WE'RE NOT ENTIRELY SURE WHAT THEIR POWERS ARE, WE JUST KNOW THAT THEY HATE ISRAEL

Hey, kids! Fledgling comic-book publisher AK Comics has unveiled a new line of "Middle East Heroes," role models who defend Origin City from evildoers, infidels, and, we presume, Zionists. Among the heroes is "the Last Pharaoh," who captures criminals red-handed, then puts them to work building his pyramids.

In this profile, series editor Marwan Nashar asks the rhetorical question, "Why can't the Middle East have its own heroes?" But, Marwan, the Middle East has always had its share of superheroes. Like this one. And, this one. Can't imagine how you'd forget to mention them. In fact, maybe there ought to be a special team-up issue between the Seraph and the Last Pharaoh.

UH-OH. SMALL FELLOW HAS BEEN A CARD MEMBER SINCE 2001.
