In "THE 99," Naif Al-Mutawa's new generation of comic book heroes fight more than crime -- they smash stereotypes and battle extremism. Named after the 99 attributes of Allah, his characters reinforce positive messages of Islam and cross cultures to create a new moral framework for confronting evil, even teaming up with the Justice League of America.

I wasn't into comic books as a youngster, I don't know why not. No idea at all. Just wasn't. I used to be into taking things apart to see how they worked.

It's an interesting idea, I hope it does bring our cultures closer, but my fear is the religious base. I don't think our morals should come solely from religion.

It will be interesting to see how long an Islamic cartoon can continue to exist without depicting Allah.
