‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ producer admits Muslim character ‘Isis’ a response to Trump

Isis – before she was converted to a Muslim character

Unfortunately no one at DC or Marvel has created any real superheroes in response to al Qaeda, ISIS, al Shabaab, Hamas, Hizbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc., etc. Islamophilia meets Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Producers for The CW’s popular series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” had President Trump on their minds when they decided to introduce a Muslim character.

The Television Critics Association press tour held this week in Beverly Hills, California, briefly touched on U.S. politics when “Legends of Tomorrow” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Phil Klemmer discussed the character Isis, who will be played by actress Tala Ashe.

“You might have heard there was this election,” Variety reported Wednesday after the event. “Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim.”

“We’re all looking toward the day when 2017 is in the history book and hopefully isn’t the last day in the history book,” Mr. Klemmer added.

Ms. Ashe’s character has nothing to do with the terrorist group ISIS, or Islamic State. The superhero existed for years as a woman who draws power from an Egyptian amulet, although Mr. Guggenheim said the injection of religion into the television version’s origin was inspired by his sister-in-law.

“She was talking about how difficult it is to be a Muslim-American in the current political climate,” the producer said. “Having a character who’s a computer hacker and is from the future but also happens to be Muslim, it’s a nice, important aspect of her character.”

Tala Ashe is joining the CW show as a series regular, Variety has learned. The actress will take on the role of Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a new member of the team aboard the Waverider.

Ashe is an Iranian-American dual citizen who speaks fluent Farsi.

The character Zari Adrianna Tomaz is a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030 who lives in a world of contradictions — technology has brought about incredible change in her future, but too bad human nature hasn’t kept pace. Fear, prejudice and a lack of care for the planet have forced Zari to become a “grey hat hacktivist.” Described as a computer nerd with a wry, combative attitude, she is a woman living a double life who doesn’t realize that she has secret, latent powers derived from an ancient, mystical source.

In the comics, Adrianna Tomaz was a citizen of the fictional nation of Kahndaq who fights against its corrupt government, specifically against the country’s leader Black Adam. Eventually she becomes the hero named Isis.

In other words, DC converted the character to Islam.

  1. So, Muslim religion is creeping in a TV show, religion intact, yet, will they give equal time to Christian or Jewish characters? Not! Just like ABC cancelled Tim Allens show “Last Standing Man” because he was outspoken about being Christian, Republican and making fun of Liberals!

    • To be fair they had a devout jew on Arrow and it was an important part of his character. However this bitch is bullshit. Haven’t watched the show in a bit. Probably wont anymore. It kinda sucked before.

  2. Black & white lovers, lesbians, and now a Muslim? That show had so much potential but they just went with a completely unbelievable and disgusting PC angle from the start. Same with Supergirl; black & white lovers (not to mention that the black Jimmy Olsen has been a lily-white ginger forever or all the other non-canon things going on in that silly show), lesbians, and I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if they jump on the Muslim bandwagon next season.

    • ensite: Look it up where? Even Urban Dictionary doesn’t have a support definition.

      Come up with a good backronym and I’ll be glad to use it.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
