Watch video: Naif Al-Mutawa: “Crossover Comics: Bridges or Propaganda?”
Exclusive video from TEDGlobal 2011! Following up on his TEDTalk last year, Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, creator of comic The99, talks about what happened after his Islam-inspired superheroes met the Justice League of America in a crossover comic. In the US, a backlash against the animated TV show kept it off the air. Critics accused The99 of radicalizing young children. Naif agrees: The99 will radicalize all children — to teach tolerance.
