If I was a Superhero by tuffix If I was a Superhero by tuffix
Very very quick and unfinished drawing but I felt the urge to set something right, after an article about me that was published in different news (e.g. goo.gl/HnCTs4 and goo.gl/UtnkaY)

I am not taking a role of a victim and I am not only standing against prejudices about muslims wearing a head scarf - I am fighting any kind of prejudice!

If I was a superhero (btw, why do they always have a cape?) I would like to be some kind of "Empathy-hero". I see empathy to be key to success - on both sides. Sure, I do share some discrimnation experience with you, but most of my drawings promote mutual respect and serenity. It's not about protecting muslimas - they can do on their own, it's about realizing we're all the same and we all have something to improve, we all have to reflect our views and attitdes - me, too.

Awesome concept! Muslims wearing head scarfs is no problem at all. :)

True, people really need more empathy in that matter. As soon as all sides can at least partly understand eachother a peaceful co existence is much easier to achieve.

How exactly would you try to make people more empathic? Energy beam, ray gun, telepathy?

I would be awesome to see a Muslim superhero- Muslims seem very poorly represented in the media,

as far as I am concerned, a lady can be just as amazing as a superhero in a sensible outfit :-)

Then why do you have a cape!? It's not a costume piece, it's a death wish.

Also I think we can get rid of the tights. Superheros are now realizing that they look silly on the outside. Just look at Man of Steel, Superman didn't have tights in that one.

"I'm just your average ordinary everyday superhero!"

Thought of the song by Smash Mouth. :D

not ALL superheroes do the reason for such can be found here.


:) 

jokes aside empathy really is a super human quality and a blessing and a curse really when you think about how truly empathic people FEEL exactly what the person is going through so deeply they can become confused between their own and another person's perspective.

also i think you'd find this right in line with your direction of thought!

I came up with a character: The Veiled Detective (look for it).

Too bad ideas for a good story don't come as easy as it used to be.
