DC Comics TV show’s new Muslim superhero declares ‘I am ISIS!’

Talk about bad taste and liberal values gone nose blind: DC’s new Muslim superhero manifests her superpower after declaring herself to be “Isis.”

“Upon holding the amulet and speaking “I am Isis“, Adrianna was transformed and instilled with the powers of the goddess.”

The cartoon battleground in the jihad war is intense. People have lost their lives drawing cartoons of Muhammad. This is such a serious offense that when ISIS irregulars came to kill Pamela Geller in Texas, the country turned on Pamela. It was all about shaming Pamela for drawing Muhammad, and saying nothing about the killers. Somehow, popular opinion got confused, and thought Pamela Geller was the villain in the story of her attempted assassination. This level of confusion is to be combined with the absolute certainty that you will not draw Muhammad.

Yes, we know this “Isis” is supposed to be the Egyptian goddess. We can tell the difference, but we are beginning to wonder about people who think it is neat to have a Muslim super-heroine declare herself to be Isis after we have seen numerous attacks on artists, and cartoonists by devout Muslims, including those who have declared allegiance to ISIS.

This is supposedly a response to the election of Donald Trump.

“You might have heard there was this election,” said Marc Guggenheim.

“Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim,” he explained.

Nothing too political, you understand. And, so this is what they came up with.

“the Muslim superhero reacts to the rise of populism in 2017 and challenges the other heroes to change history to avoid the future dystopia she comes from.”

So Trump is bad, and a Muslim declaring herself to be Isis is good. This probably won’t cause as much controversy as they think, because we see so much of this in other areas of life. We had eight years of it from Obama. There is so much pandering to Islam these days that a Muslim declaring herself Isis is too coy. If they really want attention, DC should be bold and create superheroes such as “Young Bin Laden,” “Super Hezbollah,” “Hamasman,” and “the Adventures of ISIS.”

The response from the cartooning community, including Charlie Hebdo, to Islamic intimidation of cartoonists has been less than heroic. This offering from DC comes across as downright dhimmi behavior.

TV SHOW ADDS MUSLIM SUPERHERO IN RESPONSE TO TRUMP’S ELECTION – HER NAME IS INTERESTING

The Blaze, August 3, 2017

The executive producer of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” says that part of the motivation for adding a Muslim superhero to the show was the “political climate” after the 2016 election. He made the comments Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.

“You might have heard there was this election,” said Marc Guggenheim.

“Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim,” he explained.

The new hero will be introduced in the upcoming third season of the show. She is named Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a Muslim computer hacker from the future. Ironically, and rather unfortunately, the superhero is based on a character already introduced in comic books – named “Isis.”

To be clear, the ‘Isis” character is named after the Egyptian goddess of the same name, and not the Muslim extremist terrorist group.

Zaria Adrianna Tomaz will be portrayed by Iranian actress Tala Ashe.

“Representation is a really powerful thing,” said Ashe.

“When I was growing up watching television,” she explained, “I didn’t see anyone who looked like me. When I think of the kid version of myself, I think it broadens your perspective. What I think is so lovely about this show is that the Legends are this tapestry that represent America today.”

In an interview about her character, Ashe says that the Muslim superhero reacts to the rise of populism in 2017 and challenges the other heroes to change history…
