn the birth of a baby girl.  Some of you may know that Wonder Woman recently had a costume change; her new costume just happens to be more Islamically correct than that in which we’re used to seeing her. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if her costume was tweaked in order to avoid The 99 from being scandalized in the Muslim world by their appearing with Wonder Woman in her usual costume, especially since some of the 99 female members are dressed in full-on burkas.
Until The 99 are unleashed against jihad, there’s no reason to believe that this comic is anything other than Islamic propaganda, and DC Comics is in on it.


When is the left pleased with a character who’s known for fighting for “Truth, Justice & The American Way”? When that character has forsaken that fight.
There is now a trend of American comic book icons being de-Americanized in order to make them more palatable to a foreign — even anti-American — audience. In some foreign markets, Marvel studios is leaving the name “Captain America” off of the title of the upcoming film starring the patriotic superhero, and even the director of the film has made comments designed to placate non-American audiences.
The left was also pleased when Batman recruited a Muslim as his French counterpart, in a storyline that ignores the very reason we even began talking about Islam on a large scale, 9/11.
Superman was created and published by Americans. He's an alien who crash-landed in America, he was raised by Americans, lives in America, works in America, and is married to an American. But D.C. Comics has just made him renounce his U.S. Citizenship. I keep reading about how Superman belongs to all of us. Well, my Superman would Never quit America. He might be critical of a particular policy of the American government, but he would never stop fighting for Truth, Justice & The American Way.

I wrote the below on a comic book forum regarding how a recent story in a Superman comic book was replaced by another. The Original story was about yet another Muslim superhero who this time has to fight against "Islamophobic" Americans in order to..."help" them, all with the help of Superman, of course. And even though D.C. has bent over further than Any other comic book company when it comes to -portraying Islam in a positive light -lying about Islam- charges of "islamaphobia" on D.C.'s part were still made. Here's my comment:

D.C. Comics has basically become IslamiComics in the past year, with JLA/The 99, Nightrunner, the Muslim character in Power Girl, this Sharif superhero.....and yet the One time that an Islam-centric comic book is cancelled by them is cause for suspecting Islamophobia on D.C.s part? Islamophobia is not D.C.'s problem, it's its Islamophilia. The Muslim terrorist is definitely a cliche.... but only in real life, not in pop culture entertainment. If D.C. Comics would actually acknowledge the reality that we are being warred upon by Muslim terrorists, and create a Muslim superVillain to echo that within its pages, then we'll have some True controversy, because it would reflect reality, not counter it. And when you write about the Muslim superhero within Superman's pages, that the public within the comic might not want his help - why *exactly* do you think that is? We all know, and it has Nothing to do with IslamophoNia.

Bosch, you're a cartoonist so you can weigh in on this question:
When do you think Garry Trudeau will finally assign a Doonesbury Presidential Icon to Pres Obama?
I mean, it's only fair - the three Presidents before him all have their own special icons.
Maybe hard economic times have hit Doonesbury. Perhaps there just isn't a budget for this over there. Tragic.

My icon vote?: A teleprompter of course!
