I'm with Chris Rock

"I pray that this event ends global warming, er... the Israeli-Palestine conflict... the same way that Live Aid ended world hunger." -- of course, comic booksWell, of course, it's so obvious... why didn't anyone think of this one before... the healing power of comic books...

"The superhero's appearance hasn't been finalized, but he definitely will be a Muslim boy in a wheelchair. An early sketch shows a boy who lost his legs in a landmine accident and later becomes the Silver Scorpion after discovering he has the power to control metal with his mind."
Holy Hamas... if this guy can control metal... maybe he help build a few water treatment plants...
The sea around Gaza is heavily polluted with at least 60 million litres of raw and partially treated sewage being pumped into it every day.
Yeah, I know... I guess that's not as exciting as saving the world, huh?
The Open Hands Initiative was launched last November to respond to Obama's offer to the Muslim world in his inaugural address to “extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”
Geez... I dunno, Barry.

Just spitballin' here... but I'm thinkin', it actually might be more important to... "unclench your mind".

UPDATE: In other "comic book" news...
"An event occurred, and under the pretext of that event, two countries were invaded and up to now, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed as a result."
Oh... my... gawd... where was Ironman on September 11, 2001?

This comic will no doubt turn out to be deemed blasphemous by the many jihadist groups throughout the world and stir up even more victim hood angst.
