By the more loose clothing of female heroes? I mean, wonder womans costume is basically a shirt and underwear, and her hair obviously uncovered. You also have some rather.......harsh sexuality, looseness and other.........life choices shall we say that do not fit in with Judeo-Christian beliefs, let alone more conservative Islamic views. I know not every Muslim is the same, but I was just interested in finding out their opinions.

I hate Muslims. They should be a villian in a comic.

@jointron33: One of my best friends is a Muslim from Pakistan (which is fairly conservative) and she loves Wonder Woman amongst others. Her brother's one of the biggest geeks I've met. And they both love Vertigo. It's their favorite company/imprint and we all know the type of stuff Vertigo puts out. Granted, their family is very open-minded and they live in Ireland but if I remember correctly, she once told me that Dubai has a growing market for comics. I hope this post counts for something

Also, ever heard of the comic called "The 99"? I think it's a testament to comics being for everyone no matter what religion you are

@manofiron11: I'm really hoping you're just trolling

I'm a conservative catholic, Muslims aren't writing these comics, and if you're offended don't pick the comic up.

Honestly, Muslims just try to brainwash people and don't have a clue. Just ignorant and violent. I understand there are Muslims who believe in peace but the vast majority are just scum, cockroaches if you will. They're bad for this world.

What evidence do you have of this?

I don't understand why people think trolling is cool. It must make them feel good about themselves.

@knightrise: They have no interesting traits, so they try their hardest to get other people riled up so they can laugh it up with other uninteresting people who troll around. They go from uninteresting people to annoying people in just a few keystrokes. Probably to fill the void of being generally ignored by people.

You should stay clear of this thread http://www.comicvine.com/forums/off-topic-5/religion-what-do-you-think-12335/ it's full of extremely offensive anti religious videos and statements that hasn't been locked because comivine gives a free pass of christian bashing and harrassment

I like to bash the really over zealous atheists, they get way more mad and entertaining than the religious folks.

Some are some aren't. Probably the most conservative muslim are. It comes down to how or what you put into the term conservative muslims.

@jointron33:

Also, ever heard of the comic called "The 99"? I think it's a testament to comics being for everyone no matter what religion you are

First of all the 99 comic has met problems for it. For instance some feel they are drawing Muhammed because they are drawing people with the same names/benefits as him. The concept of the comic is that Muhammed has 99 names and now there are coming 99 heroes with the name however the powers is not directly connect to Muhammed himself.As far as I know there aren't any nudity or anything like that in the comic. You can easily be offended be a topic in a comic and be fine with another. Being offended by american comics doesn't mean you are against comics.

The 99 is about regular people getting super powers like the attributes/names giving to Muhammed. Muhammed has 99 attributes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_and_Titles_of_Muhammad Some conservative muslims feels therefore they are drawing Muhammed which is against the practice of islam. Maybe you remember the trouble Denmark was in because different artist had drawn Muhammed. So The 99 has met problem by conservative muslim in general though it is a big success.

Also you can like some comic and dislike other by it context. So just because some muslims like The 99 doesn't mean the american comics aren't haraam (sinful). Most conservative muslim would probably see it a such. The question is whatever they would thing it it should be illegal. Drawing or seeing female like they are dressed in superhero comics would therefore for some muslim be wrong to watch/read. Those who think that american mainstream comics is haraam can easily think that The 99 is fine. Therefor just because some muslim like The 99 doesn't mean the support mainstream american comics. However there has been a crossover between JLA and The 99 so there most at least from the creators side by a level of acceptance.

My point is that some muslims see both comics as haraam (but for different reasons). Some only sees American mainstream as haraam and some sees neither of the comics as haraam. It is an individual question and you can't make the assumption that just because there is an Arab mainstream superhero comics means that they support an American mainstream superhero comic.

@tupiaz: Oh. I knew that. I just meant that it's cool that it was created by a Muslim and is acceptable to a number of them. Obviously what is defined as sinful text is determined by the opinions of individuals. But thanks for clarifying yourself anyway

@akindoodle: No problem. It kinds of annoys me that The 99 hasn't been released as a trade in English yet.

Muslims are offended by any woman showing her visage. I'll say it. F*ck them in most cases. If you just believe in the morals of the philosophy in the faith, good for you. If you follow the practices you suck.

@amutant: I loved how you've tried to turn a thread which has negative comments about muslims into a pity party for the so called "oppressed christians" in another thread.

Could work on the subtlety but nice work.....
