Superheroes inspired by Islam: Naif Al-Mutawa on TED.com

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. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2010, July 2010 in Oxford, UK. Duration: 18:22)
