Superheroes Convert to Islam


Superhero Sholat

A number of the world’s superheroes, have converted to Islam. So far, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Captain America, Daredevil, Wolverine, Cyclops, The Flash, The Thing, The Incredible Hulk and Robocop have been identified among the converts. The Indonesian superheroes Gundala, Gatotkaca and “Si Buta dari Gua Hantu” have joined the lineup.
This painting, found in a noodle shop / art gallery in Yogyakarta, Central Java, provides convincing evidence. Perhaps this initiative came while the group was taking R&R from their covert activities on behalf of the US Government in Afghanistan. Clearly tired and distressed from the effects of 9 years of everwar, they were open to conversion to the gentler form of Islam practiced in Java.
Proof that these events occurred in Java can be found in the architectural style of the mosque where they are praying and in the clothes which their imam is wearing. Some have said that the imam is Sunan Kalijaga himself, but this is impossible as he passed away in the 15th century, long before the technology for Robocop existed.
If you happen to like this style of painting, and would like a similar one made to your own specifications, leave a comment and we can arrange a quote.

    Hi! I’m an fantasy pictures collector from Indonesia (born in Ngunut village, East Java, Indonesia), and like to put some links to this picture for my blogs. I have a lot of Indonesian Superheroes blogs : Gundala, Godam, Aquanus, etc. I want to share this post, and ask your permission. I also found that some superheroes do have their religions in comic books!

    I must admit that every religions (I found hundreds religions in this world) have the same ‘dream’, that someday, everyone in this world will be their member.

    I also write my blog here : http://indonesiansuperheroes.blogspot.com/

    Thank you!

      Hi Yosofat, thanks for the comment. Of course you’re welcome to share my post. Please not that my blog has moved to http://www.aboutindo.com, so a direct link to that post should go to: http://www.aboutindo.com/2010/07/19/superheroes-convert-to-islam/
      I’m hoping to feature some Indonesian movie superheroes sometime in the future.
      Yes, I think that it’s natural for people to share the good things they find. So when they find good things in their religion, they want to share it with other people too. Sometimes they become a bit overbearing, of course :))
      I’ll check out your blog soon, cheers.
