World's first Muslim superheroes, the 99, are headed for British television screens



The world's first Muslim cartoon superheroes have taken the Arab world by storm, and now they are headed for British television screens.

Named the 99, as each possesses one of Allah's 99 attributes, the characters include a burka-clad woman named Batina the Hidden and a Saudi Arabian Hulk-type man named Jabbar the Powerful.

They have proved a hit from Morocco to Indonesia and were recently named as one of the top 20 trends sweeping the world by Forbes magazine.
Now they are being brought to British television by Endemol, the production company behind Big Brother, with a mission to instill Islamic values in children across all faiths.

Until now, the superhero market has been dominated by the likes of Batman, Spiderman and Superman who have typically limited their crime-fighting abilities to America and the Western world.

They were created by Dr Naif al-Mutawa, a clinical psychologist from Kuwait, who felt Muslim children needed a new set of heroes to look up to, to counter jihadist role models.

“It hit me that the stories I was hearing were from men who grew up believing that their leader, Saddam, was a hero, a role model — only to one day be tortured by him,” he told The Times. “I decided the Arab world needed better role models.”

However, despite being called the 99, there will never be a full cast of 99 superheroes since it is forbidden to depict all Allah's attributes
Dr al-Mutawa hopes the cartoons will have a universal appeal.

He said: “It is based on attributes such as generosity and mercy. These are not things that Islam has a monopoly over.”

Re: World's first Muslim superheroes, the 99, are headed for British television scree

I saw one episode. Jabbar pushes a goat down to the ground. He then ties the legs of the goat in a second and then flips out a sharp knife. He then signgs the holey verse in the goats ear. Then he slowly cuts the goats throat and watches with glee as the blood spurts out. He then makes a facial expression which has elements of sacrifice and happiness.

He's then shown skinning the goat and cutting the carcass into small pieces. Then he's shown to be generous while distributing the slaughtered goats flesh to the poor and hungry.

Surely you are telling lies. I watched the same show. Here is what really happened ... you are mixing truth with fibs.

He then makes a facial expression which has elements of excitement and happiness.

He's then shown entering the goat. Then he's shown to be generous while inviting rest of 98 who are also hungry for some loving-loving.

Re: World's first Muslim superheroes, the 99, are headed for British television scree

There is this punch line which SuperMan identifies with..

Is it a plane? Is it a bird? No! it's SuperMan.

Jabbar identifies like this..

Is it a man? Is it a human? No! it's MusalMan!
