Will the comics have super heroe basis and will it only ignite more hope of a saviour in that part of the world, the Jews and Christians are waiting for God there an the anti-Christ is supposed to adopt this Saviour image to decieve the people.
Just wondering, it may not mean this its just one angle, but do agree they do need cheering up.

Is that Ironfist in your Avatar? I got my Ironfist comic signed by the actor who wants to play his part, the one from StarWars and Toad from X-men, forgot his name. Thought id mention it anyway. Oh thats it RAY PARK I remember now.
